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.

Crack in the dash on drivers side. Interior door handles have caused cuts to hands. Service battery charging system light continues to come on. I have had the car serviced & mechanics can not locate the issue. Seems to be an electrical malfunction.

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.

Dashboard cracks in all GM vehicles near the passenger airbag. Not sure if it affects the airbag but will definitely send sharp plastic parts flying if airbag is needed.

At 56000 I began to notice sally cracks to the passenger side dash on the corner of the housing for the passenger airbag. I took it to the dealership but this was not a covered item in my warranty. Shortly after, the cracks have extended and are approximately 2-3 inches in length. Also a crack above the instrument cluster began and has traveled to the front of the dash. The concern and immediate danger is that if the air bags were to deploy, the excerpted force would either send shrapnel from the dashboard in to the personnel in the vehicle causing a greater risk of serious traumatic injury or possibly death. Additionally it is possible that the sharp edges created by the cracks could potentially pierce the airbag preventing it from fully deploying as intended and thus rendering it in affective and not adhering to safety standards, again resulting in possible loss of life or sever traumatic injury.

Dash has cracked in two separate areas. One above the driver side instrument panel and one above the passenger side airbag. I called two different Chevrolet dealerships on two separate occasions, neither of which willing to correct or report to GM. Entire repair would be at owner expense. Dash has had very little sunlight exposure.

Dash board crack. The crack appears to have compromised the dashboard all the way to the passenger-side airbag and a much larger crack above the instrument panel. If something were to happen...I was in a wreck, and the airbag were to deploy...there's shards of dash going through the cab. I am the original owner on this 2007 Tahoe.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. The contact stated that while driving 50 mph, the contact blacked out and crashed into the guardrail. The air bags failed to deploy. The contact sustained head injuries that required medical attention. A police report was filed. On another occasions, while making a left turn at 15 mph, the contact crashed into another vehicle. The air bags failed to deploy. A police report was filed and there were no injuries reported. The contact also stated that there were two large cracks in the dashboard and a third crack developed as a result of the first crash. The vehicle was taken to a dealer however, the diagnosis was unknown. The vehicle was repaired after both failures. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 120,000.

The plastic dashbord has cracks on the edge of the airbag unit and over the top of the speedometer unit. There is also major cracks on 30 to 40 percent of the flat portion of the dash.these cracks are sharp and severe. The cracking started and has eventually gotten worse over time to the point of a safety concern. If the airbag is deployed there is great risk that the dash board may come apart and kill or injure the passenger and others in the vehicle. I have read hundreds of complaints on the internet in regards to this safety issue. Please investigate to find out if a repair or recall is needed. As an engineer I believe GM should make the repair.

I have cracks in my dashboard at the instrument panel and at the passenger air bag. I believe that this is from lack of quality as the truck has been kept in a garage. I believe it's a safety issue and needs to be addressed and recalled by GM especially considering the amount of people having the same issue.

The passenger side air bag has a big crack in the dash right above the air bag. This concerns me as I have 4 children and am scared that this may deploy while one of them is in the front seat. I see that there are many complaints on this same issue. I also have an issue with the asb light and stabilitrak lights where they are both on in the driver display dash. Every once in a while they will reset, but then in a day or so these error messages come back on. I also noticed that there are many complaints on this issue as well. Please GM do a recall on these issues!!

Dash cracked in several places. This is a very common defect in GM Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Avalanche. At this point the main concern is the fact that the high majority of cracks on all affected dashes are against/next to passanger air bag. If deployed dash fragments will become projectiles. As times goes on several other cracks have appeared and at this time GM has refused to address
