2019 EX chrome trim?

Just bought a 2019 EX. It is missing the chrome trim over the drive door. Has chrome on all other doors, and the other section of the driver door, just not the top. Is this something I can have added? Anyone have an idea of pricing? Looks pretty odd without it.

If this is a brand new car, why didn't it come up during the delivery inspection?

Because I think to say there was a delivery inspection would be an overstatement. It was 45 minutes after they closed and I think were just anxious to go, and I take part responsibility for not noticing but we had been there for 3 hours and my head was swimming. So, back to the question, this is something that can be fixed one way or another, right?

oh...that's something that would be covered under warranty? Even though it's cosmetic?

The dealer should make it right, especially considering delivery took place so late, and it was missed. when you pay a new vehicle price, you deserve a complete vehicle.

I agree. I'll be calling them first Monday morning. I just wanted to make sure it's not something I have to live with for the next however many years and was fixable one way or another.

Its part of the car, If it didn't come with a steering wheel what would you do?

that's a good point. I will for sure be calling the dealership in the morning to have it addressed.

All of those things are included in the warranty coverage which is bumper to bumper?
