Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a proposed class action lawsuit against Infiniti (Nissan North America) for selling FX35 and FX45 model vehicles to consumers with dashboards prone to bubbling on the surface. It is believed that these Infinitis were outfitted with an insufficient and/or defective solvent used to adhere the dashboard cover material to the dash structure. Over time, this solvent has been known to release thereby allowing the dashboard cover material to bubble on the surface. This defect may cost consumers approximately $1200 for a dashboard replacement and ultimately diminish the value of such vehicles.
If you have experienced the above in your Infiniti FX35 and/or FX45 then please contact the following attorneys:

I agree with Tony Reeves, Nissan is a fraud and should not sell or advertise their so-called luxury cars on TV in the USA. I worked hard to invest in my Infiniti FX 35 (2005). I bought it brand new from a dealership in 2006. So even though I only owned it for 7 years, the extended warranty only covers 8 years and I missed it by 2 months and 28 days. I don't understand why there is not a class action law suit against INFINITI on tis. Obviously they have duped the american public and they are not standing by their product. We are left to hold the sh_ t-bag. This is an issue that is all over and who can even say that the replacement dashboard they are putting into these other cars will not bubble in a few years. The fact that my car took 8 years to bubble is an issue. I usually keep my cars for 10+ years and there have been no issues. I am so mad that Infiniti is sticking me with this. I hope more people write and complain. I hope that the US Consumer Affairs see this as a continuous issue and does something about it. I will never buy an Infiniti a Nissan car again. Before this all happened, I was thinking of trading up to a JX, but not in this lifetime!

Nissan is a fraud. Afraid of US consumers they replaced defected dashboards for models 03-08. But outside US; they simply ignore the subject. Their stealerships rip off customers to replace the dash. I will spend every free time t name and shame Nissan. Lousy pirate company. I will ensure it is boycott in every socienty. Sad for them, I am a technical person and alot of people listen to me. If I say Nissan seats cause skin cancer; people will take it forgranted...

My Infinity FX 35 year 2005 with 65000 MI on it has severe dashboard bubbling.
It occurs when it had only 25-30000 on it. I've just discovered that's manufacturer's defect. It costs a significant out of pocket to replace the dashboard and should be recalled by Infinity.

My Infiniti 2004 is doing the same thing. Dealer refuses to repair it because just out of warranty. Everyone needs to call Infiniti Consumer Affairs at 800-662-6200. Maybe with enough calls, they will do a recall.

    wharrison4: Nissan is a fraud. you just keep name and shame them..they sold millions of defected cars. Nissan Cefiro(maxima) for example, has a defect in its air mass sensor making it one of the highest fuel wasters in the world...engine is so complicated that if you want to service any thing it wall take money and time to do it..just try to change at least fuel filter and see...Nissan has no consumer responsibility and should be boycotted.

How to fix a peeling dashboard in my 2003 yukon xl?


Peeling dashboard? I take it that its from the sun fading it and its now dryed up and peeling? Not a whole lot to do for this problem. One would be to buy a very inexpensive dash cover(kind of like a carpet for the dash) and the other would be replacing the dash(very expensive) They do sell dash repair kits, although I have never heard of much success with these paste mix kits.

Dahboard has bubbles


Recalls are only for issues items that are considered to be able to cause bodily harm / life threatening. A warped dashboard won't qualify. One way you can see if you can get this fixed for free is to look up the consumer protection laws and go from there

Bubbling of dashboard on 2004 Infiniti FX35


2004 Infiniti FX35 dash board may be mfg issue for Infiniti and you may look to them to solve the problem. I had the problem and they covered the dash part at 100%. I had to pay labor. Wound up at about $200. I had 84,000 miles on the car and outside warranty by over 15 months. Tells me they recognize an issue and will stand behind it. Be pleasant at dealer but insist they request support.
