Clear coat peeling on 17s?
 
I have a 2010 ses with the 17 inch alloys and when I walked out to my car this morning I saw this on my wheel looks like the clear coat peeling. I usually wash my wheels 2 or 3 times a week but I haven't in a while being winter in Michigan. I use a all wheel cleaner that is safe for all factory coated wheels. Any ideas on this and has anybody else had this problem?

It makes me NEVER want to buy a ford again if stock wheels that are well taken care of do this after only 2 years WTF!

I have seen this problem with many members who had the stock 17" wheels. one actually went to ford and they replaced his under warranty(= they said it was premature wear that the owner did not cause

Really? But the dealership where I live never wants to warranty anything I went they because I had shifter noise and they said "they can't replicate the problem"

With warranty repair and such it completely and totally comes down to how helpful each dealer is. The one where I purchased my car brand new in 2010 doesn't mind my mods or anything and repairs or replaces anything that could cause the problem via their guide for the symptoms.

But the dealership here where I attend College refuses to help for crap lol
they say the same as yours, we didn't find anything wrong.

Try another dealership within driving range, as long as they are a certified FORD dealer they must service your car to warranty(=

I have been to one and from what I hear from freinds the other one is just as bad I hope ford fixes this costumer service issue. This is what's keeping me from buying another ford. Too bad cuz I like there car line up.

I have a feeling Crystal from Ford Customer service(keeps an eye on FF) will chime in before too long and make sure you have no more customer service issues from your local dealerships(=

I really hope so. I love my car and would buy another one if the service problem is fixed

When I bought mine, it had the peeling issue. I just plastidipped mine, although I didn't do too well with it, they look good
