Summary of Complaint

2005 DURAMAX DIESEL, 2500: APPROXIMATELY 10 - 11,000 MILES THE STEERING SHAFT WAS CAUSING PROBLEMS. DEALERSHIP ONLY "LUBE KIT" VS. REPLACEMENT. I WAS TOLD THAT TOO MANY VEHICLES NEEDED REPLACEMENT THEY STARTED ONLY REPLACING IF VEHICLE WAS INVOLVED IN A CRASH. ALSO, THE LUBE IS ONLY A BANDAID AND WILL NEED TO BE DONE OVER AND OVER THROUGH OUT TERM OF OPERATION OF VEHICLE. NOT SAFE IF LEFT UNLUBED. THIS TRUCK ALSO HAS STARTED EXCESSIVE VIBRATING [16,500 MILES] WHILE ENGINE IS RUNNING AND THE VEHICLE IS IN PARK, DRIVE BUT STOPPED VIA BRAKE; NEUTRAL AND BRAKE APPLIED. BRAKE BEING APPLIED INCREASES THE EXCESSIVE VIBRATION. I DO NOT FEEL SAFE IN THIS VEHICLE AND I HAVE STOPPED DRIVING IT. *JB
