THERE IS A 4" STRESS CRACK IN THE DASHBOARD JUST HEAD OF THE GAUGE CLUSTER WHICH DEVELOPED A WEEK AGO. MY CONCERN IS TWO FOLD 1) THE CRACK WILL INCREASE IN SIZE REDUCING THE VALUE OF THE VEHICLE, 2) IN A IMPACT SITUATION, THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE DASH MAY BE COMPROMISED ALLOWING PIECES OF PLASTIC TO BECOME PROJECTILES, POSSIBLY DAMAGING OCCUPANTS OR DEFLATING THE AIRBAGS THEREBY REDUCING THERE EFFECTIVENESS IN A CRASH.

THIS IS THE THIRD GM VEHICLE OF THIS YEAR MODEL RANGE THAT I HAVE OWNED. ALL 3 HAVE RESULTED IN CATASTROPHIC CRACKING OF THE DASH, ALL THREE IN EITHER EXACT, OR CLOSE TO EXACT LOCATIONS. THESE CRACKS ARE CONNECTING TO THE AIRBAG, AND CONNECTING TO THE INSTRUMENT PANEL RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE DRIVER FIELD OF VIEW. I HAVE POINTY SHARDS OF PLASTIC AND HOLES IN THE SIERRA I CURRENTLY OWN. I AM NO ENGINEER, HOWEVER I AM POSITIVE THAT IN THE EVENT OF AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT, OR A FORWARD IMPACT COLLISION THAT MYSELF AND/OR MY FAMILY WILL HAVE MUCH MORE TO WORRY ABOUT THAN JUST THE IMPACT. OUTSIDE OF OPERATIONAL USE, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY GENERAL MOTORS WOULD CONTINUE TO BALK ON ASSISTANCE PROVIDED TO THEIR CUSTOMERS. I LOVE GENERAL MOTORS TRUCKS, AND I NEVER WANT TO OWN ANYTHING DIFFERENT, BUT MY FAMILY BEING HARMED AND/OR THE CONSTANT EYESORE OF SUCH A NICE VEHICLE APPEARANCE BEING TAINTED IS EFFECTING MY OVERALL OPINION. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW MY FAMILY TO BE INJURED BY THE FAULTY DESIGN AND ENGINEERING OF THE INEVITABLE "SHATTERED DASH" OF THE GM'S THAT YOU GUYS HAVE COME TO KNOW OVER THE PAST 5 YEARS. IT IS ATROCIOUS AND AN ALL OUT SAFETY HAZARD.
