Paint peeling off

Question : I OWN a 2002 Proton Waja 1.6L MT. I noticed that most of the Wajas I saw on the road have their front side mirrors painted with their body colour.

My car's front side mirror is black in colour and the black coloured layer is peeling off.

Is Proton having a special offer for Waja owners to change their cars' front side mirrors as the quality of the original ones is poor.

Answer : Unfortunately, your car is nearly six years old and the warranty expired years ago.

Anyway, when you bought the car, possibly the mirrors supplied were painted black and after six years one would expect wear and tear and one cannot make a claim for poor workmanship on a plastic product that is subjected to our climate and intense sunlight.

It is actually quite easy to prep the mirror casing and repaint it to any colour that you prefer.
