Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I contacted everett Chevrolet in hickory, nc after having just purchased the vehicle used from another dealer. I was provided with recall paperwork. I was referred to a service manager who informed me that they did have replacement parts, but I would have to pay for the repair and hopefully be reimbursed by tekata.

Takata recall. The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 16V381000 (air bags) months ago. The dealer indicated several times that parts were unavailable. In addition, while driving approximately 20 mph to make a left, the contact crashed into the rear of another vehicle. The contact coasted the vehicle over to the side of the road. A police report was filed. The front of the vehicle was damaged. None of the air bags deployed. The dealer and manufacturer were notified of the failure. The contact was waiting for a response from the manufacturer concerning the recall and to investigate why the air bags failed to deploy. The contact sustained whiplash, but did not require medical attention. The approximate failure mileage was 54,000. VIN tool confirms parts not available.

Takata recall - I contacted Chevy's hotline today (800-222-1020) and they told me that my vehicle is no longer apart of the recall. I'm concerned that they are telling me this to get out of replacing my airbag. I need Chevrolet to fulfill their commitment to me as their customer and put my safety and the safety of my family first. Thank you

I am having the same cracked dash issue every other owner is having with these GM models 2007-2014 GM trucks/SUVS. I just noticed the three cracks I have, so I am not sure when exactly they started (within the last few months).

I have a truck with a air bag recall but, on top of that I have another crack in the same place on the dashboard that was replaced once already while under warranty. I fear air bag will cause dash to come out a strike passenger while riding.

Received a notice on a recall that states that around the end of May 2016 GM began notifying owners that a recall was in place for defective airbag inflators that may degrade over time especially in hot and humid climates. That they pose a rupture risk and from researching on the NHTSA website if this happens metal particles could injure occupants...but GM states the vehicle is safe" and that parts are not available for repair yet. So my question, it's late August 2016 and I live in dallas, tx with hot humid days for months, what is considered an appropriate time to resolve? and how is this not a concern and considered safe??? my irritation is that if I have a susceptible pipe bomb here, why isn't there an immediate corrective action happening?"

The dash is slit from the airbag module insert to the front vent which will cause the dash to fracture in the event of airbag deployment resulting in high speed shards being propelled into the cabin.

The dashboard has large cracks both in front of the instrument panel and around the airbag. This exact same problem has been reported by more than 4,000 GM truck owners. The cracking around the airbag are especially concerning, and likely pose a significant safety risk were the airbags to deploy. GM is apparently aware of this defect and fails to take responsibility for correcting the problem.
