Paint and rusting at bottom window corners

I had a rust bubble at the bottom rear corner of my passenger side window that was re-painted under warranty.

I now have pretty bad rust on both my driver side doors in the same rear spot. I dremeled off the rust, primed, and hit it with the Motorcraft touch up paint myself since it was out of warranty, but it only came back worse.

I heard there were some issues with missing/improper steps in the paint process on some trucks and that Ford would cover it. I asked my dealer and they said they never anything like that. Either they were being honest or playing dumb I dont know.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Sounds like a question no one has an answer to. I would also like to know what causes this.

Its just the way the rocks and garbage splash up.in wintery areas that use salt especially the drivers side will usually get it worse because you have all the extra splash up from the oncoming lane.

I'm a big POR15 fan. When I painted my truck I used it as the primer for the rockers and everywhere there is rust. The Key to that is to topcoat it while its still tacky or nothing sticks right.

Por15 treats the rust you can't get with a grinder, and then locks it away better than any epoxy primer out there.

Look in the fine print of your owner's manual, because there is FEDERAL LAW that extends warranty for corrosion protection and emission systems well beyond that crappy 36-month-36k mile crap. Ford paid a local auto paint and body company to repaint ALL of my agency's 2008 through 2010 Crown Vics on the hood, top, and trunk because of peeling paint that was beginning to lead to rust issues. There may be a TSB (technical service bulletin) or recall out there that smaller dealerships may not be aware of or want to fool with, but an Oasis report would definitely list it.
