07 Edge (rust on body)

Question

I bought my edge back in march of this year. One day after I washed it I noticed some rust forming in the quarter panel on both sides. It just started to bubble. I was wondering if maybe Ford has some kind of warranty on it? Also was wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

 

Thanks,

Matt

I doubt there is any kind of warranty left that would cover the paint, especially on an '07. I haven't had any paint issues with my '07. What color did you get?

I think there is a 5 year warrenty on paint. But i do believe that it

only covers perferation and will not cover survice rust.

The paint color is dark amethyst metallic. Well the first owner was from Michigan. Maybe the harsh climate in the winters maybe is the reason but within 5 years shouldn't be doing this. I dunno thanks for the help.

I have been having the same issue going on that I only realized it about two months ago, which is 3 months outside my warranty! Ford will do nothing for me even though the roof is completely ripped up all over from the paint peeling upwards and now rusting, the side pannels, and hood are now beginning to do the same! Ford is horrible with this!!! If anyone has figured anything out please let me know!

2007 cream color Edge with pin hole sized rust appearing on both doors. Is there anything that can to done to prevent this from causing further damage? From what I am reading it looks like Ford is not interested in helping, is that true?

My 2007 has no rust what so ever. Helps to live in the south, where it doesn't snow......

No, Ford won't help. It's an 11 year old used car, why would they?

 

You can treat it with a rust converter, then spray it with rust inhibitors. You could also replace the door with one from a junkyard (although I think you won't find a nice one in that color- no way), or if you want to do it right, cut out the rust and weld in new and re-paint. I gotta think only the spray can treatments are worth it at this point in it's life.

 

Now, 10 years ago, it'd have been nice if someone dumped a can of Amsoil HDMP or some Boeshield down in the doors, but it's too late for that now.

Because you describe this as "pin hole rust spots" and its a light colored car, it sounds like "rail dust". Small metal particals that become embedded into the clear cost and rust. Heres a website that discusses how one can go about removing fhe particles.
