I'm not sure the problem is the insert not sticking to the dash though. Assuming this 'part' is a complete piece, and only the top of it is vinyl, then my guess is the top layer is separating from the backing material. If that's the case, only a re-tooling at the factory to use a stronger bonding agent would solve the problem.

But that's just me guessing.

Sounds coming from above the dash bubbles...

Who (To whom) do I complain to about the lousy music on XM?

I didn't even notice until I saw this thread and looked to see if mine had that problem! I have a bubble right in the middle. Doesn't bother me too much but California heat is a pain!

Let us know how long the second replacement lasts. I think I'll wait and see how bad mine gets before I go in for another swap.

That's the station I listen to most and it appears just below my bubble as well. Ferrying fixed at dealer in two weeks along with misalignment of my dealer installed "blade" spoiler. My dealer said they had not heard of it and there were no bulletins out on it however they were happy to order the part and setup an appointment for repair. Looks like a gas bubble from the adhesive curing IMO. I don't think its from heating up and cooling down rapidly. Its been rainy and cool in the Portland area and I hate cold air blowing on me so no A/C usage here.

Well, I dropped the car off today for round two of this battle against the bubbles. Guess we will see how long this one lasts.

My bubble is growing bigger.......seems to be directly related to the sun and heat. Taking her in on Friday for that, the stick shift knob is kind of loose and to have the continuing 'vert top rub marks looked at again.

Mine had a bubble form directly center above the radio stack about a month ago. Maybe 1500 miles on the clock. I read about it before hand on here. I'm not even going to waste my time going to the dealer for a part that will fail again in short order. At least not until there is a real solution.

I have since religiously started putting a sunshade in my windshield if I'm parking for more than a half hour and my windows are tinted 20%. That should help cut down on the UV and heat damage to the interior.

Dealership tried to order this part (for the second time also) and then informed me that the part is backordered (thinking because everyone is now noticing this problem since it is summer time). Who knows when I will be able to get this fixed.....

Well, had it in on Friday, they are ordering a new dash and shifter (manual knob is a little loose) Service manager said he saw this on some of the trucks, but mine was the first Camaro he saw with this bubble.

I am sorry for any type of delay you are experiencing. If you could send me any details, I could definitely look into this and check it out. I look forward to your response.
