Subaru paint is notorious for chipping easily
Got any pics of the peeling?

No problem so far with the front end after 32,000 miles on my 04 FXT, but the black exterior finish of the plastic rocker panel covers is being eroded away just in front of the rear wheel wells. Sort of sandblasted by the grit thrown at them by the front tires. They are turning white!

I've got rock chips, but no peeling. Pretty normal for the paint if you are in an area that use gravel or anything else that gets kicked up.
