Consider yourself lucky. The paint is not peeling off. I am looking at replacement of the front doors because rust is bubbling out of the panel seams where the outer skins wrap over the door frame. This on a car never driven in winter and road salt! So, count your blessings.
Mine had entire hood replaced for that and later one door started to peel and bubble badly and they fixed the door but didn’t replace. I’m glad they didn’t replace cause I had horrible issues with paint match etc on other parts of car. Ford will not pay the extra money to blend body panels etc so make sure when it comes time for repair ask lots of ?s how it’s gonna be done.

These cars are less painted and more like candy-coated. Very typical to see chips; I got my first hood chip within 3 days of ownership. Personally I'm not a big fan of clearbra, so I just roll with it and may get the bumper repainted in a few years. Or replaced, if anyone comes out with a nice kit besides an ill fitting RS-look bumper.
