Sounds like the same issue I had after removing the vinyl on my Malibu. The rust was still active. I prepped - ground, sanded bondoed and primed and was deciding on my finish - it started doing the blistering at the primer - most noticeable at the C pillar - the ending line of the vinyl where the chrome strip had been. Took it to a body shop and they stripped all the bondo off with wire wheels and surface grinder - then etched it with an acid compound and neutralized the acid with an alkaline compound. The etching was the only step I at that time was not aware of. Doesn't mean you have the same issue though - there are thousands of things that can go wrong. Sweat can ruin a paint job if the prep work has the prep guy sweating all over it and its not addressed (the residual salt is problematic). Silicone anywhere in the shop can get on a prepped surface - but I am fairly sure it's damage appears rather quickly - even before the paint is dry.

 

If its a good body shop let make all the excuses they want - while they are correcting it under warranty!

car was soda blasted,primed and then sanded back to clean metal then the bondo was added ..from what i know ...it looks like it is a problem when they sealed it ..just dont know ......looks only skin deep....i wantto take a peek under it ..but that may make it worst .and make the body shop mad .though they are not going to like getting this car back after 6 months of hell....and we are not happy to take it back ...
