You can try ceramic tint. A bit pricier than regular tint but you get what you paid for. I have it and helped out a lot for our family trips to Vegas. Especially with my toddler and dog. Paint issues, check your manufacturer’s warranty. Toyota updated and enhanced their coverage due to this ongoing issues. You can always do a paint protection film to get that peace of mind. It really depends on how long you are willing to keep your car.I live in a hot So Cal desert, and (for now) have to park outside. Can anyone tell me which type of tint can help keep my Cross a bit cooler? Also, do I need to put a clear coat or ?? on the paint? I have had paint issues with other Toyotas, so a bit concerned. Thank you!
The Toyota warranty covers paint defects such as flaking or peeling for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. However, it will not cover certain types of paint damage, specifically, if it's the result of wear and tear and not a manufacturer's defect.
