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.

The contact owns a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban. The contact stated that the passenger side of the dashboard fractured. The contact was concerned that the front passenger side air bag would deploy violently. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the dashboard needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 38,000.

Vehicle dash crached while driving, making quite a loud noise like a pop. Then the dash cracked across the right side. Previously owned 2008 Suburban with a lot more cracking than this one but this one just started. The 2008 Suburban actually broke into chips and would blow across a persons face while driving. I repaired it through a paint and body shop at cost of nearly $1,350 dollars. These dash problems are in most of Suburban and Tahoe and a very serious danger to people driving these vehicles and G.M. has not stepped up and recalled/repaired them. When someone gets a serious injury or lose an eye then maybe they will repair them but this will not return an eye, arm, leg or life due to this not repairing them.

The dashboard near the passenger side airbag has split/cracked. I am concerned that it could comprise the deployment of the airbag in an accident given the location of the crack. The vehicle was less then 2 years old when the cracking began, but Chevrolet would not investigate the integrity of the airbag without me incurring a cost due to being slightly past the 36K mile warranty. Upon some simple internet searching, it seems this is cracking is a common occurrence for owners of these trucks. But, no one seems to know if it will compromise the airbag deployment. I know I would prefer to not find that out in an accident and believe Chevrolet should take accountability.

The left driver's side exterior mirror is restricted in its upward movement and will not move high enough to enable safe viewing of the blind side on the left of the car. The mirror is obstructed by the frame of the mirror assembly so it won't pivot into the frame to give a higher view.
