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.

Dash cover cracks present a potential safety hazard in the event of crash/collision with or without airbag deployment due to sharp flying debris. Dash is constructed of hard plastic that fractures in normal use/wear which results sharp and potentially dangerous projectiles.

Shortly after purchasing my 2010 Silverado a small crack appeared on the dash by the corner of the passenger air bag. A month or so later another crack developed above the instrument cluster that is now (years later) a foot in length. There is a 3rd crack developing. I have 3 friends with similar trucks and these cracks occurred in the identical spot on their dashs. It has to be a risk to the airbag, or in any front impact. These cracks are sharp and right in the driver and passengers face. After searching online I have discovered it is a widespread issue.

The dash has cracked on the passenger side of my 2008 GMC 3500 dually. The crack is in between the air bag and the windshield. The crack is about 1" to 1 1/2" long. The crack appeared while the truck was sitting outside.

The dashboard around the instrument cluster as well as the passenger side airbag has developed large cracks due to poor made products or poor manufacturing processes. Due to the explosive nature of the airbags as well as the location of the cracks on the dashboard, I fear the airbag will go off in a front end collision causing sharp plastic pieces from the dashboard to unnecessarily injure me and/ or my passengers.

Dash has cracked by passenger airbag and above the instrument panel. If airbags deploy it could send chards of fragmented plastic into the cab.

Cracks have formed along the dash board on both the driver and passenger side without any sort of event happening that would lead the cracks forming such as an accident, etc. The cracks on the passenger side are around the passenger airbag that seems to be an safety issues if the airbag deploys. The cracks lead to sharp edges that could either break off and cause sharp plastic pieces to fly at the passenger in the event of airbag deployment or the sharp edges may puncture the airbag causing it to not perform as needed to protect the passenger. After talking to the Chevrolet body shop and reading several other complaints, this issue is common not only in the Silverado but according to the body shop manager, it stretches across all GM platforms such as the escalade.

The interior dash panel on my Silverado 1500, 4X4, crew cab has cracked behind the instrument cluster causing a loud rattle when going over bumps. The dash panel has also started to crack at the passenger side air bag location and I feel this could be a very dangerous situation if the airbag were to deploy, causing plastic dash parts to dislodge and hit occupants.

Spare tire hoist bracket broke and spare tire was swinging loosely under rear of truck. Further investigation revealed several stress cracks in bracket surrounding the bolt hole. If tire bracket would have broke off tire would drop to pavement and become a road hazard. Sources at dealer indicated they had no bulletins on this item but knew of some people who had lost their spare tires. I still have the parts.

The front driver side window regulator cable frayed and had to be replaced. The window has always been used in a normal fashion but should not have worn so soon. Being defective so soon made it very difficult to locate a replacement regulator and took me two weeks to locate one that was not special order.
