6/20/2016 - HUDSON, FL
CRACKING ON THE DASHBOARD OF A VERY WELL KEPT LOW MILEAGE TRUCK. WORRIED ABOUT SAFETY AROUND PASSENGER AIR BAG AS WELL AS THE QUALITY OF THE VEHICLE IN GENERAL. A SUNSHADE HAS BEEN USED SINCE DAY ONE AND THE TRUCK HAS NEVER BEEN OFF-ROAD OR IN A POSITION TO WHERE THIS SHOULD HAPPEN. GM SHOULD BE HELD LIABLE AND FIX THIS PROBLEM. NOW A $49,000 TRUCK SEEMS VERY CHEAP AND AM WORRIED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF PASSENGERS.
