2010 Honda Accord Crosstour: The Gap Won't Leave Me Alone

This weekend as I was driving the Crosstour my gaze fell upon the the gap -- located on the front passenger door -- shown above. I kinda wish it hadn't. Now it's all I can look at when I ride in the thing.

What's striking is that most build quality issues tend to escape my attention unless I get in the car thinking "Right now, I'm going to check this thing out for build quality issues." But the Crosstour's gap entered my experience without invitation. It's a gaping wound. I want to give it stitches.

When I got in today, I checked the blog to see if any other editors had written posts on the Crosstour's build quality shortcomings, and sure enough, our esteemed Mr. Romans provided a thorough analysis of the situation a few months ago.

Are build quality issues a big deal for you guys?
