Not sure if this is the right place to post but I'm at the dealer now and they say that while m car is approved for the lift gate paint recall they don't have the parts for a few months. I'm like wow ? they are so behind!

Welcome to the forum Jacob.

I can see you have some paint chips but how can you conclude that this is a primer defect?

Can you give us more details about your car and your location please.

CX3 NG Paint

Thanks for your comments.

All the front end and even doors have this issues.
Pictures a from hood, fender , bumper.

But its a primer failure.
Here is the reason why.

Paint has three main layers.
Primer/Base/Clear which has to pass a few test. Hardness / Adherence / Color Test
When a rock hits a painted part the clear which has between 25-35 micras will uphold the paint.
So when you see that a little rock scrapes away the clear, base (color) and primer the adherence is NG.
So i did and adherence test since I work where I have all this equipment and againg is NG.

Jacob,

Well said, Exact Issue I am having - How do rocks hit the side of your doors? It seems to be issue with the Red soul Colour, I could wrong I don't know how to post my pics, but look just like yours, Flakes all over the front of my car. and sides. I hade Mazda 3 skyactive last year, no chips or flaking - and I do a ton of driving.

Mazda is aware they have an issue - Time well tell when they step up to the plate. Thanks for sharing, as everyone on this site thinks I am a troll lol - Or crazy mazada hater.

Have good Xmas

Hi Gals/Girls,

I am fellow cx3 owner 2016 myself, have had car less then 6 months, my paint is failing, over 12 chips, paint is flaking off. If you own a cx3 you need to write to Mazda Canada Warranty - I have been to 3 Paint detailer shops, the primer is failing - The hood of your will flake off in a couple of years.

Was told they used a cheaper/ in their words more envirmently friendly paint this year on the cx3 - Mazda USA is running into very big problems on this, they are aware - Canada they have not made a decision on this topic yet.

If you think its rock chips or just, say hey only a couple of dings - You need to think again. Its going to get worse.
So please see your dealership asap, also contact Mazda Warranty. - I have owned 2 skyactive modesl3 and 6 never had this much damage to my paint.

Thanks,

I think what she is trying to say is that the clear coat is bubbling and flaking off in tons of spots.
I have the same issue with my Cx3 2020 , only 8 months old and there are about 30~50 spots of clear coarse flaking, I'm gonna contact the dealership I bought from and mazda canada
