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.
Dashboard cracked at airbag and also near steering column, instrument panel for no reason.

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.

The dash on my vehicle has broken 2x and is broken again causing the dash to allow an opening where items can fall into the airbag compartment causing the bag to malfunction.
My dash has cracked above the gauge cluster and above the passenger airbag.
Crack appeared yesterday (06/21/16) in the dash - at the upper left corner of the passenger airbag compartment.
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.
