I have a 2006 Lexus GX 470 and the dashboard is cracked from the drivers side to the end on the passenger side. It is very unsightly and I hate the look of this car every time I get in this vehicle. I have look for answer everywhere but to no avail.
The struts are leaking and the vehicle currently rides worst than a wagon. the current mileage is 69,000.

Has anyone had early problems with the suspension system?

Yes. I have had the same problem for the last 4-5 years. It is getting uglier; even by the air vents I have cracks now. I have read that if you call Lexus Corp and raise enough stink about it, they will get u a free replacement. However, they want a dealership to do the installation...which can be $300 or so... I have not confirmed this's on my "to do" list.

Yes, my 2004 gx470 has a cracked dash. The crack runs from driver side to passenger side. This happened in 2009 and my lexus is mainly garaged kept. It's unsightly and makes the resale value low. Lexus needs to fix this before I buy another.

My 2003 GX470 has a horribly cracked dash board. A couple years ago, I raised a stink with every avenue I could. (I read there is a class action suit in Australia about the cracks.) I finally got Lexus to say that they would supply the new dash, but I would have to pay the dealer $500 to install it. I began negotiation with the dealer (where I had purchased 3 Lexus) and they would not budge on the price. I decided to live with the dash and NEVER purchase another Lexus. I am so done with them! Since then, I have accessorized the cracks with rhinestones and duck tape. I call it my "Glam Hooptie Lexus".

There is a maufacture recall for the dashboards. We received ours in December 2015. Good luck.
