Quality Issues

I have some quality issues. Not serious just the ones that annoy you.

The rear cargo lift has access covers for the brake ights that fall off regularly (once a week). The fuel door does not always release and had to go to the trunk and release it via the cord. Also the body cover on the fuel door has fallen off once when refueling. The assembly is a cheap plastic piece that holds the body trim.

Anyone having similar issues??

Must have gotten a "Monday" car! Too bad, hope the dealer can sort these things out for you.

Nothing like this on mine. It seems to be solid everywhere.

Our rear access covers fall out too if the tailgate is slammed shut too hard. Nothing I'm loosing sleep over or even mentioning to the dealer. I'll probably put a piece of electrical tape on the tabs to make them a bit tighter. Concerning the fuel door it is sometimes hard to open and takes a few presses. Haven't had to resort to using the release in the cargo area.
