2000 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #6

Jul 132008


  • 115,000 miles


The contact owns a 2000 Chevrolet Express 1500. The contact stated that the hinges failed on the cargo side door. It is a double door and only one hinge is supporting the door. He stated that the other half of the door could loosen and fall off while driving, thus causing a crash. The manufacturer stated that there was no defect; therefore, nothing could be done. The contact would be responsible for the repair costs because there is no recall for the hinges. He was informed that the age of the vehicle could have led to the failure as well. The failure mileage was 115,000.

I have a 2000 Chevy Express 1500 van. The side doors have become increasing hard to open and shut. Finally one day they would not close and the door appears to be warped or out of alignment. After taking the van to a body shop they told me the hinge pins on the doors have seized up and there is no way to lubricate them. He said the repair is about $1,000 to repair the door which involves cutting off the old hinges and welding on ew ones. The body shop said this is a common failure that GM is aware of but will not change, fix or stand behind if out of warranty. I feel this is unacceptable and that GM even though they know they have a problem continues to manufacture a faulty part. I seek reimbursement for my repair costs.

There are 3 doors on the passenger side the one that has the 2 doors for the people in the back to get out that the door with the handle that is in the inside will open but scrapes the outer metal frame. This door did open and work fully until one day and I don't know what happen I wanted to open it and it wouldn't open. I didn't want to force it nor knock any more paint off. I don't know if it is the hinge itself or something else.when I bought it in 1999 don't know how long it was but mark 3 went out of business so I don't know if there was a recall or not. Also when the T.V and vcr are on or just the T.V. is on it will only play for about 30 minutes before it will kick off and everything will not work including reading lights and tv and vcr. There is a relay switch to reset it and then it will work. I went to dealer and they told me about 400 bucks to repair it. They didn't know what the problem could be. This part is below the headunit that is in back of the drivers side on the console. It is for the people in the back can listen to music or play video games if intended to do so.

Recently purchased 2000, Chevrolet Express which exhibited a door problem. The door is loose. After inspection of the side door there is evidence of poor welding. The weld is still partly intact, and the other half is loose. The two door assemblies are very loose due to the poor welding. No repairs have been made.
