problem #1

Sep 152009

Uplander 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
Both automatic sliding side doors would open with no warning traveling 55 mph, afraid my triplet grand children or my 2 dogs would fall out, the dogs did get out one day when the doors opened by their self, one of my dogs ran across the busy street. Automobile ran over top of him but lucky the vehicle straddled him and he excepted with out injury. I have questioned several other owners that owns the same van and they also was having the same problem, but could not get it solved and gave up. I had the vehicle back to our local Chevy dealer in ashland, ky 41101, the first time in it worked for about a week, then started doing the same thing again, second time in said they could not get the doors to malfunction, but they opened again by themselves 2 days later after getting it back from the dealer ship. I have had many other problems with this vehicle, all but 2 have been solved, but the most serious one with the doors coming open is still going on as of today July 12th, 2014.
