My gear shifter has developed a horizontal crack along the front. I noticed what I thought was a surface scratch when I picked the car up from the dealer 6 months ago but was eager to get the car and didn't want the distraction of making a fuss over it. Overtime the "scratch" got worse and it eventually became obvious that it was more than just a surface flaw.
Has anyone else seen this?
I got my car in late December so it went through some cold initial weather on the way to sunny California but otherwise it has been living in 45+ temperatures and it is only very recently that it has gotten over 80. I'm careful about keeping it in the shade during the day so I this clearly isn't about extreme prolonged temperatures.
I'm going to try getting it replaced by the dealer under warranty in the next few weeks.
