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.

My dash has large gaps/cracks in the dashboard. These range from the windshield all the way the front piece of trip. The dash is completely separated. Right in the center of the dash, around the airbags, and the other smaller parts or the dash are cracked too. I use a sun shield, so that is not the case. My daughter and I have both cut our hands on the dash. She was so surprised when she got in the truck that she asked if I had a wreck, and then ran her hand over the dash and cut her palm ad two fingers. I also cut my hand while trying to clean it so that stuff does not drop down the crack, such as dirt or dust, can't that start a fire with the wires and the heater down there? another thing is my vents don't wok like they are suppose to. The dash is so broken you can hear sounds of plastic vibrating and blowing in the vents. This directly effects the air flow to, it's like its not even connected. This all happened while the vehicle was in the garage stationary not running.

Dash is cracked around the air bag. Cracked in three places, if in a crash dash may explode into sharp pieces and cause more damage. Scared the dash will crumble in a crash and not provide any needed support.

Sierra 8-cyl Diesel

  • 97,000 miles
A driver turned left into me as I was going through a green lighted intersection. He thought he could make it. I was the only person in my vehicle, so I understand that the passenger air bag would not deploy. What I don't understand is that the drivers air bag did not deploy. The impact totaled my truck. The contact was on the front passenger side, so maybe that is why. Just thought I would report this in case there is a problem with GM air bags.

The wire that connects the airbag "person in the seat" switch breaks when you put (slide) the seat all the way back. They know this and have not recalled the truck! they will not and are not going to pay to fix it. The airbag will not deploy when needed, is this a safety recall?
