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.

My dash has cracked twice on my 2010 Suburban. It cracked the first time approximately two years after I purchased the vehicle. Chevrolet replaced the dash under warranty. The dash cracked again approximately two years later. There appears to be some sort of design flaw with the dash. The dash does not have enough rigidity to accommodate the normal vibrations during the driving of the vehicle. The cracks in the dash are located next to the passenger side airbag. I am concerned that the dash will become shrapnel if the airbag ever deploys.

The dashboard has begun to crack and is in the area of the air bags. I am concerned that this has compromised my safety and that of my passenger if there were be a necessity for the airbags to be deployed. Shards of the brittle plastic could puncture the airbags or be projected through the cabin injuring passengers. This is my second Suburban purchased new and with as much as I have spent, I would expect it not to crumble apart in five years or that the company would be apologetic and eager to address the issue. Extremely dissatisfied and unwilling to spend $800 quoted be dealer to replace poor quality dash with the same part that will crumble like the first in four or five years. This will be my last Chevy purchase.

The dashboard is cracking in several spots. The main concern is that it is cracking at the corner of the airbag deployment area. If the airbag were to deploy it could be punctured or cut during deployment due to this cracked dashboard.

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • 83,429 miles
Upon exiting the vehicle I was sliced by the chrome coating peeling away from inner door handle. Finger was sliced about 3/4" long and bad enough to bleed. I then took notice of other inner door handles and found passenger side front inner door handle also having the chrome coating peeling from handle. Further research found this problem on earlier GM models.
