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.

The dash board has a crack right next to the air bag also above the gauges. My worry is if the air bag goes off the plastic from the dash will pop up and put a hole in the air bag. Which will then deflate and no serve its purpose. Or that part of the dash board will break off from the impact of the air bag and will hurt someone in the vehicle. Please contact. Me for photos it is saying they are too large to upload. Thank you

The dashboard has two cracks one over the steering wheel and one over the passenger side air bag. I also have the light on and off saying (air bag service required) and the cruise control N has not been working neither for like 2 years all. It is a safety issue and concern when I travel with my family and this issue should be addressed immediately.

My dash has cracked in 2 spots, it is obvious this is a manufacturer defect. My biggest concern is that the one crack that leads to the air bag cover...that could potentially open hitting my son in the face causing bodily harm. When I spoke to the dealership (bryan Chevrolet) for replacement...I was informed that this was a common problem and would not be covered by my warranty. However, if I wanted replaced it would be expensive ($1000). Bottom line, I got nowhere with them, now that one crack has grown to two cracks...and the other crack is on the left corner of the dash above the instrument cluster. I find it appalling that so many complaints have been lodged on various websites and still GM refuses to acknowledge and much less replace all these defective dashboards. I agree that there should be a class action law suit filed to make all affected parties whole in a retroactive manner. The gross amount of complaints clearly indicate that his not a frivolous complaint and GM should be held accountable.

I have had this vehicle just over 30 days and the dash was fine when I purchased it. I started my vehicle the next morning and when I went out the dash was cracked. It has since gotten 10X worse than that and has actually gotten the point where pieces are missing from the dash.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. The contact stated that the passenger side dashboard developed multiple cracks extending from the corner where the air bag was positioned. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the dashboard needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 21,000.

About couple months ago we notice about an 8 inch long crack on the dashboard above the cluster driver side. And I first thought it had to be sun damage. So pretty bum about it. Then recently about a week ago watching the local news on tv. There was a similar issue about crack dashboards. And then checking on this website there's multiple very identical issues. So now in hope there's a recall coming soon. And also notice the inside door handles the chrome is coming apart leaving really sharp edges. So I notice there's similar complaints in regards to this door handles.

Dashboard cracked at left corner of airbag as well as cracking above the left side of the instrument panel. The crack over the airbag is what concerns me in that my airbag may not deploy correctly in the event of an accident or may cause significant harm from chards of plastic being sent at me...

The dashboard on the passenger side around the air bag has cracked significantly and the area on either side of the air bag cover are bowing up. It appears that where is a significant risk of the dashboard fragmenting if the air bag were to be deployed.

My 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe has multiple cracks in the dashboard above the instrument panel and airbag. This is a very serious safety issue with pieces braking off if the airbags were to go off in a accident.

I have two cracks in my dashboard. One is huge over the drivers side control cluster and the second, I believe, poses a big safety concern. The second crack is at the corner of the passenger airbag. I'm concerned that the airbag will not deploy with this defect and if it does the sharp edges/shards of the dash will either injure the passenger and/or others in the car, or rip the airbag making it useless. Airbags are a legal requirement. I have been on many forums and pages regarding the Chevy Tahoe and there are hundreds of people with this very same problem. I really believe GM/Chevy should order a recall. I also have a minor claim about the rubber on the steering wheel and the paint on the stereo/climate control buttons. All of which is peeling off. I have also see hundreds of writings about this problem. We have already had to replace the steering wheel and stereo/climate control. And the problem persisted on the new items. I paid way to much for the vehicle to be doing this. I also have no intentions of getting a new car; however, as they problem persist, especially the safety issues. I just may be forced to.
