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.

Dashboard is cracked all over with a large crack next to the passenger side airbag. There is now a recall on the airbags which is another example of the cheap material Chevrolet put into there vehicle. If airbags do deploy, portions of those cheap plastic dashboards can be deadly. General Motors, you are on notice. You have lost a loyal customer for life.

When I began my Monday morning, it was just as any other Kentucky Monday until I unlocked my baby (2007 Chevy Tahoe ltz) and noticed a very large crack that appeared overnight!! not only is the crack above my instrument panel but on both sides of my passenger airbag! I am beyond sick. I have never had an issue like this with any other Chevy's I had. As a matter of fact, the great track record of my other Chevy is why I placed confidence when purchasing this, much more expensive model! I reached out, in person to my local Chevy dealer, and with leg propped up, tired and hot look on his face I was informed it was not their problem, the vehicle was over 5 years old. Asking to speak to the service manager seemed to really inconvenience this guy, so after a closed door meeting between Mr. Too happy to be here and the service manager, I got a very "rehearsed" spill about how this is an old vehicle and unless GMC tells them to fix it, they aren't going to fix it! even though he acknowledged this was a common problem. (fyi I never lost my cool and was hoping the cordial, business manner I projected would have been reciprocated.....wrong!) this "old vehicle" has been hand washed, garage kept and kid free since it's original purchase, and maintained well above the manufactured recommendations I'm sure. After reading a 135 page forum of people who have had the same issue as I, I have an overwhelming feeling of being let down by the brand that I have purchased since my first car, a 1986 Chevy spectrum.I feel this is a safety hazard if I or a loved one is ever in an accident as the dashboard cracks into hundreds of pieces of flying shrapnel!how can this not be a safety concern" why can't they replace it when they replace the passenger air bag component they are currently looking into replacing? we have been trolling our Chevy dealer for a new truck for my son or are we"

Dashboard has several very bad cracks that continue to get worse. The cracks are extending to the passenger airbag. I fear if an accident occurs the airbag may not work properly. This is not something that should be happening for many safety reasons.

Dashboard has severely cracked around the passenger side air bag, among other areas. Deployment of the airbag could cause sharp shards of plastic to become projectiles possibly causing injury or death.

My impeccably maintained SUV has multiple cracks in the dash that I believe if the air bags deploy will cash serious bodily harm. I am continually finding pieces on the dash on my floorboard near the gas pedals on the drivers side and far forward on the passenger side. And recently with the cracks getting worse I have noticed the broken pieces are starting to flap around with the forced air coming through the vents.

I have a 2007 Tahoe that has developed several cracks in the dash. One above the steering wheel and another at the passenger side air bag. I am concerned that should the passenger airbag deploy, the dash pieces will become shrapnel, causing avoidable injuries. I have researched this and found it to be disturbingly common for these vehicles. This vehicle is garage kept and meticulously cared for. Will GM be made to stand behind the safety of their vehicles?

Cracked dashboard in multiple places. This is a well known problem that has been documented. I reached out to Chevy and they refused to replace. My biggest concern is an air bag defect because of a big crack near the air bag.

Dash cracked in what appears to be very common spots, just above instrument panel, and in the corner nearest the top left of the passenger airbag cover. This could be very dangerous in an accident, and is a known defect that Chevy is choosing to ignore.

Hi, I own a 2007 Chevrolet ls Tahoe and my concern is that my front dash has developed a crack about 8" on the left side of the instrumentation cluster, the giant crack has started to appear to be gaping open, and it's starting to sag, and has also cracked on the above the top driver side dash air bag, , at the top center dash area just above the passenger right side air bag, but it's 2 individual cracks. I always have parked most of the majority of the time in my garage or I try to find shaded areas to park.

"takata recall" I own a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe the dashboard is severely cracked. I am concern that a piece might break and cause damage to the airbag. I have attempted to get this corrected through GM with no resolve. I have checked and found this is a common occurrence on this year model.

2007 Tahoe with 100K miles. Dashboard has been cracked since before 100K and chrome peeling from door handles causing occasional cuts to hands when opening doors. Dealer has refused to do anything and both are expensive repairs. Don't plan to buy another GM product - they don't stand behind their products.

Dashboard is cracked in three locations. 1st and 2nd: Over passenger side airbag from upper corners of the airbag to the air-vent panel 3rd: Approximately 8 inches along the top of the driver instrument panel to the air-vent panel. Additional separation between panels is created during temperature changes or running the heater in cold weather. Have had two dealerships tell me it is a normal, known, and reoccurring problem with the body-style but offered to replace it for over $1,000.
