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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The dashboard is cracked beyond repair. It is cracked in decal different areas. This seems to be a safety issue. Would hate to get into an accident and airbags shoot plastic pieces of dash throughout the vehicle. Cracks appear while driving as well as after sitting.

Beginning of December 2015, noticed a dash crack over instrument panel behind steering wheel. Also small crack by passenger air bag. Contacted and took to ray Chevrolet. I expressed concern about crack by airbag--was told by service manager that it was probably not a safety issue and the amount that I had to pay was determined by a formula by GM. GM said there is a formula but local dealer has leeway on price. First offer was $320; second offer by dealer $200. GM says they can't help. Noticed on the internet, lots of complaints about this very issue. Crack by dash appears to be getting larger. Car is in excellent condition and has been well cared for. 57,000 miles.
