The upper dash may crack, most commonly on vehicles in warm climates and exposed to a lot of sunlight. The common repair is to replace the upper instrument trim panel. Information on a technical service bulletin or extended warranty is not available at this time.

2007 gmc yukon, dashboard cracked top left of passenger side airbag and on right side of hump over steering wheel. I called GMC and told them it was a serious safety issue as its seems like the dashboard is going to fall into the steering column and even make the air bag not function properly. GMC told me to take it to local dearler to check if it was accurate and not normal wear and tear. GMC is replacing it FREE of charge!!! Call them up 1800 462 8782 they are really great about the situation. It seems as they do not want to issue recall; just replacing as they come up. Only bad thing is that it takes all day to replace.

I have the same issue, and have created a petition on Change.org to petition General Motors to address this as a safety recall. Please help me out by signing the petition. https://www.change.org/p/recall-2007-2013-vehicles-due-to-the-safety-of-cracked-dashes?recruiter=26376387

We have had this car 11 months. It is kept in garage at night. Got in car on cold morning, and heard loud pop after I turned heat on. A large (6") crack is now above the hump over the control panel. It is on right side. The dealership says the factory warranty is up and the extended warranty we paid for will not cover it. We called the 1-800 number mentioned above, but no resolution yet.

I just noticed a huge crack on the hump of the dash over steering column and a new crack on left side of air bag. This is ridiculous and there needs to be a recall, clearly this isn't user error. The most oddest place for cracks. I'm going to call this week and hopes is gets taken care of ASAP. Not going to stop until it is taken care of. I'll keep you all updated.
One day perfect, next day to cracks. Airbag on passenger side, instrument hump on driver side.

Crack on dash by the passengers side airbag. Called GMC- opened case. I think it all has to do with the dealership and their willing to help. Needless to say the dealership in town HALL GMC Tyler,tx was not willing. They said my Yukon has to many miles. But was offered 1500 credit toward new car. HMMMM- the service rep at GMC even said they knew it was a problem in the southern states.

Crack above driver side dash and on passenger side where airbag is. Same place that everyone else has the cracks. Clearly a problem with design of dash. Chevrolet should be held responsible.
