It would be perhaps acceptable if these were high quality parts that would last the lifetime of the car. As it is, they are cheap crap (as in cheaply made) made in China or Mexico and their lifespan can be anywhere between 1k to 100k miles, most failing a lot earlier than 100k.

Might as well install aftermarket door locks and remote start. It's better off all around and you get a legitimate alarm

Great write ups bbtkd. Ordered my Dorman right rear lock actuator part from Rockauto and completed last night. Only took me about 1 beer to complete.

What is the most recent model year Gen 8 that has experienced actuator failures? Any 2015/2016 failures?

Just wondering if GM ever got religion and improved the build quality, or if I'm in for this sort of nonsense at some point.

TIA

It may happen sooner or later. The Mexican/Chinese build quality hasn't gotten any better. I will say that my '08 has 150k miles on it and so far no lock issues.
