CENTER-VEHICLE MOUNTED REAR BRAKE LIGHT MELTED ITS PLASTIC HOUSING WHICH MELTED THE WIRING AND MOUNTS USED TO POWER THE TWO LIGHTBULBS IN THE CENTER BRAKE LIGHT, RESULTING IN NO FUNCTIONING CENTER BRAKE LIGHT. THIS ALSO MADE THE INTERIOR LIGHT FALL OUT OF THE ROOF AS IT IS ATTACHED TO THE SAME PLASTIC HOUSING. ONLY APPARENT FIX IS TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE OLD MELTED CENTER BRAKE LIGHT HOUSING WITH A NEW ONE.

AIR BAGS

10/24/2016 - WEST FORK, AR
IN 2011 MY HUSBAND WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT WHERE A PERSON TURNED IN FRONT OF HIM AS HE WAS DRIVING ABOUT 35 MPH (ACCORDING TO THE POLICE REPORT). HIS AIRBAG DID NOT DEPLOY AS IT SHOULD HAVE, AND SINCE THAT TIME HE HAS SUFFERED SERIOUS BACK PROBLEMS. I WROTE TO CHEVY CUSTOMER RELATIONS AT THE TIME, AND WAS NEVER GIVEN A SATISFACTORY ANSWER. AFTER MULTIPLE LETTERS AND E-MAILS I FINALLY GAVE UP. SINCE THAT TIME MY HUSBAND HAS HAD TO TAKE TYLENOL WITH CODEINE EVERY SINGLE DAY SIMPLY TO BE ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH DAY-TO-DAY TASKS.

SERVICE BRAKES

4/23/2015 - MUSKEGO, WI
DRIVING NORMALLY, PRESSED THE BRAKE PEDAL AND IT WENT TO THE FLOOR; FORTUNATELY, I WAS CLOSE TO HOME AND NO TRAFFIC THAT I MANAGED TO ROLL SLOWLY HOME. RUSTY BRAKE LINES CAUSING BRAKE FLUID TO LEAK BY DRIVER SIDE DOOR. TRIED BRAKES AGAIN- TOTALLY NOT FUNCTIONAL. IRONICALLY READ ARTICLE ABOUT GM'S PROBLEM WITH RUSTY BREAK LINES IN THEIR OLDER MODEL TRUCKS. MAKING IT A POINT TO NOTIFY NHTSA THAT THIS PROBLEM AFFECTS S-10S AS WELL AS THE BIGGER MODELS. CONVERSATIONS WITH FRIENDS INDICATE TO ME THAT THIS EFFECTS A LOT OF DRIVERS. ALL GM TRUCK OWNERS SHOULD BE ALERTED TO PROBLEM. UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS WITH HIGHER SPEEDS OR TRAFFIC OR PEDESTRIANS, THIS COULD HAVE TURNED INTO A CATASTROPHE.
