I have a 2013 Suburban with the common cracked dash issues. Mine has a major crack neat the passenger airbag, middle speaker and over the instrument panel. It came this way when I bought in on 8/29/2019 but I consider it a potential hazard if the airbag were to deploy.

There is a crack in my dashboard around the passenger airbag on my 2013 Suburban ltz. I am concerned that if the airbad was to deploy, pieces of plastic would become flying projectiles. The dash makes an awful rattle and is distracting to driver safety. This needs to be recalled for repair by Chevrolet.

The dashboard in front of the driver's seat has developed a crack approximately 2-3 inches in length. The vehicle has never been involved in any type of accident or collision. The crack started about two weeks ago and has slowly increased in length. My concern is if I am in an accident this area might splinter and cause injuries.

My vehicle's dash has developed two cracks on top of the instrument panel near the passenger airbag and above the driver's instrument cluster consistent with the many other complaints. Leads to the failure of the dash compromising the safety of passengers should airbags deploy. In an accident, plastic shards are more likely to injure passengers. In no way can this be expected to be normal and it concerns me that our safety could be compromised. This same issue has happened on my 2010 Chevrolet Suburban too.

My vehicle's dash has developed a crack on top of the instrument panel consistent with the many other complaints. Leads to the failure of the dash compromising the safety of passengers should airbags deploy. In an accident, plastic shards are more likely to injure passengers. The vehicle is always kept in the garage. It is not a commuter vehicle used for work that sits in the sun all day long. It is a vehicle used for traveling. When outside, we have a quality sunshade that is used. I have a ten year old truck and the dash looks perfect. In no way can this be expected to be normal and it concerns me that our safety could be compromised.
