I've had chips on my car since the day I bought it used 2 years ago. Last week I had a rust spot forming and I had to kick it back and repaint. I don't think it's a but issue, but I can see it snow balling if you don't notice it.
I've always just blamed stuff popping off the road.

I was certain I was going to have to repaint the hood at the rate I was experiencing chips in the first six months - the paint seemed to fully harden around the one year mark.
My color, Red Candy, was a one-and-done paint, though, so maybe they had issues with it...

Maybe it's a deal with paint makers and car makers to sell more touch up pens ?
I work in the paint industry and I can say that waterborne paint is way less tougher than solventborne paint.
Main advantage for me of the water switch is the toxicity of it. (Less VOC ... volatile organic compound)
