Dashboard crack on the left-hand side of passenger airbag. And dashboard rattles on driver-side. Very concerned if in an accident the dashboard will send projectiles because it's so close to airbag.

Upon wiping my dashboard with a dry cloth(never used any products to clean, or treat the dashboard area) and I do not park vechile in direct sunlight.... I noticed 4 to 5 cracks in the dashboard area of both drivers side and passengers side...most concerning... that 2 of the cracks are around the passanger air bag located on the passenger side dashboard...this is unacceptable as a consumer of GM and a Chevy Silverado who purchased a vechile thats priced above $45,000. I believe this should be taken very seriously considering the location of these cracks and should be a recall by GM considering the fact that many people are experiencing the same issues.....

I was driving & heard a very loud noise but didn't know what it was till I was cleaning/vacuuming my vehicle the next day. I was cleaning the vehicle & the dashboard was very dirty so I was lightly cleaning it with a rag & the rag got stuck so when I checked what it was I noticed a very big crack. It also cracked by the airbag & I honestly feel like that is a hazard. It bothers me to think I'm paying over $40K for a vehicle that I chose to defend my family & might malfunction if I'm ever in an accident.

Radio volume and turn signal sound stopped even radio on. When turned completely off, phone symbol started flashing on radio screen and stayed on. Security alerts for seat belt, door open and key in ignition also not working. Has progressively gotten worse. Vehicle was stationary when first started and problem as continued while driving. When turned off the radio display will not go off even though turned off. Dealership has no clue what's wrong. Saw online where 2014 Silverado recalled for base radio problems that are similar to this problem (14V301000).

Cracked dash. Common issue with 2007-2013 from a quick search online. Cracked right at air bag so worried if air bag were to come out shards of plastic would deflate air bag or hurt passengers.

I purchased this vehicle new from crews chevroet in North charleston South Carolina. The vehicle has less than 12000 miles. Approximately two weeks ago for no apparent reason I discovered a crack in the dash near the passanger air bag. I took the vehicle to crews Chevrolet and the service person stated it was probably due to the sun. I purchased GM's major guard extended protection and eventhough the dash is not listed under items not covered I was told the dash is not covered under the extended warranty. I have contacted Chevrolet customer service and am scheduled to have the vehicle inspected again on 27 May 2017. This is definately a product defect or material defect. I have read on the internet all the other cracked dash issues with GM/Chevrolet. At what point is GM/Chevrolet going to admit this is a defect and customers will see a recall? this crack runs right at the corner of the passanger airbag and I feel this is a safety issue.

Passenger side dashboard is cracked between the airbag cover and the front of the dashboard top panel. It turns out this is a problem others have noticed on these models as well. My concern is the proximity to the airbag. Other owners have posted photos of larger cracks and holes in the dashboard in this location. I don't want it to cause an issue with airbag functionality were there to be an airbag deployment event. I don't know how long this had been cracked but it was first noticed by my wife on 5/13/2017.

The dash on my 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has cracked just above the airbag on the passenger side of the vehicle. To me this poses a safety concern should there be a collision causing the airbag to deploy where the crack may puncture the airbag. The vehicle was stationary, being parked just in front of my house when the crack occurred.
