Default Chrome coming off grill surround 2010 HS

I have to say that I have really liked my 2010 HS in the two years that I’ve owned it, but I am concerned about this problem with the grill surround that I just noticed yesterday. The chrome is actually coming off of the sur

round, which is original to the car. Has anyone else had this problem?

It should be noted that we experienced some extremely cold temperatures here last week (-45 F), but the car was not washed, nor did it go from a heated garage to that cold.

Lexus is considering whether they'll help me at all with a replacement part. Stay tuned. Whether they do or not, they've been good to me in the past (this is our 5th Lexus). I think most companies would not even consider any assistance with a nine year old car with 138,000 miles.

Assuming the cold had anything to do with this, it would seem like a good thing to know for everyone on this site. Though I'll bet most of you are fortunate enough to live somewhere that it doesn't get this cold.

I've got a 2010 with 96K and live in eastern Virginia (not cold...especially this year) and haven't experienced anything like that. Good luck with Lexus. They've been pretty good to me too.

Wow, that is crazy and glad that Lexus is considering helping you out. Hopefully they warranty out the chrome surround.

I also have a 2010 HS 250h and love the car as well. I live in sunny southern California and we complain when it gets in the 40's...

My car came from that area. I bought it at LAX from a guy who lives in the south LA area. It was sold new in San Diego. If cars have personalities I'm sure it's wondering how it ended up in such a cold place.
