I also get the sqeaking noise from the rear seat area that some are complaining about. That noise is even more annoying to me than the dash noise because it is constant. I'll try some of the suggestions given here and report back if I haven't gone crazy before then.
Sorry to hear about this Jet. I had the same thing on my highlander, except an extremely annoying tapping sound. I had it fixed but every now and then, I hear it under certain conditions.
W.r.t. tearing the dash apart, I had to have the A/C evaporator changed and they had to tear mine to bear bones. The service manager assured me that they in fact put MORE padding and tape on the edges and clips to prevent squeaks and rattles than what comes from factory. In fact, the dash was whisper quiet after their work. BUT, that was this dealer. Not sure that all dealers take the same sort of care.
Hope you get this fixed. Squeaks and rattles really bother me. I am the kind of owner that will turn off the music while driving and ask my wife or son "did you hear that pop/squeak/noise? Where is it coming from...try to pin point it". The noises in the car don't bother them, but when I do that, it drives them nuts!
Do you have the leather interior? I was getting squeaking from the split rear seat backs rubbing against the center arm rest. You can tell if that's it by dropping the arm rest down.
I tried using leather conditioner on the surfaces, and it improved, but didn't eliminate the squeaks. I then followed pare_John's suggestion. I bought some adhesive backed felt and applied it to each of the surfaces of the seat backs's that face the arm rest. Fixed it completely.
