Window trim on driver's front door snapped - poor design. Front driver's fender was not aligned properly at delivery - did not make an issue of it, but door-to-fender gap was small. Eventually, fender moved-in to rub paint. Dealer refuses to repair and blames owner for fault (including future rust from scraping)
