Bubbling dash / Vinyl Sinkholes

Symptoms:
Uneven vinyl/rubber portion of the passenger side dashboard, right below passenger airbag. Clearly visible both in daylight and even with the night reading lights, these "sinkholes" in the soft portion of the dashboard are a design flaw.
The Fix:
Replacement dashboard, covered under warranty. Dashboards produced and factory-installed after the recall are made of solid formed vinyl/foam, which do not have these hollow sinkholes. The only piece to be replaced under warranty is the general dash piece (gauge cluster, clock pod, knee bumps, glove box, etc. not included)

Take it in, they will fix it. As long as the part is ordered before you warranty goes out you will be fine. I've had to replace my bubbling dash TWICE>

elmiserable will become famous soon enough
I spend the same, I took it to the dealer and they told me, I used some chemicals, and that it voided my warranty. I'll wait a few weeks, I'll take off the ArmorAll very well and take it to another dealer. that's all.

Though it's been three years since anyone added to this thread, I thought I should link to a related thread I recently started on here, asking for opinions on how to fix this issue, out of warranty. Can bubbles in the soft part of the dash be glued, (by injecting an adhesive into the bubbles via syringe) then rolled out and re-flattened? Or must an entire new dash be ordered? (Yikes!) Looking for a fix that will look nice, yet be affordable. Here's the link to the other thread:

Need ideas on how to fix or replace a bubbling dash
