Default Paint bubble, advice?

Ok i just clayed the whole front of the car, got to the drivers side and freaked out.

There is a spot right above the drivers side door that chipped off it is down to the metal, i thought it was sap. luckily enough there is another tiny spot just above it that is bubbling so i can prove it was a defect not me.

So the question...

When i take it to ford what should i expect/ ask them to do?

I got my 07 in may

the chip was never there before i thought it was a sap spot and tried to wipe it down.. and the paint went with it. but the spot just above has blistered a bit but you can see its just about to completly chip off.

Thats the thing tho, its on the body not the door, i dont want touch up paint cause itll chip off again while the body is rusting away.

You use high pressure to wash at the car wash?
This most likely caused the paint that was bubblin
to release and fly away leaving the "paint chip".
Water is probably under there and it will only
get worse and touch-up paint will not cure the
problem. Stealership warranty time. Hope they
can make a seamless repair and get the paint
matched 100%. I have heard of the aluminum
hood bubblin but not the steel above the door.[:@]
Be nice at first and see what that gets you.
Treat the dealership like your friend.
Explore all options before getting nasty with
the service manager, if you have to.

I had a bubble in my front bumper, took it to the dealer, they painted just that part under warranty, and it matched 100%.

I had the same issue with my shelbygt500. I took it to the dealer but decided not to have them repaint as it probably wont be perfect and it'll end uplooking worse. Furthermore, if i ever sell it the next owner will see it was repainted and won't believe it was for a small defect like that.

That would be about the easiest section on the car to repaint and way easy match in black; make sure the other side is perfect; if not get both redone. Tell them to besure they mask off the entire car for this repair. (You don't want excess paint and clear that is airborn landing anywhere else on or in your car)

I had a bubble on my passenger side rear quarter, took it to the dealer and got it rapinted now problems. Later on there was bubbling on my hood took it to the dealer no problem. There is actually a proble with the alluminum corroding (bubbles) on some ford vehicles including mustangs. If you ever have a defect in the paint from factory take it to dealership and get it painted!! (for free that is)

I had paint bubbling on the hood and had the dealer fix it. I was very happy with their work. Only problem is my warranty is up in November, if it happensagain I have to pay for it myself...SOB!!! I took mine to a dealer in Western PA.

see thats what i think is B.S. Im not a paint expert but its a factory problem, it should be covered reguardless of warranty status. At least stand by the product for a little more than the standard 3-5 years. Cause thats what most people want to do, get a paint job right after they finish paying off their car.

I argued with the service manager. I said how can you close the warranty out if there is an obvious, and now documented problem. Since getting the hood fixed I have 2 new spots on the quarters. They weren't there a weak ago.

I think alot of people here have issues with the factory paint on their cars.
