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.

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.

I purchased brand new Chevrolet Tahoe in 2010, the vehicle has less than 75,000 miles and has developed a crack in the dashboard. This vehicle has been taken care of since purchase, so very upset that the dashboard has cracked. It started cracking a year after having warranty work done ( dash had to be removed to replace onstar system).

Takata recall, the dashboard is cracking and shattering into small pieces and when you use the defrost the little pieces of debris start flying everywhere including the drivers face. And it's very annoying and distracting. Thanks for any help.

Large cracks on driver and passengers sides of the front dash. Vehicle always garage kept and taken care of. Why is this not a recall? I have read numerous complaints regarding the same problem.

I have two big cracks in my dashboard. These cracks are not from lack of maintenance or from sun-damage. This is from faulty product installed by GMC/Chevrolet. I know of at least 3 other vehicles at my company that have the same issue and in the same spot. You can also pull story after story up online about this same issue and GM refuses to put a recall out for their faulty product. With the location of the cracks which are next to the airbags it is my fear that if there is an accident and the airbag deploys that it will cause shrapenal to fly abouth the vehicle. This is not only a flaw of GM but could cause serious damage to a passenger of the vehicle.
