Chevrolet doesn't care about using cheap parts- after warranty they say trade it in.numerous things wrong with van and have talked to Chevrolet many times. Can't use back door of van, run out of gas, knobs fall of interior devices, asked Chevy to help since 37,000 and problems still happening as I go, can't afford to fix and can't afford to trade. Another nice shove it job by Chevrolet they don't stand by their prduct and their product is not safe please respond.
