I have an 07 Vista Blue....doing the same thing in the same place. At 128,000 miles, I'm sure Ford isn't willing to do too much. lol

Default 2007 Mustang GT/CS Paint Problem

I also have a blue 2007 Mustang GT/CS with the exact same problem in the rear window channel. I had noticed the paint was starting to blister, now it is gone and small amounts of rust are beginning to form. I plan to visit a body shop in the next few days to see what they say.

Just curious, but is anyone having this problem with any color other than blue? So far everyone mentions blue. Sometimes you see a paint color on a car where every other color is fine but one color always has peeling white Luminas, for example. Every white Lumina has no paint on bit portions of the car but no other color is affected.
