paint issues 2016 goldwing airbag mat grey

Does anyone know of a class action against Honda for its poor paint quality. The problem is it is very fragile , any thing will mark it. Almost no ,if any clear / Matt coat. Speaking to Honda has been useless, they refuse to acknowledge a problem what so ever. They offered to paint ($1875)the bike but I would have to pay for the Labor ($2500/$3000)to remove and reinstal the panels. Doesn't seem fair! By the way this is my 6th Goldwing and I have never had an issue of any kind for warranty...any recommendations!!!

It's a well-known problem, and has been talked about quite a bit.

As for a class might want to have a look at your purchase contract. There are quite a few dealers/manufacturers today that embed a clause in the fine print of the purchase contract that you sign that specifically a) mandates binding arbitration for any disputes, and b) specifically disallows/prohibits class action suits. I don't know if it is present in yours, but it is becoming more and more common these days.
