Yeah, this makes sense as I have had nothing but trouble with my 8 speed. Severe clunking at low speeds to the point where I have had to check in my rear view mirror on occasion to make sure I didn't get rear ended. It constantly hunts for gears and 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4 are really clunky and rough shifts. Already brought my truck to two different dealers 3 times and their final verdict was for me "To drive it until it blows up" as that would be the only way they would replace/ fix it. Certainly not what I wanted to hear after purchasing a truck with a sticker price of 59k. Called GM on this and they said there was nothing they can do. My next purchase will most certainly not be another GM product as a result of this as well as SEVERAL quality issues.
Hey guys, I have a 2017 GMC Sierra SLT 4X4 CC 6.2 Max tow with 35,500 miles. Tires are factory 275/55/20 Goodyear LS2. I just recently had my tires rotated during oil change (do this every oil change) and ever since then, I have had a vibration at certain speeds from approximately 40 to 70 mph, but particularly bad at 65 mph. I can best describe the feeling in the steering wheel as when you drive over rumble strips off the side of the interstate. Oddly enough, its almost rhythmic and does it once every other second or so. I got all 4 tires balanced to see if that would resolve problem. Tire shop said 3 out of 4 tires were out of balance and were rebalanced, but this still has not solved my problem. I know there has been discussion about the tires themselves being the issue, but I have not experienced this issue for the last 35k miles. Any ideas? I'm thinking maybe a steel belt broke on one of the tires? Also, I am about to go on a 1000 mile round trip over fourth of july weekend and would like some imput if yall think its safe to travel in this truck. Ill be pulling a 16' tandem trailer loaded down with 3 four wheelers. Thanks for the help in advance.
15_Silverado I drive 200 miles a day round trip working out of town. i work almost every Saturday and sunday which comes out to about 1400 miles give or take every week. This is part of the reason im not looking forward to having headaches with dealership because i will be seeing them OFTEN for oil changes and tire rotations lol
Thanks guys for all the help. There's another Chevy dealer in town that I had great experiences with bringing in my Wife's 2016 Camaro. My question is, this is a Chevy dealership. I know GMC and Chevy are the same, but if we are looking at extensive work to the transmission and engine, do you foresee an issue? The last thing I want to do is waste time bringing my truck to chevy for diagnosis and then having to bring it to GMC for actual repairs. Thoughts?
Hey guys, purchased a 2017 Gmc Sierra 1500 Max tow SLT with 6.2 and 8 speed transmission. I purchased this vehicle new in October and have had serious transmission issues since day 1. My truck now has 9500 miles and just scheduled a service appt. at my local dealer Courtesy GMC in Lafayette la. I expect my vehicle to be in the shop for quite some time with the transmission issues as well as an engine issue of a rough idle. Also, I have a rattle coming from the rear that I'd like them to chase down. With all this being said, they will not give me a loaner vehicle because I didn't purchase the truck from this dealer( and never would after this). So do any of you guys have any recommendations? The vehicle is 2 months old and well within Factory warranty as well as the extended warranty I purchased. Thanks!
following. Concerning to me the lack of customer service GM is providing. These cases seem to be the norm more and more, whether its vibration issues, or a general lack of quality control on these new trucks. I've got loads of issues on my 2017 Sierra SLT 6.2 Max tow package that has me feeling a good bit of buyers remorse. Came from a 2013 F150 Ecoboost, and I do have to say, quality was MUCH better on that vehicle. Granted, ecoboost did have several issues, but dealer took better care of issues than my previous and present experience with GM. Best of luck to you on getting your issue resolved.
I had this issue occur twice within 1 month of owning my new 2017 gmc sierra 1500. Oddly enough, the screen started functioning as normal after restarting the vehicle both times. Try disconnecting the negative battery on your terminal for 15 minutes.
