    Just curious from anyone who owns a Forester that's a few years old on how the paint job seems to hold up. I bought my 2021 Forester on 12-31-20 and have probably run it through the car was 5 or 6 times. I usually do the Kwik Trip Soft touch car wash and have never had any problems. I noticed the same day after getting the car washed a fairly large surface scratch on the hood and one on the side of the car. I can only assume it was from the car wash? Also I was suckered into a ceramic coating thinking it would offer superior paint protection as I had a nano ceramic done on my 2012 Honda CRV and paint was in mint condition when I got rid of it, so even more irritated. I did talk the price down a lot but still mad. Just curious if anyone else has noticed that he paint easily scratches? Any advice/input would be appreciated.

    Best advise is stop using automated car washers. They are notorious for scratching cars due to poor upkeep on the equipment used.
