2015 Silverado vibration
fstgmp posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingMy 2015 Silverado has had excessive vibration at speeds above 70MPH on smooth roads since the day I drove it home from the dealership. I have 47,000 miles on it and the front tires are coming apart in pieces while the back tires still have considerable tread left and no damage. I've had numerous tire rotations, tire re-balancing and four wheel alignments done from five different garages, (including two GM dealers), and nothing has helped. I've just paid $900.00 for four new tires and a complete re-alignment, and on the way home, I got out on the highway and at 70MPH my passenger seat and armrest started shaking from the vibrations.I don't want to ruin a new set of tires. Can someone please help? (Make that six garages).
Brandon5799 posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & SierraI have an appointment to take my truck in for some transmission work next week for a vibration that started yesterday. At first it kinda felt like a loose wheel or a tire was going out of balance but throughout the day it got worse. If I'm in 8th gear cruising at any speed about every 20 seconds the whole truck shakes for a couple seconds and at every up shift it shakes when it grabs the next gear. If I run in manual in 7th gear I don't get any shaking at highway speeds just in 8th. Kinda feels like it maybe the torque converter? Anyone else experience anything like this. Truck just turned over 16k miles. Just curious what to expect for repairs if anyone else has had this problem.
Hi everyone. Been along time since I've posted about my 2015 vibrator. Well what a story I have for you! I'll make it short n sweet as possible. First the dealership, couple of hiccups but overall really good to me. Second the Gm customer service, very pleasant to talk to......that's all. Third Gm district manager, treated me very well with buyback. 1/16 New 2015 1500 double ltz 6.2 20" vibrated bad from day one! Approx 6-7 months later after 4 sets of tires, alignments etc.. was offered buyback. Ordered a 2017 1500 crew ltz z71 6.2 18" loaded on first order date. ( z71 and 18" highly suggested for least amount of possible vibration problems by DM ) 12/20/16 new truck FINALLY arrives. Stunning, rides amazing. 5/17 4K miles started to notice a little vibration. Could live with it. 6/17 vibration worse, rear end was making odd noise off and on. Rear end locked up several times at very low speeds and just dragged tires. Will leave out all the bs. Rear end was blown. Btw I don't beat on my trucks. GM POLICY.... new model year rebuild only! If 2016 and older new rear end. RFB tires 2 no good. 2 new tires( found out were out of spec to, put on anyways) Rebuilt rear end, 2 new tires truck vibrated worse, rear end made bad clunking noise and all around seemed worse. Didn't want to go through another buyback and was told GM probably won't do it. Traded for 2017 Colorado v6 crew long bed. Surprisingly really like this little truck. Ok you ready.... 207 miles on it, took it on highway, vibrated worse than my first truck. Also noticed whole truck had a slight lean to drivers side. Took service manager for ride and couldn't believe how bad it was. Also measured truck and driver side was shorter. RFB tires, perfect, checked everything, perfect. No bulletins for it. Never had a Colorado vibrate. Nothing he could do about it. Said you got a lemon. He was gonna contact DM. ( I wrote a email to DM in detail of what My family and I have gone through the past year and a half, how much money we have lost, how much stress we have had and to please just give me a new Colorado ) He got in touch with New DM and explained he couldn't fix it, it's a lemon. Definitely should do a buyback. Well guess what DENIED!! IM FLOORED... unfixable truck is mine. Almost traded for another New Silverado but couldn't do it. Lemon law would take to long and they would get me for mileage( which is not cheap ) and I have to drive it. 8/17 traded for a beautiful black 2017 v6 twin turbo crew cab loaded f150. Couldn't be happier. Really impressed with motor, better tow, better mileage, seats more comfortable, all around better. Unfortunately For GM ( not that it matters to them ) I will never buy a GM product again and I will steer anyone who asks away from them. BTW... I personally know several 15-17 Silverado owners who's trucks vibrate, most common said things from them is... Dont have time to bring it in. Don't wanna go through bs. Take the wife's car for long drives. Brought it in got new tires still vibrates. Gonna trade for Ram/Ford. So the number of REPORTED vibration issues means nothing.. lots of people don't have time, don't wanna deal with bs, traded or just don't care. In the past year and a half I've asked approximately 50 15-17 Silverado owners if theirs vibrated. HALF said yes and all at highway speeds. Personally I think they all vibrate on different levels. On the low end response well it's a truck, that's how it rides. It's expected. And don't forget service guys going with you for test ride saying, that's the tires their aggressive your gonna get that. Unfortunately I've heard it all. My Silverado crew rode like a Cadillac until 4K miles. Take no excuses!!!! Thanks for reading and good luck to all.
Hello all, I am new here and yesterday I posted some questions that I really need help with in 2 locations because I didn't know where to post them correctly. Consequently, I never got any answers maybe because the admin deleted them both. My bad, I honestly didn't know where the right place was. So here are a couple of my primary concerns with this truck, if anyone can help I would appreciate it... The dealer had my truck for 6 days to replace a broken dash piece and to troubleshoot driving issues. During the test drive, the service (manager?) stomped the gas to the floor and we both heard a metallic sound, he repeated it numerous times and the sound always came back. To me it sounded like a couple of lifters that were about to shoot out from under the hood. We went back to the dealership where I was asked to wait while he and the shop foreman went for a drive. When they returned I was told that it was "just and exhaust noise" and it was "perfectly normal". They insisted I take a drive with the shop foreman even though we all agreed that I feel issues that they believe to be normal for this vehicle, so the test drive was pointless. Nonetheless, we drove. I showed how when I step on the gas to take off the engine seems to bog down and lack throttle response, I also showed how at each and every stop the truck shakes like it is having an epileptic fit. The explanation I got was that this was the active fuel management system just doing its job and it was "perfectly normal". Call me crazy but I just can't wrap my head around a new vehicle of any type, but especially not a 54K vehicle shaking like crazy, rattling under heavy throttle and lacking the power to get out of its own way to be "perfectly normal". But maybe I am wrong, any thoughts or advice would be super appreciated. Thanks
