I got recall for dash board under steering column stating it needed to be fixed because of possible problem of falling off while driving causing a major accident.. took vehicle in for recall. One week later while driving, the dash board under steering column fell off and landed on my feet. I had to stop my vehicle in the road to remove dash. Returned to dealership and complained. They put piece back on. Now, approximately two months later the same piece fell off again. If this is a recall, the fix is worse than the original !!!!!
