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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2010 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

Driver's side dashboard crack over instrument cluster. No accident, original owner, crack just occurred and pieces have fallen into instrument panel. Crack is running vertical from seam in front of driver's windshield up to driver's instrument panel area where steering wheel is located.

The dashboard developed a crack approx 8 inches long on the drivers side behind steering column. This happened when the heat was turned on to defrost window. This is dangerous because if the airbag should deploy pieces of the dash could be sent flying into the passenger compartment and cause injuries. GM does not want to fix the problem.

The dashboard has severe long cracks that run into where the airbag would deploy. This is clearly a defect and 1000's have reported same issue. The edges are very sharp. The vehicle is <4 years old and GM will not replace. Concern is the dash could cut the airbag as it passes by the sharp edges or sharp edges could severely cut driver or passenger as airbag pushed broken dash into passenger or driver.

Two large cracks appeared in my dash recently - no accident, no special cleaning solution, nothing. One crack is over the control console near the driver side and the other is around the passenger airbag. My concern is that the crack surrounding the passenger airbag could possibly hinder the airbag from working properly or could possibly eject shards of hard plastic into my passengers if the airbag did deploy. GM should recall and replace all these dashes to prevent injury/death!

My dash on my Suburban is cracked around the passenger airbag. I feel this issue is a safety hazard if the airbag comes out it may throw plastic pieces everywhere.

My dashboard at my passenger airbag and at my gauge cluster have severe cracks. I'm afraid my passenger airbag will not deploy and my gauges will fall deep inside the dash. GM is aware of the problem, but will not recall for fix. This is a serious concern.
