    Peeling rims

    Hi, I own a Mazda 6 GT 2015. After almost two years driving in Atlanta, I noticed that one of the rims start peeling (see sample area) (mazda rim.png. Not sure if this something that is covered by Mazda warranty?

    I agree. You gotta ask your dealer about that. Have you contacted them about it?

    Contact them ASAP.
    This is a known problem with the dark silver wheels.
    There was a special coating that was not properly done.
    The new wheels do not exhibit this problem. Only '15 and '16 ones.
    Mine was replaced free of charge (all four, new ones). New ones last very well so far.
    Talk to your dealer ASAP. Since yours is out of warranty, if I were you, I would be nice and plead the case.
    Dealers are aware of this problem.
    If dealer is not helpful, call MazdaUSA with case number and dealership name.
