I had a friend of mine that is a body man look at the problem and he said it would be hard to fix the problem because of the oxidation from being an aluminum hood. At this point I have just lived with it but it is very annoying because I take good care of my cars.

My perfectly good 2006 Montego now has paint bubbling on the hood. Repair shop says $1000 to repaint but no guarantee. It could come back. Ford needs to replace this hood.

Montego Premier V6

The car is in very good condition but has hood corrosion and Ford will not fix it. I bought it new but the dealer no longer sells Mercury or Ford. Auto repair shop said a new hood is over 1K and then must be painted.

paint is peeling on hood paint is peeling on hood paint is peeling on hood paint is peeling on hood paint is peeling on hood paint is peeling on hood

I PURCHASED MY MONTEGO IN JUNE OF 2006, BARELY DROVE IT THE FIRST YEAR (2ND VEHICLE). AT THE END OF 2007 I NOTICED VERY SMALL BUBBLES ACROSS THE FRONT EDGE OF THE HOOD, LEFT TO RIGHT. AT THE BEGINNING OF 2008 I ASKED MY DEALER IN MERRILLVILLE, IN IF THEY CAN GET THIS REPAIRED FOR ME UNDER WARRANTY-ANSWER WAS "NO", WARRANTY OVER. AFTER MOVING TO DEMOTTE IN 2009 I INQUIRED WITH THE DEALER THERE IF THEY COULD GET FORD TO DO SOMETHING-AGAIN, "NO". THIS PAST YEAR I WROTE SEVERAL LETTERS TO FORD AND THEY DID REPLY. THEIR ANSWER WAS, SORRY THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO. I WROTE AGAIN AND EVEN ASKED THEM IF THEY WOULD PAY FOR 1/2. AGAIN THEY REPLIED, SORRY!!! AFTER SEEING THE NEWS REPORT ON TARGET 5 NEWS ABOUT FORD HAVING A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH THEIR PAINT A FEW WEEKS AGO, I THOUGHT I WOULD PURSUE THIS AND SEE IF THERE IS ANY CLASS ACTION AGAINST FORD. I HAVE BEEN TO 3 BODY SHOPS AND ALL 3 SAID THE HOOD NEEDS TO BE REPLACED, THEY WOULD NOT JUST PAINT IT, THE HOOD WAS NOT PROPERLY PREPARED FOR PAINT. THE FIRST BODY SHOP TOLD ME FORD HAS HAD A LOT OF PROBLEMS AND I NEED TO NOTIFY THEM, THAT WAS BEFORE MY FIRST VISIT TO MY DEALER IN MERRILLVILLE. THE BUBBLES HAVE GOTTEN LARGER AND HAVE PEELED OFF, LARGEST SPOT IS ABOUT 2" IN DIAMETER. THERE IS NO WAY THIS IS FROM ROCKS OR ANYTHING HITTING IT. THE BUBBLES GO STRAIGHT ACROSS THE HOOD IN THE SAME AREA FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. IF IT WAS ROCKS THE DAMAGE WOULD NOT BE IN A STRAIGHT LINE. I ALSO HAVE TROUBLE WITH THE PAINT ON THE BUMPERS. I AM VERY UPSET WITH FORD AND AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THEIR WORKMANSHIP, WARRANTIES AND CUSTOMER SERVICE. ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS SELLING CARS BUT NOT STANDING BEHIND THEM. I HAD A DODGE CARAVAN THAT HAD 300,000 MILES ON IT AND THE DAY IT DIED IT LOOKED AS GOOD AS THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. WISH I HAD IT BACK! IF ANYONE KNOWS OF ANY ACTION AGAINST FORD PLEASE LET ME KNOW-THANKS TO ALL
