: the contact stated the molding around all 4 doors comes unglued and hangs down during hot weather. The molding hardens and chips when the weather gets cold. Sometimes, the contact sustains minor injuries such as scratches on the head from the unglued molding when entering the vehicle. The contact had the molding replaced once in 2004. The problem reoccurred in 2005. The manufacturer was contacted but offered no resolution. Updated 10/31/2006 - the consuemr has gotten small cuts when brushing against the hard molding.
