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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: This might be the Tahoe sweet spot. The 2013 has a great safety rating (as long as you don't roll it over), tons of room and few complaints. What it doesn't have is the interior accessory problems of the older or newer generations.

Cracked dashboard. My Tahoe is always in a garage at work and at home. It is barely 3 years old. Dealership will not help or replace. The crack is connected to the front passenger airbag. It looks horrible.

Dash board is cracked over the instrument cluster. I am concerned the airbag will shred pieces of the dashboard into my truck cabin causing serious injury or death. The plastic used for this dash is very flimsy, thin, and cheap, yet the cost to replace and repair is over 1,000! ridiculous. At almost 50,000 dollars new, Chevrolet should take care of their customers investment, and NHTSA should ensure our safety with this defective product. My 2013 Chevy Tahoe has only 50,000 miles and is garage kept. I use a reflector in the windshield daily when at work.

We bought a 2013 chev Tahoe in Jan 2016 with just under 30,000 miles with certified warranty. My dash started cracking at the driver side and at the passenger front dash airbag, we took it back to franklin Chevrolet in statesboro, ga. Well under 48,000 miles to let them know what is going on, the service manager paul told my husband that the dash was not covered under the warranty and did not ask to look at it to see if it was something that needed to be addressed. I have seen several cases on these issue, I'd like to have the problem taken care of before it cracks more and the airbag start having issues since it's cracking at the dash where the airbag is at, it's making noises every time I drive down the road and pretty sure it's only going to get worse over time.

The dashboard has cracked next to the passenger side airbag decreasing structural integrity of the dash and increasing the risk of plastic shards being ejected at the passenger during airbag deployment. This is a well documented defect affecting multiple models and years that share the same dashboard design. The manufacturer is aware of the issue and refuses to voluntarily address the problem.

Dash is cracking around passenger airbag. Vehicle is garage kept and a sun visor used when parked in the sun. This vehicle has never been in a collision and none of the air bags have ever deployed in this vehicle. The crack seems cosmetic but given the location, I am concerned about the integrity of the air bag assembly

I noticed a tiny crack in my dashboard on August 15th. Since that time it has grown 4 inches and veered off another 2 inches a different direction. My vehicle is garage kept and I am a stay at home mother. My car is rarely parked in the sun for long amounts of time.

On Monday 05/25/15 my husband noticed a small crack in the dash on the drivers side. I have watched in the past couple days it grow in size and have taken pictures to document it too. I am upset as this is a new car I purchased used from a GM dealer. I have read that another crack is soon to be expected on the passenger side by airbag and causing it to possible deploy or deemed unusable. I have 2 small children and no safety is a concern. This issue needs to be resolved quickly.
