I have a new 15 Rav 4 XLE and I am kinda disappointed with the amount of clear coat on the front bumper. I already have some chips and dings and the car is not even a month old. I have not driven behind any dump trucks or driven through any construction sites.

Anyone else experience this?

Quite common actually. Welcome to the touch up paint crowd.

Yea, same here, my 3 month old at the time LE was hit with a rock on the front bumper while driving on the highway, the painted portion, put a good sized ding in the bumper too. First vehicle that was ever hit like that, as I do quite a bit of highway driving. Bug deflector didn't help in this case, I guess nothing I could have done would have prevented the damage.

You need to wash you car before taking pics. Too much dirt to see details in the paint.
I do see some "orange peel" in the last picture. Unfortunately I have the same on my 2008 from factory, maybe 5% of my RAV.
