I have a real problem with my Focus, one which I thought I would never see again.
I have a late 2008 1.8 TDCI Titanium with 39000 miles, in Panther Black.
Both rear wheel arches are bubbling around the whole circumference with rust. I
don't just mean a little stone chip; I mean the rust starting under the wheel
arch itself, and spreading up the rear quarter with large blisters.
Needless to say Ford doesn’t want to know - which I think is a disgrace on a car which
is barely 5 years old.
I have taken it to a couple of body shops, and one even refused to look at it as
they reckon that you can never get rid of rust and it will always come back.
Has anyone else experienced that, and how did you repair it? Is this a known week point? I am annoyed at having the cost of the repair, but even more so if it happens regularly.
This is seriously testing my loyalty to the blue oval, which dates back more than 30
