The answer to your post title is always "YES", but yeah most of us have experienced this. Mine goes in on the 27th. They will repaint it. Sucks but what can you do at this point?

Yes. A class action lawsuit against Ford has been filed

So it's as simple as going to the nearest dealership and talking to them?

Yeah if you are still under your bumper to bumper warranty they will submit a claim (which ford always approves) then they will set you up with an appointment. Word of advise though, go to the dealer you bought it at if its possible. Otherwise they won't give you a loaner.

They might still work with you. But if not, well I guess you can see about getting in on the class action lawsuit. Some say that it can be covered under the corrosion warranty but some say dealerships have hassled them on that. Worth trying.

So is the paint itself that's the issue, or the car not being prepped properly for paint, or the painting application?
This a pretty common issue for the newer mustangs isn't it. There's been a few threads about it.
Which if you take it to a dealer, good luck.

Iron contamination in the seam of the aluminum hood. Galvanic corrosion undermines the paint and causes it to flake off. Repainting is only a temporary solution, as the contaminant cannot removed without opening the seam, which I guarantee you no dealer is doing.

Only surefire fix is another hood.

I think if you're outside of your B2B, you're SOL unless you can convince them that there is a hole all the way through the panel. That said, my steel trunk lid has two pinholes rusted all the way through the inner layer of the metal and FoMoCo denied the claim (with CSM telling me there is "nothing [she] can do"). The warranty admin at the dealer I'm using has kindly offered to take more photos and resubmit the claim, but I don't have my hopes up if Ford isn't even going to honor its own perforation warranty! Lame and disappointing in the extreme.

Is there a link to the class action suit. My car was the worst case my dealer has seen. Had bubbling in the hood, doors and trunk seam. All repaired under warranty BUT unknowns how long the repair will hide the problems.


Rollin' in my 5.0

I'll probably end up going with a fiberglass hood and making sure I don't buy another new Ford product.

That's why you need those heat extractors, so the hood stays cool and doesn't bubble up from the heat lol just kidding!

I wish I liked an aftermarket hood as much as the stock but I don't. Only one that came close was one of the cervini ram air hoods with heat extractors.

+1. I've been debating on the Cobra R hood vs. the Ram Air Type IV...don't want to be too showy. I'm leaning towards the Ram Air as the Cobra R's cowl interferes with flipping up the wiper arms.

My 2011 GT/CS convertible had blisters on the edges of the hood at 4 years old and 75K miles. I went to my selling dealer and requested a goodwill repair. No problem, he fixed it for free. I have always used this dealer for oil changes only. I have bought 3 new Mustangs from him since 2005. If you'd use a dealer for service, he will be more that happy to keep you happy. I noticed on this site that most of you owner dislike the dealer. Mistake. BTW, I work at a Toyota dealer as the warranty administrator .

Totally depends on the dealer. I will give a good dealer props (and my repeat business) all day long, but it's another matter entirely if the dealer damages your car while it's in for repair and won't fess up. The latter was my situation, and that was a dealer from which my family has purchased three new cars over the years. Some dealers are great, and sadly, some are dishonest and terrible.

^ that's hilarious, a few cars come to mind that take forever to change the oil, but they shouldn't take that long. Well one might.

Gunners are the worst I've seen for an oil change but the only take 25 min if you know what to do. Maybe some foreigns are more difficult but from my days in the oil shop it was always gunners I hated to see

Aluminum is more tricky to paint from what i've seen. Just crappy materials used to prep most likely.

Carbon Fiber hood will fix your issue though

Some Mercedes don't have drain plugs so you have to suck the oil out through the dipstick tube. Unfortunately, we don't have the factory Mercedes tool to do it. But our sucker takes about an hour and a half to suck out the oil out of a smart car. We were called to do an oil change from a local shop that had a 2011 Mercedes something. It had no drain plug and I believe it was a V8. So those are two cars I based my post on.

I meant hummer. And I have a trick up my sleeve for those Mercedes . I always would drill a hole in the pan and insert my own plugs with rtv sealant. Motor has to be hot to dry the sealant quick enough but it's always worked for me.

It makes a mess when you drill a hole but it's worth it. If you let all the oil drain out and clean up the pan good enough the sealant will defiantly have a good enough bite. Just don't over tighten the bolt of your ruin the pan.
