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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Dashboard is cracked in multiple places and GM refuses to replace it. One major crack if from the airbag cover forward. I am in fear of the airbag deploying and pieces of plastic dash flying all over the place. I am one of thousands who have these cracks but GM is refusing to replace them.

Driving along one day at 45 mph and the dashboard just cracked. Mine has cracked over the instrument panel. I have a friend who has the same crack as well as a crack over the air bag on the passenger side. The cracked dash is a known problem that needs to be corrected, I am also concerned what may happen if the air bag goes off with what is obviously a brittle dash.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe. The contact stated that the dashboard was cracked at the top driver side next to the air bag. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The contact stated that there was a petition for a recall. The manufacturer was not notified. The approximate failure mileage was 72,000.

My dash board is cracked over the instrument cluster, and around the passenger air bag. The instrument panel crack appeared right at 42,000 miles, and the passenger air bag crack happened at 51,000 miles. My Chevy dealer says it is "cosmetic" so they will not cover any of the repairs, even though I am still under the "certified pre-owned" warranty. But it's going to be more than cosmetic if that air bag ever goes off. It is going to send plastic shrapnel every where. The dealer quoted me $900 to replace the dash, and says they would be putting the same dash back in, so it would more than likely just crack again. I am on a face book page (GM Yukon and Tahoe cracked dash) with 576 members that have the exact same problem. Something needs to be done about this.

  • 44,000 miles
The passenger door handle broke from the screw housing and not the handle itself. Chevy's response: Pull too hard on door handle, $ 200 repair cost to replace handle. The dashboard in front of the steering wheel started cracking and running towards the steering wheel. Chevy's response: Some time the heat will do that. $ 950 repair cost for new dashboard. My Tahoe is in top shape, washed twice a week inside and out and is garaged" I don't know why the simple things are so cheap"
