    Back door (cargo door) lock actuator replaced @ 95,000 miles. Replaced again @ 170,000. Needs replacing again now @ 220,000 miles. I think there may be a design flaw here.

    Both rear door lock actuators failed starting around 38000 miles. I replaced them both myself. Now at 52000 miles, and a 6 year old truck, the front passenger door lock actuator is now dead. I called Chevrolet and they said sorry not our problem. I said really, three out of the four fail and its not a manufactures defect. This is my last GM product. They wont stand behind their products. They must be paying to much out to pay for failed ignition switches to help anyone else with the junk they purchased from GM. Im a Ford Customer from now own. Thanks for nothing Chevrolet.
