2001 Chevrolet Venture Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 022011

Venture 6-cyl

  • 152,300 miles


On 3, June, 2011, the right passenger sliding door on our 2001 Chevrolet Venture minivan would not latch on the back latch, resulting in the door only being partially, and dangerously latched by only the front latch. Sometimes it won't latch on the front latch either. This is not a power sliding door; but I've seen several recalls for failed latches on the power sliding doors. We have called, gone to junk yards to no avail, and dealerships say they do not have the parts to repair the latch. This is a safety concern, as the door could come off during travel, or worse, fly open during motion, placing the middle seat passenger at risk of falling out of a moving vehicle. For safety, door latches are something that should be fail safe in automobiles. One dealership said it would cost over $220 to repair, if they could get the parts. If"?" the car only has 152K miles. In light of the recalls for the power sliding door latches failing, I would think GM would honor the failure of the door latches on the manual sliding doors. This just happened out of the blue, with no problems prior to the failure. It just quit latching. Thank you.

  • 109,855 miles
The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Venture. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer because the rear sliding door failed and would not close completely. The door would close and then open approximately a half an inch. The dealer discovered that there was a recall on the sliding door and they repaired the vehicle accordingly. However, the failure persisted and the door would have to be held until it latched into place. The dealer informed the contact to bring the vehicle back for repair; however, he refused because they were unable to repair the vehicle correctly. The contact called a local repair shop and was informed that it would cost $200 to repair the door. The manufacturer stated that they would not be responsible for another repair because it was already repaired under the recall. The NHTSA campaign id number was unknown. The failure mileage was 109,855 and current mileage was 119,855.
