The Charger's interior door panels have been warping and peeling away from where they meet the window since the 2014 model year.
And while some owners have been able to replace the issue under warranty there's a handful of major problems according to a new class-action lawsuit:

- They're betting you won't wait around to replace the panel because it can interfere with the side airbags from deploying and locks from activating.…keep reading article "Charger Owners Are Tired Of Their Door Panels Peeling Off Near the Windows"
