    I bought my Santa fe new in 2002 and had the full treatment - tinting,
    paint treatment, interior protection (by Ming Australia).
    I noticed that the black dome in the centre of the dash that covers the
    vents appeared a little soft and sticky but thought it was just the
    Now the dome is melting. If you touch it you leave finger prints in
    the plastic.
    Has anyone else had this problem?
    I have only attempted to was it once with just water and this just
    smeared the tacky plastic.

    This is black plastic that is melting. Have you ever seen that? I
    wiped the dust off it with a wet cloth and left scores through the
    sticky melting plastic.

    You have a 5 year warrantee on Hyundai's so nip it into a dealer and see
    what he says.

    I think that's the paint. That sounds similar to what I was referring.
