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.

Takata recall: Per dealership, 8/12/16 unable to make appointment to fix the recall number #49152. They have no idea when the parts will be in. Says it could tke up to one year!!!! we were in an accident with this vehicle. The truck was sandwiched between two cars, the airbag did not deploy at 35 mph., he was injured. After vehicle came back from bodyshop with $7000 worth of damage fixed, airbag light came on and has stayed on. We use this truck for our contracting business, so is it safe like GM recall letter states" I called GM back on July 1st, 2016, asked if there was a takata recall on this truck, I was told no. I told them the airbag light was on so why not recall based on other 2007 trucks? part 573 safety recall report given to the NHTSA by GM clearly shows that all 2007 GMC Sierra were to be recalled in area B, which is where I live.. high humidity. Memo was submitted May 27th, 2016. I just got my recall letter yesterday, August 11th. When I called GM to complain about that, and ask why the delay, I was hung up on. I want justice for airbags that do not deploy when they should.. what about we folk? there are many of us.the airbag light is still on< and now there are no parts to fix the problem. Our mechanic says when the light is on, the bags will not work. Great. No rental car from GM and no way to fix the problem. Should we not go to work" I doubt enterprise would like a contractor to use their rental truck as a "real" work truck like we do. Hence the problem.

The dash board of my vehicle has cracks in it. More and more cracks are beginning to develop over the airbag. I am worried about the airbag deploying with sharp plastic pieces pointing at it. I think this is a hazard to all drivers. Every GM truck/Tahoe from 2007-2013 (that I have seen) have these ugly and dangerous cracks in them.

I have cracks on my dashboard of my truck. Both on the drivers side and passanger. I'm afraid that if I have an accident that peices of the plastic could harm me and my grandchild. Also could the cracks get bigger and form a hole in my dash? that does not seem very safe.

Cracks around air bag in dash passenger side, sharp plastic parts could injure occupants in case of air bag deployment. This is common on most 07 GM pickups. The dealers will not repair this.. the plastic is brittle and has sharp edges.

There are cracks on the dashboard connected to the airbag. I'm concerned this may be a safety hazard that could send shrapnel if airbags deploy like the recent takata recall. It started with one small crack and has developed into three across the dashboard. The largest around ten inches long. This seems to be a prevalent issue with this and similar GM makes and models but I did not find a recall or service bulletin on the issue. I contacted GMC and they do not offer any assistance outside of warranty.

Dash is cracking around air bag leading to safety concerns if air bag deploys with sharp plastic pieces flying. I will install the third dash in the truck due to the cracking to prevent injuries in case of an accident.
