It appears that the new car prep people forgot to peel the plastic protective covering off of the chrome strips on the door panels. over time it is peeling and unsightly. How and where do you get this fixed. I have had the car since new!
All of the buttons that you touch in the car are peeling. Even the floor panels are peeling and behind the seat
My kick panels on both sides as well as the panels under the B and C pillars and along the door sills are peeling badly.
peeling door sills, kick panel and buttons on the arm rest, leaking steering rack, leakinf valve covers and front timing cover, bass speaker cracking sometimes dont come on, safety belt and airbag lamps on dash stays iluminated, Jeessss, and the list goes on and on nothing but a headache! but a fun car to drive, luckily i have an other vehicle to drive
