    Same problem here on an '05. The most of the pealing is towards the top.

    yup
    dads 05 is the same way
    it goes in for replacement as well as the hood strut, shifter lights, a.c control buttons, and key fob issue

    Just had mine replaced today. Cracked down the middle. Took about an hour to replace. Certified

    Smile Re: Start Button Peeling?

    Went to buy the car at the dealer and that was the 1st thing I saw! They said they would fix it under warranty and they did. But you think they would have fixed it before it hit the lot! I guess that 300 point check list needs to be updated to 301,ha. Love the car in Red, Tint and the wheels make it really stand out. I had a new Chrysler 300 with the Hemi it was nice but the service was unbearable. It had Navigation that did not work in motion until someone came up with a fix. It was all in the software, burned a new disk and away the problem went. Nothing compares to that Caddy Service!!

    Just point it out to your advisor and they should take care of it.

    Is this the same thing as the preset buttons on my stereo? They are all peeling very badly. Is there anyway that these can be fixed?! Please, any info will be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Start Button Peeling?

    Although it is peeling, I wouldn't really consider them to be the same.
    The buttons can be replaced, it takes a little work and most dealers just replace the entire radio.
    I replace just the affected buttons. Saves time and money.

    Re: Start Button Peeling?

    I noticed the light visible on mine down the center as well. I took my car in for the pinion seal recall yesterday so I asked them to take a look at that as well. When I went back to pick it up, they said it was cosmetic and not a functional problem and that it is not normally covered, but they replaced it for me anyway. It is a bit different than the old one. Anybody ever heard of that one? I know many dealers were replacing complete radios in the first generation CTS because of peeling buttons....

    Re: Start Button Peeling?

    After they see about 5 more they will realize that it is not uncommon and the reason why the replacement button looks different.
    They might be able to brush off the peeling finish, but when it cracks in the middle and the white light shines in your face... well...

    Re: Start Button Peeling?

    I thought the first one was an oddity, the second a coincidence... after seeing about a dozen or so I just replace them.
    Not many people complain about it actually. It isn't a big deal to most folks until they crack.

    Re: Start Button Peeling?

    I noticed that my start button was showing some signs of wear and was peeling. Yesterday the dealer replaced mines under warranty with no questions ask.

    Re: Start Button Peeling?

    I can't believe that dealers have never seen this issue because it has been going on since 2002-2003....GMC, Chev, Cadillac all of them....nav buttons, radio buttons, steering wheel controls they are all made out of the same stuff and they have been issues for 5-6 years now.
