Currently my 2011 GT has the problem on the leading edge of the hood, but I have not yet approached the dealer to have it fixed.

I will take a careful look at the 2015 Mustangs, and if they have an aluminum hood, I would insist on at least a 5-year written guarantee specifically for this well known galvanic corrosion problem. Otherwise, I will not buy!
I think, hopefully wrong, that the front fenders and hood will be aluminum.
