The dashboard has cracked over the airbag and if the airbag deploys there will be shards of plastic propelled as shrapnel throughout the car. The crack appeared after using the defrosters on a cold day. There was no impact to the dashboard nor any weight placed on it. It was just a "crack" sound and it appeared.

The dash in my Tahoe recently cracked, & upon looking on the web, appears to be in the same place as many others' issue. I'm not sure when the crack happened (driving, parked, etc.), but it became visible to my attention the other day after some cold evenings (cold for san francisco bay area). I use a sunshade when possible. It is a regular driver. Image below is not my vehicle but almost an exact placement version for reference.

Tahoe

  • 50,000 miles
The dashboard of my Chevy Tahoe has become cracked in multiple places. One of the cracks goes from the windshield to the front of the dashboard. The cracks seem like a safety hazard specifically in the event of a car accident. In a car accident the cracks may impede the operation of the airbags or allow portions of the dashboard to more easily become projectiles which could cause injury to myself or passengers in my vehicle.

I noticed that the dash in my 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe ltz is cracked above the air bag on passenger side. I also have read where this is something that is happening to lot of Tahoe, Suburban and Yukon etc. This should be unacceptable for the amount of money I and many other people spend on these vehicles. Something should be done about this. My Tahoe stays garage kept out of the sun and this still happened.

Same crack in dash as 1000's of other owners of Tahoe. GM refuses to claim any responsibility and is asking $1200 for the replacement. This is a safety hazard as it is cracked at the air bag.

Dashboard is cracking on both sides where top vent meets corners. There was no incident to cause this, and the cracks have gotten progressively worse over the last few months. Makes horrific screeching noise when car is in motion. Makes me wonder if air bags would deploy correctly on passenger side.

The dashboard on my 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe has two severe cracks...one above the instrument panel and the other beside the passenger side airbag. It would seem that this crack could interfere with the effectiveness of the airbag. This is a known issue with these vehicles.

Dash has cracks on it. If the air bags deploy it could send shards flying. Compromise the air bag integrity.

Drivers side dash is cracking two places and spreading higher towards the instrument cluster. Happened between 8/26/16 8/28/16. Happened while I was driving on a city street. Above the center speaker in the middle of the dash the plastic clips that hold the two piece dash together also broke to. I'm worried that it'll get worse and possibly come loose. Between the two cracks the plastic is fairly loose. I've read a lot of reviews about this issue. From 2007 to 2010 Tahoe's are the worst.

2010 Tahoe lt - garage kept since bought in 2011 - dash has cracked at the top left of the passenger side air bag. This poses a significant risk if the passenger side airbag were to deploy. Looking for solutions to get this fixed. Vehicle was parked in the garage and was fine, the next morning the dash was cracked.
