Hatch Gap

Has any one noticed their hatch having a bigger gap on one side compared to the other?
I was swapping the license plate bulbs for LEDS today and I noticed that my left side gap is quite bigger then the right side gap.
Is the hatch adjustable? Debating if I should take it in to my dealer or a trusted body shop.

I know it shouldn't be that big of a deal but its the small things like these that really bug me...

Mine is the same as well. However, I noticed all the CX-3s at the dealer had the exact same gap, so I'm not going to worry about this.

Well it does make me feel better that my CX-3 isn't the only one lol.

Wish there was a way to adjust it.

There almost certainly is. I think I might call in and chat at a good body shop. I doubt anybody at the dealer would be right for it but you could send them the pictures and give them a call.

Mine does have a slightly bigger gap on the passengers side (right hand drive) than the drivers side but, so little that I had to slip a bit of plastic between the gaps to tell. By eye, it simply is not noticeable.

You only have the right of way if the other driver gives it to you
