Thanks for the info about this, That's the one thing that I have about my 2006 Silverado (11,000 miles in one year)My problem is that IM handicaped on my left side and when I push my door open it won't always open up or open all the way.Got my 2006 K2500 extended cab in Nov 2005. I have 56k miles on it without missing a beat. My only complaint is that the door hinges are weak and if the wind catches your door it can pop the hinge. I have had mine to the body shop twice for this. If you look around you will notice other Silverados with the tell-tale damage to the front fender and door like this photo. btw Chevy did not fix this under warranty. Said that it was my fault for opening the door when the wind was blowing so hard. Odd that I have never had that problem with my burb or with any other vehicle either. I think it is a design flaw that will keep body shops busy.
