Door panel cracks

This is a discussion on Door panel cracks within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I believe a new replacement panel is $400 too....

    Oh mine are both cracked. AND I WAS IN THE CAR WHEN IT HAPPENED. I was just driving along, no holes, no acceleration, no braking....SNAP, SNAP! Just like that, they both cracked.

    Which brings me to the beloved GTO interior.

    Did anyone ever think the interior is nice because the car...NEW?

    Our interior was fantabulous when the car was new too.

    I'm betting it's body flex, and I bet it's way more pronounced in cars with T-tops....I have a '97 T/A hardtop with 61K miles...neither door pannel is cracked. I also have a '99 WS6 Formula with T-tops, only 30K miles....both driver and passenger side door panels are cracked...just curious...if you have cracked door pannels, do you have a hard top or T-tops?

    I woulda said that first, but I wanted to pull out a more direct reason why the GTO seems nice to people.

    I really doubt it's from temperature extremes, as people all over the US have complained about it.
    PontiacFan is correct. When the window is put all of the way down it pushes out on the door panels. I think just about every car I looked at had this problem. Luckily the one we purchased had been fixed by the previous owner. Unfortunatly the new panels are starting to crack.
