  1. Dragonflies leaving marks on paint

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I have a Meteor Gray 2016 hatch. Dragonflies love it. This time of year for about a month they bump all over the hood and roof of the car leaving half-inch long lines of yellow sticky deposits all over the place. It looks like fluffy balls of pollen. In the course of a day they can leave dozens...

    I have two interior items to discuss.... 1. Anyone else getting little white wear marks, like paint flicks almost, on your leather steering wheel? Tried using leather conditioner with no result. 2.for the hatch, im surprised how well the back fits my 80lb fox hound mix. With a blanket back...

  5. Will Scratch X 2.0 remove my swirl marks?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    My luck has taken a dip since I got this car.. I haven't washed it myself yet- only the dealer has. It looks like they used either the wrong material cloth (doubt it) or a dirty one when they dried an area of my rear quarter panel leaving some nasty lines in my black finish. Rather than taking...
  6. Marks on windshield on 2013 speed

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 News & Discussion
    So I just found that my windshield has a bunch of marks on it. I noticed it in the morning when all the water had gathered on the windshield. I just got the car Monday so I know I didn't do anything to cause this. My best guess is when they were transporting the car they might have put on...
