Water based paints

Anyone have issues with paint on these cars? I found it chips easily and saw it stained yellow around fuel cap on inside and body on pump fuel and small Crack in paint on inside below fuel cap. Managed to lighten it with meguairs products but can it be removed completely. I have the pearl white paint. It's really annoying. Never had this issue on my other mazdas

I've never had any issues personally but thin paint is a common complaint amongst many Mazda owners.

Yup, it chips easily. I have the ceramic metallic. It's annoying but I'm learning to live with it. Until it becomes visibly noticeable then I'd take action and save some cash for a repaint :P I've bought a touch up pen but it really didn't make a difference (more like just cover-the-scratch kind of job). Not surprised here cause hey if is a touch up pen and not professionally done.

Thanks for the replies. Never had these issues on the mazdaspeed and the egi. Mazda needs to review this. It's horrible.
