Exclamation My 2014 Mazda 3 is MELTING

Hello everyone. I joined this forum in hope to find others who may have, unfortunately, experienced this same issue. My Mazda is MELTING! Both side mirrors, front bumper, and plastic between hood and bumper.

No, I don't park it near a fire or a jet engine or heat vent. I park it in my driveway and in a parking lot at work. Yes, I drive it outside in the daytime, when the Sun is out, as well as at night LOL. There isn't covered parking at work but now I keep it in the garage at all times when at home. Oh, and I live in Maryland, not the middle of the desert.

I have contacted Mazda corporate and they have been less than helpful. Issue is not covered under extended warranty (obviously). Has anyone out there been successful in getting this addressed and fixed through Mazda? Know of any class action suits? Any and all advice is welcome. Enjoy the photos below....if you have trouble spotting the damage, I tried to describe it in the tags below the photo. Thanks guys!

Welcome aboard.

Couple of questions:
Have you owned the car since new?
Has the car had any front end body work done?

Wow, how can this happen. It's better Mazda to first address these types of issues rather than predicting about its next-gen cars. Since when did you own this car?
