I know that the front end of the Malibu is plastic, and that's cool with me. BUT, does anyone else notice a wave (almost dent like) or indentation on the thin strip of plastic on the front between the uppermost grill and the hood line. I can notice it on both sides in bright light when looking at it from the side.

Is this something that I should complain about or am I being to anal retentive? It just seems to me that this is a fit and finish issue that shouldn't exist. If it can't be smooth, why make it? The front end is one of the nicest things about this rig, and seeing those dimples takes away from it. I don't know, what do you think? Are you doing anything about it?

I have the red jewel tintcoat, and when I first notice it, I was going to take it back immediately, but one thing leads to another, and I'm kind of letting it slide. I'll probably drive it by the dealer, but I'm really not sure what they can do - I don't want it "repaired" since I don't trust the body shop to make it as good as the original with the "flaw."

It almost seems like it was torqued down too much and that's sucking the plastic in at some points. I guess I'll drive it by and look at a few others to see if they have it, too. For sure we know of two.

Thanks for your reply.
