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.

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.

Takata recall - my dash is cracked from drivers column to the passenger airbag. Other cracks in the surface are starting to form...I hope my family is never in a crash it bothers me to think the dashboard will crumble, break apart and could cause other injuries.

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.

Vehicle was stationary. Dashboard cracked in two spots over time. Vehicle has not been in an accident. First crack was noted over the instrument panel of the vehicle's gauges that are used to determine speed, rpms, etc. Second was noted adjacent to the front passenger airbag. If the vehicle were in an accident, the cracked dashboard could puncture the airbag rendering the airbag unusable and allowing for more bodily harm and possibly fatality. Also, if the vehicle were in an accident and the airbags did deploy without being punctured, the cracked dashboard could then become shrapnel causing more bodily harm and possibly fatality to anyone that is a passenger in the vehicle. I urge the NHTSA to look into this matter and research it heavily. Chevrolet and GM are aware that this is a common issue with many of their vehicles of the '07-'11 models, yet refuse to take any corrective action. I obtained a repair estimate from a certified Chevrolet dealership for $761.63.

I have a crack in my dash that is near the top left hand corner of my airbag panel. Also, there is another crack that goes over the top of my instrument panel. The cracks appeared out of nowhere. The vehicle was not involved in any kind of wreck. The cracks were pointed out to me when I took the vehicle in for an oil change appx. Six months ago. I am trying to trade in my vehicle and I am getting $1,000 hit on the trade-in amount offered. The more I investigate it seems this is a common problem. Why has there not been a recall"??????????????"
