    It kinda looks like a haze... I think it`s clearcoat burn but not sure. I`m just wondering if it will cause problems.

    Not totally sure but that looks an awful lot like the start of clear coat failure that my last car began experiencing before I traded it. Started like small white colored bubbles and slowly grew bigger.

    what "thing" are we talking about? The haze and clearcoat failure people are indicating is if those are not reflections of clouds. Are those reflections, or are those the problem you are referring to?

    The little area with the white haze... is it clearcoat failure? Do you guys think it will spread?

    Looks like a clearcoat chip, large size. If it is just a chip it won`t continue. If it is truly clearcoat failure it will get worse and lead to a respray as the only fix.

    I can`t tell from the picture, but is it a bubble there or gone? Normally if it is a chip the Primer is dark. Can`t tell if the chip has been filled with wax or what.

    Well it doesn`t seem to be a bubble. It has no texture either...

    It has pretty define borders for it to be clear coat failure. I don`t see the haze in the picture. Are you taking about the dime sized white mark near the edge of the panel?

    Just want to say that the spot again has no texture, can`t feel it. It also seems to blend into the car when touched with water. It has been waxed over for sure.
