I have no issues with mine fading. Can you take a picture and post it? It may be hard to see as it is metallic in color. And, yes, it would be covered under warranty.

Garage
Yes please post some pictures if you can. Mine has one funny "mark" on it from something (don't know where it came from it's mostly garaged) but i dont think I noticed any fading. I'll take a closer look at mine.

2015 Lincoln MKC is equipped with satin chrome front grille and roof moldings.

If they require cleaning due to stains, water spotting, or discoloring do not use Motorcraft Custom Bright Metal Cleaner which is used for bright chrome components.

The following products are recommended for satin chrome components:

I only posted what the manufacturer stated,I cannot comment outside of what they recommend, you are free to try, but you risk voiding any warranty claim by doing so.If you are really concerned take the vehicle to the dealer and have them document and repair, that will acknowledge your issue should it happen in the future.
