2002 Chevy S10 ls crew cab the door strikers caved into the frame on both sides drivers side and passenger side.this happened with in one day of each other. On photographed inspection the steel had ripped in the shape of the clip behind the door strikers an obvious engineering flaw in design, I took it to the dealer who acknowledged the obvious design flaw launched a complaint with photos he took as well. Chevy said the truck was to old, evidently the doors can fall off your truck in 8 years and Chevy does not care. I had to weld the steel my self since the doors would not shut. Chevy will be hit with a class action lawsuit eventually when someone falls out of their crappy truck. Unlike Toyota who is taking care of their customers Chevy will just give you the middle finger. I will never buy another Chevy truck unless it is a 74 or under.shame on Chevy for selling shotty cars and trucks no wonder they were going out of business. Now my door lock on the drivers side won't lock the plastic seat handle snapped off and the visors on both side the plastic mirror hinges just crumbled bad plastic I can live with but door strikers falling into the frame I just can't condone that. The 4 wheel drive has never worked right since day one, what a piece of junk. A real waste of money didn't even last 10 years. Customer no service at Chevy was a waste of time and frustrating. I do not believe that a safety issue such as the door strikers ripping out is an issue of being to old it is a safety issue period and needs to be taken care of by Chevy.
