The plastic around the passanger airbag has started cracking and continues to spread to other areas. I feel this could make for a bad situation with shards of sharp platic being throw at the passanger if the airbag where to be deployed.

My dash cracked 5 years ago, I replaced with new from dealer $1000 cost and it is now cracked again. In addition I have an outstanding recall on airbags that have been recalled but GM does not have parts to replace. So now I could have shrapnel from airbag and shrapnel from my new $1000 dash. Wow GM, get it together and get the airbags in stock and stop using inferior materials on $1000 dash boards.

My dashboard has several cracks exposing the electrical components within the dash. These cracks are in various places across the entire dash. I purchased this vehicle brand new and it is currently in excellent condition (with the exception of the dash) I am concerned that if the air bag were to be deployed the plastic dashboard would explode and expose my passengers or myself to additional hazards within the vehicle. I am also concerned that the electrical system in my dash board is now exposed to additional hazards due to the additional exposure to the sun. I am filing this incident with the hopes that it will help a recall to be issued. I noticed the first small crack in 2011. I have kept an eye on it over the years and as of today, there are exposed openings in the dash in several places. Until today, I thought that I might have just been unlucky, however after doing some research online, it is apparent that I am not alone, and this should be recalled under a manufacturers defect. Thank you for taking the time to file this report on my behalf. Feel free to email me with additional information as needed. Best regards.

The upper dash panel cracked after being parked outside. I thought someone broke in and hit it with something, it is cracked down center of instrument panel toward windshield then across to air bag compartment. My fear is that if the air bag that is pending recall information passenger air bag deploys and passengers could be hit by plastic shrapnel. Another concern is a child gets hand or arm injured by simply pressing too hard on flimsy dashboard. I am a 100% service connected combat veteran and need to sell truck to purchase a van for transportation. The cracked dash is hindering the sale at a decent price. The dealer said repair is around $1200 and I don't have that kind of money laying around anyway if I am unable to sell it.
