Question Soul Red Paint Chips

[B]I've had my Mazda 6 for approximately for 2 months and I've had to bring it in with chip and scratch issues. I washed my car ever so gently yesterday only to find more chips in the paint. The car has 2,000 miles on it so nothing extreme about how it's driven. I live in Central Florida so I do not drive dirt roads. They've taken care of the issues when I bring the car in but I worry when do they stop and say ok you have enough mileage we can't help anymore.
My fiance has a 2017 cx5 we has the same issue with her car but hers is a lease and they say she will get some sort of allowance when she returns it. I have to pay for this car for 72 months. This must be an issue with other owners if they're paying attention. How can I get this resolved before they won't service this issue anymore?
As beautiful as this color it's not worth the headache for many years to come.

Personally I don't know why they're servicing it now.

Paint doesn't just chip because you looked at it wrong. Generally it's from following to close at highway speeds and getting dinged from the very small dirt and rocks flipped up by the car in front of you.

Happens to every single car on the highway. Have a gravel truck go over a very small bump on the road and watch all the tiny rocks come bouncing down in front on you. Good reason that clear bras are so popular.

Happens to all modern cars thanks to EPA mandated paint that is softer and thinner than it used to be in the past. Happens more to mazdas than others because mazdas have some of the thinnest paint i have come across. Your only option is to get the front 1/3rd of the car wrapped in clear bra.

I've read this thing, bra, for a couple of times and so I decided to search Google for it.

As I've expected, pictures I've seen are girly things. Some are transparent that I got tempted to buy imagining my wife wearing it.

A couple of pages and I finally found that this clear bra is just a plastic that is installed on cars.

10000 km on mine and the hood is a mess. Soul red. Even water scratches this freakin car!!! Going to see the dealer in a few weeks. Not normal. Never had a situation with rock chips before on any car, including a previous Mazda.

Has anyone tried a good paint sealant? I plan on touching up mine in a few weeks (former rental, so lots of scratches) and was hoping to apply a good seal afterwards.
