We just purchased a 2017 Honda accord sport.

Around the inside of the doors on our white 2017 accord, the seam sealer they use (like caulk) when the finish the car, before the paint, is very dirty.
Mold or mildew has stuck to that caulk like material and we cannot clean it/
Its the worst at the bottom of the door under the extra rubber weatherstripping, where it hasnt been cleaned in the past.

Any suggestions, does anyone else have the same problem
Do you know if Honda will fix this under any warr. coverage?

What? There is no mold or mildew there. I don’t see what you see, but I do see where it appears someone scrubbed paint off of the area.

Here are some better pics, the dealer attempted to clean it and removed some paint when trying to clean it but there is still much more, it appears to be on the caulk like seam sealer material.

The car was not garaged and left out in the elements constantly so the moisture was always there to cause that mold/mildew. Very hard to remove... hope they maintained the car otherwise. Used cars = crapshoot
