Flaking

Ive had my car for just about two years now and i noticed after about a year the clear coat is flaking on my back bumper in the corners by the trunk!
Anyone else have this issue?

Take it to the dealer and have it inspected. Or is it possible the bumper was replaced and the body shop messed up? Do you have a pic. I have a 08 and live in the NE and have no sig paint issues.

Hi Jason325 and popwarhomie,

A great next step is getting in to your dealership so they can take a look. Let me know what they advise; if you need any assistance from me, just let me know.

Jason,

Take it to an authorized Ford Dealership. Can you take it to Fountain City Ford? You really should not be having a clear coat issue in my opinion. Good luck

I used the Internet to discover Fountain City. You can take your car to any Ford dealership for service
