I have a 21 plate Niro in ocean blue. The paint is coming off the roof. At service they said it was a stone chip, then when it went back due to an oil leak they stated it was bird poop and not covered on the insurance. How can the paint be coming off after just a year. Have owned Nissans for 12 years and never had this happen. Any help with how to deal with this at the garage.

Presumably you are talking about a Kia dealer (garage) and the paintwork warranty (insurance).
You need to get an independent diagnosis from a vehicle paintshop. Or, take a photo and send it to the local press to kick up a stink.
