Paint and Other Issues

My Tuxedo Black 2012 Focus is picking up paint chips like no other car I or anyone else in my family has ever experienced. Got a chip on the hood the first day out of the dealership. Installed a 3M guard - but keep geting chips all over hood right up to the windshield and some on the side of car. Was told today that Ford would not cover a claim on these.

Also have been in 2 times to fix air conditioning and dealership can't find anything. Cold air intermittingly quits blowing if car is sitting in traffic.

Also had the recall/adjustment done for the transmission. As of the adjustment car had horrible shudder in stop and go traffic. Dealership said they can't find anything and to give it time. Got a bit better after 10,000 km, but still not smooth. Car is spending a lot of time at dealers. Hoping the shudder will clear - but tired of air conditioning issue and astounded by terrible paint.
