Takata recall -I found no record of recall but passenger airbag warning light is on as well as cracks on the dashboard around where the airbags would deploy. Heated seats malfunction and turn on and are unable to be turned off. Fuel tank mileage to empty unreliable. Gauge can be at quarter tank and say 50 miles to empty and stall due to being out of gas. Gas gauge issue changes while driving...on road trips the gas gauge will suddenly change and say there is more gas in it than there actually is.

Large crack in dash at corner of passenger air bag cover appeared in Sept 2013. Another large crack appeared over steering wheel column in August 2014. I have researched and found that this is an inherent defect in several GM models since at least 2007 and that GM may offer to pay half of the replacement fee. I am concerned that, if the passenger air bag were to deploy, the plastic would shatter at the cracked area and act as shrapnel.

Noticed a crack on dash by airbag system shortly after purchase. Was told by dealership that I would have to pay almost $1,000 to repair even though vehicle was purchased as GM certified. As of yesterday, the crack is much larger and appears to be separating at corner of airbag assembly area on passenger side of dash. This has to be considered a safety concern. Please advise.
