I'd be ticked if I got such a response.
Basic fit/finish on a 40-50K vehicle is not "extremely minimal", especially since one doesn't generally see that on 20K Hondas or Subarus.
I'm a firm believer in the adage that easily preventable defects in plain sight suggest a strong potential for issues where one cannot see them--as the numerous posters here dealing with vexing electrical issues, etc appear to confirm.
The mere fact that a panel "isn't rubbing" is irrelevant. This isn't 1947.
