Cracked dash over the instrument panel. Vehicle kept in immaculate condition but it appears that the heating /cooling cycle along with sub-par material and design may be creating a huge problem for a great many of Tahoe owners. The initial crack was noticed during the summer months in northern Illinois and over a period of two-three weeks it progressed from the seam between the two dash panels towards the drivers position. This vehicle has not been wreck, abused, or taken off road. Unknown exactly when or what caused the dash to start cracking but it seems to be an ongoing problem which can cause a safety issue along with a decreased value of these vehicles due to poor quality. Love the truck but the quality and customer support are very poor.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V381000 (air bags); however, the parts for the recall repair were not available. The contact stated that the manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was not notified of the issue. The contact had not experienced a failure. VIN tool confirms parts not available.

The dash board has a crack right next to the air bag also above the gauges. My worry is if the air bag goes off the plastic from the dash will pop up and put a hole in the air bag. Which will then deflate and no serve its purpose. Or that part of the dash board will break off from the impact of the air bag and will hurt someone in the vehicle. Please contact. Me for photos it is saying they are too large to upload. Thank you

My truck is selected for recall.. but letter says it's safe to drive. But the letter also explains what can happens if the air bags inflator may rupture during deployment causing serious or fatal injuries. Also the inflator can degrade over time, especially after long term exposure in hot and humid regions.. well it's summer time and that can happen if I have an accident.. need my truck taken asap..

Chevy ss Tahoe purchased new in 2007 has multiple cracks in the area surrounding the passenger air bag. It is my concern that if this is deployed there may be portions of this dash that will be deployed with the air bag. In addition the dash board has crack above the drivers steering column that has splintered into multiple cracks. In speaking with my insurance Agency I was informed that this is a common issue with this model of Chevy Tahoe 2007. I do not see any recalls, but this needs to be addressed immediately along with this recall of the airbags for this vehicle type.

The dashboard has two cracks one over the steering wheel and one over the passenger side air bag. I also have the light on and off saying (air bag service required) and the cruise control N has not been working neither for like 2 years all. It is a safety issue and concern when I travel with my family and this issue should be addressed immediately.

I bought this 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe brand new an this is the 2nd crack on my dash now it has a large crack next to the passenger airbag. I am afraid of this airbag being punctured in case of an accident. And a piece of the dash breaking off and stabbing the passenger. GM needs to be held accountable for this faulty dash materials that were used! this is a safety concern that needs to be repaired asap! these cracks happened when my wife was driving normally, this should not happen again.

My impeccably maintained SUV has multiple cracks in the dash that I believe if the air bags deploy will cash serious bodily harm. I am continually finding pieces on the dash on my floorboard near the gas pedals on the drivers side and far forward on the passenger side. And recently with the cracks getting worse I have noticed the broken pieces are starting to flap around with the forced air coming through the vents.

2007 Chevy Tahoe, dash has cracked in two places. One crack is in the left corner at the airbag (complete crack top to bottom). The second is at the left side over the steering wheel (within 1 inch being completely cracked from top to bottom). This is a defect in the materials not any incident that caused this to crack. There are hundreds of complaints and all dash cracks are basically in the same area. Very much a safety hazard especially if a crash occurred. Possibly could cause shattering of the dash pieces and cause injuries or possibly interfere with airbag deployment.

Passenger side airbag explosively inflated while driving approximately 30 miles per hour on an inner city street. No jarring or collision occurred directly prior to this incident. This appears unprovoked and poses a major safety risk to consumer. We have young children who could have been seriously injured in this incident. Thankfully they were not in the vehicle at the time and it was the passenger side which exploded and not the driver side. Any of theses scenarios would have (and did) easily endanger the driver and other individuals on or near the road when incident occurred. I immediately turned into a Chevrolet dealership and am currently awaiting word on what exactly caused the airbag inflation.

Crack in the dash on drivers side. Interior door handles have caused cuts to hands. Service battery charging system light continues to come on. I have had the car serviced & mechanics can not locate the issue. Seems to be an electrical malfunction.

Dashboard is cracked in three locations. 1st and 2nd: Over passenger side airbag from upper corners of the airbag to the air-vent panel 3rd: Approximately 8 inches along the top of the driver instrument panel to the air-vent panel. Additional separation between panels is created during temperature changes or running the heater in cold weather. Have had two dealerships tell me it is a normal, known, and reoccurring problem with the body-style but offered to replace it for over $1,000.

Dashboard cracks in all GM vehicles near the passenger airbag. Not sure if it affects the airbag but will definitely send sharp plastic parts flying if airbag is needed.
