problem #3

Tracker 4WD 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 72,000 miles
2000 Chevrolet Tracker 4 door SUV. Pass side front cross member rotted out and front control arm dislocated, car would not steer, front wheel on pass. Side turned in while left wheel stayed straight. I strongly disagree with Chevrolet's findings that it will not lose control, I was fortunately only going 25 mph when it happened. This truck is only 7 years old and only has 72,000 miles on it. The rest of the SUV is in mint conditon. This should not have happened. The Chevy dealer was unable to help me, as was GM because there is no recall.

Tracker 4WD 4-cyl

The problem "rusted subframe member causing total separation of the control arm bracket from the subframe" the information posted below actually comes from the NHTSA's defect investigation section, and appears to still be under investigation by NHTSA.. after reading the information below..and experiencing the loss of control while trying to stop when the bracket broke loose..I have two comments..1. does someone have to die before this issue is taken seriously" and 2. if I'm not mistaken..it appears GM has already admitted to the "defect" and Suzuki, the manufacturer of the "defective" part has already made "design changes" is this not enough of an admission of the problem to force a recall???" NHTSA action number: PE06021 summary: On September 15th, 2006 General Motors (GM) submitted information regarding approximately 128,000 model year (my) 1999 -2001 Chevrolet Tracker vehicles. According to GM, these vehicles were manufactured with front crossmembers designed and made by Suzuki that can rust from the inside out because of insufficient corrosion protection. The design of the crossmember limited the coverage of paint on the interior surfaces during the painting process. In March 2006 Suzuki made design changes to the crossmember to enhance the coverage of paint to the inside of the part. GM indicated that when operated in areas of the country that use road salt for de-icing, over time water and salt/mud can accumulate inside the crossmember and cause crevice corrosion that can lead to perforation. These perforations at the front control arm brackets can cause the front suspension to become partially detached from the vehicle.
