    I have a 2001 for explorer that i purchased with a badly crack and checker boarding paint on the hood (it look like a mud field that has dried out in the sun).

    I was going to replace the hood and have it painted to match. But since the purchase, the entire rest of the vehicles paint is now checkering.

    So I took it to a local ford dealers Body shop and they told me that FORD had serious problems with black paint issue in 2001-2001. But that mine was the worst they had ever seen. I asked him will ford stand behind their factory paint job, He told me to forget it, as ford will not honor a factory paint problem on a 2001, even though FORD knows its a factory defect.

    I requested a estimate from the FORD Dealer and he gave me a written estimate of $9800.00. I ask why so much! He said it was the only way to stop the paint from continuing to checker and flake off. He said it had to be sand blasted to bare metal, I asked him, the entire truck and he said yes. He said the entire truck and to do so, that they needed to remove and disassemble all the windows and doors, bumpers and trim, and body, and then send it to a media blaster to remove the ALL THE FACTORY paint to bare metal. I wrote ford and Ford never responded and the Dealer just laughed at me. He told me to junk my truck was his best advice and buy a new one.

    I took then took it to a private body shop and they said the same thing must be done, But they would only charge me $ 7800.00 to do it.

    Can anyone help me with this matter. The private Body shop suggested that I get it vinyl wrapped that way it would at least look nice for a couple of years.

    I would certainly visit edmunds.com and the town hall forum. I am certain that there is a Ford paint forum somehwere amongst the topics. Also, google “zestar.” They are a paint company that has been providing advice to other folks who complained on this blog about ford paint defects. Good luck to you!

    Bought my 2012 Ford Focus brand new. 4 times been in the shop for lunging/grinding/shaking transmission issues. Am on my second transmission and took it in a week ago. Has been reprogrammed 3 times. Issues still there. What is my next step? I don’t feel safe in this vehicle and I’m scared it’s gonna turn into a money pit.

    We bought a chevy spark2013 last year. and less than a year we’ve been going back and fort to the dealer’s shop and until they said that they will repurchase our car but as what they said that I will be owing the balance for my chevy and they will roll it over to the new loan that we will be getting for another car. and I was reading the lemon law it says that they should pay my balance and give me the enough money to put in for a new car. they were saying that the money I put in for my monthly payment for this car wont exist no more and that would make me upside down. its like i would be carrying the old loan and the new loan for a new car. please help.

    @Spark2013: It sounds like GM is taking advantage of the fact that you do not have a lemon law lawyer. We hear countless stories from folks who get a lot less than they are entitled to. This is why the Lemon Law offers free legal representation. Please visit http://www.lemonlaw.com/lemon-law-firm.html to find a lemon law firm in your state that can help.
