    Question Dash Cracking...has this happened to anyone?

    My dash on my 2007 Escalade has cracked in two places over the last 6 months, one by the drivers side and one by the passengers side. Here are pictures: http://imgur.com/a/lg1Qw

    Has this cracking happened to anyone else? It is such an eyesore and I'd like to fix it, I'm not sure where I can get a new dash, or part of a new dash.

    Any suggestions?

    I read thats a common issue on the Tahoes and regular Yukons never saw that happen on a Escalade because our dash's are made of the softer material not the cheaper plastic the Tahoes etc. use

    Here's my driver's side dash crack from my 08 as well as the lovely pillar with the cloth coming off. The crack eventually went all the way through.

    I have a 2008 Escalade and 3 weeks ago I had a crack appear in the dash at almost the exact same place as your driver side crack. I am still under the factory bumper to bumper warranty. Is it covered?

    And for the record it is common. All the trucks share the same dash.

    this is a really disappointing fact. Basically it seems that all an escalade consists of is a Yukon Denali with a different front on it. The escalade's headlights (the new led optional setup) make it worth it to have an escalade over the Denali but there should be more to it than that.

    Unhappy Re: Dash Cracking...has this happened to anyone?

    Wow! This same thing happened to me in the exact same places! I have always used sun visors or parked indoors so I know it is not from the sun. I wonder how many other owners have the same problems. Wonder what is causing this....any info out there?
