Mine is doing that also. In fact, I can see why it came apart. The moulding is hard to push back to the door. Guess over time, it warps then pulls apart and has to be replaced. I just hate the idea of having to rip all of those off. Both front door pieces are coming off in the lower corner, and one back door is just barely separated.

Bad enough, my Pontiac place doesn't have it'* own body shop! If you get yours repaired, let me/us know what all they did.

I know. I was thinking that the GXP doesn't have the cladding on it, so maybe the SLE/SSEi would look similar too if it didn't have it. Or is the door bad looking under the cladding.
