I have an '05 HSE purchased new in November of 2005. I have used a windshield sun shade from day one but, it happened anyways. I have about six cracks, each about one inch long radiating outward from the the de-mister vents on each end of the dash. The first one appeared about a month ago and I seem to get a new one each week. I stopped the propagation by filling in with super glue but it looks like crap. Has anyone else had this happen? Is there any repair. I'm out of warranty by 12,000 miles so I guess I'm out of luck. I think the D1's had major problems with dash cracks and were repaired under warranty. Is there sun in England? Mud, rocks, and river crossings won't hurt a Land Rover but, leave it out in the sun and the dash cracks, the wipers blades melt to the glass, and all the exterior plastic evaporates. I've owned Jeep wranglers that went years with no top. The seats fell apart but the dash never cracked.
