    I don't wear a wedding ring, but mine is scratched there, too. Must be from my fingernails, which are neither long nor very hard.

    Tell me again how the paint issues are only applicable to 2017+ CX-5s. Unless you think they sprayed a different type of paint on the CX-9, the paint issues are related.

    I think you are misunderstanding. I think he's saying this is the CX-5 forum section so he is referring to CX-5s only.

    Fair enough, I was just trying to make the point that the paint issue isn't limited to 2017+ CX5s. If you guys are only concerned with 2017+ paint on CX-5s only, I'll bow out.

    Parked next to a Mitsubishi today that had the same scratch marks behind the handle. Why do companies not have some plastic behind there ..like my old Saab did? Every one of my Saabs did.

    Type these words into the search area of Ebay and you will find all the cups you can handle. All years are covered.

    Great. Chromes going to scratch too. And look gaudy as hell imo. One of the things I hate about the new CX5 is all the chrome. Hate chrome.
    Got anything else?

    I am not a chrome fan but my 18 GT is nicely highlighted by just a bit of chrome.

    Agreed. One of the big turnoffs I have about the Gen 2s. Can do a chrome delete around the windows, but that front end still...

    I only have direct knowledge of the vehicle I own but I doubt it's a model (or colour) specific issue.

    Saw a CRV with the same issue. Apparently quite common.
