Dash replacement

My 2012 Overland was delivered with large wrinkles in the dash. The dealer threw in some extras including the molded mudflaps to keep me happy but now I have an appt. next week to get the dash replaced. I was wondering if other members had, had there dashes fixed and how the fix went for them.

Re: Dash replacement

I don't know what constitites as large, but my leather dash does have some wrinkles since it is real leather. Leathers do have characteristics that are inherent in them beng real leather.

Re: Dash replacement

Sorry about the description. They are actually bubbles where the leather did not adhere to the dash,it just looks wrinkled. I'm not sure if the leather is glued to the dash but obviously they missed some spots or the glue didn't cure properly. The worst spots are right behind the hump for the instrument cluster.
