My 1999 Olds Alero has a \"wrinkly forehead\"...the covering on the top of the dash has come unattached and has shriveled. I have been told the entire dash will need to be replaced at the tune of $500 minimum. Have checked for recalls to no avail. It seems other Alero owners have the same problem. Have you heard of this problem and do you have any advice?
