Loose Gearshift Handle

Recommended Posts

I’ve noticed in my ‘19 Trail Boss LT that my gearshift handle is loose. When I’m in drive there is a lot of play in the shifter. It seems to move up and down about a 1/4”. When in park there’s minimal play in it. Anyone else have a similar experience?

This has come up in other threads recently.  Mine definitely does not have this kind of play in it... very solid.  Others chimed in similarly.

 

So I assume it's not supposed to.

I have driven 3 2019 Silverados in 2 days. I checked each one. Once it is in drive, I can jiggle the shift lever up And down maybe 1/2 inch either way. It doesn't seem loose when running through gears though. If anything it feels stiffer than my 16 was.

Yes! This is what I was referring to. It's very tight shifting out of park into drive, but then I can wiggle it up and down like you mentioned. My wife has an '18 Tahoe and it the same with hers. I guess I'm worried for nothing as this seems to be "normal". Thanks for the reply!

So I am sure then you already checked to see if your bed was perfectly aligned with your cab?

OCD x2
