Went over 36,000 miles Ford is only paying 60% of my $2000 repair bill getting the hood and trunk lid fix on June 8th, never buying a Ford car again after this.

Why don't they honor the corrosion warranty? The way that the service advisor explained it to me, she said that it was corrosion on the hood that caused the paint to bubble. The corrosion warranty is longer than the 36/36 bumper to bumper warranty.

Although she did look at my mileage when I brought the car in. She said it wouldn't be a problem since I was still way under the bumper to bumper warranty. I didn't bother asking what would've happened if I had more miles.

If you have no choice but to pay 40% of that $2000, you might as well go to another good body shop. It should cost you less than the $800 (40%) you'd pay to the dealer.

I think you are right, at the dealership always over charged people, they are just fixing the part where it is peeling paint not the whole hood and trunk lid $2000 for that is way over priced

Are you sure they're not painting the whole hood and trunk? The reason that it starts to corrode and the paint bubbles is either because they didn't use sealent on the aluminum before painting it or because they used the wrong sealent. I forgot the exact cause, but my service advisor said that the proper fix for it is to put sealent on the entire hood and repaint the entire hood. She said because the whole hood is aluminum, the corrosion can happen anywhere on the hood, but it usually starts out at the edges.

Either way, I still think you can get a better price at a reputable body shop. As you said the dealers are usually more expensive, and many dealers actually outsource the body work to outside shops.

The paint is not covered under the corrosion warranty. And it is not really a warranty against corrosion, only against "rust through" which is nearly impossible with aluminum. Remember aluminum will not corrode when exposed to air. This defect only occurs when the aluminum is sealed off by the paint. If you have bubbles in the paint under the hood, scraping them off will stop the process by exposing it to the air. Otherwise they will continue to grow and spread.

If I remember correctly it was 7 days. Service advisor said they had a couple cars in the shop for the same issue, so not sure where I stood in line.

Another thing to note for guys that have stripes on the hood. Ford did have my hood re-striped free of charge, but they made me wait 40 days before doing the stripes. They said as per DuPont paint (said that's the factory paint they use), it is recommended to wait a minimum of 40 days for the paint to fully cure before applying anything to the paint, such as vinyl stripes. They said they could stripe the hood right away, but that would then void any paint warranty. Needless to say, I was not very thrilled driving the car with missing stripes on the hood for 40 days.

Well the dealer by my house told me they needed my car for 3 days. Okay no biggie. But no loaner. Long story short I didn't buy the car from them so they don't care to give me one. Called ford customer care and got a claim number. I was told to call the dealer back and give them this number and that it "opens up different avenues". Well the guy I talked to was kind of a smart *** so I was a dick to them on the phone. I'm pretty much over it at this point.

Yeah mine was in there for about a week as well. They gave me a rental car though... It was a convertible v6 mustang which wasn't a big deal until I realized they only gave me the my key and it wouldn't go past 80 and if your seatbelt wasn't on the radio stopped!! Those bastards!!

Add me to the list. Quarter-sized bubble on the leading edge of my hood now, and more at the seam on the underside. I'm outside of the B2B, but inside of a 75K extended service plan and still have the corrosion warranty.

Will see how far I can get when I bring the car in for the Takata airbag recall. Sadly, there has been a steady stream of disappointments with my car, which makes me hesitant to consider another Ford after this.

If they won't warranty it, I might consider a fiberglass or CF hood. Do any of them replicate the stock look? I'm not really looking for any heat extractors or scoops since I have a V6 (would be a little to bling-y, I think).

^ I think you do. Looks like your paint's separating? The rot usually starts from that seam on the underside and works its way up from there.

Man can't believe these cars get out of the factory looking like this. These cars have a lot of paint issues.

The topcoat layer also is really thin and chip-prone. Probably a cost-cutting measure.

I may just go with a matte black car wrap instead of re painting my car, cheaper, and looks good.

Hate to bring this thread back up...

Has anyone had the bubbling come up again after having it "fixed" by ford? I had my hood repainted by ford under warranty about 14 months ago. Today as I was walking up to my car, I just happened to notice the bubbling again. Same exact spot on the hood as the last time.

I will wash the car in the morning and inspect it a little closer. Will try to go by ford in the afternoon, and see what they say this time... They assured me last time that they had the proper fix for it with the new sealant...

I'm still under my bumper to bumper warranty, so I'm hoping there's no issues... Nonetheless, what I'm most upset about is that the last time they painted it, they re-striped the hood free of charge, but made me wait 40 days for the paint to fully cure, before they would put the stripes on... I really don't want to go through that again, driving around with no stripes on the hood for 6 weeks.


Does anyone have any more info on the class action lawsuit?
