Over the past year I've noticed the clear coat on my rear bumper starting to peal in some areas... I've actually seen several other Rondos around town with similar issues, some with massive chunks paint peeled off. Anyone on here having this issue? Any suggestions on what to do to protect it from getting worse?

Any of the horizontal panels are more susceptible due to continuous exposure to sunlight/UV degredation. This is magnified due to the flexing agent added to bumper fascia panels. I cannot comment directly on our Rondo as I installed the black protector pad after purchasing the car. There are a number of vendors on e-bay that handle these with pricing around $50 US. Once the clear coat starts peeling away, there is not much that can be done, except prep & repaint - or let it be and expect to see it continue to degrade.
