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.

2008 Yukon 5 cracks across the entire dashboard within 30 days, 3 cracks have formed in 72 hours. One crack appeared while I was at work, in the span of 3 hours. This truck has been regularly maintained and kept in a garage for majority of its life. The cracks are forming so fast that pieces will begin shattering and falling inside. Two cracks have formed next to the passenger side airbag, that has takata inflators- exciting times! my dealership has informed me that GMC will not compensate or assist in remedying this issue- but the dealer will be happy to replace the dash for $1300.

GMC dash cracking-- filed complaint with GM and srt special response team member took info and did try to work with local dealership but in the end refused to pay to have the dash replaced. If the vehicle is in an accident and the air bad deploys I'm afraid the flying sub par plastic dash parts will become harmful objects. This is and has been an ongoing issue with Chevy and GMC products. The dash is actually starting to fall apart and causing visual concerns along with noises from broke pieces rubbing other vehicle parts.... if we were to try and sell vehicle this issue would lower the resale value.. we the people helped GM out of there self created problems.. they should help the loyal owners well once loyal---

My 2008 GMC Yukon was parked in my uncovered driveway. I remote started in from inside to the house to warm up the engine. About 2 minutes later, I went outside and got in the truck, placed keys in ignition and turned it over. It got down in the mid-30's last night, so there was a thin layer of frost on all windows. I turned on the front windshield defroster. I did not turn the back one on as the exhaust fumes from the tailpipe were melting the frost on the back window. I had been sitting in the car for approx 3-4 minutes when I heard a very loud boom and glass shattering. I looked back and could see that my back window had exploded. Shards of tempered glass were all over the pavement and inside the back area of the truck.

Dashboard is cracked by passenger side airbag and right on top on driver side steering wheel. This looks like the dashboard could act as shrapnel if deployed injuring all persons in vehicle if either airbag is deployed.

Vehicle dashboard cracking around passenger side airbag. Concerned over the possibility of the fracture splintering if the airbag were to deploy and puncturing the airbag and/or sending pieces of hard plastic into the face of passenger and/or other occupants.

I have two cracks in the dash one on the drivers side behind the steering wheel and the other leading to the passenger side air bag. This seems to be a common issue with GMC vehicles. I have addressed the issue with GM. To no relief.
