So just want to let everyone to be careful and keep an eye on their rear hatch before problems really start. I noticed paint peeling and surface rust developing on the right side and decided to have a family member repaint the hatch to fix t he problem before it got worse. He took off the plastic piece (where the ford emblem sits) and this was the extent of the paint peeling and surface rust problems underneath...

It's pretty obvious that there was a defect in the manufacturing allowing that plastic piece to bounce around and start scraping the paint...

After discussing this with Ford Canada, despite this being an obvious defect in the manufacturing process, it is not covered by warranty.

Keep an eye on your plastic trim. If it starts peeling/ bubbling along the edges, be warned, there is likely hell going on underneath.
