Joey Goodwin: 2007 Silverado LTZ. Live in Louisiana. Made it through the heats of the
summer fine, got some 20 degree weather and same loud pop everyone else is
talking about, now I have a 5 inch crack on top of the instrument cluster.
Anyone had their's leather wrapped?
Jonathan Lloyd: Takata Corp makes the dash as well as many other parts for our American
Vehicles. This is nothing compared to my 98 Burb . Its destroyed
Brian Campeau: I've got a 2007 silverado ltz which has the same dash board I live in a hot
climate where temperatures are frequently over 100deg which eats Dash
boards alive I've seen just as many new dodge and ford dash panels in
pieces. however I haven't had any issue with my truck that now has 135000
miles on it. I am a technician for a mercedes dealer and can tell you that
even on a $100,000 mercedes the plastic chrome handles peel. We also find
that dash panels tend not to last as long if treated with certain cleaning
agents such as armoral. The best is to just wipe down with light soap and
water. Also many cleaning agents cause the plastic to peel. Another known
cause of the peeling are certain air fresheners especially the liquid ones
that clip on the vents. So before anyone blames a manufacture for a product
please be advised cracking and peeling of plastic interior panels usually
happens due to outside influences and improper care.
whited586: The dash boards are freaking crap
Kirk Davis: GM suck cheaply made i have these same problems with my 07 LTZ avalanche
dashboard cracking door handles peeling dash lights going out etc. I will
never purchase another GM vehicle again am turning to Ford, people coming
to GM defense probably employed by them.
waxxdout: Thats 5 years later
Get a new truck problem solved
Cole Angrimson: The problem isn't GM it's the company that made the parts(not GM). Where GM
is screwing up is the fact they won't repair it and it happens on every one
of them. My '07 Avalanche just started doing this by the airbag. Kinda
pisses me off but what do you do. I thought about pulling the dash, plastic
welding it all and have it leather wrapped :D
jimmy thomas: I have the same problem a Cracked Dashboard which it seems to be a problem
with most of the Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, Avalanche, & GMC Yukon. I have a
few friends with the same problem. My truck is cracked so bad that it has
affected part of the dashboard lighting. I think that this should be a
recall. I will not purchase another Chevrolet anything ever unless they
resolve the issues with these vehicles. I have a 30 year old truck with the
dashboard still in tact..
David Davis: Problems with their crappy door speakers. Time for a new car and new
company. GM gets the middle finger!!!!!
mzallaboutme79: I have a 2007 and my dashboard is cracked, the chrome off my door handle is
peeling and the leather look like someone has slashed it but that wasn't
the case, smh.
Stephen Perry: I am curious, are the people that are experiencing this in the northern
part of the country or more in the southern part of the country. I wonder
if extreme temp fluctuations are to blame for the plastics cracking?
Packersrulealways: How much of a discount do I ask for if I find this in a truck I'd like to
David Davis: This sounds like a recall issue. So what GM didnt make it. They are backing
the company's product for the dashboard. GM needs to be responsible for the
defect. Not a saftey issue so they dont give a dam!
michael neau: Have a 07 tahoe with cracks I. The same exact places. Definitely going Ford
David Davis: GM does have a recall for the cracked inside door handles. Mine were
changed this summer.
Bjorn Johnsen: This is terrible and after seeing this movie getting really mad. We were
driving home yesterday and then it cracked right where the pax airbag
starts as in this movie for no reason and the dash fell down 1 inch. My
Avalanche is an 08 and only has 45K miles and did look like new before
this. Shame on Government Motors. And, talk about really taking care of a
vehicle. We DID! What can we do??
Kenne Thomas: 2012 Avalanche with 19,xxx miles on it and heard a loud pop about 3 days
ago, was washing it and noticed a crack about 5 inches long in the dashpad
at the bottom of the cluster "bump". A little disappointed I must say
April S: My 2007 Denali dashboard has cracks in the exact location as shown on this
video- I plan on taking pics and uploading- the first one was minor toward
the left behind the bump- eventually another crack developed on the right
side next to the airbag! I don't know how GMC can't say this is NOT a
defect- Clearly this is an issue! I will be calling GMC soon- if anything
just to bitch and complain-- it will make me feel better. Oh and when I
went to my local GMC dealer he didn't even hesitate nor did he bother to
come look at my dashboard; he quickly said, "It'll cost around $1000" he
undoubtedly seen enough and knew exactly what I was talking about!!
David Hodges: Same thing with my friends silverado
ChrisRebellion: Can we prevent this. Or find ways to prevent this to happen. I have am 07
yukon and the paint is really worn off on dash board and the control panel
buttons. I don't. I want to make them look like new but. I don't know where
to go for that and is it worth it too
Khalil Albawab: 2010 GMC Yukon, with 2 dashboard cracks. one is at the passengers airbag
the other is right on the instrumentation dome. I thought I have these
cracks happened because of heat. I live in the Middle East and it is so hot
here. but I'm still in love with My GMC
MGTOW KANE: lol.. Government Motors
amber maddox: I have the same crack in my dash. I found it a week ago.
philip john: He just collected cars with cracking dashboard and make the crap review.
daniel meek: 2008 Tahoe.... Crack just appeared on the left top portion of air bag and
above the steering wheel. Just like this video shows. Didn't know this was
a big problem. Thought it was just my vehicle. WOW.
pablo cramer: Got the same problem with my 2007 Tahoe LTZ. Is there a way to repair the
dashboard or do I have to change the unit?
