I have two cracks in my dash, one at the passenger side and the other side at the driver side hump. How much does it cost to replace if not covered by warranty?
Upper Dash cracked at airbag on passenger side. Center of dash now bounces from weight of center speaker.
Dash cracked above passenger airbag . This seems to be a common problem . Have extended warranty . No help .
Tahoe has always been garaged, used sun shield all the time. dash is cracking on driver side, in the middle and toward the airbag. Very disappointed of an expensive car with cheap materials
Dashboard is cracked and vibrates while driving. I am worried if an accident happens, that the dashboard will shatter and be dangerous to those in front seats.
Dash broken in line from center of steering hump to front edge, now rattles or vibrates and is very annoying.
Upper dash cracked. Navigation screen went blank. Disconnected battery and reconnected. Screen working now. Be aware, many electrical issues reported on other sites.
Dash cracked in same locations all other posters. Dealer said it was my fault and I must be using armour all. I have never used it and it is garaged most of the time. I will never buy another car from this dealer in Charlotte.
Dashboard cracked on drivers side to the left of the raised instrument area. Extended warranty will not cover. Dealer said they would pay 1/2 and I could pay 1/2 or about $500.00! Yikes, this us outrageous.

I am wondering if a previous replacement of a side door rear view mirror would have required the dashboard to be lifted and therefore compromised?
I have two cracks in my dash. On the passenger side behind the airbag and drivers side going over top of the odometers. The center bounces and vibrates. Making an awful squeaking noise. I have an extended warranty and still have to pay $500 !!!!
