No, those aren’t scratches. They’re little, tiny spiderwebs. My car is covered in them, as is every other car in the employee parking lot at work. I don’t know what kind they are, but every year around this time, they float around the parking lot and leave their webs everywhere. I saw two of them on the car the day before yesterday. They apparently like the hot weather, too, because that’s when they’re most prominent.

Either way, my car is a sauna each day because I can’t leave the windows cracked now. I’d rather not have spiderwebs IN the car.

On a side note, the second generation (2009-2012) Mazda6 was recalled because of spiders building webs in the fuel filler necks. But these spiders at work aren’t picky and they cover every car.
