I got this truck when my dad passed away last year the dash started to crack, now it has caved in with only 28000 miles on it . Dodge needs to do the right thing and replace the dashboard.

cracked dashboard

Apparently dashboard cracking is a common problem with Dodge vehicles. They should have already done something about it but will not take responsibility. All I have to say is I am done with the entire Chrysler Corporation. They make sh*tty products that are far inferior to other brands. I will never buy a Dodge again.

Dodge needs to have a dash recall on this vehicle. Lots of complaints about it. Too expensive for individual to fix. $1,200,00 to $1,500.00. I have even purchased a dash cover & put over it. It is not a good thing for resale value.

cracked dashboard cracked dashboard cracked dashboard

We have been dealing with this problem over 6 years, we kept the dash conditioned with Armor All, and a sun visor for protection. The cracks kept getting worse til it actually started to fall in. An estimate at the Dealership was $1500. I have found out from other Dodge truck owners this is VERY common. The man I talked to at the dealership even said Dodge Rams were bad about having the dash crack. Why has this problem not been addressed? We need the Dodge people to acknowledge there is a problem and at least help us pay for the repairs. My husband is very disillusioned with Dodge! I don't think his next truck, will be a Dodge if this is how they treat their customers!

Would have been a great truck except for the awful dash you have to look at everyday. I have three chrysler products in the driveway now, but will never again. If they would have recalled them to fix them, I might have the faith that they will stand behind their product when it is obviously a horrible design, process, or material defect.

NEVER AGAIN WILL I OWN A CHRYSLER PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!

I own a 1999, 2001' and 2002 dodge ram 1500 pickups, all of the dashboards

have broken apart well before 75000 miles, i own 2 chevy pickups also, 1999 with over 250000 miles on it and a 2006 with 152000 miles and their dashes look just as good as

they did when they were new, for that reason alone I will never own a pc. of crap that falls apart like a dodge does. Dodge needs to recall all of them just as chevy did on the paint jobs of the late 1980's and early 90 models, just so they (dodge) can maybe save face.

NO LONGER A DODGE CUSTOMER

Ram 1500 4x4 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 128,000 miles

My 2001 red dodge truck was beautiful inside and out.I even named it Clifford like the big red dog. My husband and I have taken great care of it , but now the dash makes it look terrible. It started with cracks and now the dash is almost completely broken. that includes the glove comp. and the a/c vents. We have tried to replace it with a used one because a new one would be too exp. but every Dodge truck we see during 99-2001 have the same problem . How can it be that all of the dashes are broken? There has to be a defect and a recall done ASAP.

Ram 1500

  • Automatic transmission

The dash continues to fall apart, the dash bezel surrounding the gauges is falling down on to the steering wheel. The dash went from a few minor cracks, to holes in the dash, to a full collapse. Every bump on the road another piece falls off. I am worried about the broken pieces flying toward my passengers or myself in the event of a motor vehicle accident or other driving hazards. This is obviously a safety issue and needs to be addressed.

Ram 1500 SLT 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 196,000 miles

Dodge is pretty much known for crappy interiors, but this is bullsh!t !!! Let's be very clear on this. My dash is not cracked, IT IS CRATERED!!! It's like someone opened up on it with a 12 gauge. Started bout 3 yrs ago. I just spent the last 7 hours pulling the entire frickin dash out to replace the heater core (yet another piss ass poor design from Mopar and a separate personal b!tch of mine). After getting to the problem, I have no dashboard left. I only broke a couple little pieces in the process. I counted 23, YES twenty frickin three pieces of brittle dash board. DASH COVER CAP??? WTF am I gonna cover??? THERE IS NOT A FLIPPIN THING LEFT TO COVER!!!! Why doesn't someone from Dodge come out and tell me WTF to cover. Now I'm worried about my 2006 Ram half ton. Have had at least a dozen Fords from 60's to present and NONE have had faulty material in the plastic dash. PISS POOR DESIGN CHRYSLER!!! You are part of the reason that America is an outsourced joke. Save a few pennies and stick us with crap you unamerican sons of b!tches. ( NOTE: turn off the passenger side airbag. I guarantee you it's a claymore mine waiting to send dash flak in your kid's face)

I take pride in my vehicle looking as good today as the day I drove it off the showroom floor. I have always used a sunvisor and have kept a conditioner on my dash, so I was very shocked when it cracked. I am disappointing in Dodge for not stepping up and taking action to keep a loyal customer!

Ram 1500 SLT 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission

Top dash panel is completely gone. It broke and collapsed to the point there's nothing left! Even the lower dash pieces are cracked so it's not as simple as replacing the top panel. The glove box door is even cracked. And I just checked with my local dealer, $550 for a new panel. Hey Chrysler - if you're not going to recall this issue you could at least sell us a new panel for $100 or so!

Very disappointed that I am finding out that this is a regular complaint about the Dodge Ram. Should not be a problem in that area. No reason that all Dodge products have the same material on their dashes. Should never crack or break as easy as it does.

  • Automatic transmission

Although many people have had this issue in the past. mine just occurred last year. same as everyone else, the dash just cracked for no reason. I contacted Dodge personally, and they said that there was no recall on the thing. So I asked what it would cost for a new one. Funny thing is, when they checked, there was over 1000 of them on back order. Gee! you think there might be a problem Dodge. Someone needs to figure this out and respond to the thousands of Dodge customers wondering what to do!!

This is a problem for Dodge Ram owner, I do not expect a truck less then 10 years old to have this level of damage. I am getting tried of the cost to repair items on this truck that should not be needing to be repaired. Makes me question buying a Dodge truck in the future.
