Takata recall. This is no resolution and it effects the resale value as well. I'm driving a vehicle that is deemed as possibly unsafe and gm has no solution. I believe there should be a class action lawsuit for punitive damages. I have tried to trade my vehicle and the dealership has stated that they can not resell my vehicle.

Failure Date: 08/05/2017

Cracked dashboard bought my 2013 chevy Tahoe ltz. Has only 98000 miles on it. Just noticed a crack at the top left corner of the dashboard, right at the edge of the passenger airbag. Two weeks later, another cracked appeared on the driver side, from the bottom edge of the dashboard and continued up and over the instrument cluster hump. Both cracks appeared while stationary. This vehicle is primarily garaged and has a windshield cover. Very disappointed, since the new retail of this vehicle is close $50,000 brand new and costs over $1000 to replace at the dealer. Not to mention, this is our primary family vehicle, which my wife, 7 yo, 4 yo and 6 month old ride in on a daily basis.

My Tahoe has dash cracks from poorly constructed dash risking dash collapse and cracks at the airbag with risk of flying debris upon release of airbag resulting in injuring occupants. Chevrolet not interested in replacing. Purchased the vehicle like this at 75000 miles and discovered this is a very common issue in all the Chevrolet and gm vehicles from years 2007-2014.

Multiple cracks across the dashboard have formed, in some cases completely bisecting the dashboard pieces. I'm concerned that if the airbags are deployed or in the event of a crash these sharp pieces of plastic will become projectiles. I was just quoted a price of $1400 by my dealer to replace the dash, but it seems this is a common problem.

Takata recall. Notified Chevrolet of nb in regards to recall the parts have not been released to replace air bags. Called takata in regards of recall. They suggested I call gm in regards to loaner car until parts are available to replace air bags. They state car is perfectly safe to drive. . . Not sure I understand this since it is a recall and several people have been killed and article reads that vehicles are unsafe to drive. . .

I was traveling at about 50 mph on an asphalt road, and for no reason at all, my side curtain airbags suddenly deployed for no reason at all. . The road had no potholes, and my vehicle had not veered from the road. I could not see the curb because once inflated, the airbags would not deflate and it was very difficult maneuver my vehicle out of traffic as I could not see from any of my side windows. I ended up hitting the curb at about 40 mph, and flattened both passenger tires and severely denting both rims as well. Had a more unexperienced driver like my daughter been driving at the time, this malfunction could have easily cost us with her life. I was on a smooth road, traveling in a straight line, in very light traffic. There was no reason whatsoever for these airbags to deploy! I spoke with my local dealership and after giving my VIN, they told me that there was a recall on the side curtain airbags, but that it wasn't technically a recall yet, because they have yet to find a solution to the problem. However, when I speak to corporate, they completely denied any knowledge of anyone ever having such a problem. Yet when I look online at Tahoe forums, the number one complaint that I see on every single site, is that the side curtain airbags deploy for no reason at all. . .

The 1st crack is at the upper left corner of the passenger air bag. This appeared roughly 2 years into ownership. The 2nd crack is to the left of the instrument cluster, starting at the front closest to the windshield and moving back toward the hump of the cluster closest to the driver. A 3rd crack has appeared, branching off the second crack at the instrument cluster pointing towards the drivers window. Those cracks appeared about 3 years ago. This product is defective. The vehicle has been kept under shaded carport or in warehouse most of it's life.

Dash has cracked in (2) places that could cause safety issues with air bags if bags were needed to deploy. Vehicle has 38k miles and has always been garage kept, so sunlight damage and armor all protectant are not the problem.
