My interior handles are peeling. Anyone seen any aftermarket handles? Or should I just peel the rest of an paint it? I'm just not sure about the paint because none of my interior is painted, and the door handle gets used so much.

try bringing it to chevy and have them paint it. There is supposed to be a 7 year 70k mile paint warranty.

THey are pretty cheap to buy a new handle.. like 15 bucks.. But personally I would take it apart and get the rest off with some steel wool then repaint them a different color

For $15, maybe I'll try painting them, and if I don't like it, it won't cost much to fix.
I'm going to have to head to the dealer. The paint on my bumper is chipping and flaking off.

I finally made it in to check on the paint warranty, only because my car is now going into this engine power reduced mode, but that's a whole other topic. They said the warranty is a corrosion warranty, that really only covers damage if it's a rust hole all the way through the sheet metal. So non of the plastic parts are covered.
I guess I'll be looking for an after market SS type bumper soon.
