Has anyone found an economical way to address this? I have been advised by the dealer that this is a couple thousand dollar project.

Check your local auto upholstery shops. They can usually repair stuff like that at a lower price point. Sometimes can re-glue it back on or do spot repairs. Whereas the only way a dealership can fix is a complete replacement at MSRP parts and labor rates.

However, as the owner previous and current European cars with leather dashes, that puckering of the material is common. Leather simply shrinks, sometimes more than others. Actually pretty happy my Rebel has vinyl dash instead.

Also remember auto upholster shops are like PDR shops, some are better than others, make sure you get a few opinions/quotes. I would check your local yelp and see who has the most and highest reviews.
