Thumbs down 2013 Camaro steering wheel tearing, problem

I left my Camaro outside over night and when I get into this morning my steering wheel has tears / ripples in it.

I'm 100% sure I didn't rub or do anything to cause it. I did some research and found the evolutions had this problem on their wheels.

My local dealer is closed so I wanted to post it hear before I take it into the dealer.

I'm not a happy camper.

I'll attach pics tonight.

Sorry to hear that, I've never seen this before. Mine is always outside and only been in the garage one time in 4 years. I would like to know what it turns out to be...good luck!

While driving into work this morning I was looking at the wheel. It looks like more ripples are starting to form, and the entire right side next to the steering wheel buttons seems to be coming loose.

Sounds like a warranty issue.

If not, the wheels can be bought new for fairly cheap.

Called and scheduled an appointment for 7:00 am tomorrow. Service writer didn't say anything, but they will look at it. So I guess I'll find more out tomorrow. I'll try and get a picture of the middle by the radio controls later this evening when I get time.

That looks like when you scratch leather.

I'm 100% positive I did not scratch the leather. Also looks like more ridges are forming.
