My 2004 Grand Marquis is shedding paint.. every time I wash the car, paint lifts
off like a sunburn. It started small in some places but now its everywhere. Has
anyone had this problem ? My selling dealer said he never saw that before..yea
My guess is this vehicle has been repainted sometime in it's life. Poor body preparation has led the paint to start coming off. Also this is a 13 year old vehicle, they don't stay looking new forever.
LOL.. You are way off base.. I purchase the cra new from L&B Lincoln/Mercury in Bayshore Long Island.. The service manager said the peeling paint was from painting the car after the primer cote had dried. He said that the factory was supposed to paint the car while the primer was wet to make the adhesion work..He also said that I was the only one complaining about it. I would like to hear from other owners 2003/2004 Grand Marquis about paint peeling. I myself have seen many of these on the road. I laugh to myself about the fact that I am not the only one with sunburn paint.Yup.. they don't stay new looking forever.. but after spending $30000.00 you would think that the paint would last a bit longer !!!!
Glad you figured it out. I have not seen any of these cars with this issue in my area and that leads me to believe that possibly not a huge number of these cars is affected. I have seen some clear coat coming off though.
