Paint peeling on a F-150 2007 XL

I'm really disappointed by the Ford Motor Company,
my paint peeling around the cover of a gas cap, fenders
around the door handles .. crack on the roof ...
I go to the dealer to show him my beautiful flaking, after 5-6 years ... I can't believe he told me he can't do anything for me ....
I'll spare you what I told him after that answer .. for $ 43,000 truck
Is there some who have had this problem .. surely ..
Is there just something I can do ..? I need help

Thanks,

I haven't noticed other trucks of that year with paint problems
Sounds like your truck may have had shipping damage and was repaired before it was sold new and the clear is peeling

Pictures would help

Tough to judge without knowing what sort of history and care the truck had...

Not sure why after six to seven years it should be Ford's problem, but you're not the first to expect lifetime warranty coverage.

Two options....new paint or new truck.

Have seen a few where paint chips around the fuel door. 04 and 05 in that area seems to be a problem. Flange for filler pipe moves and causes paint to flake off.

Such is life. Just passing through.

I have very minimal flaking underneath my fuel door but its nothing I'm worried about. Flaking around the door handles and fenders to me sounds like the paint has had a lot of salt and winter grime on it and not a lot of washing.

What's up with this sense of entitlement ? What can YOU do for me, right ?

You're not the first one to think Ford Motor Company owes them a lifetime of handouts, but why should it be their problem after three years/ 60000 km ?

Hey, maybe if you had invested in an extended warranty, you wouldn't be complaining about who was going to pay for it.
