Crack in dashboard near passenger airbag.

The dashboard on the passenger side around the air bag has cracked significantly and the area on either side of the air bag cover are bowing up. It appears that where is a significant risk of the dashboard fragmenting if the air bag were to be deployed.

Dash board is cracking for no apparent reason. It has cracked on the drivers side as well as around the area where the air bag is kept. My fear is that because of the cracks the air bag could possibly deploy with no warning while driving and cause me to have accident or to cause an accident. There have been numerous reports on the gm model 2007 - 2014 Tahoes, yukons and trucks that the dashboards are cracking in the same areas on all of the vehicles around the air bag.
Dash board has cracked directly behind drivers side gauges. Also has cracked on passenger front left corner of dash air bag. This is defiantly a safety issue plastic shrapnel could be project if the bag is deployed. Please recall this problem.

2002 Tahoe lt was traveling south on two lane road when right front tire hit soft shoulder. Car left road and traveled about 200 feet before hitting a power pole. Car struck pole just behind left front tire. Impact sheared the pole off and the car rolled onto driver's side, then slid about another thirty to fifty feet. No airbags deployed. Driver struck face on steering wheel, cutting forehead and received other facial injuries. Left leg was broken in four places and driver was pinned in car for one an one half hours. The vehicle was a total loss.
Dash around airbags is cracking and failing. It's a very common problem and gm refuses to rectify. Conceivably a piece of dash could break off during an airbag deployment.
Dash cracked where the passenger air bag is located. I fear that the air bags will puncture if deployed or the passenger wil be injured due to dash pieces being projected at them.
I have a crack in the corner of my airbag. After research I have noticed that there are many people complaining about cracks in their dashboards either on the corner of the airbag or steering column. There has also been a facebook page started about this problem. It is gm yukon and Tahoe cracked dashboards. Looking at all the pictures posted there is a bit shocking. You can not tell one picture foe another because they all are cracked in the same spot. After contacting gm I was told they have many complaints daily but gm will not issue a recall in the dashboards. My concern along with many others, is if this could some how affect the performance of the airbag. I currently do not allow anyone to ride in my front seat out if fear of the airbag.
Cracked dashboard on passenger side at airbag.
Noticed two sizeable cracks in the dashboard, one of which is right near the airbag. I researched the issue and noticed there are several other Tahoe owners that are experiencing the same thing and that it is a defect in the dashboard. The cracks seem to be getting bigger and I'm concerned pieces of the dashboard will splinter creating flying projectiles if the airbag were to ever deploy.

Hello the 2006 Tahoe has a service airbag soon activated . It is a four wheel dr vehicle.

Dash cracking could cause damage to airbag and sharp shrapnel if airbag deploys.
The dashboard keeps cracking. I have had it replaced twice now and it needs to be replaced again. I am concerned about the safety during a collision or airbag deployment from sharp plastic exposed due to the cracks in the dash cutting the airbag or shards of plastic becoming projectiles potentially causing injury to occupants.
The right side of my dash at the pass. Air bag cracked about two inches well driving down I 95.
Passenger side dash cracked adjacent to airbag, very concerned about integrity of airbag system and possible safety issue.
My 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe has multiple cracks in the dashboard above the instrument panel and airbag. This is a very serious safety issue with pieces braking off if the airbags were to go off in a accident.
Car has cracks in dashboard with loose pieces of plastic around airbag. Worried that if the airbag deploys, pieces of sharp plastic could injure someone.
There are two cracks in my dashboard around the airbag areas. This should never happen! wondering if it will affect my airbags from working properly.
While vehicle was etting still not running, not in use. Vehicle was setting in my driveway, weather was around 45-50 degrees and the dash cracked in 3 spots, 2 spaces above the instrument cluster and one over the air bag area. , I have did extensive research on internet and verified that there is several cases of this happening in this particuler make/model and year of vehicle. If there was an accident the material from the dash cracking could cause cuts/or extensive wounds by producing flying debis from the air bag going off since the dash is cracking over the air bags. I have contacted gm/Chevrolet and had the vehicle inspected per their request, they didn't admit there wasn't a manufacturing flaw but they denied repairing the vehicle stating that I wasn't the original owner even though I bought gm dealreship. The service department where the vehicle was inspected verified the cracks in the dash and they were very large.
I purchased my Chevrolet Tahoe in March of 2014. I noticed two cracks in the plastic dashboard shortly thereafter near the airbag location. I am very surprised there has not been a recall as these cracks are only going to grow and impact the entire dash membrane that houses the major control systems of the vehicle.
My dash board is cracked over the instrument cluster, and around the passenger air bag. The instrument panel crack appeared right at 42,000 miles, and the passenger air bag crack happened at 51,000 miles. My chevy dealer says it is "cosmetic" so they will not cover any of the repairs, even though I am still under the "certified pre-owned" warranty. But it's going to be more than cosmetic if that air bag ever goes off. It is going to send plastic shrapnel every where. The dealer quoted me $900 to replace the dash, and says they would be putting the same dash back in, so it would more than likely just crack again. I am on a face book page (gm yukon and Tahoe cracked dash) with 576 members that have the exact same problem. Something needs to be done about this.
I got into my car at 1pm and found a crack above the instrument panel and another where the airbag should deploy on the dashboard.
