The weather here is brutal. My Sebring in FL had entire patches of paint missing. I lived 10 minores from the beach....keeping something in its original condition and color is one thing; having to "fix" a manufacturers' design flaw is something else.
Mine did this too. All I did was put Mothers Back to black Exterior trim care on the mirrors plastic, the corner piece in front of the mirror, air filter box, fuse box door(In engine bay), valve cover plastic lid, the airbox hose, and **** even the fender liners lol. It works really well. Its purpose is to turn faded black plastic to like new condition.....and does it work well =].Did this happen to your Cruze also? Should I tell the dealer?
This started after the second week probably.
Am I supposed to be treating this with something? Never had a car do that. Both are the same.
Yup Mothers still makes it =]. Just bought two bottles the other day. They improved the formula from what I heard from my buddy who works at mothers=]. Any autoparts store will have it available. Personally, this is my go to item for anything that's restoration to plastic and that is black =]Mothers used to make a product called "Back to Black". It was for the plastics and other synthetic trims on our vehicles. I'm not sure if they still make it or not, but it might help.
Chemicalguys also makes several products for this...a couple I use is their V.R.P. (for Vinyl, Rubber, Plastic) treatment, and also what they call G6 Hypercoat for trim as well...The G6 Hypercoat works really good on the rubber seals and such.
Hope this helps.
Mine did that around the quarter glass too and my dealership replaced both under warranty.Ive noticed my rubber on my rear doors are cracking. It seems to only be from top rear seam in rubber to bottom of rear glass. Especially cracked at top rear corner. Anyone else having this happen?
