  1. Looks like I'm late to the party, but I got here by searching for info on a cracking dash and ran across this link https://www.autopartswarehouse.com/blog/2018/05/the-issue-on-gm-cracked-dash/ On 06/07/2019 I purchased my 2008 GMC Yukon SLT used in a private sale with 43K miles on it, hardly ever driven, a very well taken care of SUV. No cracks in the dash. Now a month and 1000 miles later it has a crack in the driver's side of the dash 4 inches long near the seam in front of the instrument cluster, and a crack in the passenger's side of the dash 2 inches long at the corner of the airbag. I immediately saw this as a safety issue. The Takata air bag inflators have been under recall since 2016 with a status of "Remedy Not Yet Available" according to the CARFAX I ran on the Yukon, and at www.safercar.gov making the dash a ticking time bomb with shrapnel as a bonus to seriously injure or kill myself or my wife in the event the air bags deploy. NHTSA states, "Long-term exposure to high heat and humidity can cause these air bags to explode when deployed. Such explosions have caused injuries and deaths." https://www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/takata-recall-spotlight I've read where the dealership, when you could pin the Rep down, quotes a ridiculously high repair price in the neighborhood of $2000 and admitted that a cracked dashes have been a big issue with the Yukon, and hopes that you'll go away and buy a dash cover. I don't have that kind of money. I don't want a dash cover, that's nothing but a band aid on a broken leg. I want GM to step up and issue a recall. What's the status of this "new" lawsuit?
