The dashboard at the airbag is cracked. This was noticed upon entering the car July 27, 2016. This was not there prior as the dash noticeably rattles at the sight of the crack. The service manager at Chevrolet stated this is a known issue with the sun causing the plastic dashboard to disintegrate.

I own a 2013 Chevy Avalanche. I have replaced all 4 chrome door handles due to them pulling away from the door where they attach at the rear portion.. this is a known and well documented problem with the body style. Today I had to pay to replace the drivers door handle for the 2nd time since I have owned the vehicle. I have now replaced 3 under warranty and had to pay for the other two. I am sure that this will continue to happen over the life of the vehicle and I don't feel I should have to pay every time an obvious manufacturers defect occurs.
