    I replaced my accent with an echo, and when I cleaned it it looked great, but the now dash looks blotchy. I used meguiars natural shine a few days later and it looked good again, but it seems to have dried out and now looks blotchy again. None of the other surfaces I used this on looks blotchy. It's only the textured, black, plastic dash area in the front.

    What is it about my new car that dislikes being cleaned?

    Does the product say what surfaces not to use it on?

    Yes, it's used. 2003.

    "avoid splatter on painted and non-painted plastic panels.". Well, the dash feels more like plastic than vinyl. Crap. Now what?

    Clean it with some armor all. Classic Protectant is the one I'd use.
    I always use it to clean my Toyota's dash, and apart from looking very shiny for a couple of days it makes the dash look new again. Just make sure you don't get it on the windshield or it's quite hard to clean off.
