Cracks appearing on the dashboard. Tahoe is gently used and garaged. Severe vibrations of the dashboard, when driving, is causing the cracks. The central speaker on the dash also vibrates.

While the vehicle was stationary, the dashboard cracked just above the instrument panel. There are 2 cracks. One is about 4 inches while the other is about two inches. After some research, it appears this is a very common problem with gm vehicles.
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.
Cracked dash near airbag. Cracks appearing along dashboard. If airbag deploys, sharp plastic shards will be propelled at high speeds.

I attempted to trade in my truck and was told that since my car has an open recall, the value is greatly decreased. Why is the governement allowing me to drive a vehicle that could potentially cause me harm and not properly protect me in the event of a wreck.

I read the article on the air bags and do not want any serious problems. What are my options for repair?.
The dash in my car cracked for no reason. What concerns me is that the crack is next to the airbag on the passenger side. If this airbag were to deploy it could cause the broken pieces of dash to turn into projectiles causing a dangerous if not deadly injury. This vehicle has never been on anything but smooth paved roads. The vehicle only has 61,200 miles on it. We were on an interstate when this occurred.
Side rail airbags deployed while I was driving on a city street without any impact.
