Check your doors

So I have the rust under the hood issue which I brought to ford's attention. After I took it in I found a bit of the same issue under the trunk. Dealer got more pictures and ford approved a repair. Yesterday I was washing the car and found the same bubbling paint / rust/ corrosion issue in my drivers door near the latch. So the issue is not just hoods and trunks.

It just stinks that a brand new car needs paint work 3 months into ownership.

I have that over the entire top of my car. Have a warranty repaint approved, now I just need to find time to have it out of commission for a week. At 1st we figured it would come out with a few washes and waxing, nope. Then I read up on this issue.

They should be giving you a rental car for the week.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Hopefully a 2015. I don't want to not be in a Mustang if I can.

If I go in for warranty work, the dealership always gives me a crappy base 2012 Focus with the dealer's logo across the side! When I go in for my suspension issue, I'm gonna ask for a 2015.

No way I'm going to forget to ask for the 2015.

Update.

Body shop said the trunk definitely has corrosion and there's not much they can do to stop it. Some of the other spots may be something that got on the car before it was painted but they will check them for corrosion.

Only good thing is when it goes for repair in having them install a new spoiler.

Kinda off topic question... When you get your car repainted under warranty, say it's a full car repaint, can you change the color of your car?

That's what I'm wondering. Lava Red has been calling me.

Ugh, I think Lava Red is more expensive.

I would think a full repaint of a different color would require the entire engine and parts to be pulled out, and other items underneath to be repainted as well. Color changes are not easy.

My past V6 had rust powder in the two holes of the trunk's deck lid on the right and left side. Where is your truck deck lid corroding?

X2 if you change colors it is quite a price hike s they would have to strip the car for a proper paint job unless you want one of those Maaco specials.

No thanks. It was just an idea. I'll stay with Red Candy.

Bubbling on the right side of the photo. Usually around or near the seams in the hood, trunk and some doors.

Also the guy at the body shop noticed the front of thr hood on my '14 has a nice amount of seam sealer which was new to him. He said earlier mustangs fid not have that.

That's why I never drive in the rain, or wash my car.
