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.

Cracked dashboard the dashboard of my GMC Sierra as a vertical crack running directly next to the passenger side airbag. This happened suddenly while at a stand still. My concerns is what happens should my truck endure a crash. I worry that the broken dashboard could interfere with the performance of my airbag.

The dash formed a crack starting from the passenger airbag overnight. It continues to grow daily. I am worried if the airbag was to deploy it would cause the dash to break, shooting pieces throughout the truck.

The dashboard suddenly cracked near the passenger side airbag. It appears to be in the corner of the airbag where, if deployed could possibly damage the airbag causing a malfunction which could result in serious injury or death. As of now, I am not aware of any recalls for this however, I have found an article where GM is not claiming responsibility for cracked dashboards.

Passenger and back seat in the crew cab are coming off of the brackets. I took my car to dealership and they could find a problem. I ggogled problem and there are many customers with the same issues. The seats are coming away frombthe clamps or bracket to hold the seats secure. This is unsafe. I have a rattling andbclick clacking sound while drive in motion over rough roads or bumps.
