anyone annoyed about that front rubber skirt/lip always hitting the curb, hump, parking stopper, up/down ramps? i know its not a big deal because its flexible-- but what is the purpose of that anyway? from all this friction someday it might just come off.
As stated, it is a feature for aerodynamics. My 98 Eldorado ETC has one and it scrapes on curbs and parking curbs. You have to be aware and stop short of hitting it in the ETC.
I have not had as much of a problem with the VOLT but I may already be programed to watch out for curbs and parking stops because of prior exp with the ETC.
There was an article that commented about this. It appearantly is made of layered fiberglas and because of continual scraping, will delaminate the layers and will begin to make noise from air passing by, vibrating the layers. According to the article, GM will replace this front aerodynamic feature with a shorter one at the customers req, the article said no charge but I am not sure if that is still in effect.
