Have a 2002 Dodge Ram 3500 that I bought new and the dash has disintegrated. The plastic is defective and has crumbled into a multitude of pieces. These pieces fly out of the air vents into your eyes and are sharp and will cut like a knife. This is a danger not only to my eyes but it I was to have a wreck they would fly and cut you. Have had to remove the pieces from vents that won't blow out that have gotten into the ac/heat door flap. I have never had a dash on any car or truck fall apart like this. If you just touch it it falls apart.

1) electrical problems. Lights kept going in and out 2) dash cracking and crumbling. Pieces falling into air vents and preventing windshield from defrosting! dangerous! could cause an accident. Dash is in such bad shape that if passenger air bag were to be deployed it could kill someone due to flying pieces of hard plastic all over the vehicle. Make Dodge recall this product! what are you waiting for? you already have thousands of complaints for this problem!
