Hi all,

We just got our 2009 AWD Flex Limited (Light Ice Blue) the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. After getting out of the car in a parking lot yesterday while running errands, I noticed that the driver's side chrome foglight surround was completely gone. This quite obviously puzzled me (and made me mad :angry22: ). Backtracking a bit, we were able to find it - it had strangely fallen off at the entrance to the parking lot (where there were no bumps or anything, just where you turn in) and it had not been run over. It did however have many little scratches on it, so I'm gonna go request a new one at our dealer.

Anyways, I was wondering if this had happened to anybody else, or if it was (as I suspect) just a matter of a factory worker not pushing it in/on all the way?

Thats a bit concerning. Is it just a pressure fit, or does it bolt on?

It just snaps on really. Its tough to explain, but there's nothing physically attaching it like bolts or screws.

I've had a (black) 2010 Flex SE and have been thouroghly impressed with it's build quality.
Nothing popping/falling off . It's been perfect!
I'd like to hear what's falling off.... Where's his response?
