Hatchback/liftgate Support Device Problems of Ford Expedition
Ford Expedition owners have reported 7 problems associated with hatchback/liftgate support device (under the structure category).
#1 - Hatchback/liftgate Support Device problem of the 2003 Ford Expedition
The car involved is a 2003 Ford Expedition. The paint has been bubbling on the liftgate of my Ford, Expedition for years. Just recently, that paint has been chipping, which I'm sure is going to cause rust to form. I've read many similar complaints from other Expedition owners, but I can't find a place where Ford has responded, except to say why it is happening. Will Ford be doing anything to remedy this for their consumers?. This problem occurred on Tuesday, Mar. 1, 2005.

#4 - Hatchback/liftgate Support Device problem of the 2007 Ford Expedition
The VIN of this vehicle was 1FMFK18517_. We purchased a used 2007 Ford Expedition el with 40,000 miles on it from a certified Ford dealership. After a few months we noticed that the paint on the hood and the liftgate was bubbling. We took it to the dealership and they said the paint was oxidizing, not rusting. The dealership tried to file a claim under warranty but it was denied. We have tried a second time and waiting to hear back. A vehicle with a $50,000 msrp that has the paint bubbling off after 2 and a half years is terrible. I will think twice before purchasing another Ford product.
