SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

3/12/2009 - FORT CARSON, CO
2007 CHEVY UPLANDER LT SPEED AND ABS SENSOR ON FRONT PASSENGER AND DRIVER SIDE COMPLETELY TORN OFF. I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE ASSOCIATED WITH A WRECK I WAS INVOLVED IN SO I TOOK IT TO A GM DEALER FOR INSPECTION. I WAS TOLD THAT THE LOSS OF SENSORS COULD NOT BE RELATED TO ACCIDENT. THIS IS NOT A RESULT OF NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR OR A MAINTENANCE ISSUE. THIS RESULTS IN FAILURE OF ABS SYSTEM. DANGER IS POSED WHEN A SUDDEN STOP IS REQUIRED TO AVOID A COLLISION OR DRIVING IN ICY CONDITIONS. I HAD THE VEHICLE EVALUATED ON 3/10/2009 AND REPAIRED ON 3/11/2009 AT A BRAKES REPAIR SHOP. COSTLY TO PERFORM REPAIRS AND WAS TOLD BY THE PEOPLE THAT REPLACED THE HUB AND WHEEL BEARING ASSEMBLY THAT THE SENSOR AND WIRES THAT LEAD FROM THE HUB RUN VERY CLOSE TO THE AXLE WHICH MORE THAN LIKELY RESULTED IN THE DAMAGE.

WHEELS

TL CONTACT OWNS A 2007 CHEVROLET UPLANDER. DUE TO THE AMOUNT OF SNOW IN THE AREA, THE CONTACT HAD TO DRIVE THROUGH A LOT OF SNOWBANKS. HE LOST CONTROL OF THE STEERING WHEEL BECAUSE THE VEHICLE SHOOK UNCONTROLLABLY. WHILE DRIVING THROUGH THE SNOW BANKS, THE SNOW IMPACTS THE INSIDE OF THE ALUMINUM RIMS. THE DEALER STATED THAT THE LOW PROFILE TIRES CAUSED THE VEHICLE TO SHAKE. THE ONLY REMEDY WOULD BE TO INSTALL A PLATE IN THE TIRES TO PREVENT SNOW FROM ENTERING THE RIM. THE FAILURE ALSO THROWS ALL FOUR TIRES OUT OF BALANCE. THE DOT NUMBER AND MANUFACTURER OF THE RIMS WERE UNKNOWN. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS 16,724. UPDATED 02-23-09 UPDATED 02/26/09. UPDATED 02/26/09.

LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES

12/2/2008 - GIBSONVILLE, NC
I HAVE A 2007 UPLANDER AND EVERY DAY THE SLIDING DOORS MESS UP. THEY EITHER DO NOT CLOSE ALL THE WAY, THEY OPEN BACK UP WHEN CLOSED OR THEY DO NOT OPEN AT ALL. THE VAN WILL BEEP FOR 20-30 MINUTES WHEN TRYING TO OPEN THE DOORS. THIS PROBLEM HAS BEEN "FIXED" 3 TIMES IN WARRANTY AND REPROGRAMMED TWICE AT LEAST. YET, IT IS STILL HAPPENING. I AM NOW OUT OF WARRANTY (BARELY) AND HAVE SPENT ABOUT $300 LAST WEEK TO HAVE IT FIXED PLUS HAVE BEEN TOLD IT WILL PROBABLY COST ANOTHER $250+ FOR ANOTHER PART, WHICH THEY WILL HAVE TO ORDER, THAT MAY OR MAY NOT FIX IT SINCE IT IS STILL NOT WORKING SINCE I TOOK IT IN LAST WEEK. I HAVE TWO YOUNG CHILDREN AND AM WORRIED ABOUT THEIR SAFETY RIDING IN A CAR WHERE THE DOORS DO NOT WORK!
