Dashboard cracks. In 2 different areas of my dash, cracks start from the front of the vehicle running back towards the front seats. The crack on the passenger side connects to the airbag compartment. If the airbag were to deploy, it seems plastic shards may become projectiles in the passenger compartment. This seems to be a common problem for this year and make vehicle, according to online posts. I have 1989, 2006, 2008 year vehicles that the dash is fully intact.

My dash board in my vehicle is cracking for no reason! it is cracking in 2 different spots. One in front of driver but the one that really concerns me is the one on passenger side. The crack goes to the air bag and I'm so scared my bag will deploy randomly like the crack appeared or if it deploys upon impact sharp hard plastic edges can be harmful! this is not just cosmetic and even if it were Chevrolet needs to be held accountable!

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.

The dashboard in my 2011 Chevy Tahoe began cracking at approxmately 70K miles. In the event of a crash I'm concerned for my family's safefty as the dashboard continues to crack in a spiderweb fashon. I've contacted my Chevrolet customer service and have been told that my vehicles original 3 year/36,000 mile warranty has expired and I can contact my local dealership to have the defect fixed at my expense. This vehicle was $55K brand new and it is clearly a manufacturer defect for the dashboard to crack after 4 years or any other time and expecting customes to pay over $1000 to correct this issue is unacceptable. This is a defect that should be corrected at no cost to vehicle owners.

1) rear windows hold water when it rains causing doors to rust 2) dashboard driver side at some time cracked itself all over cheap flawed designs and definitely the last GM I'll own

Airbag recall but GM is not making any effort to replace the airbag. Dash is cracked and appears to be a manufacturing defect.

The dashboard of my 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe has cracked in 4 places. The first cracks appeared approximately 18 months after I purchased the SUV. These cracks may have a safety problem as they may affect the air bag operation. The Tahoe has spent most of its' life in a garage when not in use. I tried to glue the first 2 cracks.

Dashboard is cracked in front of the driver. Hard plastic knife like structure are exposed to passengers. Also cracked on the passenger side airbag area. Chevrolet states it is cosmetic. This is potentially a hazard for the occupants.

Cracked dash - the dash on the car has cracks in multiple areas near air bag and over the odomoter. Very common issue on this car. Chevy even improved this piece for future cars but wont acknowledge this was a defect to begin with.

Purchased vehicle used in November 2015. There was a crack in the dashboard adjacent to the passenger side airbag. It currently has not gotten worse. In the last two days a new larger crack seems to be progressing on the hump of dash above the steering wheel. After researching it seems this is a consistent issue with this model for years 2007-2011. My coworker has a 2007 and has suffered with same problems. Another coworker who owns a Toyota received official information telling her that there are issues relating to cracking dashboards and if it is near the airbag the airbag can spontaneously deploy and not to let people sit in the front seat. If this is the same for the Tahoe I am deeply concerned for my safety and others who ride with me. Especially since this vehicle is apart of airbag recall and is waiting to be fixed. The crack was noticed while the vehicle was stationary. Earlier in the week while driving to work I heard a cracking sound but did not see anything obvious at the time.
