Not resolved

I just got off the phone with FMC, this was my 4th call with the company. I reported the issue of rust to my local dealership who took pictures and submitted them to FMC and ask me to contact FMC Customer Relations to open a case. I have also followed up with a detailed letter of my frustration and disappointment in a company I was so proud of for not taking the government bailout during the 2008 economic crisis. So proud, that my husband and I purchased stock in FMC.

My 2010 Ford F150 FX4 has two rust spots on the cab area. Both of the spots are not "perforated" as FMC requires in order for the company to honor their 5yr corrosion warranty. They don't seem to care that within the next 2.5 years there will be perforation and it will require much more work to correct the issue, since the dealership has already pointed out the waterspot on the interior cab caused from the rust.

Ford continues to stand on their "perforation" disclaimer, assuming they will get lucky and not have to take care of another rust issue with one of their vehicles.

I am frustrated to the point that I am considering never purchasing another Ford vehicle and discouraging anyone I know from purchasing a Ford, for this very reason. I live in Texas, which is "Truck Country". With all the social media outlets, it will not be hard for me to get the word out. I appreciate pissedconsumer.com for offering me the chance to communicate my discontent with Ford Motor Company.

Monetary Loss: $1000.

Had an Experience with Ford?

FORD, GM, HONDA.....whatever brand. They all have the same rust through perforation policy. It isn't just Ford.

My 2010 F-150 truckbed is starting to rust out.Only has 71000 miles.

I live in Virginia and we have mild winters with little snow. FMC says its a dealership issue. The dealership won't do anything about it.

Don't buy from Sheehy Ford of Richmond.$2500 to repair rust damage.

I've got a simular problem on my 2013 ford exployer.My hood has corrosion all around the front.

Found out its an aluminum hood. It's not a hole yet but it's corroded underside and outside. They only want to pay half if the price to fix. So the problem is the warranty is from the company that writes the warranty .

It is noted with me now , that this is the Ford company name they want to be . I didn't expect this from Ford . The price on my xlt was just under 40,000$ . I didn't expect to be driving a car I bought new in 2013 in 2016 with a body that is starting to look 10 years old.

My 2004 Ford f250 has no rust or corrosion . Buyers beware of the new aluminum .

It's lighter but looks like it won't hold up as well.Thanks for reading.
