Summary
ODI has received reports that the power sliding doors opened without command while the vehicle was in motion on model year 2005 and 2006 General Motors minivans (Chevrolet Uplander/Venture, Pontiac Montana SV6/Montana, Buick terraza, and Saturn relay).some reports indicate that the door may not have been closed and latched before driving away causing the door to reverse (open) at low vehicle speeds.however, other reports indicate that the door was initially shut then opened after driving for several minutes and/or miles at vehicle speeds between 20 and 70 mph.ODI has upgraded this preliminary evaluation to an engineering analysis (EA07-019) to further assess this issue.
