Yes there was a couple of manufacturers who had that problem over the years, I've heard everything from wrong primer, different coating on bare metal before priming, to improper prepping of bare metal before primer, but either way, a good body shop will know how to deal with it. There was some of the manufacturers that were giving warranty on these for first owners, and some even covered second owners, but my guess is that your out of that range for one reason or another if not time itself. if your going to re-do the tailgate yourself, do your best to take it down to bare metal and prep it properly before you re-finish it.
