2005 Toyota Solara Problems

Cracks in dashboard

My Solara has cracks throughout the entire dashboard. Toyota has been useless on this issue, the only issue, my car has

Check Engine Light Due to Failed Oxygen Sensor

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because a component of the oxygen sensor stops working. As a result the engine computer is unable to determine the proper ratio of air to fuel for the engine. Replacing the failed oxygen sensor should correct this concern.

Low Engine Idle and/or Stalling Due to Dirty Idle Air Control Valve

Debris can get into the idle air control valve. This will restrict the air flow into the engine, causing idle speed and/or stalling when cold. The valve can be cleaned or replaced to correct this concern.

2005 Toyota Solara, beautiful, except for 3 issues: 1. The dashboard is cracked all across the top of the instrument panel and down the sides to the windows and down to the radio. Have estimates to replace at $1,800.00. 2. Has a slight hesitation when I push the gas pedal. 3. When I put the convertible top down or up my radio fades out.
