My side mirrors do not adjust properly, molding around the windshield comes out, the service engine soon light comes on, seat belt light comes on. Many attempts have been made and I get no cooperation from Chevrolet.

problem #2

Aug 192002


  • miles
Front passenger window shattered for no apparent reason-heard a pop, and the entire window shattered. For the rear seatbelts, the inertia locks activate and the belts lock up too easily, trapping the passenger in the seat. To release the belt, it must be completely removed and reattached. Dealer claims this is normal operation, due to child seat safety design. But this design seems dangerous to the adult or grown children as passengers.

- Redondo Beach, CA, USA
