I'm hoping you can get these issues recalled. As I have researched around the web, I had come to find that these issues are very common among gm/chevy brand. People should not have to pay out of their own pockets to fix something that is unsafe and defective. Here are the issues below: interior: plastic cover for "chrome" door handle is very sharp my wife has cut herself. Exterior: door handles come loose and already has pinched a several fingers.
I have a 2007 chevy Avalanche with the interior driver door handle chrome splitting and leaving a razor sharp edge that has drawn blood. The split is along the seam on the top edge of the handle.
The problem in question is a 2002 chevy Avalanche. There are problems with water getting into the passenger area, soaking the floor. This constant water causes the air bag sensor to corrode. The sensor is located on the floor under the drivers seat. I have had the sensor replaced twice. This will continue to happen for as long as the Avalanche is prone to this problem. If the sensor becomes faulty and causes the truck not to deploy or possibly deploy accidentally there could be damages, injuries and possible loss of life.
