THE DASHBOARD ON MY TRUCK STARTED WITH MASSIVE CRACKING AND HAS NOW FULLY COLLAPSED. ONLINE RESEARCH SHOWS THAT MANY HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM WITH THE SAME MAKE AND YEAR OF THE VEHICLE. I'VE CALLED DODGE AND THEY CLAIM THAT SINCE THERE IS NO OFFICIAL RECALL, AND THE TRUCK IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY, THERE IS NOTHING THEY CAN DO. I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT AN ENTIRE COLLAPSE OF THE DASHBOARD IS NORMAL AND IS A MANUFACTURER'S DEFECT. THIS, OF COURSE, CAN THEN EXPOSES THE INSTRUMENTS AND WIRES UNDERNEATH TO THE EXTREME HEAT WHICH HAS ADDITIONAL SAFETY CONCERNS.

THE DASH ON MY 2001 DODGE 1500, BEGAN TO CRACK A FEW YEARS AGO FOR NO APPARENT REASON. NOW, THERE ARE SEVERAL LONG CRACKS AND LARGE SECTIONS OF THE DASH ARE RATTLING. I AM HAVING INTERMITTENT ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS WITH THE INSTRUMENT PANEL. FREQUENTLY, NONE OF THE DASH DISPLAYS WORK, INCLUDING SPEEDOMETER, ODOMETER AND THE FUEL GAUGE. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS PROBLEM. I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT PART OF THE DASH IS GOING TO FALL IN OR FALL OFF WHILE I AM DRIVING OR AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM WILL OCCUR WHILE DRIVING. ON-LINE SEARCHES HAVE REVEALED THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY REPORTED THIS PROBLEM AND THE SAFETY CONCERNS THAT THEY HAVE.
