Update. It’s taken this entire time for Ford to approve fixing the paint. My service rider just called said she got the greenlight and when can I bring it in, but I am conflicted. I’m nervous if they repaint it, it won’t be as good as factory, and I am also worried that it’ll show up on Carfax and make me lose a whole Lotta value of having a repaired truck.

My 22 is 3months old and my detailer saw a softball sized bubble on the hood, under the clear coat, last week. I spoke with my dealer and they said they will respray the whole hood as a factory defect repair. It will show up in Fords system as a warranty repair.

These arent exotics. Having a warranty repair isnt going to "crush" the value on a 80k truck. The values hold well already. The paint is a well known issue and will be pinged to a lot of Ford trucks in the used market in the next 2 years. I am not hesitating to have mine repainted.

I am happy they are trying to do right by you. Will they be repainting the entire truck?
