no, I’m not worried about the cracks in the seam between the C-pillar and roof of my car.
I’m wondering whether they are always there, on all cars. Does anybody know?
I’m looking for another 9-5 and virtually all cars have the cracks.
However, the cars that do NOT have the cracks have an ’almost too good to be true’ paint for a 10 year old car.
Is a crack free joint a sure sign of a repainted car? I checked for paint thickness on one of them and the thickness turns out to be in the normal range (90-130 um).27 oktober, 2014 kl. 13:29 #199075
I asked somebody who sees a lot of 9-5 sedans through the year and he said they all have it.
So if no cracks: re-painted or never driven 😉 .27 oktober, 2014 kl. 18:56 #199101turbocabDeltagare
No, they dont. Well, my 2001 Aero is 100% original paint and does not have any of the cracks. But, its never winterdriven and have spent very little time in the sun too. I think the sun is the killer here, Im guessing the heating of the roof makes things move and the paint is not flexible enough there. So, above is maybe correct – cars never driven dont have it… But mine has done 140.000 kms, but only in swedish (cold…) summer.10 november, 2014 kl. 08:13 #199495
That is interesting!
I came across a 9-5 sedan without cracks and checked it with a new paint thickness meter and the paint was within factory spec thickness.
I was almost thinking that they stripped that car to metal and repainted it otherwise they would never be able to maintain the +- 100 um paint thickness.
I noted that the underside was also rust free and in very nice shape so maybe it has been sitting in a garage a lot.10 november, 2014 kl. 08:41 #199499Mr_SunBearDeltagare
I belive the craks apears because lack of flexibility in the sealing compound. I have a 9-5 2003 sedan with 240000 km and it have craks on the right side but not on the left side.

Or maybe the sealing compound flexes very well under the paint, but the paint dont? I would assume that cars with little exposure to extreme temperatures dont suffer the problem so much, at least its the likely reason for my car not having it.
