We have now had to replace all four of our door handles. The black plastic and hardware just rots away. Eventually you pull on the door handle and the piece breaks off of the car and hangs by one remaining fixture. Money pit for sure.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe. Having problem with the ABS system. It happened three times. The last time it happened on April 15, 2005 caroline was coming off ramp at 10 mph there was water draining off side, there was no warning light, the brake pedal went all the way down, and the car did not stop. The car was taken to the dealer on April 18,2005, and the dealer stated there was nothing wrong with the ABS system. Driver's front door seems to fill with water. No water found in door. Door is designed to allow water to go in door and drain out bottom. Idle is rough. Dealer let vehicle idle in stall for approximately 30 minutes with no rough idle noted.
