Toyota Paint [water based?]

3915 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  noodlerooney
I've come across rumors that Toyota has been using water-based paint on their vehicles for the past few years, apparently because it is better for the environment. That would explain why the paint chips so easily on the front end...

Can anyone confirm this?

I also own a Red 2000 Toyota Solara SLE, made in Canada. If you even look at this car crosseyed, it will chip. Next to this, the RAV paint is like steel, maybe because it was made in Japan with less environmental laws?
