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?.

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).
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.
My 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe has developed numerous cracks in the dashboard including around the passenger airbag. My biggest concern is that is I get into an accident, as pieces of the dash going to be shot at/into passenger and/or driver. I have tried to get gm/Chevrolet to replace and their option was for me to spend $800 to replace their dashboard that has material defects. That does not seem acceptable and I am sure is not practical considering I have read there are thousands of people with the same issue. Can the NHTSA help?.
Dash is cracking around passenger airbag and above instrument cluster. Concerned that if airbags went off dash pieces would impale driver and/or passengers.

2013 chevy Tahoe, defective cracked dashboard. Safety issue could result in defective or unsafe deployment of air bag, not cosmetic according to several other reports. Driver side, behind cluster. . Read more...
The plastic dashbord has cracks on the edge of the airbag unit and over the top of the speedometer unit. There is also major cracks on 30 to 40 percent of the flat portion of the dash. These cracks are sharp and severe. The cracking started and has eventually gotten worse over time to the point of a safety concern. If the airbag is deployed there is great risk that the dash board may come apart and kill or injure the passenger and others in the vehicle. I have read hundreds of complaints on the internet in regards to this safety issue. Please investigate to find out if a repair or recall is needed. As an engineer I believe gm should make the repair.
Three dash board cracks appeared on the dash overnight. One crack near drivers dash area under windshield, two others on passenger side of dash by the airbag. Concerned this could cause issues with airbag deployment or cause proper operation issues. This Tahoe was perfectly fine, came out to car overnight and noticed the cracks.
Came out to take the kids to school and there was a crack in my dash near the passenger air bag. Crack appeared over night, car was parked in oceanside CA. Concern for passenger and flying debris or if airbag will even work properly. This seems to be a common problem.
Dash has cracked around passenger air bag . If airbag is deployed could send pieces into passenger. Seems is a common problem .
Top of dashboard cracked - no accident involved. I have concerns about the airbag working properly now. Dealer wants $1,000 to fix it.
The dashboard has cracked near the air bag on the passenger side which appear to be a safety issue if it may cut or impair the proper inflation of the airbag.
The dash on my Tahoe has broken right next to the passenger air bag. It has actually broken a piece of in the air bag. It is my understanding that this is a common problem with these vehicles as the dash is not structurally sound. My fear is that if the air bag is deployed that shards of plastic will be embedded in the passenger. This is the only defect on the dash and it appears to have happened at the weakest point.
The dash board is cracked in three different spots and one is right at the passenger air bag. The dealership will not fix cause it's not under warranty. I feel like this is a safety hazard and gm needs to fix this issue.
While cleaning the dashboard I heard a loud noise and noticed it had cracked in two places. One over the drivers side "hump" and the other at the air bag. It now has three cracks.
This the 2nd time mine dashboard has cracked on paassenger side of mine 2010 Tahoe. The 1st time serra Chevrolet fixed at no cost to me. This time that said that it would be over a $1,000 dollars. I do not think I should have to pay this, I park in mine garage. I would like to be able to go get it corrected at no cost to me. I just saw that it had happen, there were no accidents.
