Has anyone else experienced the "Chrome" coating on the plastic door opener peeling off. 
It's happened on both the front and passenger doors at much the same time, but not on the rear door handles. 
Strange that it occured concurrently as the drivers door clearly gets more use and if it's not use related, why are the rear handles OK? 
I got quite a nasty cut from one handle and have filed off the loose "chrome" and covered the handle with insulation tape.

same, happened to mine at around 2 1/2 - 3 years, cut a passengers finger , and was front only , altho rear hardly got any use. terrible, the coatings on the radio, the rubberised coatings on window switces, the handbrake lever button, all a disgrace to be honest, esp when u look at cars that are 20+ years old and the coatings are in better nic. ... yes i feel pained about it lol

I haven't had an issue with the switches etc. but the covering of the steering wheel is wrinkled as if it is not securely attached to the substrate.

Same on my driver's door release (including a cut), the leatherette on the steering wheel and heavy wear on the gear knob.
I had just assumed that the previous owner had been a big fan of chunky rings...Ermm

Anyone recommend any good aftermarket steering wheel covers or gear knobs?
