There was at least once incident where the roof rail molding had blown off someone's car at 70 mph, but that's the only case of plastic parts coming off of the car that had come up here.

It seems more likely that something external would cause the lower rocker cover to come loose/ break than it just falling off on its own, so the onus would be to prove that it was not hit by anything else.

That stinks, but it doesn't seem to be common enough to have even been mentioned here before.
Thanks for that. That's not what I was expecting to hear, but that's definitely the information I was looking for. So thanks again. This really is a great forum and I'm glad that I came across it during my research. I'll let you know how all of this turns out in the end.
