THE DASH IN MY 2011 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500 HAS A CRACK IN THE DASH AT THE TOP LEFT HAND CORNER OF THE PASSENGER AIR BAG. MY OPINION IS THAT THIS COULD CAUSE A SAFETY ISSUE. EITHER THE AIR BAG COULD FAIL TO WORK PROPERLY OR POTENTIALLY BE DAMAGED. CHEVROLET HAS KNOWN ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND HAS CHOSEN NOT TO VOLUNTARILY TAKE CARE OF IT.
