Jeep likely used cheap and improperly tested adhesive, just like the falling off fender flares. Dashes falling apart in the sun was concurred years ago by manufacturers. My last two cars sat unprotected in the sun for 10 years and the dashes were just fine, no issues. I can see I too have a small bubble forming after 3 years on this GC dash which will likely get worse. No vehicle lasts forever but you should not see this type stuff after as short a time as three years even if you were to park in the desert round the clock.

Re: Dreaded Dash Bubbles and Wrinkles

Update!!

All I can say is that I bow to Kori from JeepCares, without her I entirely believe my dealer would of blown me off completely which they did initially.

Kori managed to wrestle with them and got them to agree to a Good Faith Repair at the cost of my Maxcare deductible!
SRT will be going in for repair in about 2 weeks, Ill be sure to post results!

Again i don't believe this would of happened without having Kori!

Re: Dreaded Dash Bubbles and Wrinkles

Update:

New Dash Installed. Smells so nice. It appears to be a revised dash tho. behind the console is so much steeper than before.

Looks great! all thanks to Kori.

Re: Dreaded Dash Bubbles and Wrinkles

2015 Overland
Bought with defect in left a pillar area,was marked down 10,000 with 7200 miles so I took a gamble and let the dealer repair after I bought it. Replacement went well , only found one clip between the seats after the job was finished. After three weeks of wife driving car and saying windshield fogs on outside with a/c on. I check it out,floor air doesn't blow,panel air leaks into defrost vent. Make another appointment ,tech admits missing a plug for servo control all is good now. Also outside air temp took a while to reboot after 4 miles it started sensing correct temp. So check everything out after this repair.
Good Day

Re: Dreaded Dash Bubbles and Wrinkles

Mine is at the dealership now getting it looked at. They marked it covered under warranty, so we'll see what they say tomorrow when they call me.

I am not getting any satisfaction. Jeep wants me to pay $ 2,200 and they will pay $ 1,500 to replace the entire dash. Why? I did not cause the problem. It's their fault as you can see from all the people having this problem. We paid dang near 60K for this vehicle & with 27K miles and 21 days out of warranty we should have to pay to have their problem fixed? No way I am doing that & I told them that and to come back with a better offer. we will see what they say.

What can be done for this. I've read some threads where dealer just takes pictures submits it to Chrysler and they say Yes cover under maxcare deductible or we Split it with you etc?

got 76k miles.

I do have decent relationship with my dealer.

Anybody had to pay out of pocket and what it cost?

Or anybody know someone I can call if dealer rejects etc.

Thanks.
Ours is a lot worse than that!!
