Summary of Complaint

REAR DOOR LOCKS (ACTUATORS) STOPPED WORKING. FIRST PASSENGER REAR LOCK FAILED TO OPEN OR CLOSE. THIS HAPPENED AFTER WARRANTY COVERAGE HAD ENDED. AFTER SOME RESEARCH I HAVE FOUND OUT THAT THIS IS A WIDESPREAD GM ISSUE ESPECIALLY WITH 2008-09 GM SUV TYPE OF VEHICLES. MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE ACTUATOR MOTOR FAILS. IT IS ALSO MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THIS ELECTRICAL FAILURE IS DUE TO A VERY INEXPENSIVE ELECTRICAL ACTUATOR IS USED FOR THE LOCKING MECHANISM. THIS IS A REAL SAFETY ISSUE AND I AM WONDERING WHEN GM WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. *TR

The notice says a severe injury or death could result from the malfunction. Seven months is not timely. I checked the General Motors website and it states no parts or repairs are available.

Summary of Complaint

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe. While the contact's daughter was entering traffic at 65 MPH, the vehicle in front made an abrupt stop. As a result, the contact's daughter was unable to stop the vehicle in time and crashed into the rear of the vehicle. The contact was concerned that no air bags deployed during the impact. In addition, the contact stated that the OnStar feature failed to activate and it was concluded that it was due to the sensors. During the impact, the contact's daughter's head hit the steering wheel and caused an injury in which physical therapy was required on the weekly basis. The vehicle was towed and a police report was filed. The contact also wanted to advise that vehicle was included in NHTSA Campaign Number 21V52000 (Air Bags). The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 139,000.

WHEN TRAVELING ABOVE 30 MPH THEN DECELERATING, ONCE THE CAR GETS TO AROUND 15-20 MPH IT JUMPS FORWARD. IT'S SIMILAR TO WHEN YOU DRIVE A STICKSHIFT AND TAKE YOUR FOOT OFF THE CLUTCH AND THE CAR JUMPS FORWARD AS IF IT MIGHT STALL. IT DOESN'T HAPPEN REGULARLY. IF I DECELERATE VERY QUICKLY, THEN IT DOES NOT DO IT. IF I DECELERATE SLOWLY THEN IT DOES NOT DO IT. IT HAS TO BE SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN AND THE CAR IS CONFUSED BETWEEN STAYING IN GAS MODE OR SWITCHING TO HYBRID MODE AND AUTO STOP. THE CAR THEN JUMPS FORWARD WHEN CONFUSED.
