  1. GM Stepping Up on Brake Issue

    GM's actuaries have determined that it is more cost effective to simply offer an extended warranty. Fixing the issue cost money and GM is betting the out of pocket expense to settle lawsuits involving fatalities and damage to property is far less. Sure gives you a warm fuzzy feeling knowing the next time your wife takes the GM vehicle on a road trip packed full of kids, it could be the last time you see them, eh?
  2. GM uses their customers as guinea pigs to essentially beta test their new products, diagnose issues, find solutions, and post results on these forums.
  3. wouldn't doubt if GM is in the process of paying off NHTSA handsomely to bury these serious safety issues such as loss of braking and loss of power steering.
  4. Shake or Vibration Issues

    Sounds like Truck Trend is subsidized by soon to be Government Motors Version 2.0. Then we will be subjected to a years worth of J.D Power television commercials depicting the 2019 model trucks as #1 in initial quality and reliability
  5. Clear coat on Alloy rims

    The alloy wheels on my 07’ 4Runner with 100,000 miles on the odometer look like new after eleven seasons of Chicago winters.
  6. Shake or Vibration Issues

    And GM is counting on their loyal customers till death do them part to throw in the towel, give them pocket change for their trade-in, and send them out the door with yet another unproven truck platform in long term quality and reliability.
  7. Shake or Vibration Issues

    How is it that owners of a non-GM vehicle can walk into a Walmart, Costco, or any other tire shop and purchase a set of tires for their vehicles and not have any vibration issues? God forbid a GM truck owner wear out a set of tires. Can't imagine owning the truck long enough to go through several sets.
  8. Shake or Vibration Issues

    It is truly a joyeous “Oh What A Feeling” to drive a maintenance free Crapota.
  9. GM will only do something about it once the death tolls start to rise to a point where it's costing them a bit too much to settle lawsuits out of court.
  10. Bad Bearing Sound

    Place the truck on jack stands, remove wheels, start the truck, stick it in 4WD and put it in gear. You’ll know right away if it’s a wheel bearing.
  11. GM doesn’t need to produce quality vehicles as long as the consumer continues to purchase.
  12. Every time I start the engine, I say....oh what a feeling with a big smile on my face! My 07' Toyota 4Runner just turned 90,000 miles on the odometer. 90,000 miles of pure bliss by simply doing an oil change every 5,000 miles and putting gas in the tank.
  13. Shake or Vibration Issues

    GM doesn’t need to produce quality reliable vehicles as long as the consumer continues to purchase.
  14. Collapsed lifter AFM issue

    sounds like when the engine is in V4 mode, it is simply creating too many internal stresses since engine output torque is reduced. Taking this into consideration along with torque converter lock-up and transmission overdrive which further enhance the internal stresses produced.
  15. I’d be reporting this to the NHTSA. Wouldn’t be surprised though if nothing comes of it. Suspect NHTSA has been paid off handsomely for decades now to bury the plethora of serious safety issues in GM vehicles.
