1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

I have a 1997 S-10 chev. Truck. At a party a friend and I were sitting on the tail-gate of the truck. Surprisingly the cables supporting the gate had broken. I called on local chev. Dealer and ask if they felt any responsibility. They ask me if I had received a letter regarding tailgate problems. I reported that I had not. They said then they had no responsility for this incident which damaged the tailgate to tune of over $500. The fact that they ask if I received a letter from chev. That there have been some problems with the gate supports. It is my contention that the failure of the gate supports caused damage to my vehicle that I could not have prevented. I feel chev. Has responsibility for a failure of their parts causing damage to my vehicle.
