Have you sorted this problem yet and if so how.

A few more seem to be getting the same issue with the tailgate leak. Ford say the warranty is only for one year, as this is classed as trim. Disgusting if you ask me. how could Ford say this on a recent model and how could an owner be responsible to pay for a flaw in their prodution process.
Has anyone else had this issue? Maybe this would need a few owners to come out and scream for them to listen. Its obvious that Ford has to stand the cost. :angry:
