problem #57

Jan 012013

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 40,000 miles


Dash has several cracks through out, above the glove box and now it's above the radio. It started out with a small crack above the glove box and continuing in other locations. A couple of the cracks happen while the truck was parked.

The dash in my 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has a crack in the dash at the top left hand corner of the passenger air bag. My opinion is that this could cause a safety issue. Either the air bag could fail to work properly or potentially be damaged. Chevrolet has known about this issue and has chosen not to voluntarily take care of it.

- Jacksonville, FL, USA

problem #55

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 120,000 miles
Dashboard cracking and breaking around airbag. Possible plastic shrapnel in event of airbag deployment. In my time of ownership exposure to elements has always been limited with use of covered parking or sunshade. Chemicals have never been introduced to the affected area.

- Fleming Island, FL, USA

problem #54

Apr 122016

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 87,000 miles


Dashboard has cracked at upper left hand corner of passenger air bag and above driver side instrument panel. Crack at air bag is worrisome in event that it may effect air bag deployment.

- Ocean Springs, MS, USA

problem #53

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 84,000 miles
The dash is cracking in two locations, at passenger airbag and above the instrument cluster for no apparent reason. Vehicle is in excellent condition otherwise. There may be a safety issue due to the proximity to the passenger airbag.

- Largo, FL, USA

problem #52

  • 62,500 miles
I own a 2011 Silverado. It has the cracks in the passenger airbag area, and above the gauge cluster. Of course after seeing all the other cracked dashes. It really makes me unhappy that this is not already a recall or taken care of. One day I got in my vehicle and saw both cracks, and it happened 2 days after someone told me it is just a matter of time before it cracks. I really would like it replaced.

- Cedar Falls, IA, USA

My dashboard cracked while driving down the road this morning. On the highway.

- Owensboro, KY, USA

problem #50

Feb 042017

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 52,000 miles
A crack appeared in the dash causing a separation in the section behind the airbag I am concerned the pieces could cause injury if airbag is deployed.

- North Little Rock, AR, USA

problem #49

Dashboard crack at the top left front corner of the air bag. The vehicle was stationary in my driveway overnight.

problem #47

Feb 012016

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 60,000 miles


Dashboard cracks at the passenger side air bag. This was repaired under warranty in 2014. The dash has cracked again in the same place. Should the passenger side air bag deploy, I feel it could be a serious safety issue.

- Pace, FM, USA

problem #46

Nov 272016

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 39,000 miles
The dashboard has cracked on the passenger side of the vehicle, running from the top left corner of the passenger side airbag to the right edge of the central air vent. I am concerned that this crack could jeopardize the efficacy of the passenger airbag should deploy, whether the crack prevents the airbag from fully opening and/or puncturing the airbag once it does open. Furthermore, shards of the dashboard could cause harm if the airbag does deploy. I am not certain when the crack first developed, but noticed it earlier today.

- Waco, TX, USA

problem #45

Oct 032015

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 57,000 miles
The dashboard has cracked in 2 separate places due to cheap supplies. One of the cracks is near the airbag so if the airbag were to deploy parts of the broken dashboard would be thrown into the passenger and cause injury.

- Brandon, MS, USA

problem #44

  • 69,000 miles
Dash cracks at passenger side air bag is this a problem if the bag went off will the broken piece of dash board go with it. Also loose body side moldings had repaired under warranty and came off again luckily it didn't come off while driving.

- Lakeland, FL, USA

problem #43

Oct 252016

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 95,000 miles
Driver side inside door handle broke off while parked as I was exiting vehicle.. inspection of handle showed a crack on the handle where it broke. It appears to be a defect of manufacture and design. The repair required the complete replacement of the driver side door panel at considerable expense. The potential for safe egress from the vehicle in an emergency is of concern.

- Hollister, CA, USA

I have a 2011 Chevy Silverado extended cab and after 37,000 miles of driving my truck I notice three cracks on the dashboard. One on the driver side and two on the passenger side right above the recalled air bag. I have a friend with the same model and he told me the same thing about his truck. He has two cracks in the dash. I have ask the dealer about any recalls on the dashboard for cracking and they said that's a normal thing that happens on trucks. Really! I spend $28,000 on a truck and now I am told if I want my dash fixed I have to pay for that! this is very concerning to me because of the safety bag. What will happen if the passenger bag deploys and pieces of dashboard go flying with the force of the air bag or if the cracks itself deflates the air bag. I hope a recall is done soon for the dashboards!
