I hate the fact that GM insists on using cheap vinyl on parts that move. On the coldest day of the winter last week the shift boot and e-brake boot on my '03 Sunfire cracked right through. This is after letting the car run for 20 minutes. I've since replaced the vinyl with suede. What gets me is that I had to buy the plastic trim ring that the boot attatches to. It also broke and I couldn't get warrenty for it because I " have a heavily moddified shifter assembly that could cause unusual stress on the boot assembly" Give me a break. I just needed to vent a little.
