Exclamation "Attention GM Owners" GM truck Tailgate Investigated

GM Truck Tailgates Investigated

The Daily Auto Insider
Wednesday, February 25, 2004
February 2004


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stepped up a probe into tailgate failures on full-size pickup trucks built by General Motors, Reuters reported.

The agency upgraded the ongoing investigation to an "engineering analysis," a step that can precede a recall.

The trucks are 1999-2003 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras, as well as Chevrolet Avalanche and Cadillac EXT trucks from the 2002 and 2003 model years.

GM has reported 430 complaints, including claims of 96 injuries and more than 61,000 warranty claims, linked to the tailgate problem, which is apparently caused by one or both of the tailgate support cables breaking due to metal fatigue, which consumers can't see because the cables are covered with a protective plastic sheath.

In one case, a tailgate separated from a moving vehicle, and in another, the tailgate broke as a person was loading an all-terrain vehicle, causing the ATV to fall and break his shoulder.

Should a recall become necessary, it would involve nearly 4.5 million of the pickups, NHTSA said.


I'm posting this cause I know some of you guys have any of these models so I'm posting this as a safety concern for all of ya

my truck cables are black, so it could possibly be that they aren't clear or something...or they're stupid as hell

Why the hell is it black?? They are usually clear so you can actually see them break.
