There are cracks on the dashboard connected to the airbag. I'm concerned this may be a safety hazard that could send shrapnel if airbags deploy like the recent takata recall. It started with one small crack and has developed into three across the dashboard. The largest around ten inches long. This seems to be a prevalent issue with this and similar GM makes and models but I did not find a recall or service bulletin on the issue. I contacted GMC and they do not offer any assistance outside of warranty.

Dash is cracking around air bag leading to safety concerns if air bag deploys with sharp plastic pieces flying. I will install the third dash in the truck due to the cracking to prevent injuries in case of an accident.

I was driving and my service air bags light has come on the screen and it is staying lit. There has been no accidents no fire. It just came on. I see there was a recall on this a while ago. I would like to know if my vehicle falls under this recall?

I have a 2007 GMC Sierra that I filed a complaint about before because the airbags deployed when I hit a small pothole. After GMC fixed vehicle they assured me it was safe to drive because they fixed the overly sensitive sensor. I was driving the vehicle home in September of 2010 and the side air bags deployed again. I still have vehicle while GMC decides what they should do to fix the problem. Really? I hope they realize why they needed a bailout.
