OK not my car but my girlfriends '99 Accent. She went out to her car today after work and noticed a big crack right down the middle from the window to the center vents!!! WTF!!!! Must be from the heat here in Hawaii??
Figures that the 5/60 warr. ended this past July. :dead:
Anyone else have this happen.

LOLOL dude this happens to every 98-99 accent eventually when they're in hot climates mine is cracked already for like a year, even bought new one and happened again, So i said screw it and fiberglassed the hole damn thing and then put that gray speaker box material (the like really short carpety stuff) no more ugly crack and looks pretty nice plus kills reflection from sun off the dashboard.

Nice i wish we had Accents like that in the UK. i am also think that your alloys look like Tib wheels????

And getting back to the subject :) i think that is a heat thing with the dash as i have never heard or seen an accent with a cracked dash.

I bought my 1999 Accent about 2 years ago, and it is my first car. About 3 months after I bought it, my dash cracked as well, I live in the Atlanta suburbs, where we are known for some heat. Another reason is that until my parents got divorced, and I moved in with my dad, my accent was parked out side, because my moms car and my dad's motorcycle got the garage. But now Its in the garage every night, and I have bought one of the windsheld heat reflector things. I still havew not fixed the dash, and don't know if I should get a new one or what I can do to fix it. I have a tan interior if anyone has a dash they might want to sell. I don't know if I'll bother, because as a graduation gift for myself I might just buy me an 04 Accent GT or a Elantra GT.

Same thing happens here in Oz. The ex had an X3 with a cracked dash. Probably why they went to hard plastic with the LC's
