Has anyone noticed their paint chipping on their rims??? :(
I have only hand washed the car and have not bumped any curbs, yet i'm beginning to see specs of primer.....or whatever the light grey is under the dark grey paint on the rims. I had the dealer take pictures and send it to ford to see if there is a defect and see if they can replace them for free. The Tire/Wheel Care DOES NOT cover cosmetic stuff.....

Everything is too dirty here to see, but my hood is sure gaining thru thickness paint chips at a scary rate. These new enviro friendly paints suck for adhesion and toughness.

I have a chip in one of my wheels as well.

From what I can tell the Magnetic paint color is almost a perfect match so I will be getting some of that paint from https://www.drcolorchip.com/ and just touching it up.

Can anyone with a Magnetic confirm the color? Are they a good match?

I had this problem with my 2010 Sport. Unfortunately it started after the warranty was up

Ford has responded to me, saying, "This will not be covered under warranty because those chips are cause by rocks"

SOMEONE, please explain to me how rocks magically fly up and hit only the INSIDE of my rim in the same spot on 3 different rims?...... -_-

Would love to see someone who bought a sport to save for a possible sale at a much later date ... kept sitting with delivery miles
Show up in a Ford dealer and have them try to tell that person that it's rock chips

That sucks. I haven't noticed yet. But have a chip on my hood. One on a side door from a door ding. Multiple on the black painted parts of the wiper arms. This paint is WEAK. 12,000 miles in and this winter is beating the heck out of this car.
