Just wondering if ford Canada is doing anything about the vehicles which
are peeling around the gas door?
Mine has 30k mi / 50k kms on it and its starting to peel off.
I think what is going on is the plastic fill tube neck is vibrating and
chipping the paint
If ford does nothing, I was thinking about putting one of those chrome
gas door covers on to cover up the peeling area and hopefully prevent
the remaining paint from chipping away
I see 05's going with an area about 4" around the door all peeling
off... and 07's with about 1/2" to 1" mostly on the bottom
I don't recall seeing any with peeling paint.... car, truck, whatever....
Lots and LOTS with rock chips.... especially if some wiener leaves the fuel
filler door open and drives on gravel....
Now... we need to assertain if the concern is "PEEL" or "CHIP".
Well first of all, the door was never left open, i always take the care
to make sure the plastic is out of the way allowing the door to fully
close. they are not chips... the paint is flaking away from around
where the plastic fill neck begins.
Should i take some pics?
A couple photos are worth 1,000 words. Post them and put a link
here, I am unbiased and will tell you if its something that the factory
did wrong, but this is the first I have heard of paint coming off of
a vehicle that new.
We have a bunch of 07 or 08 Ford F150s at work, and there is none
doing anything like this.
