      It could also be quality of paint.

      2014 Explorer Limited

      I'm looking to purchase a 2014 Explorer Limited with the known paint bubble issue on/under the hood. The owner has written verification that Ford will rectify (my words) the problem, but unknown what they will actually do. The owner has the letter and received it prior to the vehicle hitting 36,000 mi. It now has 37,000.

      I'm going to assume the correct approach would be to let the current owner complete the repair with Ford and then purchase the vehicle.

      My question: Is there a warranty on the work completed and is it transferable to me, the new owner?

      I did see a Ford Rep as part of this forum, so perhaps Tricia can comment on this, too, because I certainly want to do this purchase right with warranty in place in case they don't replace the hood and the problem returns.

      Also, any comments on the liftgate as having this same issue?

      I can not answer what your dealer will do or honor. My dealer said that they would warranty the hood for the life of the vehicle. I have not seen any problems with the lift gate.

      Any Luck?

      After numerous issues with my explorer, I just noticed the bubbling paint on my hood. Has anyone had any luck getting this fixed beyond the 3 yr. warranty? I'm just short of 60k miles and have the extended warranty.

      Not I, was under 24 months, but over 36,000 miles by about 4,000 miles. Good luck.
