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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

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.

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%.

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.
