The contact stated the strap on the second row seat will not allow the seat to move forward. The concern was that the seat will not move forward to allow children /younger occupants to get out of the vehicle. While she was outside of the vehicle she could access the strap, but it will not move the seat forward from this position. The manufacturer stated this was the design feature of the seat.

The consumer purchased a new van 2005 and discovered there were no arm rests on the second row seats, and consumer thought this was unsafe. Also when sitting in the back third row seat the ride was uncomfortable, and when hitting a bump in the road it hurt the passenger's back. Has been to a dealer, and the dealer noted this vehicle did not come with an arm rest, but consumer could pay out of pocket to get van customized. Consumer did want to do this because he felt it was not his responsibility. Consumer contacted Chevrolet, and they told consumer to talk to dealer to trade and pay the difference for a model that did have arm rests. Consumer did not wish to do that, and no changes have been made to vehicle. The consumer was making a turn and fell over when the injury occurred.

I am entering this concern on behalf of my family members that were injured with one fatality in a single vehicle incident. The vehicle incident ocurred on I65 southbound between montgomery, Alabama and mobile, Alabama on May 17, 2005. My aunt [xxx] died as a result of injuries. My mother [xxx] remains in critical condition at the univ. Of South Alabama medical center in mobile, al. My cousin [xxx] has neck injuries and has been released. My father [xxx] and nephews ([xxx] and [xxx]) suffered minor injuries. My father was driving the vehicle. [xxx] and [xxx] were riding in the 2nd row seats in an avis rental 2005my Chevy Uplander. According to my sister [xxx] and her conversations with the icu surgeons, both [xxx] and [xxx] suffered intestinal damage and injuries were similar. According to my father's recollection, my mother was sitting on the 2nd row -driver's side and my aunt was seated on the 2nd row - passenger side. Based on photos of the vehicle, the passenger- side resembles a side-impact damage. My father recalls a roll-over event. He did not recall making a major turn in the steering wheel. Per recall NHTSA id#05V061000 and GM recall#05015, it states that the 2nd row seat can become detached as a result of side - impact. The recall began in 04/05/2005. According to GM records, the vehicle [xxx] was not included in the recall. My conversation with the tow company leads me to suspect 2nd row seat performance in the incident. I have the following questions and suspicions: (1) 2nd row seats temporarily or permanently detached (2) the body frame support allowed for the 2nd row seats to detach (3) the 2nd row seat back support may have failed (4) the 2nd row seat belts may have faltered. (5) vehicle chassis design allowed a greater chance for tip over. Avis denied my request to view the vehicle. Now, I am more concerned.
