The upper dash may crack, most commonly on vehicles in warm climates and exposed to a lot of sunlight. The common repair is to replace the upper instrument trim panel. Information on a technical service bulletin or extended warranty is not available at this time.

just noticed dashboard cracked in two places - above speedometer from defrost to hump and from defrost to left corner of passenger airbag. Has GM issued a recall or service bulletin?
