    I would like to join a class action lawsuit regarding this issue. My car currently has about 45,000 after almost 8 years of use. The cracking started after 4 years! I had no idea there were others out there like me.

    dashboard is cracking and disintegrating. The dealer didn't want to help, told me to call 1-800-GO-TOYOTA, which I did, they were useless and told be to go through the dealer. Due to many reports of this issue in many of their models, there is clearly a defect in the material used and Toyota is not standing by their product. I am going to attempt to go through the attorney general's office.

    My car developed these cracks along the top and sides of the dashboard and the panel under the glovebox. It's also very gummy to the touch. I recently had to bring my car in to the dealership for a recall on the crankshaft pully. I asked about the dashboard and the service manager said sometimes Toyota will give the parts as an act of goodwill but I would need to pay the installation. I have been since informed that my car is to old (2005) and Toyota declined the goodwill request. Cot to repalace is $2,000.00

    Cracks all over dashboard. Dealers would do nothing. Went to California headquarters via telephone and after repeated demands that this may be a silent recall issue they finally paid for 80% of the fix. Keep pushing your complaint up the ladder and they will do something.

    Long cracks along front Dash. Not caused by sun damage. Looks like a material defect.

    Same problem as everyone else has described. Gummy feeling started first on the gear shift when the material became worn. Second location where this occurred was on the driver side door where my elbow and forearm sat (when the window wasn't down and my arm was up there). Third location was when the passenger side dashboard cracks began to appear above the glove box. So far there are probably between 5 and 10 cracks. I'm guessing this will just continue to get worse.

    I to have a problem with my dashboard. It is cracked from above the steering wheel across and around the radio and over to the other side. The worst area is above the glove box. It looks like a spider web. When I took my car to the dealers they said it was because I used armor all which I have never used. Then I was told it would cost me $1100 dollars for a new one and that it didn't include labor.This all started at 44,000 miles.
