"takata recall" the dash on my truck is all cracked up and I take very good care of my truck. Io came across an article about the Dodge dash's I went right out side and pulled my dash cover back and took a look and to my surprise my dash is all cracked up in many piece's. and I have had it covered since new...I do feel that Dodge should be held reasonable for this, looks like they used cheap plastic on these, I can see it now if I was to have a wreak plastics pieces flying all over the place.
