I noticed that the dash in my 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe ltz is cracked above the air bag on passenger side. I also have read where this is something that is happening to lot of Tahoes , suburbans and yukons etc. This should be unacceptable for the amount of money I and many other people spend on these vehicles . Something should be done about this. My Tahoe stays garage kept out of the sun and this still happened.

Multiple dash cracks around steering column and more concernedly around passenger air bag. This is separate from the airbag recall that currently exists. The dash being cracked around this particular point would cause vinyl shrapnel to be sent throughout the cabin of the vehicle presenting a serious safety hazard. This is the only place on the vehicle these cracks are happening even though much of the interior is finished with this same type of vinyl.

I see that there is an outstanding recall for my vehicle, I have 3 small children and cannot risk driving them in a vehicle that has issues with the airbags. What can be done as I am paying and driving this vehicle that is potentially deadly if the airbags deploy in an accident. The recall # is 16v381. I keep seeing that there is no remedy available. This is a serious danger to my family.

Vehicle has significant and extensive cracking of the front dashboard, especially over the instrument console, due to an engineering design flaw in the 2007-2013 models. In the event of an accident, the dashboard will crack and splinter, causing potentially dangerous plastic shards to be directed at the occupants of the vehicle at time of impact, or possibly rupturing deployed airbags, rendering them useless.

Takata recall-----I received a letter almost 3 months ago that there was a recall out on the airbags in my Tahoe. I took the Tahoe to the chevy dealer where I purchased the vehicle and they told me that I have to wait for a 2nd letter having to do with the parts coming in??? I have not gotten that 2nd letter? I have been back 2 times since and get the same response from the dealer service department. . I have to wait for the 2nd letter about the parts being available to fix the vehicle. Am I going to have to wait until something catastrophic happens?.

While driving for about 3 minutes on street the Tahoe started to smell like smoke, we then noticed smoke coming out of the air conditioning vents in a matter of seconds there where flames coming out from underneath the glove compartment. The car caught on fire and the air bag deployed. The dash board was completely melted from the fire, the front windshilled shattered with force towards the back of the truck.

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.

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.

Two issues: 1. Dashboard cracked at airbag on passenger side and on drivers side. Airbag deployment appears unsafe due to cracking. 2. In hot and humid weather to, the traction and stability systems become inoperable and the message system requests that maintenance be performed. This message can come up a few minutes after driving or can come on right after starting the vehicle.
