From Day 1 the roof rack on our 2017 Bolt EV never had quite the same lustre that the rest of the car's paint had. I didn't give it enough attention (as in scream bloody murder to the local dealership), and that inattention has bit us in the behind. If those roof rack components were a snake, I could chalk it up to the reptile simply shedding its outer skin so it could continue to grow. But being the inanimate object that it is, it has become a blight on an otherwise flawless automotive experience.

The chances of either the local dealer or GM corporate standing behind their shoddy paint job approach nil. But at least the UAW goons who strong-armed the Big 3 in Detroit into paying through the nose for the privilege of having workers show up for work on a somewhat regular basis can smile contentedly while doing nothing to promote professionalism in the workplace.

Moral of the story: If something doesn't seem quite right, squawk loudly to the dealer that just took tens of thousands of dollars of your hard earned money.
