Mercury Grand Marquis owners have reported 21 problems related to paint (under the structure category).
I purchased the vehicle in October 2013, owning it for a couple of months I noticed where snow had started melting I could something grey and realized that the paint was peeling and I could see what I thought was primer or something I called the dealership bob boyd in lancaster, ohio since my car was still warranty with them which that got me know where. Then I called the Ford customer line to see if there was a recall on the paint.

Paint started to peel in the front center of the roof, a small spot. I thought a stone or rock hit it. Then around the sides of the back windshield. This spring the hood started to peel also. First in one spot then in multiple spots. It starts by a bubble, then it pops and peels off in chips, which stick to the windshield at times. Then it starts to peel off in big pieces. At all times it peels down to the bare metal. It definitely appears that the affected areas(parts) are not primed. When driving you can see the paint start to lift off and let go. This problem seems it will not stop until the whole hood and roof are bare. Seat belt light does not go off when buckled. You can attempt to buckle and unbuckle multiple times it works and does not work. Some days there is no problem and other days it is an issue.

The car had less than 38,000 miles, it had just past the warranty period and the paint started blistering on the top, trunk and hood.
I have 5 locations where the paint is peeling off. Hood, roof and back window area. I have seen other gms and lincolns with the same peeling. The peeling areas a growing in size. Pieces of paint 1 inch sq comes off at a time. I should not have this problem on a 4 year old car. I think Ford should fix the problem. I had a 1993 gm also with the same problem. But on the 93 car it started when the car was older.

Paint began peeling on the rear deck lid. Then we noticed the roof started too. Then the hood. Since writing my letter to Ford motor company, the problem has gotten worse. This vehicle only had 52,000 miles on it when this started and they have denied any relief.

Paint on roof is blistering and peeling. We noticed it last week as the peeling is lifting real high from roof surface. It looks as if it has blistered thru the clearcoat as well as the paint it's self. It is down to bare metal no primer, not showing signs of rust yet. 08/08/10, our Grand Marquis is a 2007 silver/grey in color. We live in nc. Otherwise we love this vehicle and have had no other problems.
Paint peeling rear bumper.
I notice small paint peeling at first around back window then since have sever paint issues on both sides of car near rear window going to roof . Also other points on car body paint peeling not staying to car surface . This car has now only 44000 and has been rarely used and mostly garaged . It was a gift from my parents whom are now passed away. I am at this point in disbelief because I only use this car mostly in summer . I am disabled and a us coast guard veteran and feel this is an issue from improper paint application or metal preparation form day of build . Recall needed a. S. A. P.

Paint failure where the top meets the main body. The paint blisters and then peels off. I believe it is the top coat failing; it looks like the primer is intact. I see no rust, but that may be due to the fact that the sheet metal is aluminum instead of steel. The problem continues to grow and is spreading out. I suspect that the paint application atg Ford is flawed.
My Grand Marquis LS 2008 paint have cracked and falling off the hood, top, and back. It is rusted on top were the paint have peel off and now its starting on the hood. Took back to dealer and was told that the paint on car was not cover. It start peeling two month after we got the car didn't have them many miles. So what can be done about my car peeling paint. Every time you wash the car more paint coming off. After that the engine cooling system went out and they told me they are responsible.

Paint flaking and peeling off various body parts of my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis. Nothing has been done yet.
The paint on this vehicle has bubbled and fell off the car, all over the car in various places. There does not appear to be a pattern to the damage, except where the window wash squirts there is some discoloration and rust. Preventative measures have no affect on the paint coming off as multiple washes and or waxes do/ did nothing to prevent it from continuing. Part of the damage follows a rivet or welding line on the hood where it is welded to braces on the bottom of the hood, other places appear to be high wind or high stress areas. The paint feels fragile , has no resistance to breakage and appears to be a well known defect when researched. Sanding , resurfacing and repainting helps some, but unless the whole car is redone it is ugly and very hard to control and it is also disappointing.
