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 cracked in two places - above left side of passenger airbag and to left of steering wheel. I do no know the exact moment the cracks appeared. I know they were not present two months ago when I last cleaned the interior of my car. This car is kept in a garage or parked in the shade whenever it isn't on the road. I also use a sun screen when parked in open parking lots for brief periods. This did not occur because of uv degradation. If I have an accident I am concerned that the plastic will shatter, being one more thing to cause injury. I have attached a picture of the crack above my steering wheel. The dash is actually gray though it appears green.

I have two cracks, one located on the driver side dashboard and one on the passenger side above the airbag. Nothing has been done to produce such problem. I have also had to replace my heater core input valve. I have read that this has to do with the fact that the vehicle uses dex-cool. I am unsure of what to do with the fact that dex-cool has been found to eat away at hoses, O-rings, gaskets, and other parts of which dex-cool comes into contact with. I would also like to report that my oil pressure sending unit also needs to be replaced, it is no longer sending pressure readings to the dashboard. I have read that this is a very popular problem with many Chevrolet vehicle.

It was discovered that the dash was cracked in two spots while cleaning the vehicle. One of the cracks is located near the passenger side airbag while the other larger crack is in front of the driver. Nothing was done to cause the crack. My wife and I do not use armor all on the dash, we have not placed anything heavy on the dash, we do not place feet on the dash, we have not had any accidents that would cause the dash to crack. Our concern is pieces of the dash breaking off during a collision causing injury with air bag deployment. Another cause for concern is the cracking getting worse causing holes in the dash, exposing the electronic components under the dash.

Tahoe

Vehicle has significant and extensive cracking of the front dashboard, especially over the instrument console, due to an engineering design flaw in the 2007-2013 models. In the event of an accident, the dashboard will crack and splinter, causing potentially dangerous plastic shards to be directed at the occupants of the vehicle at time of impact, or possibly rupturing deployed airbags, rendering them useless.

Like thousands of other Chevy Tahoe, subruban and Silverado owners, I have significant and extensive cracking of the front dashboard, especially over the instrument console, due to an engineering design flaw in the 2007-2013 models. In the event of an accident, the dashboard will crack and splinter, causing plastic shards to be directed at the occupants of the vehicle at time of impact, possibly rupturing deployed airbags, rendering them useless.

I purchased this Tahoe in 2008 with almost 13000 miles on it. Before the warranty expired I had the dash board replaced because of the cracks in it. Now it has cracks all over which are worse then the original one had. There are a lot of sharp arears on it that cut easily when running a rag over it to clean it. I don't know what would be the result if it was involved in any kind of accident.

Dash cracks began appearing around 28,000 miles. Car now has 62,000 miles and four cracks. Originally, the cracks were not covered under the extended warranty. Now, these cracks are not just aesthetically displeasing, but concerns are raised about the cracks around the front airbag and safety issues with regard to airbag deployment. Cracks just became noticeable one day. The vehicle was always pampered, kept in a garage and protected by sunshades when occasionally parked outside. Upon complaining, GM offered to fix it for half of retail cost...$500 instead of $1100.

Dashboard cracks near airbag and over speedometer. I believe this could be a safety issue if airbags employ during accident with pieces of dashboard causing injury.

Dash board is cracking and has been. Called and went into dealer and always told no recall but can they could replace it for $1000 - 1500 dollars at my expense. I worry about the air bags with parts of the dash board falling into the dash.

When you engage the rear auto lift gate (ltz) the door goes 3/4 the way up and then begins to close on you literally traping you between the door and the rear opening. At first it would happen ever so often, now I must push the button again to stop the door from closing. This is a danger especially to children.
