1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

S-10 Pickup

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Driver's side cable that supports the tailgate rusted out and broke suddenly due to corrosion inside the coating. With the tailgate down, I was climbing back out of the truck, stepping back off the tailgate when it snapped suddenly. I am over 65 years old, and when it gave, I almost fell off. I do not understand why NHTSA has not required Chevrolet to make a recall and provide 1998 S-10 owners with repair of the obviously faulty cables.
