I've got a 2021 GV80 Prestige in Adriatic Blue with a Dune interior. The inside door panel, lower portion, are dark blue. For some reason, they keep getting scuffed and I can't get the scuffs out. Doesn't look like dirt, and it's not ripping the material, just lighter colored scuff marks.

I tried to recreate a small one with my fingernail, and that didn't make a mark at all, so not sure what's doing it. Regardless, it shouldn't be damaging the material like that.

Anyone else have this issue? Maybe it's an issue with the blue dye?

Cheers,
Corey

I make deliveries as part of our business and park in lots frequently.
I usually open the door slightly so it doesn't swing out and hit the car next to me. Then use my foot to push it all the way open while I hold it with my hand to control it.
Any vehicle I drive.
I'm 5'9" and in the 80, my foot hits the door panel if i use my foot normally.
If the seat is raised for someone shorter and they use their foot, it will be on the door panel.
I have to turn a bit and reach extra far to get the metal part below it. Shoe scuffs happen a lot in cars.

Have you cleaned it with anything that might have left streaks?

Sounds like a mark from a rubber souled shoe.....
I've used leather cleaner and a specific "automotive interior cleaner" from Adams and that usually helps...
The problem is not to apply too much pressure or rub too much - especially with a microfiber cloth or else you risk basically sanding down the natural patina of the material...

Try Magic Eraser with only light pressure.

Not a matter of whether or not shoe scuffs happen a lot in cars, of course they do. But this particular material seems to be prone to scuffing easier than other materials. I've had a lot of high end cars in my life, and this is the worst I've ever seen.

It could be, but it almost looks scratched. I'll try the leather cleaner I have but i doubt it'll work. The other detail cleaners I have didn't do a thing.
