Focus 2013 Paint Peeling Around Boot.

17 posts in this topic

Hello

Any one had any problems with fords paint finish?

I just purchased a 2013 ford focus but the paint finish around the boot shuts is terrible and the paint has started to peel off of the glued parts.

Fords should be ashamed of their work man ship.

They said they would touch it up!!!!! I don't think so punks I'll add some pics. Any advice people

If you don't like the workman ship you can go to them and tell them you want it resprayed. But looking at it, touch up might just do the job. Get it done if you think it still looks rubbish then go with the next step suggested by them. Until they give up and say take the other car, or we will respray it.

Sounsd to me like you should contact Ford Customer Service courtesy of Head Office, argue that it is an apalling answer to touch it up with aerosol or touch up paint and argue the quality is not suitable and you expect a suitable respray
