Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I purchased the vehicle in October 2013, owning it for a couple of months I noticed where snow had started melting I could something grey and realized that the paint was peeling and I could see what I thought was primer or something I called the dealership bob boyd in lancaster, Ohio since my car was still warranty with them which that got me know where. Then I called the Ford customer line to see if there was a recall on the paint.

Paint cracked and lifted from 3 spots on front of roof, front fender and rear panel area below roof. In all three instances, the paint has separated from the body leaving area exposed to rust. Paint in question is palm beach edition birchwood silver. A number of experienced body painters report that this has been an ongoing problem peculiar to this color. Complaints to Ford have been ignored.

Paint began peeling on the rear deck lid. Then we noticed the roof started too. Then the hood. Since writing my letter to Ford Motor Company, the problem has gotten worse. This vehicle only had 52,000 miles on it when this started and they have denied any relief.

Paint on roof is blistering and peeling. We noticed it last week as the peeling is lifting real high from roof surface. It looks as if it has blistered thru the clearcoat as well as the paint it's self. It is down to bare metal no primer, not showing signs of rust yet. 08/08/10, our Grand Marquis is a 2007 silver/grey in color. We live in nc. Otherwise we love this vehicle and have had no other problems.

Paint failure where the top meets the main body. The paint blisters and then peels off. I believe it is the top coat failing; it looks like the primer is intact. I see no rust, but that may be due to the fact that the sheet metal is aluminum instead of steel. The problem continues to grow and is spreading out. I suspect that the paint application atg Ford is flawed.
