Wow... that's terrible. Kia would never let that happen on one of their cheap $25k cars.Some of the pics of the quality paint job.
Do you mean the exhaust finishers on the rear bumper (which are not even connected to the exhaust outlet)? First off, All Sports have them in black, has nothing to do with Onyx. Strange that the paint there is peeling but it should be a super easy swap for your dealer. That part is just for looks, it is not part of the exhaust system.i have the black onyx package. The mufflers are painted black and the inside of them are already peeling.
I am guessing there is something wrong with the prep or materials for the front and rear bumper covers. The paint issues seem to only be on these plastic parts.It is baffling that they are having issue with this.... working out the bugs on a new design or new tech is understandable, but painting a car? Come on.....
I believe 21 orders are done and closed. 22 orders dont open till the 27th. So I am not sure what your dealer did, but I don't think they could have actually placed an order.When did you order? I placed an order last week…haven’t heard anything yet.
I have also received quite a few calls from dealers I was trying to buy from back in April/May... seems they are finally getting in some stock units, so maybe (just maybe) we will see things start to return to normal a bit.I’ve had three dealers contact me in the last 24 hours about stock items coming in next week. None of them are exactly what I’m looking for but maybe things are starting to open up at the moment?
Not the best photo, but that is the paint peeling up from the top edge of the front bumper cover. (you are looking at the bottom of the raised paint.) (I should not that I have Paint protection film on there... so the line horizontal lines you see are just the edge of that. I am sure i will have to have the bumper recovered when this is all over.)You guys have any pictures?
Where do you live? do you park outside on sunny days.... any change you park in the driveway of a newer-ish home (built in the last 15 years.) As I mentioned on another thread.... it is very common for plastic parts on cars to be melted by the sun reflecting off of new low-e windows on a home (usually from the second story.) The glass in some Low-e windows is slightly concave (a defect I believe) and this makes things even worth. The sun will move across the sky and basically become a laser beam slowly moving across your driveway melting anything that gets in its way. This is real... it happens. Was your car outside in the sun in the 48 hours after you picked it up from the new trim being installed? at work, at home, etc.So it’s been interesting. They brought it back on Monday, only doing part of the repair. The trim they did replace already started bubbling after 48 hours. They still have zero idea what the cause is. View attachment 603851
VERY well known issue. You need all your lifters replaced... they are defective.I just scheduled an appointment to get my bumper repainted next week.
Unfortunately that isn’t going to happen because I was driving down the highway and my engine started knocking. I am over an hour from home sitting at a Cadillac dealer.
A lifter in cylinder one has to be replaced. Apparently this is an issue with the new Escalade as well as I have read in another forum.
Ah yes... the very dumb GM rule that over 8000 miles they only replace one bank of bad lifters. :-SI tried. They said they won’t let them replace them all.
