problem #4

Dec 262006

(reported on)

Ram 1500 5.9L SMPI V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


My dash cracked at about 3 yrs old. The crack (cracks) started at the windshield where it is bolted down so I think it is two problems. Installation and material composition. This looks like sh** and will more than likely have me looking at a different manufacturer for my next truck. To be honest I loved the body style and many other things about this truck and didn't really give the dash a second thought when I bought it, but in the future I will make sure to notice cheap sh** that these auto manufacturers try to get by with to cut costs.

Ram 1500 Quad Sport 4x4

The dashboard in my truck has a huge single crack running from the windshield to the glovebox on the passenger side. The truck has never been wrecked or hit that would cause a crack of this magnitude. Only thing I can think of is the heat here in FL. Strange though that this is the only vehicle we have ever owned that this has happened to, and all the others were in the sun all day too. I am currently aware of two other Dodge Ram truck owners we know that have had the same problem. Same truck, same year. Coincidence?

The dashboard on this truck just started cracking at the defroster vents and large pieces broke completely off. There was one of those reflector things in the windshield and it still cracked. To fix the dash with a new one is over $700 and you can't get a used one because they all crack like this. I bought a tube of epoxy at Wal-Mart and put the pieces back together and I bought a dash cover at AutoZone for $24 and it now looks a lot better and I don't have to worry about pieces of plastic hitting me in the face if I have an accident.
