Default dashboard

Who else is having this same problem dealership told me I was the only person.

I call Chrysler about my 2001 pt cruiser the dash is cracked if we can get everyone to call 1-800-992-1997 or email Chrysler they will recall the dashboards but we must get a large amount of complaints in. It costs about 700.00 with parts and labor to replace the dash.

$700 for a new dash? Thats just wrong. A friend of mine bought one from a junk yard for $100. Takes 15 minutes to replace it.

There's been 1.5 million PT's sold so far. How many do you think have a cracked dash. 100, 200 ? 1/2 of 1%. Chrysler won't even blink an eye.

What is that about?

Recalls are for safety items. A cracked dash is cosmetic. Warranty item, yes, recall, no.

Look itsme1493 the dash in our PT is cracked as well so I understand your frustration but, coming on here and telling people they "like there cars looking like crap" is no way to get any support.
