So I just washed the car for the first time earlier today and I haven't really paid attention because I'm always busy at work and all but when I got home from the car wash I noticed patches of faded or washed out black paint all around the side of the vehicle. I tried wiping it with a clean microfibre towel but it seems to be an issue on the paint itself. It is really noticeable when it's in a bright area. I don't think I should be having this issue as this is a brand new car. This is really upsetting and ever since I discovered it I haven't been in straight mind and it hurts haha

Why is there no gas cap? Honda saves $3 that way? Is there an after-market gas cap that would fit?
it’s a convenience factor. capless gas tanks are meant to be easier and safer for people to use when filling the tank

I’ve used self serve car washes using their water jet “wand” and a lambs wool wash mitt and bucket. Here’s a video that warns against using the local car wash, but provides tips on keeping especially a black car like new. There’s a great tip for when drying the car where you never wipe, but use absorbent microfiber towels to pat dry a car to leave no dried water marks, clear coat scratches, or swirls marks. It works.
