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.

Purchased in 2014, four separate cracks have appeared in the dash board, two on driver side and two on the passenger sides. The larges crack is on the driver's side, directly about the speedometer and the other is at the edge of the driver's side windshield. The passenger side cracks is where the airbag is installed.

The dashboard on the passenger side next to the airbag has cracked and appears to be separating. This defect in the dashboard is directly in contact with the airbag deployment location for the front passenger.

My dash on my 2012 Suburban started cracking over the passenger airbag a little over a year ago. Within the past month I have noticed 2 more cracks in my dash, one behind my steering wheel on the left side of the dash and the other is to the right of the steering wheel on the dash. I have called the local dealership and questioned if a recall has been issued for this defect since there are hundreds to thousands of other people with the same issue. I don't feel that we should be responsible for replacing the dash board cover and shelling out over $900. Especially when Chevrolet is aware that multiple models are having the same exact issue. It's clearly a defect..

Dashboard has cracked in multiple places and I'm concerned this may affect safety features such as airbags. Also have the same issue (but much worse) in my Chevrolet Avalanche. These dashboards are cheap and flimsy.
