Summary:
I PICKED UP MY STEPDAUGHTER & HER FRIENDS FROM THE MALL. MY MOM WAS IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. MY STEPDAUGHTER & HER FRIENDS GOT IN THE 2ND ROW & 3RD ROW SEATS. WE SHUT THE DOOR & DROVE OFF. THE REAR PASSENGER DOOR MESSAGE CAME ON & THE LOCKS STARTED CLICKING. I PULLED OVER TO CHECK THE DOOR & IT WAS AJAR. I OPENED THE DOOR, SHUT IT & MADE SURE IT WAS CLOSED THEN DROVE OFF. THE WHOLE WAY HOME THE DOOR KEPT CLICKING AS IF IT WERE TRYING TO CLOSE & THE LOCKS WERE TRYING TO CATCH. THIS HAPPENED SEVERAL MONTHS AGO AND I’VE BEEN TRYING TO GET THIS PROBLEM FIXED EVER SINCE. EVERY DAY THE DOORS CLICK, BECAUSE THE DOOR IS NOT COMPLETELY CLOSED. I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP WERE I’VE BEEN GETTING WORK DONE, BECAUSE A YEAR INTO HAVING THE VEHICLE THE MOTORS ON BOTH DOORS HAD TO BE REPLACED. THIS IS MY 2ND YEAR GOING INTO MY 3RD YEAR OF HAVING THE VAN; HOWEVER THIS IS THE 2ND TIME I’VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE DOORS. I DON’T CARRY PASSENGERS, BECAUSE I’M AFRAID THE DOORS ARE GOING TO POP OPEN & SOMEONE WILL FALL OUT! THOUGH I GOT THIS PROBLEM FIXED BEFORE, THE PARTS ARE NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY & THEY ARE CHARGING ME $100 JUST TO LOOK AT THE DOORS & ASSESS THE PROBLEM. DEPENDING ON WHAT’S GOING ON I MAY BE CHARGED $800 TODAY TO FIX THIS PROBLEM & READING THE COMPLAINTS ON THIS CAR TODAY SOOTHES THE FACT THAT I’M NOT THE ONLY 1 HAVING THIS PROBLEM WITH MY DOORS; HOWEVER, SOMEONE NEEDS TO DO MORE THAN HAVE US COMPLAIN. THESE VEHICLES NEED TO BE RECALLED & FIXED ASAP, BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT BADLY OR KILLED! *TR

Summary:
WHILE DROPPING MY KIDS OFF AT SCHOOL ON JANUARY 26, 2010, MY DAUGHTER CLOSED OUR DRIVER SIDE REAR SLIDING DOOR OF OUR 2007 CHEVY UPLANDER. THE WHOLE DOOR FELL OFF IN HER HANDS. WE TOOK IT TO CARMAX WHERE WE BOUGHT IT, ALONG WITH THEIR EXTENDED WARRANTY, AND WERE TOLD THAT IT WOULD NOT BE COVERED UNDER THE WARRANTY. WE WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A BODY SHOP TO HAVE IT FIXED BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT REPAIR IT THERE. THEY CHARGED US $87.00 TO TELL US THIS. WE WERE ALSO TOLD THAT THE ONLY TIME THEY HAVE SEEN THIS HAPPEN BEFORE WAS DUE TO A FAULTY PART OR WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS IN AN ACCIDENT. WHEN WE BOUGHT IT IN MAY OF 2008 WE WERE GUARANTEED BY CARMAX THAT IT WAS INSPECTED FOR DEFECTS AS WELL AS NEVER BEING IN AN ACCIDENT. AT OUR FIRST OIL CHANGE IT WAS DISCOVERED TO HAVE TWO LEAKS, ONE IN THE OIL RESERVE AND ONE IN THE AIR CONDITIONER UNIT WHICH WERE COVERED BY THE ORIGINAL WARRANTY OF CHEVY. I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE CHEVY CORPORATE OFFICES BUT THEY WANT ME TO TAKE IT TO A CHEVY DEALER TO HAVE IT LOOKED AT (AGAIN AT OUR COST) AND THEN THEY WILL FIX IT AND HELP US GET FINANCING TO PAY FOR IT. WHY DO WE HAVE TO PAY FOR IT WHEN WE ARE NOT AT FAULT AND IT COULD HAVE DONE DAMAGE TO MY CHILDREN OR OTHER CARS AROUND IT. *TR

Summary:
THE SLIDING PASSENGER DOORS ON MY 2007 CHEVY UPLANDER DOES NOT CLOSE PROPERLY. EVERYDAY THEY WILL CLOSE PARTIALLY OR EVEN FULLY THEN REOPEN. I EVEN HAD TO DRIVE HOME ONE DAY WITH A WIRE HANGING OUT AND THE WARNING SIGNAL BEEPING BECAUSE THE DOOR DID NOT CLOSE PROPERLY. THEY MAKE AN AWFUL NOISE WHILE CLOSING. THE PROBLEM IS BECOMING PROGRESSIVELY WORSE. I HAVE HAD IT IN THE SHOP 2-3 TIMES ALREADY AND PLAN ON TAKING IT BACK TO THE SHOP AGAIN FOR REPAIRS FOR THIS PROBLEM. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT THEY CAN NOT FIND WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE DOORS THOUGH. THIS POSES A SAFETY RISK TO MY CHILDREN AS THE DOORS HAVE BEEN REPORTED BY OTHERS TO OPEN WHILE DRIVING. *TR

PASSENGER SLIDING DOOR WOULD NOT CLOSE CORRECTLY AND IT OPEN WHILE THE CAR WAS MOVING. THE DOOR WOULD CLOSE THEN REOPEN AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO HOLD THE DOOR CLOSED IN ORDER FOR THE DOOR TO LACK CLOSED. THE REPAIR THAT WAS DONE WAS TO REPLACED THE CENTER HINGE ROLLER SUPPORT AND ADJUSTED CABLES. THEN A MONTH LATER THE CABLE JAMMED UP IN THE MOTOR AND HAD TO BE CUT TO GET THE DOOR TO CLOSE.

THE NEXT PROBLEM IS THAT THE DRIVER SIDE SLIDING DOOR WILL OPEN AND CLOSE FULLY BUT WHEN IT CLOSES THE MOTOR CONTINUES TO RUN AND THE REAR OF THE DOOR POPS OPEN SLIGHTLY. REPAIR IS PENDING. *TR
