I have a defective dashboard crack that began over driver instrument panel and extends across dash to and around the passenger airbag that is also defective. I am worried about safety as the defective airbag is now compromised even more by the cracked dashboard that is surrounding it. I am still waiting for airbag recall parts for airbag. It began in late summer and has continued to spread over time and now just cracked around the airbag. I feel our safety is compromised with a crack around an unstable, recalled airbag and I called GM customer service reference number 8-2670033882 to report this.

I own a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. Before the vehicle was out of warranty, I had to replace the dashboard due to cracking. The dashboard is cracked and broken again - all over. The vent has broken and fallen in, there are cracks around the airbag and there are complete holes where pieces have broken and fallen into the dash. I love my car and this is the only issue I have with it. I just called the dealer to replace the dashboard and was quoted $1,300 which I can not afford. According to the internet this is a very common problem with this year, make and model vehicle, Chevrolet needs to take responsibility and fix this issue.

Takata inflators I live in the northeast region and I believe my car is affected by the deflation of the airbags. Also I have an electrical issue where some of the speakers would work and then have a short and now the vehicle outlets in the front has stopped working. While driving I noticed the speakers would work and then short and come back on. Not all the front speakers are not putting out any sound and the outlets stopped working. Lastly the dash has been cracking. The crack starts from the driveside and ends in the center of the front dash. I happen to get in the car and notice a crack in the dash that gradually started to get bigger.

I am very disappointed in GM for not taking the measure to fix the cracked dashboard! not only is my air bag recalled and says it can cause serious injury my dash is cracked as well right next to a potential deadly air bag. I believe this issue needs to be fixed by GM immediately, I can guarantee if it were their family's vehicle it would be fixed!

Dashboard cracked in two places - above left side of passenger airbag and to left of steering wheel. I do no know the exact moment the cracks appeared. I know they were not present two months ago when I last cleaned the interior of my car. This car is kept in a garage or parked in the shade whenever it isn't on the road. I also use a sun screen when parked in open parking lots for brief periods. This did not occur because of uv degradation. If I have an accident I am concerned that the plastic will shatter, being one more thing to cause injury. I have attached a picture of the crack above my steering wheel. The dash is actually gray though it appears green.

I have two cracks, one located on the driver side dashboard and one on the passenger side above the airbag. Nothing has been done to produce such problem. I have also had to replace my heater core input valve. I have read that this has to do with the fact that the vehicle uses dex-cool. I am unsure of what to do with the fact that dex-cool has been found to eat away at hoses, O-rings, gaskets, and other parts of which dex-cool comes into contact with. I would also like to report that my oil pressure sending unit also needs to be replaced, it is no longer sending pressure readings to the dashboard. I have read that this is a very popular problem with many Chevrolet vehicle.

It was discovered that the dash was cracked in two spots while cleaning the vehicle. One of the cracks is located near the passenger side airbag while the other larger crack is in front of the driver. Nothing was done to cause the crack. My wife and I do not use armor all on the dash, we have not placed anything heavy on the dash, we do not place feet on the dash, we have not had any accidents that would cause the dash to crack. Our concern is pieces of the dash breaking off during a collision causing injury with air bag deployment. Another cause for concern is the cracking getting worse causing holes in the dash, exposing the electronic components under the dash.

Vehicle has significant and extensive cracking of the front dashboard, especially over the instrument console, due to an engineering design flaw in the 2007-2013 models. In the event of an accident, the dashboard will crack and splinter, causing potentially dangerous plastic shards to be directed at the occupants of the vehicle at time of impact, or possibly rupturing deployed airbags, rendering them useless.
