The brakes are giving trouble with the calipers, and I have replaced one window motor, and another is bad, and another is very very slow. Thanks a lot.
[email address removed], any help would be great. Not familiar with doing this.
I have same problem with paint bubbling in my 2010 Expedition. A known problem by Ford, but they will not cover under their corrosion warranty until a hole brakes thru. By this time you have a totally rusted out tailgate and likely the warranty is expired, hence their policy. Now no cost to them. Would love to hear if anyone has had success with Ford covering this before the rust holes appear.
You won't have a rusted tailgate or a hole, it is aluminum. You will just have a really bad paint job which doesn't bother Ford.
Vehicle owners with issues pertaining to blistering/peeling paint on Ford vehicles have taken the automaker to small claims court. This has resulted in vehicle owners winning repaints (some $5K and above). Owners have taken action and have received repaints or payments in NJ, MI, OR, NY, ID, IL, IN, MA, MD, CA and TX. Most of the vehicles were out of warranty, many were pre-owned. However they still prevailed. Details presented on the Ford Mercury Paint Peeling Facebook Site.
No one is going to completely strip/deoxidize or replace the hood and/or tailgate and repaint it properly for $1200. If you simply repaint the hood/tailgate without addressing the underlying oxidation, the paint is simply going to peel again. Considering that small claims court costs virtually nothing, your largest expense would likely be the cost of research materials from Zestar. As we are talking about $4K+ to address the issue properly, it seems well worth it.
