Repainting the bumper fixes it temporarily but people that have had their bumpers repainted have had the issue reoccur.

My concern about it being fixed or my car spending time in the shop is if it does it again - if it's a design flaw - then nothing really is accomplished.

I have about 6,800 miles on my 2012 GT500.

I recommend you get a second opinion at a different Ford Dealer, ///austinl. They may be able to get a better look and possibly send pictures in. I also recommend you wash it before you bring it in. this way the pictures sent in are visible.

Default 2007 with scratches

My 2007 has the same verticle scratches. A paint and body man noticed them and pulled the bumper around and was stumped by how they got there as well as the rear bumper seemed to be secure. I'd bet that at speed the wind sucks the bumper up to the trunk. Best theory I've heard so far.
