The dashboard is cracking in several places. One location is right above the instrument cluster. The other is around the passenger side airbag. This is a safety hazard as an airbag deployment could result in plastic breaking free and become flying projectiles within the cabin. Like many other vehicles with this same issue, the vehicle is well maintained, garage kept, and in good working order. The way that GM designed the dashboards and the materials used for the dashboards are the reason for this issue.

The passenger side front interior chrome door handle has begun peeling which results in a sharp edge on the door handle which results in minor cuts on human hands when a person pulls on the handle to open the door. This is the same issue experienced with 2007 Chevy Tahoe which resulted in NHTSA ea 10004. NHTSA ea 10004 resulted in Chevrolet extending warranty on this issue for 100,000 miles or 10 years. I contacted Chevrolet about this issue with 2010 Tahoe and they are not willing to extend the warranty on this model without NHTSA enforcement. The driver side front handle had the same problem in 2012. GM fixed that handle for free because car was under 36,000 mile / 3 year warranty. Online search reveals that other post- 2007 model Tahoe owners are having same issue. Since issue is with door handle, vehicle is stationary when door handle is used.

Tahoe

  • 60,000 miles
At 60,000 miles vehicle developed a cracked dash near passenger side airbag. Approximately 4,000 miles later a second crack has appeared forward of the gauge cluster and is growing. This is a safety concern if pieces of sharp plastic fly loose and cause injury.

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.

Tahoe

  • 42,000 miles
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.

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"
