I bought my 2011 Silverado 1500 with 8,000 miles on it from the dealership Oct 2012. While under a bumper to bumper warranty my dash busted at the air bag. I reported this to the dealer the truck had around 16,000 - 18,000 miles on it. I was told the dash was made that way so no claim was made. Since then my dash has only gotten worse and worse. Now that its no longer under the bumper to bumper warranty they admit it needs to be replaced at my cost! I'm am so fed up with GM's product. I have spent the past 4 years trying to get my dash replaced at their cost. Its clearly nothing I did wrong to cause it. I have found hundreds on complaints about the same problem.. there have been several lawsuits that's been taking out on them for this issue. "if I get in a wreck the passenger air bag will send sharp plastic into my passengers face.. my farther has a 2010 Silverado 1500 with 50,000 miles on it and his is also busted the same way at the air bag. This is a huge know quality / safety issue that needs to be immediately recalled at GM's cost. I paid $28,000 for my new truck and less then a year its falling apart..

The dashboard has cracked in 2 separate places due to cheap supplies. One of the cracks is near the airbag so if the airbag were to deploy parts of the broken dashboard would be thrown into the passenger and cause injury.

Dashboard crack next to airbag (upper right corner) and over instrument panel. I am concerned that in a wreck where the airbag deploys the dash will become a deadly projectile. The cracks occurred without any undo stress on the dashboard. The vehicle was not in motion when it occurred.

To your company offering to put a used engine in a used vehicle. Then purchasing a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and having numerous electrical issues. You had asked me to give your dealership a second chance to correct the problem with my 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. With the amount of unprofessional demeanor that I experienced prior I decided to give your company a second chance to rectify the problem.
