2007 Chevy Avalanche ltz started cracking less than two years after I bought it new. It now has 55,000 miles on it and I have taken very good care of it. The crack and hole next to the passenger airbag looks like it could project sharp plastic parts if airbag is deployed, causing injury or puncturing the airbag rendering it useless. Also on the drivers side, the cracks are huge over the instrument cluster and I'm afraid shrapnel could come loose and cause injury, the cracks started when the truck was stationary but gets worse when driving. The rattle is terribly annoying. I live in a suburb with good roads and only travel daily about 5 miles but take long trips on freeways once a year. I've never driven it on unimproved or dirt roads.

Dash cracked in approximately 2010. Dealership offered to repair it for $350. I did not have it repaired. Now it is cracked extensively like thousands of others owner's vehicles. If the airbag inflates, or an accident we're to occur, small pieces of the dash are likely to become projectiles.

The dashboard has cracked around the passanger side airbag. I worry that, if needed, the airbag will not deploy properly or the dash peices wi'll be propelled at the passanger causing them additional injury. This appears to be a common problem with this make/model. Here is a link to a facebook group with thousands of members with the same problem. Https://M.facebook.com/groups/251892298253/

I am having the same cracked dash issue every other owner is having with these GM models 2007-2014 GM trucks/SUVS. I just noticed the three cracks I have, so I am not sure when exactly they started (within the last few months).

The dash board on my 2007 Avalanche has several cracks and there are more appearing all the time. This has to be something the manufacture should fix for customers. I have never used any cleaning products other than a wet towel to clean my dash. I'm afraid this could affect my air bag deployment and cause injury.

problem #29

Dec 012008

Avalanche

  • 12,000 miles
With normal or limited use of vehicle, top dashboard cracked in large and significant areas, starting over the driver's wheel within 9 months of brand new, and then cracking at sides of top dash over and appurtenant to passenger air bag compartment, causing extremely loud and distracting rattling, banging and cracking sounds while driving. Full dash needs replacement or parts may fall into engine or into vehicle interior and concern that passenger air bag compartment may be affected because of crack next to that.

The dashboard has large cracks both in front of the instrument panel and around the airbag. This exact same problem has been reported by more than 4,000 GM truck owners. The cracking around the airbag are especially concerning, and likely pose a significant safety risk were the airbags to deploy. GM is apparently aware of this defect and fails to take responsibility for correcting the problem.

The interior door handles keep cutting people because the chrome covering is peeling up and the edges of it are very sharp. This happens when people are getting into or out of the car. I believe this is also a common problem with these vehicles. This vehicle only has about 60K miles on it. Date below is approximate.
