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.

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 dashboard on my 2010 Silverado 1500 has cracks on it. Because of these cracks it is a concern that the airbags will be affected if deployed.

Dash is cracked around passenger airbag and above gauge cluster. This is a hazard for airbag deployment. This needs to be considered for recall as it has impacted many of the models during specific date range starting in 2007.

My dash on my truck has cracks in the dash by the airbag and above the gauge cluster. I am worried if Chevrolet does not do a voluntary recall on this there is a chance that the airbag may not function properly.

I have cracks on my passenger side airbag, and over my instrument cluster. This is a well known issue, and I'm sure that if my airbag went off, the plastic would become shrapnel.

Three cracks around the passenger airbag. First cracked appeared about 60,000 miles followed by the next smaller one then around 85,000 the larger one. This appears to be a common problem that GM is aware of but is not accepting responsibility for the potential safety hazard.

The dashboard is cracked in 3 places around the airbag. This could potentially be a safety hazard if the airbag were to deploy sending projectile pieces of plastic towards the occupants of the vehicle. The cracks in the dashboard formed due to an obvious design flaw. There was no incident that caused the cracks just normal driving.

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.
