Cracked dash right where the airbag is. I park my car in the garage and use sunshades when not parked inside. My Tahoe is not that old. I take excellent care of it, and there should be no reason for the dash to crack. It almost seems like there may be too much pressure from the airbag being inside there causing it to crack. It's definitely a manufacture defect. I'm not sure the airbag will work properly if needed.

Cracked dash above airbag and instrument cluster.
Dashboard cracked. Concerned that in case of collision, sharp edges will be broadcast into passenger's compartment.

Dash has cracked around passenger air bag. Afraid it will easily deploy. Just noticed this 2" crack about a month ago. No reason to have cracked.
2 issues--- 1st--dashboard has cracks in it, which 1 crack is on the passenger side. It could be a safety hazard and cause the airbag to explode causing great harm to a person. These cracks are in the same position as many other consumers who have made complaints. 2nd--engine shuts down while driving; no steering or brake control. Radio shuts off & on, all dash components flicker on and off, gauges turn off, door locks engage & disengage. This happens for 3-10 seconds and then will "reset" and function normal. I've looked at different forums to try to find out what could be causing this and many other people are experiencing this issue.
2010 Tahoe ltz dash is cracking above the instrument panel and on the passenger side at the airbag site. This has happened over time, the dashboard bounces up and down even on smooth roads.
Dash on 2011 Chevrolet Tahoe has cracked on the passenger side next to the airbag panel. Dash has also cracked on the driver side above the instrument panel cluster. Concern is that in a car accident where the air bags deploy the dash board may break apart and become shrapnel causing additional injury, permanent disability, or death to the passenger.
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.
Tahoe dash is cracking in two spots. The first is on the corner of the passenger airbag. A very dangerous spot for a jagged edge to be next to an airbag. The 2nd is a much larger crack in the dash that appeared a year later over the instrument hump. I see many cases of Tahoe's and suburban's online with the same problem. When I see another Tahoe in a parker lot, I always check, and 9 out of 10 times they have the same cracks in the same spots. When I called gm they asked me to take it to a dealership to be looked out. The dealership quoted me $500 to fix. It's time for Chevrolet to acknowledge that they messed up and take responsibility.
Cracked dash could affect the safety of the airbags.
Vehicle was moving at normal speed and the dash cracked by the front passenger airbag.

A crack appeared recently on the dashboard starting at the corner of the passenger airbag. I just hope a friend or family member is not killed if I ever were to get in an accident. I see there have been quite a few complaints regarding this. Why has gm ignored it and not started an investigation?.

Tahoe was involved in front colision with another vehicle and bags did not deploy. Bumper, hood damaged. Bumper metal bracket pushed in. Tahoe was turning left on light when struck be another vehicle like head on.
Three large (and growing) cracks in my dashboard. One around the housing of the airbag. The other two are above the steering wheel. Very concerned that if air bag deploys, dash material from broken piece may become a projectile or puncture the airbag not allowing it to work. I see gm says it is a know design defect but there is no recall. Chevrolet dealer told me it is #1 repaired item on Tahoe.
I started up my 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe ltz on Saturday and the dash cracked on the hump over the gauges. Vehicle is garage kept. Second owner to vehicle and I have never been in an accident. If air bags were to deploy could be effected. I haul my 3 children in my vehicle daily and I no longer feel safe.
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.

Cracked dashboard. This is a common issue gm fails to acknowledge. The danger is the plastic shattering if the airbag deploys and because of the material defect in the plastic, large sharp shards can be shot into the cabin area if airbag deploys (shrapnel).
The dashboard cracked between the air bag and the dash vent while the vehicle was parked. The second crack, above the driver controls occurred while the defroster was running and while driving on the interstate traveling at approximately 65-mph.
Hello, there is a crack in my dashboard of my 2008 chevy Tahoe that may very much affect the deployment of my airbag. I really and truly feel that if an accident should occur they air bag will not function properly. I just purchased from BMW in macon on 1/6/2016 and I have an expended warranty.
I noticed crack in dash on Jan 2, 2016. Tahoe is barely over 3 years old. I am concerned crack is next to airbag and could cause safety issue if air bag is deployed.
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.
Dash has cracked within last month into the passenger airbag door. Concerned that deployment of passenger airbag would result in defective deployment or further breakage of dash causing danger to automobile passengers due to shards being broken during deployment.
Vehicle was stationary, cracks in dash developed next to airbag and over instrument panel, many owners have complained regarding having the same cracks in the same area, concern with crack near airbag - will airbag deploy properly when needed and/or will dash shatter when/if airbag is deployed.
