    I wouldn't base Chevrolet's quality on a piece of plastic that can be kicked and accidentally break.

    jeepsrt, that may be true, but it's part of the overall package. The consumer doesn't care what part was designed by whom and came from what supplier. Steering wheel shroud pops off - it's GM's fault. Battery dies prematurely - it's GM's fault. Car delivers worse than expected mpg - it's GM's fault.

Some of us know that there are more details behind every failure, but for the majority of people it's just one more blemish on GM's quality reputation.

    The fact that it was on display at a car show tells me everything I need to know. It was either broken or weakened there. I've seen horrors at car shows, even to cars not open for the public to sit in.

    I like to get to a car show on the first day if possible before the riff raff has stolen the radio knobs/seat controls/cigarette lighters/shift knobs etc.....

    That piece clips in. Did someone take it or forcefully try and rip it off? The comments above about being a display car makes sense.
