Paint run!!

Well today while getting in the truck she noticed a paint flaw under the front passenger window trim. I went to look and its a pretty good paint run. The bad thing is its not smooth. It it pretty rough in texture. I am not to happy to say the least. Is this a warranty issue or am I hosed cause I didn't catch it when I picked up the truck??

If you have had the truck less than 90 days, they will do almost anything to it. They give you enough time to find this stuff. Sounds like a simple fix so I think they will make you happy, no problem.

hopefully it can be sanded and buffed out bc if a dealer had to repaint my new truck Id kill someone.

I wouldnt trust a dealer to do any body/paint work on my truck

You should be fine i wouldn't worry, if it were a scratch or dent i would say you might have a problem but that is an obvious factory mistake

I found 3 small dents in the drivers door about a week after I got it and they took care of it.

Well, at least you weren't getting into a Chebby.

Ford didn't make record profits by intentionally screwing folks. Take it back and see what they want to do.

Ok here's the deal. I took it to the dealer and had the body shop look at it. They seemed to think it looked like it was a paintless dent repair. So they had the dent guy come out and he agreed. He also said he didn't do it if that's what it is.

I am pretty sure I would have caught it when I accepted the truck. What I personally think happened is I took the truck back and dropped it off to get undercoating and paint treatment. The dealer uses a local place to do this off site. I think something happened there and I didn't catch it when I picked it up. I honestly didn't scour the vehicle that time. Didn't think I had to. Guess I was wrong.

Anyway, since its appears to be repair work warranty doesn't cover it. The body shop is working it out with the sales department on who is going to pay for this. I am confident that they will take care of me. Fingers crossed.
