2006 Acura TL - Dash cracking

Terrible cracks all across dashboard Started on passenger side.

14 year old vehicle and it can happen to any brand . Just do a web search for dash covers because replacing the dash will be expensive.

I entered neutral as a color because iI don’t know the color of your interior.

I have this problem. I ignore it.

Cracking was an issue on the 3rd gen TL, though it seemed to be confined to places with lots of sun and heat when cars were parked outside a lot. Live anywhere like Phoenix or Miami by chance?

The only solution is a dash replacement. Sucks, I know. A cheaper though less attractive option would be a fitted dash mat, but you’d have to be careful - there are airbags under there that the dash mat would have to be designed to accommodate.
