I am making a complaint on 2007 Tahoe. I have had the Tahoe since 2010 and I have had problems with the dash ever since. I have had a replacement dash installed and two years later it cracked again. This time it is much worse. I have cracks all over and even cracks that butt up to the airbag box. I think this is not safe since pieces of the dash could fly off if the airbag is deployed and could seriously cause more damage to the driver and passenger. Also, the crack could interfere with the way that the airbag comes out of the box. This could cause improper inflation or even a rip in the airbag. I think that this part should be recalled since thousands of Chevy people are having the same problem. I have seen many pictures of peoples dashes that have the same concerns. Please review these cases and understand that this simple cosmetic piece could have major affects.

The dashboard has cracked in several places and is becoming a safety issue as well as being an annoyance (excessive rattling) and aesthetic issue. The plastic dashboard is becoming loose and unstable. We are finding this is a common issue with 2007 Tahoe. GM does not appear to be concerned with this issue and has failed to issue a recall. We are concerned in the event of an airbag deployment, the cracked dash will break away and cause plastic shrapnel, impaling the driver and or passenger/S in the vehicle. This has certainly created a safety concern!

This dash crack on 2007 Chevy Tahoe seems to be common in this years SUV's and trucks. As seen on forums/youtube concerning this dash crack, it could be possible that in a collision, the cracked plastic dash can act as shrapnel when airbags deploy. Please run some tests on this as I have little ones and wouldn't want them in harms way.

My exterior door handles are breaking off. I have had all four replaced and now have two that have broken again. They are made of cheap plastic and held on the door with plastic that just breaks loose when pulled on. Also the plastic coating on the interior door handles is peeling off causing sharp edges. I am so disappointed in this GM product. This is the most expensive vehicle that I have ever purchased and by far the poorest quality. My dash is also cracked in multpile places starting with the left corner of the passenger air bag and now above the instrument panel.

I noticed a small crack in my dash along the passenger side airbag at about 40,000 miles. The dash is now cracked in 5 to 6 different places above the steering wheel. Very frustrating to pay $50,000 for such poor quality. My Tahoe has always been garage kept. I am worried that my front passenger side air bag is affected by this and that if it does deploy in the event of an accident that all the cracked pieces of hard plastic from the dash will be hazardous. Also when driving you can hear the loud rattles from the dash.

The dashboard has cracked in two places. One crack is in the drives side and another crack is in the area near the passenger side airbag. I question whether the crack is going to have an impact on the performance of the airbag and/or potentially cause an issue or injury if the airbag if ever deployed.

Hi to whom it may concern, I'm contacting you guys in concerns of a cracked dashboard that initially started around my airbag area and later on continued cracking over my instrument panel. In do time I really think my dash will have holes in it allowing one to see all of my electrical parts and whatsoever. This is going to impose a vehichle safety issue do to if god forbid one gets into an accident of any type and da airbag deploys, all of that sharp plastic will be embedded into our faces, etc. GM needs to issue an recall because this is not considered a normal wear and tear issue being that what activity takes place on my dashboards!

1. lift gate failed and hurt my arm on or about Jan 1 2014. I need repaired asap! 2. dashboard cracked above steering column and cracked by air bag passenger side. I need repaired asap. GM refused to acknowledge thousands of consumers having the same effects to their dashboard. 3. timing chain went off time and bent a cylinder which caused serious damage 9/2014 cost of damages at approximate $4500 GM refused to acknowledge deficiencies. I paid out of pocket the $4500 with no assistance. I also paid $250 for estimates at the GM dealer in kingston mass. They refused to help and give assistance on any of these 3 major safety problems after submitting the dealer bona fide report.

All of sudden my dash on passager side, over air bag show a crack, and as the time went by is cracking even more. I just went to Chevrolet yesterday, to see what could be done, and the first thing I heard was that was very commom, but since I'm out of warranty, that should cost around $ 1300 to be replaced. Since is common, and I was looking on line, they should replace at their cost not ours.

I want to add to the known issue with the cracked dashboards on this series of GM trucks. I have a crack just above the passenger side airbag. The second crack is above the gauge panel on the drivers side. My concern is the crack on the passenger side. I fear that if in a crash, the plastic on the dash will fragment and send sharp pieces flying. This is a safety issue.
