My dashboard started cracking shortly after I purchased this truck. Now the dash is cracked in a way that if I touch it or if any weight is up on it, it will collapse on itself. The dealer told me that I would have to file a complaint regarding it or pay them a significant amount to remove and replace the dash with a similar dashboard, which may crack and break apart in the future as well. After speaking to the dealer I went to touch the dash, it buckled and pinched my hand from one of the cracks. Pulling my hand up the dash then layered itself.

Dodge Ram 1500 pickups have two expensive/serious problems. (1) the air-conditioner evaporators under the dash fail and (2) the dash itself cracks in several places, so when the ac repairs (involving dash removal) take place, the mechanic tells you he/she has to also replace the dash...which is true. Many many complaints of dash cover failures in Dodge Ram 1500 and other similar vehicles. Repairs run $1200 or more. Dash should be a recall item.

I own a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 truck. I purchased it used. When I puchased my truck the dashboard had two hierline cracks in it and I thought nothing about it. Over the last 8 months, my dashboard has been falling apart. Now I have cracks all over it and pieces coming off. There is a 10" hole on the drivers side. It is cavening in a little more everyday. I have done nothing to cause this problem. My father informed me of an orlando, fl news station (local 6) that has done an investigation on this problem and though their website and news articles I was directed here. I'm reporting my problem so I can have it documented.
