So after two months I?ve either been denied or not responded to by three different Ford dealerships. 2nd buyback request was denied. The Ford rep told me to not explain the issue to the next dealership I talk to. Just say ?the selling dealer is far away and I need paint work?. He said if I explain what the actual issue is they are going to all turn me away.

It?s almost funny at this point. I?ve been making phone calls and using my gas, and putting more miles on my car driving to Ford dealerships. And I?m doing this for a total paint defect from the factory. I feel like Ford should Point to a location, I take my car there, they paint it, end of the issue. Now the CS rep is asking me to hide the truth so a dealer will take the case.

I?m going to Better Business Bureau.

Wow, I could say a lot of stuff about that....Sounds like he was just pacifying you. I really don't know how Ford could release that paint job out the door to begin with. Did the dealer really not see this or what? Its one thing is you got say 5k off the price.

If the dealer noticed it, they didn?t say anything. The car was in their showroom so I didn?t notice it. In fact, I didn?t notice it until the Ceramic Pro detailer showed me. I was naive and assumed buying it new, the paint would be fine.

Agree with all of the above; and also: if local Ford is giving you the runaround; call Ford Care and ask for the zone representative for your area. Keep going up the ladder until you get what you need. Do you have a lemon law where you live? If so; may be able to invoke it. As a former painter; it does indeed look like moisture was trapped between the primer and/or base/clear. And: if you have to have the car refinished; you may have to legally disclose it if you sell the car. Ask Ford about diminished value; but wait until after they've refinished your car. Good luck!

Collected info and filled out paperwork with BBB. I thought about requesting a buyback and getting something cheaper like a fiesta or mustang, but I?ve decided to request another RS. My first car was a 2001 ZX3, then a 2003 SVT, and a 2015 ST. The RS was always the dream car in America I could never own. Now I am fortunate enough to afford it, and Ford to bring it to the USA. Its been a very stressful 6 months dealing with issues, but I want to give the RS another chance. I?ve been rejected by three dealerships now, but realized a repaint is unacceptable as it diminishes the value. We will see how Ford responds.
