5/26/2016 - CLARKSVILLE, TN
MY TRUCK HAS DEVELOPED A CRACK ON THE DASH, STARTING AT THE TOP LEFT-HAND CORNER OF THE FRONT PASSENGER AIRBAG. IT HAS CRACKED ENTIRELY THROUGH TO THE DASH TRIM PIECE ROUGHLY 3-4 INCHES AWAY. NOT ONLY IS IT A TREMENDOUS EYE-SORE, THAT MOST OF MY PASSENGERS NOTICE AND COMMENT ON... BUT HAS ME EXTREMELY WORRIED ABOUT SAFETY. IF THIS VEHICLE WERE TO BE IN A COLLISION AND THE AIRBAG IS DEPLOYED, I AM SURE THAT FRAGMENTS OF PLASTIC WOULD BE PROPELLED THROUGH THE INTERIOR OF THE VEHICLE AS THE AIRBAG FIRED. I HAVE CONTACTED MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP, AND THEY STATE IT IS NOT COVERED, AND HAVE QUOTED ME A REPAIR COST OF JUST OVER $1,000. THIS DEFECT IN THE DASH PIECE SEEMS TO BE A RECURRING INCIDENT IN A LOT OF 2007-2013 GM TRUCKS. MY DASH POPS AND CREAKS WHILE DRIVING, AND I CAN'T AFFORD THE INSANE REPLACEMENT COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS REPAIR. GM NEEDS TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THIS SITUATION.

SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. ALL MY DOOR LOCKS REPEATEDLY LOCK AND UNLOCK, ALL MY EMERGENCY CHECKS AND SERVICE LIGHT GO ON AND OFF, MY GAUGES ALL DROP TO ZERO, AND MOST RECENTLY MY VEHICLE HAS SHUT DOWN WHILE I'M DRIVING IT. BUT IT HAPPENS RANDOMLY. SOMETIMES IT'S WORSE THAN OTHERS. I RECENTLY HAD TO STEER UP ONTO A CURB BECAUSE I WAS DRIVING AND MY GAUGES DROPPED TO ZERO AND MY ENGINE COMPLETELY CUT OUT. AND THAT WAS AFTER MY AIRBAGS SHUT OFF AND MY LIGHTS AND DOOR LOCKS FLICKERED REPEATEDLY. MAYBE THERE'S A SHORT IN A CIRCUIT OR WIRE OR MAYBE IT'S MY ALTERNATOR BUT SERVICES AT A DEALERSHIP ARE HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME FINDING IT. AND AL THESE THINGS HAPPEN WHETHER I'M DRIVING OR STATIONARY. RAIN OR DRY. DOESN'T MATTER. BUT IT'S CLEARLY UNSAFE. AND I HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO DRIVE IT BECAUSE IT'S MY ONLY MEANS FOR TRANSPORTATION.
