Replacement replacement dash?

My FX is an 06 and has tubbles in the dash. This beautiful blue baby is new to me, but is still in facory warranty. Here is my question. The local dealer in Dallas looked it up and the dashpad was replaced in December of 2007. The dealer didnt bat an eye and said bring it in and they will fix it again. Here is my question: Has Infiniti improved the materials, or will the new one do the same thing. Face it, Dallas will always be hot and humid and I dont want to replace the dash every couple years.

Re: Replacement replacement dash?

Based on the fact that the problem has covered at least 4 model years, I am betting the replacement dashes will eventually do the same thing. The replacement in my old FX35 is still perfect, but it has also only been a little over a year.

My '06 FX45 has a small area forming to the right of the navigation.

Re: Replacement replacement dash?

Going in next week to get mine replaced. Anyone have any electrical or fit and finish issues after having the dash replaced?

Re: Replacement replacement dash?

i will bubble again. my fx came from dallas (grand prairie). same problem. i asked my parts guy and he said they are all the same (fit finish& material), unfortunately. its gotta be the texas heat. i think the adhesive materials are defective.
fortunately, the price dropped on the dash assembly for those out of warranty.

Re: Replacement replacement dash?

Update: in a matter of a couple months, the bubbles multiplied like rabbits. So the new dash is is now in. Installed by Infiniti in Dallas. I even got a new G37 for a loaner (Hot little car but I couldnt wait to get the FX back). The dash fit is perfect. No squeeks or rattles (and there were before). There is a slight difference in the texture and feel of the dash, so it appears to be "new and improved". In the previous dash, you could see a faint outline where the passenger airbag was. This is not detectable in the new dash. I will give it a while and see how things hold up.

abcamp, did infiniti provide you with a receipt for the replacement dash? If so, does it show a part number? I'm trying to verify whether or not infiniti changed the dash material before I order a new dash.

Re: Replacement replacement dash?

Update: I just went to the dealer today for an oil change and mentioned the bubble on my dash. Even though I am outside of the warranty, they offered to replace it free and they did not need to be persuaded to do so. Seems like Infiniti may be coming to terms with the fact that the dash is defective and should be replaced at any mileage.
