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.

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

About couple months ago we notice about an 8 inch long crack on the dashboard above the cluster driver side. And I first thought it had to be sun damage. So pretty bum about it. Then recently about a week ago watching the local news on tv. There was a similar issue about crack dashboards. And then checking on this website there's multiple very identical issues. So now in hope there's a recall coming soon. And also notice the inside door handles the chrome is coming apart leaving really sharp edges. So I notice there's similar complaints in regards to this door handles.

The dashboard on the passenger side around the air bag has cracked significantly and the area on either side of the air bag cover are bowing up. It appears that where is a significant risk of the dashboard fragmenting if the air bag were to be deployed.

I have two cracks in my dashboard. One is huge over the drivers side control cluster and the second, I believe, poses a big safety concern. The second crack is at the corner of the passenger airbag. I'm concerned that the airbag will not deploy with this defect and if it does the sharp edges/shards of the dash will either injure the passenger and/or others in the car, or rip the airbag making it useless. Airbags are a legal requirement. I have been on many forums and pages regarding the Chevy Tahoe and there are hundreds of people with this very same problem. I really believe GM/Chevy should order a recall. I also have a minor claim about the rubber on the steering wheel and the paint on the stereo/climate control buttons. All of which is peeling off. I have also see hundreds of writings about this problem. We have already had to replace the steering wheel and stereo/climate control. And the problem persisted on the new items. I paid way to much for the vehicle to be doing this. I also have no intentions of getting a new car; however, as they problem persist, especially the safety issues. I just may be forced to.
