I have a Ruby red Pacifica with close to 19K on it and am having a problem with the paint getting blasted off the rocker panels of the van. It is really bad under the driver/passenger door and then at the rear right in front of the rear wheels. It's also starting to get above the rockers and onto the doors a little. At this rate, there will be no paint left at 40k. I took it to the dealer and they took pictures and they are sending it to Chrysler to see what they say. It looks like the way they are designed, they are going to catch all the debris coming off the tires and there should have been some type of protective film used. I have had the flaps on since new, and that's not helping much. I am curious if anyone else has noticed this problem yet or not. I think I am going to have to look into the running boards to keep the paint on this van. So far, other than that, I have loved the van and have had very little problems with it.
