problem #1

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe. Recently the rear window glass hinge in the liftgate failed. The glue that connects the glass to the hinge failed and now the rear window is being held in place by only the latch and the other hinge. This is a major safety issue. If the glass were to fall out in the road it would be a major hazard to other motorists. This hinge has failed under normal use conditions and was in no way abused. I just called my local dealer, cox Chevrolet in bradenton, fl and they informed me it is not covered under warranty and the cost of a new one is over $1,000. This is a manufacturing defect. I noticed other posts on the internet be persons who had the same failure and did not have the problem corrected by General Motors. Please advise on any thing that can be done to get GM to address this product flaw.
