    Make sure you wash the car regularly. Absolutely immediately remove any bird doo or leaves. The sap kills the clear coat. Also the paint is very soft. It is very easily scratched and the clear coat is very easily destroyed by leaves. My black raven wagon clearcoat was destroyed by leaves and sap. Bird poop also trashed it.

    Oz Sr, for posting photos here I recommend using the free image hosting service Photobucket.com - it's what I've been using for years.
    You just upload your photo files to photobucket, then paste the provided image file code for each photo into your forum post.

    Don't forget to read the owners manual at least once.

    Congrats, but you are aware that you probably do not have a spare tire, only a pump & a can of sealant to inject into a tire that is punctured.


    You probably have only a small space in the trunk where you can only store the pump & sealant. No place to store a spare unless you keep it in floor of your trunk.

    I know because I own one of these and in Raven Black also.

    I have the same car. The black raven scratches ridiculously easy. Don't use a car duster brush to clean anything but pollen off the car or you'll scratch it. Remove the tags off microfiber towels or you will scratch it. Be very careful with any car polish or you'll scratch it. Don't use your finger or fingernail to carefully remove anything stuck on the paint or you will scratch it. Did I say be careful that the paint scratches easily?
