2013 Sportage (wife's)
My wife's Sportage is a '13, purchased in August (3,200 miles), and 2 months ago it already started showing signs of UV damage and drying out. Most of the lower plastic molding, as well as the rubber gaskets around the windows have gradually become more and more faded. I've been detailing cars on the side for 12 years, and I've never seen this happen on a car anywhere near this young. Generally this kind of damage sets in at 10+ years, NOT 3-4 months. I should also note that none of the molding was ever waxed or treated with anything. Has anyone else experienced something similar?
