I have a 2010 mazdaspeed 3. at only 5 years old the clear coat is already peeling horribly on the hood and now starting on the fenders and trim going along the windshield. I have the velocity red paint and cannot believe the clear coat is peeling this badly within only 5 years. Vehicle is kept under normal conditions.

Dashboard is melting, the glare from it makes it hard to see traffic up ahead and is very distracting at times. Dealership said it is a comon problem with Mazda vehicles, using visors to cover the windshield does not stop the melting. Inside of the windshield is extremely streaky due to the dash melting and oils leaving residue on the windshield.

Dashboard is melting and turning into a sticky gooey mess that very glossy and creating a large amount of reflective glare. The reflective glare off the dashboard onto the windshield is so bright that it makes it difficult to see out of the windshield on bright or sunny days.

My dashboard has been melting now for the past 2 years. It is getting worse. I live in Florida. This is an obvious defect from Mazda and they refuse to replace. The melting dashboard causes extreme glare on sunny days. Enough to affect visibility out the front windshield. Since it is literally cooking I am concerned that there are health hazards and toxins associated with it melting. This situation is hazardous and a recall needs to be enforced asap.
