Hello everyone, Well I took my 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 up to the dealership yesterday for transmission issues. When accelerating around 30mph the transmission makes a high whining noise around 2000 rpm almost like its slipping and the truck shakes back and forth. Then when on the interstate on cruise control around 65-70 you will hear a grinding noise every few minutes. Also when you slow down from the 60-70 mph range to around 30 mph and accelerate the grinding noise becomes more apparent. When I dropped the truck off yesterday I showed the service guy video of the grinding as well as what I believe to be slipping and he said "Yeah that sounds like it is slipping". Received a phone call this morning from the same service technician saying they were not able to replicate the issue. That the transmission guy said that is normal when it switched between V4 and V8 mode. It's amazing I have had this truck and driven it for 76000 plus miles and have never heard that whining or grind noise. I asked how long they test drove it and he said 10 minutes. I told him they need to drive it around longer and actually go on the interstate to hear and see what it is doing. This is not the first time I've taken my truck up there for transmission problems and I am not picking this truck up again until they find the issue. The first time was for rough shifting to which they said was normal. This is my first Chevy I ever have bought or owned. Bought it brand new from the dealer. I must say that with how I keep getting treated with the "can not replicate" issue as a scapegoat for not truly trying to satisfy the customer is getting old. Especially being I have videos in which you can see the rpms and hear the whine up and hear a grind noise. This will most likely be the last Chevy product I purchase. If anyone has any ideas and doesn't mind listening to the videos I have I would appreciate it. I will have to post a link to youtube since the video will be to big to post here. Thanks
Well the saga continues for issues with my 2014 Silverado 5.3 LT Z71 that I purchased in December of 2013. Originally took my truck into the dealer for a flashing check engine light and rough idle along with rough shift from 1st to 2nd gear. The check engine light was a coil that was bad in the number #8 cylinder. Truck only had 9000 miles on it. They said they could not replicate the issue with the transmission (typical response from what I am seeing on the forms.) This whole time having my truck for 9 days. Still have the issue with the rough shift and idle. A week after my truck was returned my door actuator went out on my front passenger side door. After that was fixed another week went by and my front driver side door actuator went out. I took my truck in today because of another check engine light, the truck idling rough, the shift from 1st to 2nd being rough, my seatbelts on both front seats always locking at all speeds (only way to disengage the lock is to completely remove seatbelt), and my usb plug in in my center console not working. My truck has 40,000 miles on it. I was told the check engine light was a bad fuel tank pressure sensor. I was informed since I was 4,000 miles over my bumper to bumper warranty that it was not covered and would cost around $650 to repair even though I have only owned the truck for a little over a year and a half. Left the dealership in a rental as they did not have the time today to diagnose the transmission issue(only after sitting at the dealership for 3 and a half hours only to run the code). So now I am out of my truck again for who knows how long. Both rentals I have had are the same package as mine. Both rentals have not had the issues with rough idle or shifting either. It's ridiculous that I am having all of these issues on a truck that I bought brand new. I bought a brand new truck to have peace of mind that I would not have any problems and frankly all I have had with this 2014 5.3 Silverado is problems(with no answers). Starting to get old real quick. (Side note this does not involve all of the safety recalls that I have had to go to the dealership for. Airbags, transmission connectors, computer reflash etc.)
