2 issues and the pictures may not do them Justice.
#1 DRIVER door arm rest material getting "wavy" already after only 7000 miles (very hard to see You more have to actually feel this to understand the complaint). Feels different than passenger side that doesn't get much use.
#2 . drivers side back hatch glass rubber trim sagging (just at the edge of the glass very subtle for now). Just a little but just enough to bother me and eventually have dealership fix it eventually. I would appreciate in advance if anyone has had these problems and if the dealership was able to fix You up?

Could you zoom out on the hatch glass pic? I'm curious if mine has the same problem. My Bolt lives outside 24/7.

My Bolt isn't garaged. I live in sunny California, but daytime highs during the summer are typically in the high 80s to low 90s. I have not had these issues.

How old is your Bolt? These minor conditions may be a result of age, not miles. The separation of the rubber trim may be caused by an automated car wash. Never use automated car washes: always hand wash your vehicle. Yeah, it's more work, but it's worth it. BTW: it looks like your Bolt could use a good scrubbing (by hand).

I bought it used with 2200 miles. According to the build / Vin it's about 1 year old. I wash mine with worx PowerShot by hand. The red dust here makes the car look dirty quickly especially if You don't have a garage.

Garaging , inspections with cleanings seem to help maintain vehicles. Intense sunlight damages materials, coatings finishes. I use Liquid Glass Auto Finish and Armourall type conditioners for outside non metal trim and tires. Ive never used conditioner on the dash and have a dash protector there. If Im parked in heat dcfc and I need to climatize while Im eating, I place a sunreflrctor in the window windscreen with the cutouts for the sensor / mirrors . I also installed sun visor clipons. Works well together on recent Sac to LA road trip.
