Vehicle dash is cracked in several locations including around the passenger airbag. This has become a common issue with this vehicle platform including the GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, GMC Sierra, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Suburban, and Chevy Silverado all within the 2007-2013 model years. There are numerous discussions threads posted online as well as social groups in which owners are informing the rest of the community of their similar problems. The main concern is that in the event of a crash, the cracked dashboard could fragment as the airbag is deployed causing projectiles within the vehicle cabin. The safety concern as well as material defect should be investigated. There is no excuse as to why these dashboards are cracking.

Noticed large cracked on dash board above instrument cluster and around airbag. Due to the location of crack around passenger side air bag, a recall should be issued and dash should be replaced.

2011 Chevy Tahoe dash crack, 6/19/16, no trauma, parked in car port, 64K miles. Once researched found this to be a frequent issue with no solution from GM/Chevy. Requesting recall for defective dash material, risk of airbag deployment if continues to crack.

The dash in my vehicle cracked significantly last week as I was making a right hand turn, GM indicated that there has not been a recall but after reading into it, this issue seems to be quite prevalent. This needs to be addressed.

Dash on 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe has cracked on the passenger side next to the airbag panel. Dash has also cracked on the driver side above the instrument panel cluster. Concern is that in a car accident where the air bags deploy the dash board may break apart and become shrapnel causing additional injury, permanent disability, or death to the passenger.

Takata recall on cracked dashboard: 2011 Chevy Tahoe, 50K when cracks were noticed. Dashboard cracked in three places: Along side the airbag on passenger side and over the steering wheel of driver side. My concerns is the endangerment from flying shards from the defective cracked dashboard. I am the first and only owner of this vehicle since day one, with normal dailing commute (work, home etc), and well maintain.

The dash just recently cracked over the steering wheel. This vehicle had been garaged, I use window covers, and it only has 40,000. I am 100% a GM customer, but the lack of quality with respect to materials is extremely disappointing.

Dash is cracking around passenger side airbag. This is unsafe because in the event of passenger airbag deploying, shards of cracked dash can become projectiles. Many complaints on internet about same issue, no resolution from dealer or GM customer service.
