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

My 2006 solara dashboard has started cracking all over .first cracks on the passenger air bag area, then just all around the perimeter of dash pad. Has Toyota placed a recall for this major issue?

I'm finished with Toyota. Bought this car new and spent a lot of money on it. Called them yrs. ago to report problem and they won't do a thing. This is my 2nd and last Toyota! Horrible customer experience at dealers and 800 no.

Toyota Solara Convertible dashboard is sticky, shiny , almost melting. Car garaged 8 months of the year.. used 4 months Jan - April. Not in summertime. Excellent condition exterior and engine maintained. But Dashboard will make this car impossible to sell as is.
Toyota and local dealership will do nothing about it. Want $2500 to replace the dash. They said they have not heard of anyone making a complaint about dashboard problems, yet there are hundreds of complaints on the internet and one website had over 8,000 hits.
Toyota will not step up to admit to a defect on their part. This should not be happening to a car that is well taken care of and garaged most of the year. I for one will join the many who now say they will NEVER buy another Toyota again.. even tho we have owned 3 before this. We are done with Toyota.
My Toyota Solara 2005 started to have cracks since 2008, I have reported the problem to the dealership, they called Toyota Manufacturers and they said they will not repair it. Because is not under warranty any longer.

Cracks throughout dashboard, growing monthly, no help from Toyota Dealer or Toyota in California. Dealer estimates $1,400 to replace dash cover. Very ugly and getting worse.

Dashboard long cracks that destroy value of car. Both passenger side and driver side. Car now has 50K miles and will never buy another Toyota product as all dealer says it is out of warranty.
