Yeah, I had the same problem with my 2006. There is a seam where moisture lays and rust forms from the inside out. I took mine to a body guy who cleaned out all of the rust and filled the seam with some sort of hard non water permeable compound and re painted the lip on the fenders. My 04 does not have a single speck of rust anywhere. It really is hit or miss with Ford trucks in every respect.

For everything including the paint work: $350.00. I thought it was money well spent.

Ford has a 5 year unlimited mileage corrosion warranty. Go talk to your local dealership service manager. I had my hood repainted on my 06 Fusion because it bubbled.
