As noted at the 6:50 mark of the following video, it appears Toyota is skinching on fender liners - have any of you noted this on the CC? Should You Buy a Toyota Corolla in 2023? I Have Good News and Bad News! - YouTube
That's disappointing. Cost cutting and skinching like this isn't going to help long-term durability :-(Per that video, the Corolla liner looks very similar to the Cross'. It doesn't go the full width of the wheel well, which gives a good high-pressure jet of water a way to grab it and fold it inward.
