Takata recall. The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The contact stated that the dashboard had cracks that progressed from the middle to the front passenger side of the vehicle. The cracks could affect the safety of the air bag components. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 16V381000 (air bags), but the contact did not receive a notification. A dealer had not been contacted yet to diagnose and repair the vehicle. The manufacturer was notified years later. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000. VIN tool confirms parts not available.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 20,000 miles
My dashboard has multiple cracks in the dashboard, and my vehicle stays in a garage with the windows cracked to prevent overheating. I have had these cracks since my vehicle was under warranty and GM will not replace it. If I want it fixed I have to pay out of pocket. I have major concerns with the dash turning to shrapnel if the airbag deploys. My vehicle is under the takata recall, as well. The dealership has no concerns with this issue. They have no idea when they can fix my airbag.

The truck was sitting parked in the driveway and my neighbor noticed that the lights and wipers came on (truck was not on, no keys were in it, nobody was in it or near it!). smoke then began to billow out from under the hood and a fire started. My neighbor was able to disconnect the battery and put out the fire. I had the truck towed to a garage where they told me that the fuse panel caught on fire. They called GM and was told there was no recall for the part. Dealing with insurance now.

The dashboard is cracked above the airbag and above the radio. The vehicle has less than 60,000 miles and according to Chevrolet is out of warranty. This is a safety issue due to the fact that if I am in a wreck the dash could puncture the airbag or even another passenger.
