Front dashboard has a crack in it. Crack on plastic dash just appeared overnight for no reason. It is located almost directly in front of the passenger area. Have checked several other vehicles within the same year model,2- GMC Sierra pick ups, 1- Avalanche, 2 Silverado. Dash makes a rattling sound and is very distracting. All have the same open crack almost exactly at the same spot on dashboard. I know there is a defect.

My dash has cracks near the airbag and I have a concern with safety during a collision or airbag deployment from sharp plastic exposed due to the cracks in the dash cutting the airbag or shards of plastic becoming projectiles potentially causing injury to occupants.

My rear passenger door does not lock/unlock. Huge safety hazard. The door can be opened while the vehicle is traveling 70 mph. This is also a security issue. I can lock the vehicle with the key fob only to learn that the rear door will not lock. If I lock it manually, then it will not open with the key fob. This is a huge inconvenience, I have to unlock it manually. The dealer stated that this is a very common problem. Internet research shows that this has happened to thousands of people. This should be a recall!!!
