Default Flaw in paint..should I ignore it?

Hey everyone,
So was washing my truck a few days ago and noticed that on my front fender (DS) there is what appears to be a flaw in the paint. It's a bump that has been clearly painted over. It's really small but still there, so I'm not sure if I should bring it to Ford's attention, or if I should just let it be.. I will try to get a picture of it if I can. What would you do?

I had the same thing. Maybe a 2 inch by 1 inch flaw in the door. Looked like someone painted over some fine dirt or maybe rust under the paint. Truck only has 2000 miles on it. I decided to have my dealer look at it. Ford warrantied it and I got it fixed.

Sounds to me like dirt in the paint if you look hard enough you will find a dirt nib in almost all the panels on the truck. You will find dirt in almost every paint job on the road today if you take it to the dealer they will probably send it to the body shop and they will wet sand and buff it out.

Tried to get a picture, iphone doesn't have good close up capabilities.

Almost as if my truck has a pimple.

Go to the dealer, they should warranty it. I had mine repainted due to this.

I found a small paint run in mine on the driver's side, just in front of the rear wheel. Dealer sent in paperwork and got it approved by Ford to fix. Haven't had a chance to take it in yet, and not sure if it's worth fixing. Worried that it may end up being worse after trying to re-paint.

I was highly impressed with the job they did on mine. They actually repainted my entire upper bumper pad which was great cause I had a few tiny rock chips.
