Guess I'll chalk this up to it being a known issue and wait until hopefully a TSB is issued.
I think I'm just going to ignore it. No car is perfect I suppose. It's not like the heater core goes out or the a/c stops working..... oh wait..

All of you who are "waiting it out" to see if GM comes up with a cure. I wouldn't, you are much better off having it documented via an attempted repair by GM than wait and see. I'm not suggesting Lemon Law (doesn't apply to something like this), but they could say you knew about it and let it go. Just saying... good dealers won't do that but at least for the 2012's it's a partial replacement of a piece and they said it would take about an hour only. So, just get it done at your next oil change or other visit, you know?

Plus, if everyone just sits on it, Chevy will likely NOT come out with an update since they won't see all the orders for this part.

Partial replacment? I have a similar problem around the radio display the top left the leather is overhanging the radio a bit its def a flaw but i was on the fence bout letting them replace it. I did have it documented though. Anyone know how they fix it ive been told the dash has too come out and doesent that mean the windshield too.

Going to the dealer for me is a hassle. You have to wait in a line of cars about 20-30 minutes just to get into the bay to tell them what's wrong, then you're there at least an hour before they come talk to you about the issue.

I only plan to take this car to the dealer if there's an in-warranty failure that I can't avoid having them do.

I was at my dealer's today getting the first oil change (free--Mobil1) and the recall on the air bag light taken care of. Asked them about the leather on the dash coming loose and they haven't dealt with it yet, but they would check it out.

When the car was finished, my service manager said he ordered a new part for the dashboard. He said apparently the section will pop out and can be replaced. He got the part number from GM and is supposed to arrive in about a week.

Right now I'm also expecting the new part to eventually develop the same problem, but at least the dealer is aware of the situation. If/when the new panel starts to come unglued, I'll just take it back again. Hoping for the best, though, along with everyone else whose leather coming loose.

I'll gladly let everyone know how it goes with the replacement part when it arrives and is installed. I'm sure hoping this will do the trick.

But you don't care about mine?

Is it because he has an SS?

I just found this thread and have not gone past your pictures yet.
That's some song title appearing on XM.

I do, in fact, care about all Camaro customers. Have you taken your vehicle to the dealership? Please let me know if this resolves your vehicle concern.

HE HE HE. I did not even notice that. At least it was not on Pulse with Beber or Lady GaGa. My kids leave the radio in weird places when they drive the car.

I just picked my 2012 up this weekend and noticed it on mine right above the radio. It only has about 500 miles on it so far.

It appears to be related to age not necessarily mileage
They're coming this way from the factory

That makes sense considering I have only had it since Saturday and the car sat on a lot in San Diego since the end of December before being brought out to Arizona for me.

I am just going to keep an eye on it for a while and if it gets worse I will do something about getting it corrected. You can't really notice it so it is the least of my worries.

Thanks for the info!

Good luck. I should be getting a call soon to let me know my insert replacement is in. How's it look? Any problems with the removal of the old one and the new installation?
