Please let us know how your trip to your dealership goes and if they were able to take care of this concern for you.

Mine is starting to do it also. Car is kept in car port and has a car cover on it. Also is not a daily driver so it only gets to see the sun on fun trips. Also have steering wheel slightly shake when I hit the brakes at first??? Please advise on what I should do Brandon?

Dealer looked at mine then checked on two they had in stock. Claimed nothing wrong and will not do anything. At least I have it on record so that when GM finds a fix I will take it to them again.

Well I have had mine replaced multiple times so my service manager gave me GMs customer service number and they told me to call and complain.

Thanks... I am going to have to go back in to get the radio face replaced from a scratch they put in while replacing the last one.... new one already has a bubble. I will talk to the service manager about how to esculate the problem to Chevy... probably won't mess with replacing it again until this gets figured out... but I will make sure its documented... lol

Now, this could just be me being paranoid due to the fact that I had sooooo many issues on my vert. Does this look normal or does it appear that there is some bubbling going on?

That, I would think, is normal and could be just small variations in the surface there where it was stitched. The bubbling we're talking about generally occurs between the central air vent and the top of the radio. The surface vinyl in that area is becoming delaminated from the backing material beneath it and aside from the visual, you can also press on the area(s) with your finger and release and it will make a sticky sound.

This is likely not due to heat but the design of the piece involving compound curves and weak adhesive. There's really no telling if GM is actually looking into this but my bet is if they fix it at all, they will do so quietly through introduction of a new part in the production stream. That way, they only have to fix previously produced cars if the customer actually bothers to complain about it. But that's just me guessing.

I checked my dash, but it doesn't have three little arrows.
Mine has only two.

Mine has had bubbles since we brought it home on Labor Day. Waiting to see what the "fix" is... would think that they would simply replace the insert and not the whole dash.
