Interior is starting to...fall apart?

So I noticed this the other day and starting to wonder what I can do to fix it. I didn't notice the issues until after I got my tint job done the other day, however I don't know why they would have had to remove this to apply it since its not like I got the windshield done. There's a little plastic snap to put it back in place, but it pops back out after a few minutes.

Any idea how I could get this fixed? I've never bought a new car before so I was wondering-if I took this back to the dealer to have it looked at, would I be laughed off the lot?

There have been a few posts about this problem already. Take it back to your dealer, they will make it right.

Demand that the dealer fix it immediately. It shouldn't take too long to figure out where it needs to be better attached.

This was an issue long before production began in March. I am surprised it was not taken care of properly.

I was actually just going to post this. My car is a week and a half old and the exact same thing happened to mine except it was the left side A pillar. I guess I'll be headed back to the dealership too.

Excellent. Is there a recall or is it every owner having to have this happen down the road and taking it in themselves?

Just a little Crazy Glue on the notch and it stays in place. That's what I did. I'll bet there are hundreds like this.

Post if this has happened to you!

I had a customer of mine I saw sitting in service with this issue, before the service writer got a chance to write him in, I pressed it back into place myself, just put a little umph behind it and felt it click into place.

Yes, my experience is it does click back, but then pops back out sometime later. After about two weeks of this I went with the glue!

If you try and shoo customer concerns away without writing them up and reporting them, that is not going to help GM get better? How will they know? I am particularly troubled by the post suggesting this was a known defect. (Admittedly, I should have insisted that the dealer fix it, but I get tired taking my GM's in for fixes that shouldn't be required).

I wasn't sure if I should start a separate thread on this concern. I just picked up my Camaro today and love it so far. The one problem I've noticed is with the 'panel' _around_ the 4-gagues cluster, launch control, and cigarette power plug.

So I'm still using my portable GPS until I can get comfortable with On* and it's voice interface... When I went to pull out the power adapter, the cigarette lighter and the gray case/panel which frames the launch control, cig lighter, and 4 gagues almost separated from the rest of the center console. I pushed it back down fine, but noticed that that hole piece of plastic seems very flimsy. I was able to push on it and it would give about 1/8th of an inch on any flat surface. My (bad) impression is two-fold:

1) the plastic for this portion of the center arm rest/console feels very flimsy
2) that it actuall almost separated from the rest f the console.

I fully intend to take it to a dealership to have it looked at, unfortunately I HAVE to drive all day tomorrow to get back to work. So it's something that'll have to wait. Until then I'll try not to un-plug stuff from that cig lighter.

...Some constructive feedback for Chevy is all I'm saying...

Passengers Side Post

Mine has the same issue with the post on the passengers side. Dealership has ordered the new piece, but they have no idea when it will arrive. Nice. Pretty much par for course on a 1st year car with this totally new design. Looks like Crazy Glue for now.

the part that goes around the gauges is a separate piece from the console... I have taken it off before... you just give it a tug and it comes off... give it a push and pops back on

My point is it comes off too easy. When I went to unplug something in the cigarette lighter power-plug, the hole piece nearly came off.
