"The Best of What We're Made of..."

Well last week (and not long after the 3/36 warranty expired of course) the dash of my wifes GC Overland has begun to shrivel, separate from its backing and its looking like a cheap old car from the 70s.

So I went to the dealer and of course out of warranty I would have to pay for it. A whopping $2600.00. I did not take that "deal". I am in a sour mood about this (it's an Overland isn't that supposed to be top notch? Jeep certainly ask a premium price for it).

My run of the mill 2005 Honda Odyssey has a black dash, never been in the garage, been in South Florida its whole career... and guess what... its dash still looks brand new!

I am going to go to an upholstery shop (or two) and see if they can do some repair work.

Any one have a similar experience or an idea? Thanks

If it really is not to far out of warranty I would try another dealer. Some dealers will call in a favor from their dealer rep to get that warranty still honored with a promise from you to consider them first when you are in the market for another vehicle.
