The handles on both sides of the seat broke very shortly after we purchased the vehicle. Also the third door handle has been replaced by us already and is broken again, also the third door bracket at the top my husband had to weld because we could not find one this bracket broke and the door flew open while he was driving. The spring in the hinge door broke off and now the drivers side door is not opening properly. We have had problems with this ever since we bought it.

This vehicle has light metal latches on the seat backs and extended cab door. These latches broke, causing the third door to swing open and the seats to wobble. The back of the driver and passenger seats could not be adjusted without these latches. The dealer has examined the vehicle three times, attempting to repair the problem. This type of vehicle only had an extended cab door behind the driver's seat. The dealer repaired the drivers seat. The passenger seat adjustment had broken within the first week of the drivers side repair.

Chevrolet S10- #1 both seat reclining latches have broken off (cheap pot metal used in latch). Dealer laughed saying that he has had many reports about this but it is not a "manufacturer's defect", but it will cost us $70 for each mechanism plus hundreds of dollars in labor cost. I have noted many other complaints on your website regarding this. #2 third door latch broken, also noted other complaints on your website about this.

Driver side door hangs when opened, as a result of the 2 bottom pins that hold the hinge. The consumer states that the door is designed poorly. Consumer has retrofitted with E-clips that does a much safer job. Also, the door latch mechanism falls apart.
