I was very excited to purchase a truck that was suppose to be reliable and tough. True story....within 5 minutes of leaving the lot the gas probe was faulty, the driver side power window regulator cable snapped, and the glove compartment fell right off the dashboard when opened. It was test drove by the way. I called and in typical American dealership fashion, "sorry all sales are final"......I was thinking more of "wow really, we'll see what we can do since you just spent 1,000's of dollars with us". It's completely turned me off to American cars/trucks in general now because of the terrible service I received. I now have to replace the transmission, only 90K miles on it. JUNKY DON'T BUY
At this point, I'm lucky to have anything work on the vehicle. It blows AC when it wants to, not kidding. Use to be putting my arm out the window when driving till the window decided it wouldn't go down anymore. It looks good in the sunlight, I'm use to that since I can't really drive it currently due to the transmission failing. They are also great at rusting at the rotor assembly, so you know can't change your brakes. You have to use a special torch to remove the rusted back rotors.
Doing your own tune up is like performing surgery. The idiotic jam packed engine makes it hard to get to all the spark plugs. So if you like working on your own truck forget this one, they've made it difficult
Stop making them? Or just back up your product when someone complains of a gas probe or power windows 10 minutes off the lot. Could redesign the whole engine so you can get to routine maintenance things (tune ups).
Could be a bit higher off the ground due to previous reason, too jammed. Gas filter is in a horrible location as well, somewhat hard to change. I've heard several other complaints about the rough shifting which obviously made my transmission go out at only 90 K miles.
"More recalls are needed and Chevy is well aware"<-----statement from a dealership
SORRY TO HEAR BUT MAYBE YOU BOUGHT A LEMON TRUCK ON THAT DEALER. I HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH MY TRUCK AND SEVERAL OF MY COUSINS. EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD HAVE WHAT WE CALL FACTORY DEFECT. FROM WATCHES TO APPLIANCES AND EVEN CARS. MAYBE 1 IN THAT MILLION WENT TO YOU. THANKS BUD
