Starting to get some cracks in the dashboard in odd places like near the sides of the radio, etc. Does anyone have a good tutorial on removal?

Thinking of removing it during the winter and having it covered in alcantara

I would like to read about it also. Seems like a major task. Does the windshield need to come out?

Actually found the instructions in the service manual from NickTO, looks fairly straight forward and the windshield does not need to be removed

The 2009's dash was for SURE made from the exact same shit the Altima's were, and it's garbage.

Still don't understand why owners have to pay $250 out of the $2,000 since it's Nissan's screw up

 

"If approved, the Altima settlement will see Nissan cover the cost of replacing the dashboards as long as owners pay $250 of the approximate $2,000 price tag."

Has anyone successfully gotten their GTR dash replaced by the dealer?

I think I remember ONE from about six years back.  Florida car.  Looked like absolute shit.  Chunks were falling out at three years old.

My 2012 with 30k on it has bunch of them. Today I decided to start a FB profile here: https://www.facebook...rackeddashowner

to have people share their pics to create awareness of the dash quality issue on Nissan vehicles. Feel free to send a friend request and post yours.

Make sure to tag @NissanReviews @NissanUSA  and your local dealerships. Use words like "disappointed", "bad quality", frustrated", etc. when describing your issue. These big organizations have tech to monitor "sentiment" around their brand in social media sites. Perhaps one hit of these AI bots it's all it takes to get the right people aware of the issue and have them address it.  Where I live, we were offered a 20% discount on the parts... which to me is just ridiculous.
