Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 202010

S-10 Pickup 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles


This is the 3rd time that my extended-cab door handle has been broken. First happened shortly after I purchased the truck in 2002, another happened about 1.5 years ago when I took my truck to get washed and because the plastic handle is so flimsy, it broke again. This is the 3rd time this happens to me. I am not sure I want to replace it because it probably will happen again. It is just a nuisance not to be able to open my extended-cab door, as this was a big reason I purchased the truck in the first place.

Thought I'd share in case someone else knows if Chevy has a recall or a fix for this annoying situation.
