Bubbling/separation

Has anyone seen this type of bubbling/separation on the A pillars before? Any idea what has caused it and/or what might remedy it?

Iíve got a little bit of blistering on the rear window sills but man, thatís bad, something went wrong in production. You may want to add more information to your signature (year, model, location) to get better suggestions on how to deal with this. I would find the best interior shop in your area for advice.

The alcantera "fabric" is coming unglued from the frangible cover over the airbags. Even if it's not in warranty I would press my case at the dealer.

Sorry, I should’ve probably mentioned this this is 2008 GT that I’m thinking of purchasing. So it’s well out of warranty and you have to expect some blemishes on a 10+ year-old car. My concern here is that it is some kind of indication that the car was damaged in some way (flood victim) but it sounds like it’s just a manufacturing defect.
