Summary of Complaint

DASHBOARD HAS CRACKED ADJACENT TO CORNER OF PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG PANEL AND ALONG TOP OF DRIVER SIDE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER PANEL. CRACKED DASH CONTINUES TO EXPAND. THE CRACKED DASHBOARD IS A SAFETY CONCERN IN THAT SHARDS OF THE PLASTIC MAY BREAK OFF DURING AN ACCIDENT AND/OR DURING DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAGS, IMPALING THE PASSENGERS. THE SAD PART OF THIS IS THAT I HAD TO REPLACE ALL THE EXTERIOR DOOR HANDLES ALSO BECAUSE THEY ALL BROKE OFF FROM THE CHEAP PLASTIC CLIP THAT HOLDS THE HANDLE IN PLACE - NO RECALL ON THAT EITHER. THIS IS INEXCUSABLE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE COST OF THE LTZ VEHICLES. BOTH OF THESE DEFECTS ARE SAFETY ISSUES - MISHANDLING OF AIBAGS WHEN DEPLOYED AND SOMEONE ABLE TO ENTER YOUR VEHICLE THROUGH A BROKEN HANDLE!!!!!!!

Summary of Complaint

MY DASHBOARD STARTED CRACKING WHEN MY TAHOE HAD APPROXIMATELY 40,000 MILES, WENT TO THE DEALERSHIP IN MONTEREY PARK CA, AND THEY DID NOT WANT TO DO ANYTHING. AT 60,000 MILES ANOTHER CRACK APPEARED AND I SENT AN EMAIL TO GM, THEY SAID IT WAS NOT A SAFETY ISSUE, THEY OFFER TO PAY ONLY PART OF THE REPAIR. WHY PAY TO HAVE IT REPLACED IF IT IS MORE THAN OBVIOUS THAT THEY MADE A BIG DESIGN ERROR OR PERHAPS MATERIALS USED ARE SUPER LOW QUALITY. I KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY CUSTOMER WITH THIS ISSUE, AND THE CRACKS KEEP APPEARING AND GROWING.

Summary of Complaint

AROUND FEBURARY OF THIS YEAR MY VEHICLE BEGIN TO IDLE OUT OF CONTROL AND WAS ATTEMPTING TO GUN OFF EVERTIME I TRIED TO PUT IT IN DRIVE, ACCORDING TO GM THEY WERE ALREADY AWARE OF THE ISSUES AND SAID THEY HAD AN EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE THROTTLE BODY FOR MY 2008 CHEVY TAHOE. MY CAR DID EXACTLY WHAT GM SAID IT WOULD DO TO CONFIRM IT WAS THE THROTTLE BODY BUT THE GM SERVICE DEPARTMENT DENIED THE ISSUE CLAIMING IT WAS A LOOSE VACUM HOSE AND WOULD NOT REPLACE THE THROTTLE BODY. MY VEHICLE STILL DOES NOT OPERATE AS IT SHOULD WHICH I KNOW IS DUE TO THE THROTTLE BODY ISSUE. THOUSANDS OF OWNERS HAVE CONFIRMED THE SAME ISSUE AND OBVIOUSLY GM KNOWS ABOUT THE ISSUES BUT CHOOSES TO GO AROUND IT BY CALLING IT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY WHICH MAKES THE REPLACEMENT CONDITIONAL. I AM 100% SURE THAT I AND MILLLIONS OF TAHOE OWNERS KNOW THIS SHE BE A RECALL AND NOT A SO CALLED EXTENDED WARRANTY TO GET AROUND THE EXPENSE OF MAKING A RECALL. WHEN THE ISSUE OCCURED I WENT FLYING DOWN THE FREEWAY WITH MINIMAL ABILITY TO SLOW THE VEHICLE DOWN, I HAD TO DRIVE MY VEHICLE TO THE SHOP BY RIDING MY BREAKS BECAUSE THE VEHICLES THROTTLE BODY WOULD NOT LET THE TRUCKS RPM GO BELOW X3000. GM IS CONTINUING TO IGNORE THIS SERIOUS ISSUE AND WILL UNTILL SOMEONE DIES INSTEAD OF TAKING RESPONSIBLILTY AND MAKING THE RECALL TO PREVENT THE LOSS OF LIFE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN; I AM WRITING BECAUSE WE HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE DOOR LOCKS ON OUR 2008 CHEVY TAHOE. WE HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE DOOR LOCKS IN THE PAST AS WE HAVE HAD TO LITERALLY CLIMB OUT OF THE WINDOW TO GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE. IT HAPPENED WHILE ON A BOAT RAMP SO IT WAS AN INCREDIBLY MEMORABLE EVENT. WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS WITH THE DOOR LOCKS AGAIN AND TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE CHEVY SERVICE THIS MORNING. THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE REP CALLED US TO LET US KNOW THAT ALL 4 DOOR LOCKS NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. THE CHARGES ARE $350 FOR THE FRONT DOORS AND $250 FOR THE BACK DOORS. NEEDLESS TO SAY WE ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT HAVING TO PAY FOR ANY ADDITIONAL DOOR LOCK WORK ON THIS VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE HAS ONLY 70,000 MILES. THIS PROBLEM IS HUGE CONSIDERING THAT YOU CAN NOT GET OUT OF THE CAR ONCE A LOCK COMPLETELY FAILS IN THAT YOU HAVE TO CLIMB OUT OF THE WINDOW TO GET OUT OF THE CAR. WE REQUEST THAT A RECALL BE INITIATED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

THERE ARE SEVERAL CRACKS IN THE DASHBOARD OF MY 2008 CHEVY TAHOE. THERE ARE TWO SEPARATE PIECES TO THE DASH= THE FIRST: "PANEL ASSEMBLY, UPPER TRIM" HAS SEVERE CRACKS ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE AND PASSENGER SIDE. THE SECOND: "PANEL ASSEMBLY, INSTRUMENT" HAS A SMALL CRACK THAT IS TOUCHING THE PASSENGER AIR BAG PANEL & THERE IS A CRACK LEADING UP TO THE STEERING WHEEL. I AM VERY NERVOUS ABOUT THESE CRACKS BECAUSE IF A WRECK HAPPENS THEN I FEAR THIS DASHBOARD WOULD JUST BREAK APART AND SOMEHOW INTERFERE WITH THE DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIR BAGS. I HAVE SEARCHED THIS COMPLAINT ONLINE AND I AM NOT ALONE WITH THIS PROBLEM. I HAVE READ WHERE GM WILL REPLACE DASH FOR A COST OR SOMETIMES FOR FREE. I HAVE CONTACTED THEM AND HOPE TO HAVE AN ANSWER SOON. I THINK THIS SHOULD BE A "RECALL" FOR THESE TYPES OF VEHICLES. *TR
