Summary of Complaint

The Frame has excessive rust especially the crossmembers that are in-between the two main lateral frame beams. In this vehicle they have rotted all the way through and there is nothing left of them and they look like swiss cheese. This particular vehicle also has only 130,000 miles on it which I personally feel is very excessive for them milage. I do understand it is a little older at this point but I have a dodge van and a Chevy sedan both having over 200,000 miles on them. Both also have been driven in West Virginia all winter long with salt exposure that do not show this amount of rust in the frame components. I feel this is a flaw in the manufacturing I have been looking online and it seems to beyond a common problem with this make and model of vehicle.

Summary of Complaint

ANYTIME A TRAILER IS FIRST ATTACHED, THE TRUCK WILL RANDOMLY GO INTO REDUCED POWER MODE WHILE DRIVING. THIS IS VERY UNSAFE AS THE TRUCK CAN TO THIS AT HIGHWAY SPEED IN TRAFFIC. IT WILL DO THIS A FEW TIMES UNTIL THE PCM "LEARNS" THERE IS A TRAILER ATTACHED. GM IS AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND ISSUED SERVICE BULLETIN 06-06-04-042B TO ADDRESS THE ISSUE BY REPROGRAMMING THE PCM. BECAUSE OF THE SAFETY CONCERNS, THIS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED AS A RECALL. HOWEVER,I HAD TO TAKE THE TRUCK INTO THE DEALER FOR THE UPDATE AND WAS EXPECTED TO PAY FOR THEM FIXING A KNOWN SOFTWARE ISSUE. INSTEAD OF DOING THE UPDATE AT NO CHARGE, THEY MANAGED TO DAMAGE THE PCM WHILE PERFORMING THE UPDATE. THE PCM IS NO LONGER SERVICEABLE AND THE DEALER IS WANTING TO CHARGE ME FOR A REPLACEMENT EVEN THOUGH IT WAS DAMAGED DURING A CALLED FOR SERVICE BULLETIN UPDATE. THE VEHICLE WAS NOT ORIGINALLY EQUIPPED WITH A TRAILER HITCH SO THE PROBLEM DIDN'T ARISE UNTIL THE HITCH WAS INSTALLED AND A TRAILER WAS ATTACHED.

Summary of Complaint

IN LATE FEBRUARY 2019, I ACQUIRED A TRUCK FROM A USED DEALERSHIP THAT I HAVE DONE BUSINESS WITH BEFORE. UPON OBTAINING THIS VEHICLE I STARTED HAVING ISSUES RIGHT AWAY. FIRST ISSUE I ENCOUNTERED, I WAS DRIVING BACK TO KANSAS CITY FROM LEBANON,MO AND ALL OF THE SUDDEN MY BRAKES WENT OUT AND MY STEERING LOCKED UP AND TRUCK STARTED JERKING REALLY BAD. I DROVE LIKE THIS ALL THE WAY HOME AND TOOK IT TO A MECHANIC AND LOW AND BEHOLD IT'S COST ME $100 TO REPAIR THE PROBLEM. SHORTLY AFTER I NOTICED MY TRUCK WAS HAVING ISSUES WITH GETTING UP TO SPEED WHILE GETTING ON THE HIGHWAY. I WOULD END UP HAVING THE PETAL TO THE FLOOR AND IT WOULD STILL ACT LIKE IT DIDN'T WANT TO ACCELERATE ALMOST LIKE A DELAY AND THEN SLOWLY GAIN SPEED. IT FELT AS IF IT WAS SLIPPING OR IT JUST WASN'T GETTING ANY POWER. MY OIL PRESSURE SENSOR HAD WENT OUT WITHOUT ME KNOWING AT THE TIME SO I THOUGHT THE PROBLEM HAD TO DEAL WITH MY OIL PUMP. I FINALLY TOOK IT BACK TO THE MECHANIC I USED BEFORE AND HE RAN A DIAGNOSTIC TEST ON MY TRUCK DUE TO HIM NOT FINDING ANY ISSUES BESIDES MY OIL PRESSURE SENSOR WAS DEFECTIVE. THE DIAGNOSTIC CAME BACK WITH MULTIPLE CODES AND 3 OF THEM HAD TO DEAL WITH THE TRANSMISSION. I DECIDED TO TAKE MY TRUCK TO MY BROTHER AND HAVE HIM LOOK AT IT FOR A SECOND OPINION. UPON DOING SO HE TEST DROVE AND INSPECTED THE TRUCK ENTIRELY AND CONCLUDED THAT HE DIDN'T FEEL THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH THE TRUCK AT ALL. HE RAN HIS OWN DIAGNOSTIC ON IT AS WELL BUT HIS CANE BACK WITH NO CODES THAT CAME UP AT ALL. SO I DROVE OFF CONFUSED BECAUSE OF ALL THE DIFFERENT INFORMATION THAT WAS GIVEN TO ME ON TOP OF THE PROBLEMS I KNEW I WAS HAVING BECAUSE THE TRUCK WASN'T RUNNING LIKE IT DID WHEN I DROVE IT OFF THE LOT. SOME TIME PAST AND THEN ANOTHER PROBLEM. MY BRAKES AND ROTORS WERE TRASHED AND NEEDED TO BE REPLACED ASAP AND THEN MY ODOMETER STARTED READING SERVICE AIR BAG AND WOULD NOT GO OFF.

Summary of Complaint

YET ANOTHER FAILURE OF INADEQUATELY SPECCED BRAKE LINES. I HAVE NOW HAD TO REPLACE TWO BRAKE LINES (FROM THE BPMV TO THE FRONT-RIGHT CALIPER AND BPMV TO THE REAR-LEFT DRUM) DUE TO BLOW-OUTS ORIGINATING FROM HEAVY CORROSION - BOTH OF WHICH OCCURRED IN HEAVY-TRAFFIC SITUATIONS. ON EVERY OTHER VEHICLE I HAVE OWNED, BRAKE LINES WERE AN ITEM THAT COULD MORE-OR-LESS BE PRESUMED A LIFETIME PART; THEY RARELY NEEDED TO BE REPLACED UNLESS DAMAGED. HOWEVER, ON MY TRUCK (AND HUNDREDS OF OTHERS JUST ON THE NHTSA'S COMPLAINTS PAGE FOR THE 06 SILVERADO ALONE), THE HARD BRAKE LINES ARE ABOUT AS FAR FROM A LONG-LASTING, HIGH-QUALITY PART AS YOU CAN GET. THERE IS AN ENDLESS AMOUNT OF DOCUMENTATION SCATTERED ACROSS THE INTERNET ON THIS MATTER, YET THE NHTSA SEEMS AVERSE TO HOLDING GM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY OF THEIR PRODUCT. IT MAY WELL BE TOO LATE AT THIS POINT FOR THE NHTSA TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT, BUT WHY DIDN'T THEY DO ANYTHING SOONER? THE OLDEST RECORDED COMPLAINT ON THE NHTSA WEBSITE IS FROM 5-22-2012 (ID# 10459283), THERE ARE HUNDREDS ON THE EXACT SAME MATTER, AND YET THE NHTSA HAS PUBLICLY OPENED 0 INVESTIGATIONS ON THE TOPIC. TO THE NHTSA, PLEASE HOLD GM ACCOUNTABLE FOR SPECCING LINES THAT ARE NOT ADEQUATE FOR A SERVICE ENVIRONMENT, AND QUIT MAKING CONSUMERS RESPONSIBLE FOR GM'S CHOICES. THANK YOU.
