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.
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.

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.

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 in dash seemed to pop up over night and getting worse every day. Before that happened I noticed the dash was very sticky. I thought that I had used a bad product to clean it until another solara owner asked me if I was having these problems. Which led me here. The arm rest are also wrinkled. And before all that happened the back window came unglued and all the stitching fell apart on the top. Can't wait to see what's next!!
