haha...well, the bodies appear to be built to last. Its the interior plastics that don't want to. Hell, I've replaced my glove box twice, it cracks right above the handle for some reason.

EDIT: Oh, and I got a phone call from Chyrsler Corporation today. I missed the call but he said they'd call tomorrow, but, the message said that Brian from RAM was calling regarding my email about my cracked dash and hanging vin plate, and that he would like to speak to me about it.

So, we'll see what happens. Might be able to get a new dash A well deserved new dash as well...lol

So will this continue to worsen? My crack is long but it's not wide. Is there a way to patch it?

My 2003 cracked in half today, right above the passenger airbag. Just got it paid off 2 weeks ago and this happened. Never put anything on the dash, and i've always kept it clean. NOT HAPPY AT ALL!!! I thin dodge should cover this and replace it!

Once it starts, it gets very bad quickly.

Also, your dash is now very brittle, so, be careful when rubbing cleaners on it.

And...talked to Brian from Dodge today, he called, talked to me for a while about it, then, after saying how he would be pretty unhappy if his dash cracked and that he doesn't understand why there is no recall, simply said, your out of warranty, so, there's nothing we can do.

I'm quite ticked off...why would they even bother to call me then.

So...when I end up getting actual written police attention about having aftermarket rivets in my dash, I'll send the bill to Chrysler for it.

I have always been a Chrysler guy, and so has my father...but, after this, this is really starting to make me question their caring about their consumers...loyal consumers at that.

But...we'll see what happens down the road.

Sounds to me like he was just trying to humor you by calling you back. I guess to me, technically, no, they don't have to warranty it, but I mean come on, this goes beyond just honoring a warranty, especially with so many people having the same issue. It should be about standing behind your product and getting the problem fixed, if not for free then at least heavily discounted.

The great people at Chrysler even had the nerve today to send me a survey on how well my problem was dealt with.

I answered it truthfully.

Ugh.
