Tie-down on Tonneau cover
Bought a 2014 controvertible about this last summer; it had 7800 miles on it and was out of Wyoming, so I'm thinking the Tonneau cover may not have seen much use. I stored the car by mid-September so it hadn't seen much use from me this first year until this summer. I discovered a problem this summer, though. My issue is that both of the "figure-eight" shaped, elastic tie-downs the secure the tonneau cover to the car are torn. The loops on each end look fine, but the thick middle section that makes it a figure-eight is almost completely severed on both the driver and passenger side.
With so little use I have to think it was a design/manufacture issue but don't know where to turn to confirm that...so am starting here. Anyone now of issues with the tonneau tie-downs on the 2014 (or any other years) for that matter?
