Update--Have a 2018 Silverado W/T regular cab longbed  that had the dreaded shake above 60 MPH from day one.  Did the dance with the dealership of replacing tires, vibration analysis etc. only to be told that everything was within specs, even though the vibration was still present.

     The dealership and GM Customer Care refused to buy the vehicle back or refund the purchase price so I contacted an online Lemon Law lawyer.  New Jersey lemon law rules applied in this case. The lawyer sent several letters to GM and suggested taking a cash settlement from GM and keeping the truck as opposed to going to LL court for a full refund. After 1 lowball offer from GM ended up getting a check from them that amounted to about 20% of the MSRP, they were also responsible for paying the lawyer.

       After that I ended up trading it in on a base Ford F150 and didn't end up losing anything on depreciation due to what GM paid me. Also was a night and day difference with the way the Ford rides above 60 MPH compared to the Silverado. The Chevy had under 3000 miles when I traded it in.

       I'm done with GM after this episode. The LL part took about 2 months and the lawyer said he has handled hundreds of these cases.

So do you have to go through the Customer Care issue before you start a case?  I have only commiserated with this forum but have done nothing on my side to open a case with GM.  Also I bought the truck in NM but now live in TX, would I go about contacting a TX attorney?  Sorry about your trouble but thanks for the info!

From your profile you have a 2016. In most states, note that to start a Lemon Law case you have to be the original purchaser, and you have to do it in the first year. Yours may be too late to file.

Thanks.  Man, I am the original purchaser but thought it was bent rim and never went to GM, just had them force balanced and rebalanced numerous times!  Then I got the 22" factory black rim (not sure the name) and it persisted and found this forum!

Sounds like you might be out of luck due to the time period that elapsed.  Mine did it from day one and I kept after them about it. I involved GM Customer Care because I was just following the steps in the owner's manual,talk to Service Manager,no joy talk to dealer management etc. and Customer Care was part of that progression even though from reading this particular thread and how they responded to other people on here I wasn't getting my hopes up with CC.

   Lemon Law was suggested by others on here so that ended up being the last step,they also mention it in the owner's manual.

      It's probably more difficult to get resolved if the problem doesn't show up until it's a year old or has 10000 miles on it etc. ,then they will try to blame it on any modifications that have been made

Thanks.  Yeah, that's a bummer.  I do love the truck but this gets a little tiresome to keep having it with nothing from GM if you catch it right away.

Last Friday they rebalanced all four wheels and sent me on my way. Vibration is now happening in the 60s as well. They've now had my truck for two days said they put it on the road force with no issues and was going to take the tires and wheels off another truck on the lot. I will be seeking another dealership after I get the truck back the service manager is not too friendly to say it nicely.

What I find interesting about this issue is that some days, I take the same road, go about 78-80 mph and have major vibration.  Other days, same road, same speed and NO vibration.  Is it possible that road heat, heat outside, etc can play a role in how much vibration there is?  The other night I had none but previously that day on the same road during the day I had the normal (what I am used to) vibration.  Just curious if mine is the only one that is intermittent.

No mine is the same way . I think some of the vibration is transmission related . Heat related for sure or Differential heat .

Strong headwind or tailwind would sometimes make a difference for me,but not necessarily every time.

They are talking about possible transmission replacement if the next test drive doesn't show any results.

did your vibration come back after the axles and driveshaft were replaced?

      I am a proud owner of a GMC Yukon 2016 Denali. Since these cars are not officially available in Europe, I imported a Yukon. Basically, I am very satisfied with the vehicle.
       
      But unfortunately, I have a problem with the vehicle, and nobody could help me so far: The car vibrates quite heavily and uncomfortably. The vibrations started when I stopped at the side of the road to let my wife get out. The engine lamp flashed, and the vehicle had hardly any power left. I drove about 1/4 mile, stopped again, and switched off the car. Afterward, I waited for over one minute and then restarted the car. The engine light stayed off, and so I was able to drive on. Also, the power was as usual again. But from there on I had vibrations which I didn't have before.
       
      So I went to a service station to read out any errors and get some help. But there were no errors detected. Since the vibrations did not disappear on the next miles, I went to the dealer again. They reprogrammed the ECU unit with the latest software and balanced the tires. Nothing has changed. So I went to another dealer, hoping that it could help me in a better way. They told me that my tires were worn out and that they could cause the vibrations. We changed all four tires. The handling was a bit better afterward, but the vibrations remained.
       
      Because in my country there are just about 10 GMC Yukon and a few Escalades driving around, no dealer has a clue and can solve my problem. Therefore I did a lot of research on the internet and on the paid platform of GM (ACDelco TDS) - unfortunately without success so far. 
       
      I am also familiar with the service bulletins for the 8-speed automatic transmission. But I can exclude these vibrations so far. I have some of these vibrations in my car. However, I have now imported the right oil from Texas by ship, and I will do the oil change within the next days.
       
      But the other vibrations are noticeable at any speed, even at only 1 or 2 mph or over 100 mph. Especially when I ride uphill or downhill, it vibrates a lot. As if I had no suspension in the back and the vehicle would bounce around. The vibrations are mainly felt in the seat. Very slightly also in the steering wheel. From the beginning, my car tends to steer slightly to the left. But I never paid much attention to this, because measuring the track showed that everything is ok.
       
      I am aware that a remote diagnosis is challenging. But perhaps you have any ideas where I should proceed with my further diagnosis? Is the suspension the right start, the drive shaft, or the wheel mounting? Or could it be the engine mounting? Or something completely different? What is the best way to proceed?

      Patient - 2019 1500 LD, 5.3, 6 sp, 7200 miles old, Covid-19 negative.  Symptoms - 2-3 second shutter / shake / rumble, during light acceleration, 30-40 MPH and low RPM.  Happens while both in V4 mode and while in v8 (manual w/ transmission set to L5).  I thinks its the torque converter, but surfing the forum I see this issue mainly referenced to 2015+/- K2s and I'm not sure if they changed the trans in the final years.  I'd appreciate either a TSB # or a link to another posting were I could find the TSB.  I'd like to be able to take to my dealer and say "HERE....READ....FIX" (politely).  Many thanks!

      Hi everyone, new to the forum but I’m at the end of my ropes here this is my Hail Mary. So I have a 2016 Silverado crew cab 6.5’ bed 5.3l 4WD 6 speed automatic transmission. The transmission was fully rebuilt at 75,000 The truck has 89,000 miles on it. I am complaining about a shake/vibration of course but I don’t feel as if mine is like most. Mine doesn’t seem as violent as others describe. I’m experiencing a vibration and a noise almost like driving over rumble strip in the road. This problem comes about when you are gentle on the throttle and at a lower rpm around 1200-1500. If you feather the throttle at 55 MPH you can easily replicate the issue. Next is issue number 2 I’m not sure if they are related but my gut is telling me they are, I recently noticed when stopped then slowly take off as in just letting the truck roll at idle of the line I feel like a small wobble/bounce as it kind of rocks you back and forth in your seat. Both issues go away once you give it more throttle. I’ve had the torque converter replaced first once the issue came back I then I’ve  changed the transmission fluid to the updated fluid, rotated the driveshaft 180 degrees and that has been the longest fix for 3 weeks. Any suggestions are helpful and appreciated and thanks in advance

      This truck is my first 4WD/4x4.  So a few weeks ago, I put my truck in 4HI, to drive in the snow, no issues.  Put it back into 2WD, when I got home, and haven't needed it since, until this afternoon.  When I put it in 4HI, it was grind/vibration central, but when I put it back in 4AUTO or 2WD, there is no issues.
