Hi,
I bought my '08 slightly used, a year ago (March '09). It came with 8500 miles on it.

It also came with a slight bubbling of paint on the hood.

I'm wondering whether this might be covered by Honda's bumper to bumper 3 year warranty...?

thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Hmm, I would hope so.

Just asking....your sure it's the paint? If you open the hood, the metal is flat were it is bubbled up on the paint side?

Look the hood over underneath, and check fenders, etc. for signs of body work or aftermarket replacement body parts,to see if it's a replacement hood. Could have been front collision damage that was repaired, and some contamination or poor prep work on on a replacement hood when the body shop painted it. Though rare, this can also happen in the factory (contamination) - and if that is the case, can check if Honda will fix it.
