2011 GMC Sierra 1500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Sierra 1500 8-cyl

  • 50,000 miles


A crack has appeared on the top left corner of where the airbag is. Failure in this area should be a cause for concern and during airbag deployment, this weak point could be an area of projectile. A number of other vehicle owners of the same vehicle have the same issue, and this should be considered for a recall due to safety concerns....updated 03-10-16

Sierra 1500

  • 40,000 miles
My 2011 GMC Sierra had 40000 miles on it and the dashboard above the airbag has cracked. I am afraid of what my happen to the dash if the airbag deploys. The dash may splinter and become projectiles in the vehicle. I have heard this is a very common issue and 1500+ people have signed a petition about it. Please look into having GM recall these vehicles before someone is severely injured. Thank you
