Cracked dashboard. My vehicle is a 2010 with 43,000 miles and is stored in a garage most of the time (not a daily driver). Dashboard cracked while sitting in the garage. No extreme changes in temperature as garage is heated.

Dash cracked under warranty and was replaced immediately by the dealer (howard bentley in albertville, al). Replacement dash has cracked again. My concern is this is a known issue with certain GM models and in the event of a crash the pieces of compromised dash will become a projectile inside the vehicle.

Cracked dash left top corner of passenger air bag area. Same as everyone else on here. Replaced drivers side seat motor at$132. Replaced drivers side rear window regulator at $165 with labor at $60. Replaced both door handles at $89 with labor at $60. Had to rent a car for 4 days in the amount of $285. This all happened in Nov. And Dec. Of 2015. None of which is covered by my extended warranty purchased from dealer. Also the paint is bubbling around the rear cargo light. Also not covered under my "paint warranty". at the time of all this happening we had less than 65,000 miles on the vehicle.

Multiple cracks on dashboard. The first two (2) cracks appeared about 3 years ago (truck only three years old at that time) located on passenger side of dash - above where glove box ends. Just found another crack this past weekend when cleaning dash. (truck is now 6 yrs old - just finished paying it off!!) this one is located on left side of driver side, about half way back. My concern is that the dash is now compromised. In the event the airbags are deployed, my concerns are that the airbags may not come out, come out improperly due to the cracks, or that there may be additional dash parts becoming a projectile that could cause more harm. In reading this site it seems that this is a known problem that should be addressed before it causes a major problem. This truck has been kept in partial shade and has always had a sunscreen in place when not in use.
