2002 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #5

Mar 302007

S-10 Pickup 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


I have a 2002 Chevrolet S10 ZR2. It has had many problems in the front end, it was eventually discovered to have numerous cracks and broken welds, mostly on the right side. At this point GM has offered a 70/30 split on repairs, which we reluctantly agreed to because we needed the vehicle repaired. Now that the frame has been haphazardly repaired by a different dealer, because the dealer that we purchased it from refused to look at it, we feel that it is still a safety hazard and we are trying to get it repaired correctly. We want proper repairs for our vehicle, but, to also alert others that there may be problems with the ZR2 frames. The original frame is still in the possession of turnpike Chevrolet in nitro, wv.

Noticed several days after purchase truck leaning 1.5 inches on drivers side, front and rear. Contacted dealer, they instructed to bring in after 1500 miles. Brought in at 2600 miles. After 1.5 months, dealer repair was to put stronger springs on left front, left rear, arch rear springs and fabricate shims (2) which were placed between frame and body. GM calls this fixed. I am not satisfied, and concerned about vehicle handling and safety possibly comprimised.
