Paint peeling...wtf?

Only have about 2300 miles on it since we brought it home in October. Sits in the garage a lot. I know it wasn't there last week when I rinsed it off. Driver's side rear bumper facia where it almost meets the wheel well. Under closer look it appears the paint is wrinkling then it split. About 1/4" long thereabouts. Obviously this isn't a paint chip, so the dealer will get to see this one.

So much for this car not seeing any warranty work. As usual, I'm afraid of what the dealer will do, as far as the potential for making things worse. But if the paint is falling of the rear fascia, I don't need that either.

Anyone else seen this type of thing occur on their car? (sorry bout the pics, I got a cheapo camera that doesn't do closeups very well.)

Thoughts? Opinions? Should I be concerned with just a spot repair or push for a complete fascia repaint -- could this be like a crack in the windshield that will just get worse?

I've heard so much about this issue that I constantly inspect mine. Does warranty cover this?

Sorry for the oops by the factory but it has to happen now and then is guess.
Sorry again it was on yours, a great looking car. Like others have said... probably should just repaint the whole part, not just spot paint. Good luck and keep us posted on the results.

The pisser is I didn't do anything to it. No bumps, scrapes, dinks...nothing. It just bows up and splits right there in the garage. Grrr. Oh well. I'm pissed today but tomorrow I'll feel better about it. Not like the engine locked up or anything.

Is there such thing as too much elastisizer in paint? Definitely get the whole part repainted, otherwise you'll be doing this again in the not too distant future.
