inside door handle broke very easy i may say and then was told was 900 dollars to fix it. Due to bad engineering you have to replace the whole inside panel according to my gm service center.I got it out of shop and two weeks later it broke again.still have not fixed it because of the cost
Our company bought two 2010 Silverado pickups, just alike. Both driver side handles broke off at the inside grip with between 70 and 75k miles on them.
both insid latches completly broken off
door handle on both sides broke... I had to goto a used parts place and had to use super glue.
The interior of this truck really sucks.
Heard pop (like something broke or fell off) when trying to exit pickup from passenger side. Inside door handle no longer opened door. Took to dealership, was told that actuator (? on spelling) had to be replaced. Could open door from outside and remote key lock/unlock still functioned. Evidently cable broke from actuator to door handle and the whole unit has to be replaced. Expensive repair, $300.00.
Both inside and ouside handles on both doors and tailgate have had to be replaces 3 times now
