The tops on these cars are complete and utter garbage, and the replacement cost through the dealer is about half the value of the car. Looking for a local upholstery shop that can offer some options, or will attempt to repair myself.

Just another disappointing saga with a car I still love to drive, but came with the worst ownership experience imaginable. At least I don't have to fight with our local monopoly dealer anymore...
I currently have the same issue. I went to a local upholstery shop today and the owner told me i would need a new top because there is alot of tension on the top at the rear glass.
