The service suspension system warning message came on when starting the vehicle, prompting me to search for warranty information upon which I discovered this recall information. Please advise me how to get this problem fixed under recall if this situation applies. Thank you.

Hi I purchase 2008 Chevy Tahoe brand new. How I called last year to GM support as for this my door lock problem. They told me we will take care of this just take it to nearest dealer which was 220 miles away from where I live. ( and I was told they will take care of it. ) support dept got me an appointment set everything up. I drove in to dealership they look at all my complains. And got me quote for all the repair needs to be perform. Door lock problem is a know issue to GM I am not the only one who's affected. But dealership told us. That GM would not pay for repair. How would you feel drive 220 miles and get quote in your okay it's going to be $480 per door to fixed. My question if was not going to take care of this repair why would send me to dealership to have fixed.that trip cost me over 300 bucks not to mention all of the frustration involved. Wasted my 1 1/2 days. I have been watching people complaining on edmunds and GM is answering emails. But none of them is getting any help, if GM is not going to stand behind of their product why would respond to emails. This is not done. I happened 2 months after warranty was expired. I bought my truck when GM was in trouble. I don't think that these giant company's care. That does tells me one thing stay away from GM. I would own another GM product in future or ever and pass on this to others. One thing I would like point is that. This door lock problem GM should look into little too closely. This is safety issue. It should recalled and have it fixed immediately without any further delays. Thanks

The vehicle exhibits accelerated side to side movements in side winds and when following high profile vehicles. The side to side movement is extreme enough to cause mild discomfort from the safety belts and will cause the vehicle operator to be come disoriented. Inclement weather makes the problem intolerable.
