Small quality issues

Thought I show ya'll what I've noticed on the back of my 2019 hatch. The cushion strip between the car and plate is coming off. Kinda ridiculous that my 2019 6k car car is already have issues. Also I have paint chip in the rear bumper connects to the quarter panel. I've contacted the service manager about coming in to get these fixed. I normally wouldn't care to much but since its a lease I want them repaired or documented so they do not negatively affect me during trade it.

Mine has a chip in the same area and mine is a 2018 with 8k miles. In my opinion, and from having 4 Toyota's previous to this vehicle, the paint is not durable. On my hood i have several small chips which are pretty noticeable due to the Crystal White Pearl and base coat.

Let us know how you make out!

Sadly because of environmental rules and regulations modern day automotive paint is crap.

Same issue from your pic of the rear. My rear hatch piece that is somewhat wonky.
And yes, the paint sucks and I have rock chips in a lot of places after 2 1/2 years.
I'm over it and I just let em be.
