Our long-term tester, Mazda's CX-5 Grand Touring in Soul Red Crystal Metallic needed some scratches touched up. Here's how the repair went.
Torque News has been following the new 2018 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring purchased by one of our colleagues. So far, there has been nothing to report. The CX-5 has performed flawlessly with zero issues. Its first maintenance was complimentary from our local Mazda dealer (Liberty Mazda Wakefield, Mass.) and the vehicle has met or exceeded all of the owner's expectations. Unfortunately, it suffered some visible scratches when it was parked next to a vehicle whose owner was careless and opened their door into the CX-5, causing minor damage to the paint. During the first maintenance visit, we picked up the Mazda touch-up paint kit and opted to give it a try to see how well it could hide scratches in the special Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint.
