We have a 2011 RS V6 that is my daily driver to and from work. I am one of the bad Camaro drivers that puts about 20K a year on my car.

We also have our weekend car (actually my wife's that she lets me think I have some ownership in) which is the 2012 2SS 45th Anniversary package. That is the one having the issue.

maybe, maybe not. all leather is different. it's quite possible the leather is simply flawed, or was tanned incorrectly.

Same problem - have had 2 dashes replaced

I have the exact same problem - hot Texas sun.
I first noticed in cold weather, when I ran with top down, full heater blowing over the thin leather strip b elow the vents.

Dealer has replaced dash 2 times (I am on my third dash part, same problem keeps coming up).

I have reported to Chevy, have a case number from their customer support/product quality division. I will keep replacing dash until I get resolution. It's a REAL PAIN to sit in a dealer's office for 2 hours while they replace it, but no option!!!!

I hope they manufacture a part that fixes the problem, but your pics could have been a photo of my dash - EXACT EXACT EXACT same problem.

Report your problem to Chevy!! Maybe they will fix it.

Just curious cuz I have a 2010, but is the dash even real leather or is it just like the leather on the rear seats, which is not real.

Prob not. They likely will just glue it back down instead of replacing it.

No chance of that it'll keep lifting.

Checking in. Mine has the same problem since I drove it off the lot. I may get it replaced when they figure out a better solution for it.

Can you press on the area and feel a loose space between it and the dashboard? Mine sort of looks like that in a small area, but when I press on it, there is no give at all. It seems attached to the surface below it.

Also, if you look at it from the side, can you see the raised spots from that angle? Mine looks pretty flat from the side, so I'm not sure if I have this problem (yet) or not.

I'm always paranoid about dash damage from sunlight. That's why the first thing I do is get the windows tinted dark, and I always put up a windshield shade when parked in the sun.

@ 900 miles as of this morning, dash is perfect. I'll keep a sharp eye on it.

Landau top adhesive should hold it down permanently if it is seperating from the plastic dash, but that isn't exactly easy to obtain.

Mine looks fine and it's the same as the pics since I drove it off the lot. It looks like leather stretched over plastic, which looks much better than plastic... If an edge lifted or something then I'd care.

EDIT: No "give" to it.

Not sure if it's real....it looks and feels like leather to me. It's nice upgrade from the 10-11 dash, but not if it's going to start falling apart. No problems on mine yet, but I'll be keeping an eye on it.
