Dashboard is cracked at both corners of the passenger air bag as well as over the steering wheel dash (plastic used to make these dashes is the cause of the cracking in 2007-2013 GM and Chevrolet trucks). I am extremely concerned that in the event of an accident; either the cracked plastic will cause the air bag to puncture (serious life safety concern) or the pieces of cracked plastic will be projectiles and possible be harmful to all passengers of the vehicle. Apparently GM has stated that the plastic used to make these dashboards is the cause of all of these cracks however they will not issue a recall. There are class action suits being looked into but the 2007 - 2009 vehicles are out of this group because of the bankruptcy that GM filed. I do not feel that the government bail out and bankruptcy should relieve them of the life safety issue these cracked dashes are causing. There is an entire face book page with 3,323 members that have been unable to get GM to replace their dashes. This is completely unacceptable. Someone must have to be killed in an accident before they will issue a recall.

Airbag light is on. Dealer finds R/F impact sensor. Code-B008439. Chevy-GMC-states 3 year 10,000 mile warranty with vehicle has expired.mileage on vehicle is 43,592. Cost will be around $400. I find this is a safety issue with a factory part. Chevy-GMC should take care of this issue. It's all about safety!. thank-you.

Front dash on the vehicle has cracked around the air bags. This is a safety concern. If the air bags deploy, the cracked plastic will act as shrapnel, causing serious damage.

I noticed cracks opening near the front passenger airbag area and on the top of speedometer cluster. Contacted the GM and I was told a series of excuses such as: "your warranty is over", "you bought the car used ( I bought it from a GM dealer under the pre-owned warranty)", or "maybe you used products that crack the plastic!" after a brief research I found out tens of thousands of complaints about GM made vehicles with the same problem. The crack open at the same exact spots, down to the millimeter, and it happen in the brand new cars as well as the older ones. It is clear that this is a manufacturer defective item, and result of a wrong design. GM does not replace the part unless we pay for it. They are not concerned that parts could fly into the cabin as a result of the air bag deployments and refuse to address the issue. Our cars loose also their value with a defective/broken dash board. The funniest excuse by GM was: "oh, the dash parts are made in Mexico! you know how the mexicans are!"

It appears as though there have been several people affected by cracked dashboard on gms. The major concern is that this design flaw will obstruct the airbags. My car is no different. I'm have two cracks in my dash similar to the multitude of others complaining about the same thing. The dash is continuous and extremely expensive for consumers to eat the cost of this design flaw.

In April of 2013 I took my GMC into dealership because of the crack that started above my instrument panel and was traveling toward my airbag. The dealer said they were aware of the issue and that GM had repaired some but was no longer doing so. He also said that if they replaced the dash with a new one, it would do the same thing. The crack has continued to travel and now my airbag panel is raised on the dash. I contacted GM and they offered to split the cost of the repair at $400-$500 with no warranty on the repair. They agreed that it is a safety issue. My interior door latches also began peeling which left sharp edges of plastic (?)-my daughter sliced her finger opening the passenger side door from the inside. GM at first refused to replace them in April of 2013 but as of today, offered to replace them at no cost to me.

Crack in dash behind the steering wheel to the left of the hump. Was told that it could compromise the airbag. Needs to be a recall on this, as I see that many, many other people have this same problem.

problem #17

  • 75,000 miles
My dash cracked and separated right where the dash meets the airbag. My concern is about the safety during a collision or airbag deployment from sharp plastic exposed due to the cracks in the dash cutting the airbag or shards of plastic becoming projectiles potentially causing injury to occupants. I can provide pictures if needed.
