RE: 1997 Ford Lariat truck - Defective Paint

The paint went bad on a 1997 Ford Lariat truck after only two years. Because the truck was out of warrenty, according to the way it is written, i could not get any help from Ford Motor Company. Although it already had around 50,000 miles on it i could not believe that the paint lasted just a little over two years.

What upset me even more was the fact that i paid $28,000 for the truck. After a few contacts with Ford i gave up. Now it is going to cost me $2,500 to repaint the vehicle.Maybe Ford needs to get a better paint instead of a better idea.
