Chevy ss Tahoe purchased new in 2007 has multiple cracks in the area surrounding the passenger air bag. It is my concern that if this is deployed there may be portions of this dash that will be deployed with the air bag. In addition the dash board has crack above the drivers steering column that has splintered into multiple cracks. In speaking with my insurance Agency I was informed that this is a common issue with this model of Chevy Tahoe 2007. I do not see any recalls, but this needs to be addressed immediately along with this recall of the airbags for this vehicle type.

The dashboard has two cracks one over the steering wheel and one over the passenger side air bag. I also have the light on and off saying (air bag service required) and the cruise control N has not been working neither for like 2 years all. It is a safety issue and concern when I travel with my family and this issue should be addressed immediately.

I bought this 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe brand new an this is the 2nd crack on my dash now it has a large crack next to the passenger airbag. I am afraid of this airbag being punctured in case of an accident. And a piece of the dash breaking off and stabbing the passenger. GM needs to be held accountable for this faulty dash materials that were used! this is a safety concern that needs to be repaired asap! these cracks happened when my wife was driving normally, this should not happen again.

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.

2007 Chevy Tahoe, dash has cracked in two places. One crack is in the left corner at the airbag (complete crack top to bottom). The second is at the left side over the steering wheel (within 1 inch being completely cracked from top to bottom). This is a defect in the materials not any incident that caused this to crack. There are hundreds of complaints and all dash cracks are basically in the same area. Very much a safety hazard especially if a crash occurred. Possibly could cause shattering of the dash pieces and cause injuries or possibly interfere with airbag deployment.

Passenger side airbag explosively inflated while driving approximately 30 miles per hour on an inner city street. No jarring or collision occurred directly prior to this incident. This appears unprovoked and poses a major safety risk to consumer. We have young children who could have been seriously injured in this incident. Thankfully they were not in the vehicle at the time and it was the passenger side which exploded and not the driver side. Any of theses scenarios would have (and did) easily endanger the driver and other individuals on or near the road when incident occurred. I immediately turned into a Chevrolet dealership and am currently awaiting word on what exactly caused the airbag inflation.

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.