USSPhoenix23: they're all essentially the same car. i don't see the point of buying any
of them because they're all the same. plus that cracking dashboard probably
means it's a piece of junk anyway.
April S: we all need to start calling GMC and raise hell!
yay to social media-!!
Zeeshan Siddiqui: I have an 07 Avalanche with a cracked dash around the airbag area. I
reported this to GM but there was no serious effort to fix the issue. I
think this is a serious problem since a cracked dash around the airbag
could lead to unsafe situations. However as is evident from recent GM
recall fiasco, they don't take action until the situation is already out of
dwayne smith: Yup, I have a 07 avalanche that has pretty much all of these problems
except the crack near the air bags.
Xtragicfever: I have a 2008 GMC Sierra regular 2WD, and it has a crack near the passenger
airbag and one that just happened yesterday on the driver's side, in front
of the instrument panel, closer to the window.
Parallel Burrito: GM needs to accept responsibility and at least make the parts available for
free.I've got the crack at the corner of the passenger side airbag just
like shown in this video. This situation will make it near impossible to
find a good used piece as replacement since most all are bad. They stand to
lose a lot of customers if they do not correct this issue.
marc1093280: GM does not care about quality at all. I know because we have had many GM
cars. Toyota and Honda and Nissan are much worse than GM, though.
witchert: Have a 2010 Yukon. Just noticed the same problem the other day when I was
washing my truck. Had no idea how it happened. Now I see it's a ongoing
problem. Looking into ordering a dash cover :(
God Mann: Wow! I just sold my 2013 2500 Suburban LT with only 4250 miles to a dealer
for a whopping good price, and now I see I dodged a bullet. THANKS!
damon smith: Gm not going to replace interior parts I hade a 2004 buick that had dash
lights going out and the dash was ccoming apart they wanted me to pay $2000
just for parts kiss my ass gm and it had 39000 miles at the time
Jason Weimer: Me too 2 cracks same place. Waiting for gm to do nothing!
tysonmw77: My 07 avalanche has the same issue. I was waiting on a recall but so far I
haven't heard of anything.
maikata329: Intechdude300: Are you a former GM or tier one molding engineer? As you
are aware of the common defect among this molded part, it is obvious a flaw
in the design and manufacture of there molding program. Or you're a
service tech who has had to deal with changing these out. Also, what part
of the country are these vehicles in you have shown us? Arizona might be
mortal hell on composite materials that were cheapened up by removing UV
stabilizers. Just wondering.
Maggie Lyons: I have a 2008 Chevy Suburban with all the same blemishes. Cracks in
dashboard above the steering wheel and passenger air bag, cracked and
peeling chrome on drivers door handle, chipped paint on a/c control
buttons. What the hell?
SwPiotrek: It looks like made in china :(
h8thelaw: I have a 2005 H2 and a 2007 Denali and they both have a few cracks in he
dash. I live in Arizona but that not a reason for this to happened I
believe its just cheap plastic being used.
Chris Sutera: What I find bewildering is that GM never put out an official recall. 6
years of this generation truck and they didn't do squat. I honestly don't
know how there wasn't a lawsuit against GM.
Monte Olsen: @jose832010 Wow! Maybe Chevy has changed their way of operating. That is
good to hear. We owned a Silverado and got nothing but trouble from Chevy
trying to repair a transmission. I am happy to see that things have changed.
camillecntaylor: I just noticed my dashboard cracked this weekend. Very disappointed in the
quality. Thanks for the video.
julius350z: wow! thanks for putting this up! Im looking to get one and now I know what
to look for. Thanks for sharing this
Shivesh Patel: 2008 Chevy Avalanche, 68k miles & a CRACKED Dashboard. This video is Legit.
Intechdude300: @Jason Snider that's actually offensive to actual owner IMO, like those who
paid almost $70K for their fully loaded Denali & end up with a cracking
dashboard 3 years later. In saying 3 years as I've already spotted the 2010
trucks suffering identical fate. Super won't fix the problem once over the
speedometer & etc.
paul reed: does he keep it covered? his dash will crack in a couple years.it may have
small cracks above the instument cluster allready. oh BTW Dodge is having
the same issues. I think they are using the same plastic formula.
Intechdude300: Not always as brands such as Toyota,Lexus, Infiniti, & Acura have their
share of cracking/pealing/Melting/Warping dashboards on many models as well
:P I just never got around to making a montage like done here but examples
are found in some of my videos :P
