I am filing a complaint due to a safety concern about my passenger airbag on my Chevy. There is a crack on my dash where the airbag is stored creating a safety concern in case of an accident. The pressure from the airbag can make my dash a projectile killing passengers in the car. I have attempted to discuss this with GM/Chevy but they don't want to recognize their faults. This is an issue that many Chevy/GM customers are having. I have pictures of dashes with the cracks in the same place each time. Unfortunately many of these customers have attempted to discuss this concern with GM only to be turned away.

The dash around the airbag is cracked. This is very common on 2007-2013 GM vehicles. It is clearly a manufacturers defect, considering nine times out of ten they are broken. The dash is cracked to the point where if the airbag went off, I would not feel safe, in fear of shrapnel coming from the dash being in front of the inflating air bags. Local dealer offered no fix, aside from an over $1,000 out of pocket repair. This is unacceptable.

Vehicle was involved in head on collision that totaled it. Other vehicle was an older model van, do not know extent of damages to it. My concern is the air bags did not deploy was told by GM that crash did not meet criteria for deployment!!!!! a head on collision at 50 mph that totaled 2500 series Chevy truck. Hard for me to believe I now own a 2008 Chevy 1500 series, do I need to concerned?

Service airbag light came on, looked in owners manual and it advised to get it serviced. I called the local Chevy dealer who advised me just to drive it, "that's common" I was told. Far cry from the hazards the book explains. Is there a recall on the 2007? not impressed!
