I bought a band new Toyata Corolla in November 2011. The car is under warranty. The car has paint issues - sand/dust trapped in the paint which comes off very easily, just by wiping the water from it and the primer is showing under the spot. At a place I consulted with, the guys even expressed suspicion that the car may have been repainted. The dealer says this is just a minor imperfection. I myself called the Toyota Corporate and they said they are going to send a field representative to look at the car. My concern is that they said it should be at the dealership where I purchased the vehicle and as long as the dealer says it is not a defect, probable it is not.
Is there anything I can do about it? Any institutions I can contact, any lawyers?Thanks to all of you for the help!

Is clearly sounds like some kind of the defect. Have the representative look at it and see what he says. You may also consider taking it to a reputable auto body repair shop and get the owner's opinion as to the paint quality etc. This may provide you with some ammunition should you need it. Have the car fixed under the warranty.
