Summary:

I OWN A 2008 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN. IN LESS THAT TWO (2) YEARS, THREE (3) OF THE DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS HAVE STOPPED WORKING COMPLETELY. GENERAL MOTORS HAS DONE NOTHING TO REMEDY THE PROBLEM AFTER MAKING THEM AWARE OF IT. THE FAILURE OF THE DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS IS CONSTANT. THERE WERE NO EVENTS LEADING TO THE FAILURE OTHER THAN AN INFERIOR PART. THE ONLY WAY TO UNLOCK THE REAR DOORS IS TO CRAWL OVER THE FRONT SEATS INTO THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE. IN THE EVENT OF A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT THIS WILL BECOME A SAFETY HAZARD DUE TO THE FOLLOWING REASONS. 1. THE POWER LOCKS INSIDE THE DOOR AND THE REMOTE FAIL TO UNLOCK DOORS 2. THERE ARE NO KEY HOLES ON THE REAR DOORS TO UNLOCK THEM IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH 3. THIS WILL LEAD TO ENTRAPMENT INSIDE OF THE VEHICLE IF THE DOORS ARE LOCKED IN A CRASH 4. THIS WILL LEAD TO PASSENGER EJECTION IF THE LOCKS ARE NOT LOCKED MANUALLY 5. STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY IS LOST IN THE DOOR WHEN IT IS NOT LOCKED. *TR

I OWN A 2008 CHEVY SUBURBAN LTZ WITH 37K MILES. THE REAR DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS FAILED AT 36K MILES. THE FAULTY DOOR LOCK ACTUATORS PREVENT LOCKING OR UNLOCKING OF THE DOORS FROM THE DRIVERS SEAT. AS I HAVE SMALL CHILDREN, I FEEL IT IS A SAFETY ISSUE TO DRIVE WITH UNLOCKED DOORS. AFTER RESEARCHING THIS ISSUE I DISCOVERED THE PROBLEM TO BE WIDESPREAD ON A NUMBER OF CHEVROLET VEHICLES. PLEASE REFERENCE THE FOLLOWING INTERNET FORUM DISCUSSIONS : HTTP://WWW.GM-TRUCKS.COM/FORUMS/INDEX.PHP?SHOWTOPIC=98284&ST=165 HTTP://TOWNHALL-TALK.EDMUNDS.COM/DIRECT/VIEW/.F206D4B/75#MSG75 I SUGGEST THE NHTSA LOOK INTO THIS ISSUE AND MANDATE A RECALL AND THE INSTALLATION OF A MORE RELIABLE DOOR LOCK ACTUATOR. PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE IN THIS MATTER.
