problem #1

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • 46,000 miles
Failure of power lock actuator on rear door. Door fails to lock and unlock as designed when vehicle is put in or taken out of gear. This appears to be a common failure on these vehicles from what I have been lead to believe and to date I'm told GM is not doing any widespread recalls to address this quality and safety problem.
