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.

I don't understand why gm can put the replacement of takata air bags off and put my family in danger. I understand other car manufactures have already started replacing the defective air bags. Don't they know there is a danger. The statement from gm to me is it is safe to drive my car. If so why do they have a recall at all?.

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.
