Default Different Clear Coat Issue

I have a White 2012 Accord that was purchased in September of 2011. The finish does not appear to have a clear coat. The vehicle is four years old and has around 60,000 miles (mostly highway). My detail guy tells me that there is no way the paint should be oxidized at this point. In contrast, the pre-painted door handles and antenna are still very shiny. Has anyone else had this issue? It is not the same as the peeling clear coat on darker finishes that most of the online complaints I've seen are about.

Was it brought to Honda's attention? How did they respond?

I'm taking mine in to the dealer Saturday morning, and I'll jump throug If they are unresponsive, it will be the end of my relationship with Honda. Since I just had it detailed, I'll trade it in on something else.

We have a 2009 White Honda V6. We bought the car new in 2009, and now we can see the car does not have any clear coat left on it. The paint is also start to flake off and the paint is becoming porus. Spot are showing up in the paint. We are very upset, as we had planned to keep this car a while. This is my third honda. I am very turned off at the quality of paint on this car. The paint is flaking off the car. We are hoping honda can do something. AT this point honda is not on the top of the list when we eventulay look for a new car. There are plenty of good quaility car to choose from these days.
