2016 Civic Coupe EX-T
So, I was a humongous idiot. Took my beloved Civic EX-T coupe for a car wash and was using the self-use vacuum to clean the inside. Stupidly, I decided to run the vacuum over the touch screen without checking to see if the nozzle was rubberized.

Later, when the sunlight hit my touchscreen, I was shocked to discover that the vacuum had left multiple long scratches all across the screen. They're very noticeable even without direct sunlight :( :( :(

Touch screen function hasn't been impacted yet, but damn, it looks bad.

I've scheduled an appointment with my dealership to see what they can do to fix it. I have a strong suspicion that they're going to recommend a screen replacement.

Does anyone have any idea how much that would cost me? :(

If it's going to be cost prohibitive, you could try installing a screen protector to see if these scratches are still noticeable. I believe someone on here posted how much the screen cost and it wasn't cheap. Maybe you get lucky and they fudge it a bit to cover it under warranty? That would be a nice customer service gesture.
