Dash is cracking by the passenger airbag cover and I wory that it may become shrapnel if the airbag deploys.

The dashboard cracked on the passenger side of vehicle near the top left corner of the passenger side air bag. Dealership would fix the issue but only at full cost to me, even though I expressed the concern I have how if the airbag were to deploy the sharp edges of the cracked area may not allow the air bag to work properly. I.e. could puncture the airbag. Also shards of the dashboard could cause harm if airbag were to deploy

Dashboard around passenger airbag is splitting as many other are. In the event of an accident that would cause stress on the dash from abrupt airbag inflation, plastic could become shrapnel and cause serious injury or death.

I have a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 and the dash board is cracking around the passenger side air bag. I have taken this to my GM dealer and the service manager took photos and told me that he would get back to me but has not. I have made numerous attempts to try and get him to help me with getting this repaired through GM and he shows no concern. Vehicle has sustained to impact that would cause this.

I have a 2011 Silverado 1500 and about 6 months ago my dash around the passenger air bag started to crack. I now have 2 cracks and the area feels loose which worries me that in case of a accident with airbag deployment on the passanger side, that this could impair the safety and design for its purpose.

  • 50,000 miles
The truck had less than 50,000 miles when we noticed a crack in the dash running from the upper left corner of the air bag cover and the defroster vent. I know several other trucks with this same issue. It appears to be a design flaw. I went to the local dealer and he estimated it would take nearly $1,000 to fix. I wonder if this crack would be negatively influenced if the air bag ever inflates causing more damage or injury.

Myself as well as many others dash's are cracking randomly in our Chevrolet Silverado pickups. Mine is cracked just to the upper left of the passenger airbag. I have reached out to GM and they have acknowledged an issue have offered to pay $590 towards the repair. I am not satisfied with that and there are several other thousand people that have the same issue with the same results or worse. I would really like to see GM be held accountable for this as I believe this is an safety concern with the passenger airbag deploying in an emergency. There is a facebook page with several thousand members dedicated to this matter it is named "07-13 GM cracked dash safety hazard for all trucks"

The vhicle is normally kept in my garage when not in use. Photos could be privided but I do not know how to do it.
