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.

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.

Dashboard cracked at left corner of airbag as well as cracking above the left side of the instrument panel. The crack over the airbag is what concerns me in that my airbag may not deploy correctly in the event of an accident or may cause significant harm from chards of plastic being sent at me...

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.

My 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe has multiple cracks in the dashboard above the instrument panel and airbag. This is a very serious safety issue with pieces braking off if the airbags were to go off in a accident.

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.

Dash around airbags is cracking and failing. It's a very common problem and GM refuses to rectify. Conceivably a piece of dash could break off during an airbag deployment.

I have had the dash crack in 4 different places; two on the driver side on each side of the steering column and two other around the airbag. The two around the airbag have made it so that there is free piece of plastic that is not secured by anything. I am afraid that if the air bag was to deploy then this piece would cause great bodily harm to anyone in the vehicle. The manufacturer knows of this issue and is not offering to replace the dash without some sort of compensation.

My vehicle have several severe cracks in the dashboard from poor quality materials. This defect is causing concern about the safety during a collision or airbag deployment from sharp plastic exposed due to the cracks in the dash cutting the airbag or shards of plastic becoming projectiles potentially causing injury to occupants.
