|wkumtrider||Went and just checked mine, and sure enough the taillight has rubbed off the paint. Just like in the other photos on here. Just one more thing to add to the list of issues.|

After the r/rear quarter panel and tail light replacement I had to go back and space the new tail light out from the paint, again. The new tail light had already gouged into the soft new paint.. While I was in there, I replaced my steel spacer washers with rubber washers. I have clearance all the way around and no lens contact on the paint.
I feel bad for those who don't know of this issue and have to deal with the damage after it occurs..

+ all 4 doors AND hatch alignment out of spec
+ squeaking driver seat
+ all 4 front a/c vents rattling
+ something up in the sunglass holder rattling
+ audio would randomly turn off and refuse to turn back on...then randomly come back a few drive cycles later
+ driver window screech when going up or down
+ bad/whining alternator bearing
+ some grass or some sort of trash literally in the paint on the lower left rear qtr
+ 3 different rust spots bubbling up under the paint
+ speaking of shiat paint job, had more minor sand knicks etc in the first few days then my previous car had in almost 4yrs, and by 2 months had more then my 12yo truck!
Just absolutely horrendous for a new car in such a short span. A freekin Yugo would probably have held together better in that short amount of time! Obviously many people's cars are fine, especially barring any transmission/drivetrain complaints, but not mine! Mine was horrible! Best thing I ever did with it was got rid of the POS.

I have the taillight scratching the paint on the drivers side of my 12.
Unfortunately no more warranty though..

I can arrange for a follow-up call from your regional customer service manager (CSM) if you have questions about the decision made in your case. If you'd like me to proceed, send me a PM with your current mileage and I'll make it happen.

You're definitely not alone on this...

|1slofofo||I know a few people have mentioned that the tail lamps rubbed with the body (hatchback). I haven't had such severe issues, but I do think the paint is weak. My dad's 2008 Escape has less rock chips in the 80k he's had it than my '12 in the 20k I've had it.|
