View Full Version : 500e dash is "tacky"...

...and by tacky I mean that after having the car for nearly a year, the dash top surface is tacky to the touch, especially in warm weather. Same for my friend's 500e. I have never used any solutions on it, so that can be ruled out. How sticky is it, you might ask...well if you tried to rub it with a paper towel, it will shred the towel and leave bits of paper stuck to the dash. Seems the plastic is outgassing something weird that is making the plastic soft. Anyone else experience this? Is this a 500e-specific issue?

I have read of this on all models and some report it being worse than others. Not e specific and it seems to span a couple model years as well.
