Train derails with new GMC Sierras & Chevy Silverados

Originally posted in the 2020 HD Ordering Updates, 2019 HD Production End Dates thread. From what I can see in the pictures, the trucks are the new 1500's not the HDs, but there were a lot of cars on that train... Looks like it also had the new Jeep Gladiators in some of the other cars.

For people who the dealer said parts were on back order there are plenty of parts in that pile. That is a crazy amount of damage i wonder who pays that bill.

The carrying railroad pays all class ones in the US are “self-insured”.

      I have a grant steering wheel assembly, but I need more insight on how to install.  Watched a bunch of videos but couldn't find a good one for what I doing.

      Hi everyone,
       
      So since my purchase of a 2016 Silverado 1500 in May the main problem I've had with the truck is its inconsistent ride quality. The truck is a WT with power windows and locks. Cloth seats. And vinyl floor.
       
      The truck only has 27000 miles, well kept and maintained. Used as a commuter truck to work, aswell as work on the side (Electrician). Truck was purchased with only 22000 miles on it. No issues other than leaking pinion seal which is in the process of being fixed. 
       
      At first I thought it was the tires so I had them balanced, rotated, and had an alignment done. While that helped it didnt fix the issue at hand which is how hard this truck drives
       
      It's a very uncomfortable ride at all speeds. Even on freshly paved highways and roads it still drives rough. What defines "rough" is the hitting of minor bumps. It can be just an ever so slight crack in the road to minor pits. I've done some testing and drove another vehicle (An f-150) down those same roads and had no where near as much of a impact and hit as my own truck. Now it's not a major impact like hitting something that you really shouldnt. But it's very unsettling and jarring at times as you would be driving the same roads you have been for years in different vehicles, and when you least expect it feel a nice jolt in your back when you usually wouldnt. 
       
      If you need more understanding, put a handful of change in the compartment under the AC controls and drive around.
       
      I was wondering if it has anything to do with the stock suspension that comes along with the truck. Should I try out new shocks? Is there anything else I should try? I have no clue what to do and where to start but driving 45 minutes to work with the truck makes my back hurt as much as after an 8 hour day of work. 
       
      Thanks

      GM recalls 160,000 pickup trucks in Canada for fire risks, nothing announced in US yet
      As of right now there is a recall for all GM 1500's years 2014-2018 that have both a rear window defogger and a power sliding rear window. 
      https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/gm-recall-pickup-trucks-canada-fire-risks/
       
       
      That recall has not been expanded to the US.
       
      I Just got off the phone with GM and filed a request to have the recall expanded to the US. I would encourage everyone who this applies to in this forum to do the same. It takes about 5-10 min but could save us all a lot of hassle later. 
       
      HAVE YOUR VIN READY
      Call GM @1 (866) 522-9559
      Reference this recall number:
      Manufacturer Recall Number
      N192220470
      (This is the recall number from GM in Canada)
      (reference: 
      https://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/7/VRDB-BDRV/search-recherche/detail.aspx?lang=eng&mk=0&md=0&fy=0&ty=9999&ft=&ls=0&sy=0&rn=2019325&cf=SearchResult&pg=50)
       
       
      They will tell you that the recall only applies in Canada and not to your VIN. 
      Express to them that the recall needs to be expanded to the US since our vehicles are also affected. 
       
      Please post here if you have called GM (just so we can keep track) 
      Please also post if you have experienced this issue (smoke, glass breakage, etc) 

       
      Affected components: electrical – rear window defroster on trucks equipped with the power sliding rear window.
      Affected vehicles:
      2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2015-2019 Chevrolet Silverado HD 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado LD 2014-2018 GMC Sierra 1500 2015-2019 GMC Sierra HD 2014-2018 GMC Sierra LD  
       
      It may be a good idea to sticky this topic.
