Paint Bubbles on Right Door and below small window!

So I hosed all the salt off my car today and was drying it and noticed all these spots. Dozens! The looked like water spots and followed a water streak type line down the door. (Like something ran down the door then beaded) So I was trying to get them off and they wouldn't budge.... So I looked close and there freakin bubbles.... Looks like when I go to the dealer tomorrow about hard shifting when cold I am going to tell them about this too. I rinsed my car with hot water but cant imagine it was hot enough to screw up the clear coat. UGH!! Ill get pics asap.

My New England vehicles were all washed in sub freezing temperatures, frequently way below freezing, using hot water. I never had an issue, except for a skating rink in the driveway.

I had paint bubbles as well. Took about 4 days to fix a 1x1" spot.

Generally bubbles in the paint mean the surface was contaminated and something off gassed while the paint was drying. The metal wasn't sufficiently cleaned which should have been caught on the line. Just another fine example of the Quality Control at FMC.

Is this the first time washing the car? Is this a new issue or something you didn't notice before.

I would try a clay bar to see if that makes a difference.

It won't. This is a common issue. I had it as well and it required refinishing the whole rear.

Sorry for wasting your guys time lol.. I feel dumb. They weren't bubbles. It was some sort of chemical that dried on there and it was a to get off. I used invisible glass which took it off.
