Summary of Complaint

MY 2004 CHEVY 2500 INSTRUMENT CLUSTER HAS ISSUES. ON 12-24-07 ON A FAMILY CHRISTMAS TRIP MY SPEEDOMETER STOPPED WORKING. I RECEIVED A LETTER FROM CHEVROLET EXPLAINING THAT THEY WOULD COVER THIS ISSUE FOR 7 YEARS OR 70,000 MILES. IT SEEMS TO ME IF THEY KNOW THIS IS AN ISSUE WHY THERE IS NO RECALL FOR THIS. AFTER MANY DAYS OF CALLS TO CHEVROLET CUSTOMER SERVICE THEY TELL ME THAT THIS IS NOT A SAFETY CONCERN AND THAT THERE WOULD BE NO RECALL ISSUED. NOW I ASK HOW CAN THIS NOT BE A SAFETY CONCERN NOT KNOWING THE SPEED YOU ARE GOING? THE NEXT ISSUE I HAVE THAT I ALSO FEEL IS A SAFETY CONCERN IS THE INTERMEDIATE STEERING LINK. THIS AGAIN HAS SLACK AND RATTLES. ONCE AGAIN CHEVROLET STATES THIS IS NOT A SAFETY CONCERN BUT HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT A PART OF THE STEERING ASSY. IS NOT CONSIDERED A SAFETY ITEM? *TR

Summary of Complaint

Vehicle was being driven when "Service Brake System" appeared in the DIC. Vehicle was safely returned to owners home where it was discovered a master cylinder failure had occurred. The master cylinder contained no brake fluid, the booster was covered in brake fluid, and fluid was dripping from the undercarriage to the ground. The master cylinder and booster were replaced. In the process of bleeding the brake lines, a secondary leak was discovered in the brake line to the left front caliper. An inspection revealed a failure of the brake line due to rust. Inspection of the other brake lines revealed rust which will require replacement of all the brake lines. In this instance, the vehicle was actively being repaired when the failure of the brake line occurred. Had the brake line not failed during the repair process of the master cylinder and booster, a failure would have occurred while the vehicle was being operated possibly resulting in a crash with injury or death to the occupants or other drivers.

MEANWHILE A FRIEND'S COUSIN HAS A 1969 CHEVROLET C-10 PICKUP THAT HAS SEEN MANY WINTERS AND BEEN SITTING IN A FIELD, AND THAT FRAME LOOKS 100 TIMES BETTER THAN MY 2004. THIS IS A CONCERN THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. ALSO MY BRAKE LINES RUSTED AND BURST ALMOST CAUSING AN ACCIDENT (ANOTHER VERY SERIOUS ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN LEFT IGNORED). TO WHOMEVER IS READING THIS, THINK ABOUT ANY FAMILY MEMBERS WITH A SILVERADO AND WHAT DANGER THEY CAN FACE FROM A COMPANY THAT GOT AWAY WITH DARK METHODS AND IS FACING ZERO PUNISHMENT.

DRIVING SOUTH ON INTERSTATE 15 IN #1 LANE SOUTH OF CEDAR CITY, UTAH. THE TRUCK SUDDENLY SHOOK VIOLENTLY AND WITHIN SECONDS THERE WAS A LOUD EXPLOSION WITH DEBRIS FLY A HEAD OF ME. I FOUGHT TO CONTROL MY VEHICLE AND WAS ABLE TO SLOW DOWN TO PULL OFF ON THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD WITH HITTING ANY ONE. THE TIRE THAT EXPLODED WAS ON LEFT FRONT. THE ENTIRE TREAD CAME OFF OF THE TIRE AND TIRE SEPARATED WHERE THE TIRE WAS SEAMED TOGETHER DURING MANUFACTURE. THERE WAS EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE BENT FRONT BUMPER, TORE THE WHEEL WELL LINER, DENTED THE FRONT DOOR IN SEVERAL PLACES AND DENTED ROCKER PANEL UNDER THE FRONT DOOR. THE TIRE WAS A BF GOODRICH ALL TERRAIN T/A KO, LT285R70/17 LOAD RANGE E. THE TIRE HAD A 50,000 MILE WARRANTY BUT HAD JUST A LITTLE 20,000 MILES WITH 10/32 TREAD ON ALL TIRES WHICH MEANS THERE WAS 60% TREAD LIFE LEFT IN THE TIRES. WHEN I WAS ALMOST HOME, I NOTICE A TYPE OF VIBRATION LIKE A TIRE WAS UNBALANCE OR OUT OF ROUND. I CHECK THE OTHER THREE TIRES AND DISCOVERED THE RIGHT REAR TIRE HAD LARGE BULGE ACROSS THE TREAD WHICH INDICATES THAT ANOTHER TIRE WAS FAILING. TOOK THE TIRES TO THE DEALER AND TOLD ME THAT ME THESE FAILURES WERE DO TO A MANUFACTURER/WORKMANSHIP DEFECT. MICHELIN WHICH MAKES THE BF GOODRICH TIRES WANTS ME TO PAY FOR A NEW SET OF TIRES AND DAMAGE TO MY TRUCK AND VERBALLY THEY TELL ME THEY MAY REIMBURSE ME BUT WILL NOT PUT THAT IN WRITING. I DO NOT TRUST THEM AND WILL NEVER BUY BF GOODRICH OR MICHELIN TIRES AGAIN. MICHELIN HAS A RECALL ON THIS LINE OF TIRES IN VARIOUS SIZES BUT NOT IN MY SIZE. DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY MY SIZE WAS NOT RECALLED BECAUSE ALL SIZES IN THE ALL TERRAIN LINE ARE MADE WITH THE SAME MATERIALS AND MANUFACTURING PROCESS THE SAME FOR ALL SIZES. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE SIZE OF THE TIRE.
