Not resolved

I have a 2010 Ford F 150 that Ford has refused to honor their corrosion warranty.Has to be perforated.

The paint exhibits bubbling with rust under paint surface yet not weeping through the paint. Obvious the corrosion is inside out meaning a perforation exists under the paint. I could push a screwdriver through it to the inside. Truck is only 3 years old with no other rust signs. This is obviously a MFG defect, which they should take care of and honor their warranty. The 5 year unlimited corrosion warranty is not worth ***.

After 4 Ford vehicles sadly this will be my last.

Monetary Loss: $600.

I have a 2010 Exp. Rust bubbles on the hood and the tailgate .

The bigger problem is that both under the door side panels are completely rusted out . Clark Howard said that Ford obviously knows about it but until people die and it bring bad publicity they won't do anything about it . Repainting will NOT help . The hood and tailgate must replaced .

I enjoy our Exp. but I HATE FORD .


Warranty had expired for three months only on my Explorer Ltd 2013 when I reported the bubbling paint on the hood. Have been turned away by Ford Canada, and threated like I was a nobody.

As good for customers as DDT for mosquitoes...

Ford Sucks, They treat customers like Harley Davidson. Their

warranty is as valuable as toilet paper. Don't buy their sorry

cars or trucks.


Ford is the worst company ever,

They wouldn't do anything, doesn't matter if you still have the warranty.

Will NEVER buy ford again.


I purchased my 2010 F150 New in February 2011. The front aluminum hoods' paint is bubbling where it meets the grille.

The Ford Dealership, where I purchased this vehicle told me that ford will only honor 2 years on the paint. I went to a local, reputable body/paint shop and the estimate was $2,200 to replace the hood. The manager told me that several ford vehicles with aluminum hood have the identical problem.

Not paying $2,200 and will fight ford.

How did you make out with your fight with Ford? Did they ever make good?


I agree, this will be my last Ford. Same problem with a 2011 Explorer Limited. I am now looking to join a class action suit.


Ford told me my 2 year warranty was out by 25 days and that the 5 year corrosion warranty would not cover this defect unless the metal was perferrated all the way through. OK you screwed me ford, thanks

Unfortunately that is the same result from all manufactures. Sad to say


According to an insider within Ford, it is actually cheaper to contest than actually replace thousands of aluminum components. The expectation is that the owner will simply become frustrated and/or just walk away. I was told that get some satisfaction is to pursue legal avenues.

I have the same problem with a 2012 Mustang. Just three years old, garaged, 15k miles.

Ford refuses to repair or replace. My suggestion is to contact a lawyer. My lawyer is fully aware of the problem and is confident in the outcome as he has represented another client with the same problem, only in this case it was a tail gate on a Ford pickup.

Good luck. And yes after 6 Fords, this is my last.

As a foot note, a class action law suit is proceeding.

Any chance of sharing your lawyer's name?

This is my second expensive Ford in a row with rust/paint problems. This time it's a 2014 Ford Explorer 2 doors are bubbling and starting to show rust. Just a matter of time before the other doors, Hood, rear hatch, etc.

Same problem you would think if this has been going on for years they would have fixed it. I understand that the hood is made aluminum.

Its not rust its corrosion and it may never perforate for years but it will bubble forever. The front lip of the hood on my 2013 Explorer is corroding all the way around after having two areas fixed under warranty and now they say they will pay for only half now that its its out of warrenty by few miles. At first they were not going to pay anything. They should pay all of it.

Love the car but to have something like this still like new auto really ruins owning a nice car. It is a obvious defect is what makes me mad.


Same problem with 2011 Explorer Limited, and same answer from Ford--even though I also bought a Fusion Titanium the following year. Now we're negotiating......which is total BS! I can say this, if it costs me anything to fix this problem, it's going to cost them a customer for life.

2011 Explorer Ltd - also the same problem, same response from Ford, it has to be perforated!!!!! What a bunch of ***.

Bye Bye Ford, should have listened to my friends 3 years ago. Too bad.... we enjoyed the car but won't ever do business again with a company that doesn't honor their warranty.

Also, 2 foot long by 3" wide piece of window trim on driver side flew off as I was driving on the expressway last week - Ford says "sorry, not covered". POS


2011 Ford Explorer Limited... Same problem.

The whole front hood has corrosion on the front lip from headlight to headlight. Ford will not fix!!


2008 Ford Edge Loaded of the showroom floor paid 42,000.

Rust started over the drivers rear well can push a screwdriver through as well. Bought the extended warranty and ford will not cover the rust.

My last Ford I will ever buy...

Stay away cars should not rust in 5 years. Ford was no help at all!
