So I just bought this truck a few months ago. Was washing the truck and noticed about 2-3 ft of the paint chipping on one of the grooves over the driver side roof. The paint was not chipped when I bought the truck. I still have a bumper to bumper warranty. I'm going to call my dealer on monday. Any thoughts?

Is it the paint or the clearcoat? I have clearcoat that's pealing off from a couple spots around my rear window. Like in the seam behind the glass and around the 3rd brakelight. I'd be interested to know how this turns out. I find it odd on an 07 that's been taken care of.

I had paint peeling on my 2011 on the fenders. There is a rubber piece between the bumper and fender that was rubbing on it causing the paint to peel. Took it to the dealer and they repainted the truck.

As long as you still have your bumper to bumper they will repaint it. I have some pics of mine but they arent very clear

sorry about not posting up any photo's forgot. I just got the truck back on friday from the dealership, roof looks like new. Had a dent removed from the pass side rear window where the previous owner jack knifed the gooseneck trailer. figured I would get it done and kill two birds with one stone. my dealership took care of the problem with no issues.

Proper washing and waxing regularly can help prevent this..but bad paint is bad paint no matter how well it is taken care of.

I have a white CC/SB 4x4. Looks plain jane, small crappy mirrors with tool box. I live down the street from your work. I work for the power company.

its where the paint cracks, you cant see it on light colored trucks but black you can, mine had fine cracks that looked like spider webs on the hood and roof, my fiances explorer also black is the same way and hers has a small spot starting like you stated yours did, I had my whole truck repainted, and hers is hittin the shop this spring.
