Clear coat peeling

My 13 GT/CS has a two inch area on the front of the car that the clear coat is peeling. Took it to the local dealer three weeks ago and expressed my concern that the car only has 2400 miles on it and it is in this shape. The service manager assured me that he would let me know when Ford authorizes the repair, which sounds like a complete clear coat job, but three weeks have passed. Anyone else have a similar problem?

What's it look like? Pics?? Only way it would peel is if its had body work or been resprayed... Factory finish doesn't peel like that?

I agree 2 months ago to test drive a 2014 5.0 the sales guy told me that it had some kind of special spray that helped the paint for about 6 months against any scratching . Supposedly the interior also had a different spray on the cloth seats which prevented against any drinks spilled.

You're referring to an environmental protection package... its a polymer sealant for the paint... nothing to do with the actual paint... just a sealant for the clear coat

Just a wishful thought...

I'd love to see Ford use a diamond clear-coating instead of clear-coat and polymer sealant. I don't know what the cost difference would be (if any) but, paint finishes would be near completely impervious to the common scratching/chipping/peeling we've all seen or experienced. A good example of scratch resistancy is, the '13/'14 center decklid panel finish. That sucker is tough as nails. I painted mine Race Red and my body shop spend a significant amount of time trying to scuff (with an orbital sander and 320 grit paper) the glossy surface. Initially, they tried Scotchbrite, to no avail. It took a lot of effort to barely alter the glossy shine. In addition to that, it was necessary to prime the panel, prior to painting, because the scuffed surface was so smooth, it wouldn't properly hold paint. (according to a regional automotive paint company specialist.) Wouldn't it be nice to be at-ease about potential rocker/fender chipping, surface scratching and paint/clear-coat peeling? I'd like to see our wheels protected with the same coating.
