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 have owned the truck since new. In the last year the dash started cracking right above the passenger airbag. During the last month the crack has extended to the windshield

My dash was fine on 6-10-15, when got in it on the morning of 6-11-15 the dash was cracked by the airbag. The vehicle is 5 years old but only has 54,000 miles. I am the only owner and it has been well maintained. This seems to be a very frequent problem that is occurring with Chevrolet vehicles. See the following site: Https://www.facebook.com/groups/gmdashcrack/"fref=nf this appears to be a flaw in the quality of materials used in these vehicles. Not only does it take away from the appearance and value of the vehicle, it is also a safety concern. Will the airbag still work properly? if in an accident will there be flying pieces of plastic because of the flawed cracked equipment" this should be something that GM takes care of for its customers 100%.

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.

About two years into owning this truck, (purchased brand new from dealer), the dashboard cracked at the corner of the passenger side airbag. There was no incident which caused the dashboard to crack. Nothing hit it, no accident, etc. This is a potential hazard and it seems to be a recurring problem for many Chevrolet owners. I took it in to the dealer and they said it wasn't covered by any warranty. How is it okay for GM to know about a defect with many of their vehicles and not have to assume responsibility for fixing it??

Right after I bought the truck in 2010 I notice right off my brakes weren't working right.so I got in touch with the dealership and they told me to bring it in I took the truck in and they had one of their employee to take it for a drive around town he came back and said nothing was wrong but I still had the problem so icalled them back again and then they told me to get in touch with General Motors so icalled them and talk to 2 different people there and then General Motors called ramey Chevrolet in richland va and they told general motor that where welive in the mountains that it would cause the brakes to do that but the only mountain I have to cross is the one going to the dealership but it not a high elevation to climb to where I would have to use my brakes alot and this is not the only problem I have had out of my truck they had to put some sensors on the motor because the truck just up and quit on me coming home one evening and I have had to have some new rubber seals put around the doors due to water coming in and causing my floor board to rust out and I have all my paper work on the work I have done on it my truck is suppose to be still under warranty and this has all happen in the first year I own the truck sincerely.

Total fog up of windshield and all windows. This only occurs below freezing as noted by the information center warning of the possibility of freezing roads. The yellow A/C on light in the fan speed control knob is not on, and when the A/C button is pushed the yellow A/C on light flashes three times and goes out. There is no configuration that will activate the A/C and thus mitigate the fog! in speaking with the service manager at the dealer I am told that this is a common problem with these models as there is no way to turn the A/C on manualy and that below freezing the A/C is automaticly selected off by the sensors! it turns out that the A/C button only serves to shut off the A/C if desired. The only operational way to work around this is to turn the defog full hot open the windows and pull over until a viewing hole can be cleared. This clearly is a systemic safety problem with these models!

The air conditioner will not come on to clear window of fog below 40 degrees. This is dangerous and has caused me to almost go off road as no visibility present. The windows will fog up so quickly and the defroster can not clear windshield fast enough.the air conditioner is automatically controlled instead of manually.
