Toyota RAV4 2009: Why is the paint peeling off?

In the last six months the paint on my 2009 Toyota RAV4 Cruiser has started peeling off the front of the bonnet. I have been advised this is an issue with Toyota. Can you please advise why this may be occurring?

It’s usually the clear coat that is coming away from the painted surface on those areas most exposed to the sun. The problem is related to the quality of the painting process when it was done at the factory, and short of repainting affected areas there is nothing you can do about it.
