Looks like the aluminum is beginning to galvanize under the paint. I'd take it in and have it fixed under warranty. They'll probably end up replacing the entire hood as aluminum is very difficult & expensive to work with to cut and sculpt.

Appreciate the response, I hope I don't have to deal with any push back by the dealer. I will post back once I have had the appointment. Hope this is just an early build QC issue and not something to be dealt with on these panels moving forward.

Welcome to the forum, but sorry to hear this. See this thread as others have had the same issue. But it seems Chrysler took care of them.

NO move to this weekend, I washed the van and as I was drying it off I noticed 2 pea size paint bubbles on the front edge of the hood, the crazy thing is I know these were not there last weekend when I washed it as I would have noticed. I am going to make an appointment with the dealer, but wanted to ask to see if anyone else has had an issue and I hope it is taken care of under warranty. I have never had this happen to any car I have owned, much less one that is only a year old. Pics attached and feedback welcome.

Just noticed the same issue on my 2017 Pacifica as well. Passenger and driver hood edge have paint bubbles. Going to the dealer tomorrow.
Did you guys have had any issue with matching paint. Does it look like panel was painted?

I had no issues with paint match, because it was black and my hood came out looking like new. The quality of the job has a lot to do with the skill level of the collision shop employees working on your vehicle and whether or not the dealership has a quality spray booth for painting. Good paint techs will make sure of paint match (blending into adjacent panels if necessary) and maintaining a factory-like texture in how they spray the base coat/clear coat. The spray booth controls the environment (temperature, lighting, ventilation etc.) for painting and helps keep dirt from ending up in the paint surface...

2017 w/50k mi - found one bubble appearing on hood leading edge.
Same problem with 2014 DGC - which was replaced under warranty last year, no questions.

My 2017 Pacifica Limited has the dreaded bubbling on the passenger side leading edge of the hood. The service manager took pics last week and we are waiting to hear back from Chrysler. I hope they back up their product as we love the Pacifica and I will not go down without a **** of a fight. We shall see soon and I will give an update when I get word.
