Dash Recall

Has anyone on here been involved with or taken your car in for the Shiny Dash, Peeling recall?

If you have had it done, how long was your wait to have it replaced after the inspection?

I'm a little worried that I man never see one at this point. Our interior is apparently extremely rare black leather with accompanying black trim throughout the car and the dealer is saying that the majority of them were grey or beige.

Since a Camry "is just a Camry" regardless if it is a TCH or a regular LE, XLE, SE, etc... It must cover all of them from 2007 to 2011. I received a letter for it and took the car in shortly after. Mine was "Shiny and Sticky" with small chunks coming out here and there.

I know that some of the Lexus models were covered as well. Not sure which ones though.

I received the recall from TMC last week on my '08 TCH, grey dash. No stickiness or cracking here, but I use a windshield screen, and the right products on the dash.

snook, I want to see picture of that "leather" dash. I simply can't believe it. Sorry, I know you long enough, but sounds like Bentley, not Camry.

Ha Ha! Silly... The seats, door inserts and armrests are black leather. Not the dash. The fact that it is black seems to be the problem. Not many of them out there. Most of the Camry's of that era either came with a grey or beige interior.

Ha ha, I was envious for a moment. It's dash thread and "our interior is black leather " 1. Confused me and 2. Reminded me of very nice faux leather DASH in Avalon. Hence the question.

I meant to post this a couple days ago and forgot. So, I talked to the dealer again about this last week. Apparently they only get between 5 and 6 dashboards a week and they have no idea what color they are going to get when they arrive.

There is a master list that each dealer has and they base the repair on who actually comes in to claim it. I am number 390 on the list. So, in reality based on what they say they receive and the fact that they have no idea of the colors, I may never get one or it will be years and I may not even own the car anymore.

Looks like I'm going to buy a cover or one of those ugly pads to hide the nasty thing for now....

I plan to. It's a shame on an otherwise nice car with an interior that still looks new.

Years 2007-2009 on the Camry.

**update**

It's been nearly a year now and my rare as hens teeth "black dash" has come in! I'm dropping the car off Monday to get it installed.

Now, the question is, can they install it without damaging anything or causing rattles? When I had an AC repair done last year, they scratched the crap out of a couple of the switches on the AC control and messed up the window tint on the drivers window. We'll see...

Hmmm... There was a noise repair kit from Toyota for those years. Specifically for dash noises. Redesigned clips or something. Maybe take some culinary encouragement to dealer and have them install those, while "they are there"?

Sticky dash???

I called Toyota call center the other day about my 2009 Camry Hybrid's sticky dash issue. You HAVE to report it by the end of this year to get a replacement under the "Extended Warranty". Just took my vehicle today to a local dealer who stated it would take a year or maybe even two for the dash to come in, they're all backordered. I don't know if she's full of it or not but she just left me a voicemail a few minutes ago to say they have one in stock, called her back but she's busy so I am awaiting a return call.

If you have a sticky dash and have not yet called Toyota I would advise doing so ASAP, get a free replacement dash. Here's a link with some info but disregard the "Ending in May" proclamation on the first link or any links you see!:

Chances are it won't take that long. I got put on the list last year and had a new one in a few months after being told the same thing.
