Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

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.

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.

Dash pad has cracked badly and rattles terribly on bumpy roads. This problem could release shards of plastic at the occupants in the event of air bag deployment.

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.

The dashboard has cracked in the top left corner just above the passenger side air bag. This exact same crack in the exact same location has also occurred on my 2007 GMC Yukon denali which I will file separately.

  • 30,000 miles
Dash cracked with 3 large cracks at 30,000 miles and chrome trim on door handles also peeled with sharp edges. Both were replaced by dealer and cracked again with < 10,000 additional miles GM refused to replace unless I paid 1/2 the cost of $1200 so never got fixed. This has happened to thousands of others and GM should be responsible for defects. I worked for GM and someone told me they were using too much torque when the dashes were installed but GM will not accept responsibility. I feel it is a safety issue as far as the airbags might go off accidentally while driving or not in the event of an accident!

problem #14

Avalanche

  • 72,000 miles
Vehicle has been and is driven under normal conditions and is accident free. Cracks to dash above instrument panel and by passenger airbag. It's an obvious manufacture defect, other GM owners are filing complaints with the same issue. My concern is the crack may inflict unnecessary injury or further injury to the passager in the event the airbag deploys. I'm hoping those responsible for insuring this defect does not cause harm to a passage takes a proactive stance and investigates this issue. Thanks - don mathis
