Mitsubishi Black Paint Settlement?

Okay guys I received a letter in the mail offering me a settlement of benefits because some people filed a lawsuit against Mitsubishi for 2000-2009 vehicles that were black. i guess factory paint wasnt good and faded after a while.. well in my case its true.. i have to wax my car often because if i dont it feels as if it doesn't have a clear coat.. well the letter is offering me an option of my car getting repainted or getting money back which is only 150... but if you decide to get it repainted its up to 800 dollars... any one else got one?

Angry Settlement

Yes, i did receive my letter. I got what i think is an insulting offer for a repaint job on my 2004 endeavor. The entire roof is delaminating and i have several other spots on the vehicle. The offer i got was 40% not to exceed $300. How gracious of them to let me foot the bill on the major portion of the paint job. Try to get a decent one for under $1000. If you can i would like to hear about it. Hell, even maaco charges almost that and i think they are the lowest on the pole.

how long did the process take from when you sent your claim in to when you got that letter saying how much you can get back?

Settlement

Yes i got my letter and was less than astonished. I have a 2004 endeavor with extensive delaminating and all i received was 40% or up to $300. Well you know as well as i do that you cannot get a decent paint job for under a thousand bucks. This so called settlement is very unfair and lacking to say the least. It is almost laughable if my paint job wasn`t so bad.

Paint Covered By Mitsubishi

I just bought a 2006 Black GT last week... I got a killer deal on it because it had excessive paint issues (Clear coat Pealing) on some panels. First thing when I got back to Michigan I took it to the Mitsi dealership in town. I have 2 months and 5,000 miles left on the warranty. They just called me and said Mitsi is covering to pain the panels that have issues (both fenders, both doors, both panels above the door windows, and the trunk). they are also warranting the dash (has cracks and bubbling) and they might cover the rear spoiler because it has a crack in it and getting moister in it also.

Just Thought I would let you guys know. I am so excited about this I saved about 5,000 because of this paint issue and now its being covered for free.

thanks,
Jay
