I finally got around to hand washing my Caliber for the first time since September which is when I purchased it. I usually take it to the local touch free automatic carwash. Anyway, I was getting around to the front of the car when my step dad walked by and did a double take of the front of the Caliber and brings it to my attention that the chrome on the grille is starting to peel. Right away it pissed me off so bad that I didn't even want to wash it anymore, but I did anyway. Is anyone else having a problem with this and will this be replaced under warranty? I guess I'll find out when I take it in to have the 2nd allignment done since I purchased it.

Just buy a new grill if the dealer wont replace it. You can grab a perfect grill on ebay for around $25

Just dropped the car off for service this morning and they will be replacing the grille under warranty. Its gonna take a few days cause they have to order it in, but thats no problem since I very seldomly drive the car anyway. If this happens again, I will have buy a cheap one off ebay and have it painted to match.

If it was chrome peeling off then there would be nothing to paint. The chrome section of the grill is removable... everything else is part of the bumper skin. They seem to come in waves on ebay, but you may even find a monochrome one in your color and not need to paint.
