Default Orange peel effect on 2018

Today I put a down payment on a blue 2018 CRV EX. I asked to see it. They brought it to me about an hour later. The paint is awful on the sides. Itís glossy but it has the look of orange peel all along the sides. Itís from the drivers door to the back. This is a made in Canada car. There were several other CRV s on the lot with the same ugly finish. Just wondering if this is common on the made in Canada CRVs? I have definitely rejected that car. The dealer will try and locate another one. Anyone have this issue with their CRV?

Not on my car or those I saw in the showroom, I guess I need to find out where my car was made, can one easily tell from the VIN?
