I had my 2014 SEL for 3 days when I noticed a serious deformation of the drivers side D pillar. It is not a crack. It actually looks melted like it was heated up and bubbled. Does anyone know if there are any wires behind this piece that could overheat and cause this? The dealer looked at it and said they scoped it and found nothing back there at all. I have read many examples of cracked pillars so I was curious if anyone knows what it looks like under this piece. A pic would be helpful. I am facing a $300 repair for a $60 part with the warning that they may break the trim piece and window upon removal driving the cost to near $800. Any feedback is helpful.

Why are you paying for this? This should be under warranty.

Agree completely. take the vehicle back to the dealer and they should handle your concerns at no cost to you. Do not pay anything.
