Well just picked it up and everything looks perfect. But I feel it is a matter of time before it happens again. We will see though.

true. but i think that it will be a reoccuring problem since the replacement pieces are the same as the pieces that came already installed in the car. Guess i better get the ready.

I just came back from the dealer earlier today and had mine replaced also. The new one looks great, seemed to be an easy install. Hope it's the only one I'll need!

Has anyone looked at the defective piece once it has been removed from the car? Curious to see what the back side of the piece looks like where the bubbling is.

Not much to see, the top cover lifts away from the back so the back of the back looked perfectly fine.

NOTE: I did feel a loose area on the new piece (if you rub your finger back and forth across you can hear the sticky glue sound). I'm guessing it's going to happen again... sigh.

Every car has these quality issues in their DNA. I'm afraid this could be one of them for 12-up 5th gens. Hopefully they'll find a fix.

Anyone remember the 2nd gen problems (besides 400 + squeaks and rattles) of the inner door pulls? I'm not saying to accept it, but there always seems to be that one common PITA issue with Camaros.

All cars do.
Though different manufacturers handle it differently.
So far Volvo has been the best for me, even after change of ownership.
GM not so much unfortunately.

Agreed.

The problems seem to be more frustrating for owners of specialty cars like Camaro and Corvette than for Cruze and Equinox. I think our expectations are set higher.

It's certainly not too much to expect a convertible that doesn't leak or fall apart. But that's another thread.

I started reading this thread awhile ago and it's sad to say that my dash is now bubbling :( I recived my car in September of 11 and it has 8,900 miles on it. I hope the dealer doesn't give me lip about this!

Thanks I'll be headed in next week to see about it. I just don't want them to give me a headache because my car looks like crap ( it was vandalized on the exterior ). I'll keep you all posted on my experience.

Got mine back today with the new leather. I was surprised, but they replaced the whole lower assembly for the dash.

Any news yet if they found a solid fix for this? I was in my car last night cleaning the interior and noticed this, same as the pictures you guys shared. I have a 2012 and love the leather, just hate the bubbles..... Come on chevy... Also I live in Sunny Florida :/

Wow, I am not the only one w/ the door sills peeling as well as the leather bubbling on their 2012's?

Quick question while I am at it, does anyone notice that their rear-view mirror is always drooping down after a few hours? I have to adjust mine almost every day I get in the car!!!
