Has anybody else here Problems with the Paint? I just washed the Car and noticed that I have two Problem Areas where the Paint is getting lighter.
One Area is next to the Filler Cap the Size of a Quarter and the other Area is in the lower left on the Hatch.

I got the same light Spots on it and 5 Finger prints like somebody closed the Hatch while the Paint was still wet and the Clear Coat sealed it in. :(:|

Off to the Dealer on Saturday to see whats going on. I will keep you posted.

Just based on what I've seen on the youtube factory tours, if they find an imperfection in the paint, they will mark it and then go back and buff it out. Sometimes that leads to a re-spray (which I'm sure gums up the works). It kind of sounds like your light spots may be places where they buffed a bit much and didn't re-spray. Just guessing, but yeah, that is a dealer trip for sure.
