Hi frds, I first noticed the scratch when I finished an auto car wash and my forester was 5 months old. Then now it’s 1 yr old, the unknown scratches just increased in both size and numbers with time. It’s not deep but really want to know why. My first guessing was because of the car wash machine? Or scratched by little stones on road? Can anyone help explain with this? Thanks heaps.

Scratches from stones are generally horizontal. Was it a rotating brush carwash, or no contact?

I would say to go with your gut on this one.
ACW"s aren't the most gentle of mechanisms and can be corrupted easily by grit and grime from other vehicles.
Break out some cleaner wax ,claybar. .... and your elbow grease( it's next to those microfiber cloths in your closet).
