We bought the vehicle used from a used car lot. It was pouring rain. We live near Seattle and we went to Portland to look at the Tahoe.

The dealer was pushy and seemed to want us to hurry and seal the deal. We did. Only the next day we really had a chance to look at it and yes the dash was cracked in 2 places.

Also the exterior. The automatic running boards have stopped working.

This issue is common for the Tahoe 2007-2014. It should be a recall and Chevy should fix the problem.

Trade in value is drastically affected because of this defect. Anyone that owns a Tahoe with this problem is frustrated with the unwillingness of Chevy to listen to them. This is a disgrace for a USA product. Make it right Chevy. Put some faith back into American made products or at least admit the defect. Do what is right for the American consumer. Thanks CAR COMPLAINTS for the sounding board.

Temperature dropped into teens last night. Not sure if the fact that it was hot in the SUV when I got home last night, mixed with the drop in temp did this? Never happened before in any other vehicle I have owned including previous Tahoe.

IT'S ONLY GETTING WORSE! The fact that so many other Tahoe owners are complaining about the same issue should be a red flag to Chevy.

I have owned 3 Chevy vehicles including my current 2008 Tahoe. I had never had a problem with the previous two vehicles, but on the Tahoe I have experienced 6 years into my truck a cracked dashboard. I have contacted GMC to complain about my issue and requesting some sort of financial relief for the cost of the expensive repair.

I was amazed when searching for similar issues that there were quite a few Chevy Tahoe owners that experience the same problem. I explain these complaints to the customer service rep that was assisting me. And of course they denied that there are issues. They declined assistance on helping me repair the issue which is due to their manufacturing of this vehicle! I am very unsatisfied with their unwillingness to even not offer some sort of solution. GMC needs to realize there is a serious problem with their manufacturing and issue a recall on 2008 Chevy Tahoe's.

I have had my 2008 Chevy Tahoe for 3 years and in 2012 we noticed that the dash was cracked on the passenger's side right by the air bag and also along the driver's side. This should not be happening on a 2008 at all and it is depreciating my vehicle by about $700, maybe more. I couldn't even trade it in w/out taking a big hit because of this issue. I didn't realize that there were so many other vehicles like mine with this same issue.

CHEVY REALLY SHOULD ISSUE A RECALL FOR POOR DASH QUALITY

To have a cracked dash in a truck that's just 6 years old is totally unacceptable for any standards. chevy should have a recall on these problems for the dash and the door handles and they wonder why people buy foreign.

Tahoe LT 4.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

My dashboard has cracked in 3 separate places and I keep having to super glue it so that it does not crack in half over the instrument cluster... I don't understand how this could happen with a SUV that I just dropped $24,000 on USED... This is a problem that I have read happens to a lot of Tahoe owners. I'm surprised that Chevy hasn't at least offered to help try and remedy the problem...

Tahoe SL V8

I'm just disappointed that the dashboard in my Tahoe would crack in 2 to 3 different places. I have never had this happen to me before and this is my 3rd vehicle from Chevrolet. I would think this was a recall problem.

Would like to know.

I was so mad to see this big crack in my dashboard on the driver side. I live in Jacksonville NC and the weather is not harsh so it has to be a defect. I just wish I could have it fixed.

Tahoe LTZ 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission

We hope that GM will issue a recall on the dash crack. Ours is on the passenger side near the airbag. It is common on these trucks because of the poor manufacturing quality. After this we probably will not buy a Chevy again. The dealership straight up and told us that ours was a first, I'm like bs. Whatever!!! This is why I will not by GM cars again there lack of customer appreciation is under par. This is after I showed him print outs of others that are having the same cracked panels. GM if you are reading this please make it right to the consumers out there that are supporting American made automobiles. Thank you.

I am very disapointed in my Tahoe. This is just one of many problems I have had since purchasing it. I feel like I have bought a lemon..
