I have less than 500 miles on my CX 50 and already the rear bumper’s black plastic cladding is scuffed up pretty badly. It’s just from (lightly) rubbing up against some cardboard boxes that line in the back of my garage. They have never scuffed any other car I’ve parked in there before so I’m kind of scratching my head.

Has anyone else experienced this and if so, can you recommend any products to treat it without making the bumper all shiny and oily? It’s supposed to be a dull, matte finish.

thanks!

I mean that’s the purpose of the cladding on a vehicle that is made to be utilitarian/off-road. I’d take a scuff or mark on my cladding over the paint. That said, I use a waterless wash spray and a plush microfiber to clean the cladding of any scuffs. FYI, a normal microfiber pushed too aggressively can actually scuff it.

Try a pencil eraser, then mild soap and water designed for automotive use.
