Have a cracked dash in multiple places looks like a bomb went off under it local dealer says it doesn't know of any other complaints in my area. Feel Dodge Corp should replace for free as a defective part. To many complaints not to be a defect in the plastic.

Like everyone else on this site my 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 has a cracked dash. Almost the entire thing has fallen in on itself. I've started removing the broken pieces and throwing them under my seats so that I don't get cut to pieces from flying debris if I ever have a crash. I've been looking for a match at pick and pull places but all I've seen have the same problem. It's sad that my truck is worthless now. If I could ever sell it I'd go and buy a F150. That may be why they will not put out a recall. I like the idea of my fellow San Antonio about parking just off of a Dodge Dealership with a sign. Just don't put it on the windshield where it blocks the view of the problem. You can use my POS anyday. The transmission has been acting up ever since I had to break hard to keep from hitting a kid who ran across the street in front of me but I just throw it into whatever gear it will drive in and start moving it back up to drive just like I was driving a manual w/o a clutch.

Ram 1500 3.9L

  • Manual transmission
  • 67,000 miles

My dash cracked on the right side from the windshield to the outer edge. A few days later it had two more cracks of the same type in the middle of the dash. Then it cracked on the driver side and now the black cover around the instrument cluster is broken. Now there is a big hole in the dash right in front center. I tried to glue the parts back together just to fill the hole but the glue will not hold. I was going to use it for a cup holder but I had trouble seeing around the bottle of Coke. I gave up on that. With the fuel prices I can fix my dash or I can keep going to work but not both. If Dodge will not fix this problem I won't be buying another one (Dodge).

Well like everyone here my dash has also split wide open and all over, and I have sent emails to Chrysler about this problem and was told my warranty was out. I also have a 1990 dodge ram D150 that does not have 1 crack on the dash in the same heat and sun as the other truck. The problem is not only the dash pad / cover but also the plastic frame that supports the dash pad / cover underneath. my frame is also cracking, The best glue if you want to try to piece your dash back together that i have found is permatex plastic weld available at Advance Auto Parts epoxy that you mix together works great once bonded let sit for 4 hours and fully cure good as new. they also sell a plastic dash cover cap for under $200.00

AS I WAS SHOPPING AROUND FOR A NEW DASH I STUMBLED ACROSS THIS SITE AND HAD READ THE NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS OF THE SAME PROBLEM THAT I AM HAVING WITH MY DASH BOARD. MY DASH BOARD HAS MORE CRACKS IN IT THAN CLINT EASTWOOD HAS WRINKLES ON HIS FACE. GET THE PICTURE. THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS FROM DODGE. MY TRUCK IS A 2001 RAM QUAD CAB WITH 64,000 MILES. PRETTY MUCH IN A-1 CONDITION. NOT ONLY DO I GET TOLD WHAT A BEAUTIFUL TRUCK BUT I ALSO GET " WOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DASH" . FOR A TRUCK THAT ISN'T THAT OLD ( 8 YRS.) AND THE DEALER WANTS ALMOST $500, DODGE SHOULD MAKE GOOD ON THIS AND DO A GOOD DEED AND RECALL THEM.

I have a dodge ram 1500, the dash has a crack in it. I'm afraid that the airbag would not deploy if I had a accident. I guess when someone dies, then maybe

Dodge will do something about it. We need to start a class action lawsuit against Dodge. Contact your representatives in your state. See what we can do.Send a copy of all the complaints to them. Larry S.

I reported the first crack in my dash about a year ago. Now, I have another!! I am guessing that I am going to have to shell out some money to replace it, or end up with my dash totally falling apart. What a crappy product.

  • Automatic transmission

We bought our Dodge 1500 pickup brand new in 2001 and the dash board started to crack everywhere just 3 years later, my husband has it looking so beautiful and in immaculate condition but the dash is the part that makes it look so awful. I am happy to say that I will NEVER purchase another Dodge vehicle as long as Chrysler Dodge refuses to stand behind their products. I am disgusted by their lack of intelligence! We also had to the replace the transmission at a cost of $3000. The A\C is going bad as well, I really think the cracked dash has effected the A\C in some way. I say drive around a Dodge dealership with signs that say that DODGE dashboards are defected and see what they do : ) I will try that first! I'll let you know what happens!

  • Automatic transmission

Dodge again and its range of 1994-2001 Rams have all had cracked dashboard complaints more than normal. I believe that Dodge should recall these dashboards as the product is a piece of sh*t. Also all transmissions in these years were pretty crappy too. I have replaced the tranny, but I refuse to pay that much for a Dashboard!!!!. Anyone know where to get a new dash for this vehicle cheap???

Thanks,

Dave

Ram 1500 SLT Laramie 5.9L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles

I bought my Ram in May of 2008 from the used vehicles department of my local Dodge dealer. The dash was cracked so bad that the dealer had a new dash installed for free (which was a BIG relief). I drove the truck for barely 4 months and now there are 2 cracks on the dash piece above the instrument panel. My interior is immaculate except for those 2 stupid cracks. I love Dodge trucks but it's ridiculous when this many people complain and have the same problem and still Dodge refuses to issue a recall. It's no wonder people aren't buying Dodge trucks now-a-days. I just hope they get their act together or else I'm afraid they may go under.

MY DASH HAS BEEN CRACKING OVER THE LAST YEAR AND 1/2. THE CRACKS LOOK IDENTICAL TO PICTURES OF OTHER DODGE TRUCK DASHES I'VE SEEN ON THE INTERNET AND NEWS. I AND SO MANY OTHER OWNERS ARE EXPERIENCING CRACKS THAT A SAFETY RECALL SHOULD BE ISSUED IMMEDIATELY BEFORE SOMEONE IS SERIOUSLY INJURED BECAUSE OF THE FAULTY PLASTIC USED ON ALL THESE DODGE TRUCKS.
