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.

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.

Takata recall the dash of my 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe is cracked severely, if the airbag does deploy the whole dash will probably deploy with it. This is a serious hazard.

Takata recall - I would prefer to have my passenger air bag disabled until repair parts are available because I have survived frontal collision with seat belt use but I don't think my odds are as good with shrapnel flying at my head at 200 mph from a defective takata inflator. My dealer would not disconnect the pressure switch to the passenger air bag.

Takata recall / GM recall 49152. My wife & I received the aforementioned recall from GM. In the body of the recall letter it states that takata had decided our passenger side airbag is defective. GM states they will issue a recall unless the can prove the airbags are not defective. So, I called GM to see what is the time frame to complete this investigation. GM could not provide me with any information on how long it would be for GM to finish it's investigation. In fact GM didn't even indicate they have started yet. This is unacceptable to me as a consumer. Now I'm left with a car I purchased new from GM and am not able to use the vehicle for it's intended purpose. One has to assume that GM did their due diligence when purchasing the airbags and now that a recall has been issued by the manufacturer that decision is not good enough for GM. It's obvious to me the longer it takes for GM to prove the recall is not warranted the fewer recalled vehicles will be on the road which I have no doubt will be a benefit to GM but certainly not to the consumer. The simple question "how long will GM's investigation to prove to NHTSA's safitsfaction the recall is not needed take?". this leaves the consumer in a situation with no idea of when a resolution to the problem will come.

Cracked dash over the instrument panel. Vehicle kept in immaculate condition but it appears that the heating /cooling cycle along with sub-par material and design may be creating a huge problem for a great many of Tahoe owners. The initial crack was noticed during the summer months in northern Illinois and over a period of two-three weeks it progressed from the seam between the two dash panels towards the drivers position. This vehicle has not been wreck, abused, or taken off road. Unknown exactly when or what caused the dash to start cracking but it seems to be an ongoing problem which can cause a safety issue along with a decreased value of these vehicles due to poor quality. Love the truck but the quality and customer support are very poor.

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

My truck is selected for recall.. but letter says it's safe to drive. But the letter also explains what can happens if the air bags inflator may rupture during deployment causing serious or fatal injuries. Also the inflator can degrade over time, especially after long term exposure in hot and humid regions.. well it's summer time and that can happen if I have an accident.. need my truck taken asap..
