The problem is that the tail lights

A) fit poorly in the opening
B) have sharp 'flashing' around the edge of the lamp

in many cars this flashing rubs the paint around the 'tip' of the tail lamp on 5-door models, however chipping or rubbing has been found anywhere around the perimeter of the rear lamps. Many people report the plastic pushed up tight around the metal to the point where is squeaks when you lightly push on it.

My damage can ONLY be seen with the lamps off the car but my car also only has 1500 miles on it.
