Trim installed poorly on driver's door and B-pillar - anyone else seen this?

    I close my door, the interior trim panel pops off, leaving about a 3/16 inch gap between where it is and where it's supposed to be. I can pop it back into place, but at the price, that's sorta not the point.

    And, of course, having found one flaw, I get hyper-sensitive about others; I think the trim on the driver's side B-pillar's loose, too.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    That happened to me. Had it in the service center for other stuff and when I brought that up, they said they would replace the clips that hold it all together. Haven't gotten the car back yet so we'll see.

    This was a problem I had at delivery; there are about 10 clips inside holding the door panel to the door. I noticed it after I left because when I closed the door,the panel sort of rebounded back after the impact of the door closing. The service center said their policy is to replace them all, any time they remove a door panel. It should not be a quick service visit for you to get that fixed.
