I noticed Flashman's post regarding paint defects on his NV. I also have paint defects on my new black NV. It looks like some kind of small particulate was in the paint when they sprayed the panels. I have these tiny raised specs under the clear coat in random places all over the vehicle. Has anyone else noticed this on their NV? Brought it to a different Nissan dealer (local) and they said it was one of the worst factory paint jobs they had seen. I always thought it looked a bit flat, but figured it was a commercial vehicle so it was just a standard paint job. I hadn't noticed the specs of junk until he pointed them out. I don't know what the solution is here. If they repaint the vehicle, that typically diminishes the value significantly because the next buyer assumes it was in an accident.

I would go with this dealer to get the job done right.

This sounds like 'rail dust'. For a new cars, they are from the transporting process from the factory to the city where you live. This is a common problem. For older cars, metal pieces from brakes can cause rail dust as well.
Here is one video of how to take care of it.
