I will say this...I really think GM has screwed the pooch this time around. I know all the brands have problems(foreign and domestic) And most TRY to make it right, But on this one GM has went out of there way to avoid this problem....lying to dealers and customers, and by forcing dealers to do the same! It seems they really stuck it to there Loyal customers this time. And I strongly believe that they wont be able to wait on the next generation to bail them out
Has anyone read the article in the Jan/Feb Truck Trend Magazine about the 2019 Silverado/Sierra? Most of the issues that GM has claimed was "operating as designed" since 2014 has been addressed in the 2019 models....Imagine that!!! Even states that this design wont feel like you are driving a "wet noodle" down the road like the previous years!
The best one is where the guy talks about people being to "proud" to admit they made a mistake. Talked to a few service advisors they would say people would come in complaining about rattles in dash or air noises.... take them down the road and they would be shaking and vibrating and nothing was mentioned.
GM gave me a dealer credit for 1000.00 My came with general grabbers and went to Michelins. That was at 19,000 miles, I have 66,000 now ...tires look good but still has shake. I do believe that a lot of the problems come from the "Factory Trained Technicians" That have no clue how to use the road force machine properly.... Even though they will tell you " I HAVE BEEN BALANCING TIRES FOR 20 SOME YEARS!!!! "
Has anyone taken a aluminum driveshaft and have a driveline shop make a steel one? I see there is a place in Cal. that has a 2 piece setup with bracket for just under a grand. I have a 1 piece on a reg cab 6.5 bed 14 gmc.v6 We have a couple decent driveline shops around here and was just looking for input.. appreciate any advice
You must be new to the internet. I chalk it up to insecurities. Some people make the brands they buy as a part of their core identity, so an attack on that brand is an attack on them personally. Some of it is sunken cost fallacy too. People spend a lot of money on these trucks, so it takes a lot of humility to acknowledge you may have made a mistake on how you spent that money. Its almost like admitting you got conned. Not an easy thing to do publicly. After 802 pages on this subject, this could possibly be the best statement made!!!
I haven't posted on this for a while..My 14 sierra reg cab 4.3 2wd 61,000 miles 17" wheels. Still has the shakes, GM did give me a credit (1000.00) to purchase Michelins thru a dealer. what got me back on this is yesterday I worked on a friends truck..1994 chevy work truck 327,000 miles with original ball joints and my truck wasn't that nice riding when it had 17 miles on it, according to my dealer its the flatspots from sitting on the lot...(sat for about 2 weeks before I bought it). And my 02 Silverado that had 174,000 when I traded it in was like driving a Cadillac compared to this one. Oh well thanks for listening to me vent..Its been awhile!
