    2004 Toyota Siennas are experiencing cracks in the dashboard. Not just minor ones, but dashboards that look like someone has sliced them up with a knife. This is a hidden defect which didn't appear until after the 36 month warranty expired, but now is showing up on many '04 Siennas. The cracked dash may interfere with proper deployment of air bag and is a safety hazard. Toyota will not acknowledge, although some individual dealers are standing behind their vehicles and offsetting some of the repair cost. The only solution is to replace the dashboard - very costly!

    I have a spiderweb of cracks across and around my dash. It first started with one or two, my husband heated a nail to 'stop' the initial cracks. Some cracks did actually stop from the heated nail hole, others continued. My car has been garaged and when in a parking lot or at work I use a sun shade. I think this needs to be a recalled item, as the number of complaints are excessive with this issue.

    several cracks by speaker, glove compartment and odometer cover. Called Toyota 800-331-4331. They said it's out of warranty but documented my case. If you have the same issue, contact them, complain and get a case #. I will be useful in case of a lawsuit or perhaps several complains will trigger a recall. No use calling the dealer, they play dumb about the situation. Good luck

    Cracked dashboard from left air.vent spreading across to.the passanger side air vent. 2005 Sienna XLE. There are more cracks on the.side of the dash near the where the door meets.the.dash. Dealer and Toyota customer care say it is cosmetic.
    and the airbag and it may cause the airbag to deploy easier....as if that is normal? This is a defect, not a customer upset about a cosmetic flaw!!

    My Sienna has developed the knife-slash cracks above the glovebox, and along the sides near the steering wheel. Some of the vinyl above the glovebox is falling off...
