while washing my new 09 escape i found some bare metal spots inside the rear hatch door that has no paint on it ! open the rear door hatch and inspect all the corners and make sure they are fully covered with paint :doh: .

Wow, that's a shame. If you bought the highest extended service agreement, it might take care of it for you.

I notice a little bit of problem on mine in these areas as well, although I think it is just exposed primer and not bare sheet metal. I'm still having the dealer fix it next week anyway. While looking for this kind of thing, I also noticed that some of my doors have slight gaps in the lower front corners where the sheet metal is bent inwards on itself, thinking that I will have them fix that as well, maybe just use some sealant to close the gap so that water isn't pooling there.

Good info. I'll check mine today. How are they fixing this? Touch-up paint?
