problem #2

May 262003

Express 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles
The rear brackets on the driver's power seat adjuster assembly completely broke. The whole seat now pivots forward on the front brackets. We brought it to the attention of our local GM service center and were told it would cost nearly $900 to repair. We feel this is a safety issue and would like your help in identifying the history of this type of failure. What steps should be taken with the manufacturer to have them repair this at their expense?

My wife was sitting in the driver seat of the van. The van was parked. Her leg made contact with the power seat control moving the seat forward and trapping her in the vehicle with her knee stuck under the dashboard. The seat would not return to it's original position and there is no release mechanism other than the power control knob. The seat was installed by mark III conversion vans and sold as new by the D & C Chevrolet GM dealer.
