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.

My Tahoe was parked when I noticed 2 cracks on the left hand corner by the passenger side airbag on my dashboard. I also have a really large crack on the dashboard above the instrument panel. I am concerned that airbag will not deploy correctly if I were in an accident.

The dashboard has cracks in multiple areas which has created a safety concern if the airbags were to deploy. I'm concerned that the plastic that is cracked could fly/hit driver/passenger in the case of airbag deployment.

My dash is cracking and breaking around my airbag. This seems like it could be very dangerous in a crash. I'm worried that either the airbag won't deploy as it should or if it does, there will be shards of plastic dash flying around in the cab. Nothing happened to the dash, it just started cracking.

The dashboard of my 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe is cracked and my concern is it will affect the airbag in an emergency situation. It started with a small crack and now is cracked in 3 places. There was no reason why this should have happened.

A random crack, about 2" long, appeared in dash just above and to the right of steering wheel. Further research showed that this is a common occurrence with this make and mode during 2007-2011 and GM is aware but is doing nothing about it.

  • 13,000 miles
Typical Chevy Tahoe dash cracking issue. It worries me that if I am in an accident that sharp pieces of plastic may cause more harm to someone inside the cabin than if it was addressed and repaired. GM is at fault for using cheap materials and the consumer shouldn't have to pay. It isn't caused by anything that the owner of the vehicle is or isn't doing. Purely material and manufacturing defects. We pay $50K for these trucks each the least GM could do is spend the $500 if that per vehicle to replace it.

- Sumter, SC, USA
