I have a 2026 Gen 2 Cruze that I purchased new. The very first time I set the parking brake, the cheap rubber pedal cover twisted and broke apart. See attached pic. Has this happened to anyone else? Very disappointing to see such a cheap piece on an otherwise great car.

This happened to mine, too. Dealer said it's not a warranty part as it's "consumable." It's just a rubber cover, can't cost more than a couple of bucks, but they couldn't be bothered.
Bumper to Bumper is just that with exception to tires and brakes (consumables).

Your dealer is a lazy (doesn't want to take the two minutes to send in a warranty claim) stroke (my opinion).
A response like that shows what a classy operation that dealer is.

The only item that is considered consumable but has a warranty is the wiper blades.....they are 12months/12000 miles.

Ha,wasn't aware it was moved back to the floor, my old Buick's and Cadillac's were this way. Had a vacuum release, when you took it our of park, that pedal would snap back up. Used the same vacuum for the heater controls, if that vacuum release leaked, would be stuck in defrost only.

Ha, wonder if that pedal cover was made in China, use to be bullet proof.

Floor for auto then back on console for manual.

Found this. I also have that problem.

My Cruze has just passed the 40K mark. I use my parking brake every time I shift to P. My pedal cover is...not surprisingly...worn out & about to fall off. It's a rather small rubber part that intrinsically gets a ton of abuse, which is why it's probably not covered by our warranty. It's also a $10 part. I'm about to pick up a new one at my dealer. While I'm at it, I'm going to buy a spare to be prepared for next time since I intend to keep this car for a long time, which I often do when I replace a cheap part - like light bulbs, that I know won't last forever.
