should have mentioned....mine is Pearl White.I have exactly the same problem. Flaking/bubbling off on drivers side and upper passenger side around the windshield. Called Ford customer div...they directed me to go to the dealership to have it evaluated. Did that, they contacted Ford with photos and samples. Ford responded that they will do nothing for my 2017 Escape. This is a 4 year old car with 29k miles on it....garaged. No rust...just paint peeling off around the windshield in chunks. This is either a paint or process issue. Not normal wear and tear. Ford will not back this problem. I will fix it....trade this Ford and my other Ford...and never own another Ford.....not ever. My word of mouth will be regular about this. Not a coincidence that this specific year, make and model has the exact same problem. Ford knows this. They are trying to take the cheap and easy route rather than back their buyers and own up to this defect.
