Default bleeding seals

Not sure if I've even used the correct description and if I'm in the correct room for this story, but here it is anyway. I have a new 2017 Honda Civic Coupe LX and have noticed that whenever there is any kind of moisture e.g., car wash (brush-less), rain or snow there is a "black" ooze from my rear view mirrors, door *****. Can anyone tell me what is causing this? I will attach some pics of just what I'm talking about and thank you all for your help! Besides who wants to be driving a nice looking car with black streaks...not me.

Not sure what a door **** is, the inside handle?
Could the stuff on the mirror just be condensation?
Does it go away?
Check the sunroof drains, windscreen seal.

It's more than likely caused by a product the dealer or last owner used on the trim. Just keep washing and it will go away. I have an 05 Civic and daughter has a '12 and neither of them have this problem. Keep washing. Good luck.

Duane, thank you for your input. To eliminate the frustration I get from seeing those darn streaks, I've purchased a shammy and use it when I wash my car and that seems to help. Next time I'll check to see if there are any streaks after a rain/snow shower. Again, I appreciate your reply.
