Apparently, there is a plastic sheath that historically disintegrates on these Chevy's. While it is mildly noticeable (a slight clunk while turning in a parking lot), mechanic reported that it has no bearing on longevity or maintainability. Les Schwab can order metal sheaths if desired at roughly $300. Opted to live with it. The vehicle seems to intermittently register being placed in Park. When it does, the locks auto-lock, and the vehicle sets itself into Park. When it doesn't, the indicator in the dash does not show it is in Park. Requires using the hand brake and manually unlocking the doors. Vehicle will also not start when not in Park unless put into Neutral.
