Shame on GM

Vehicle

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased brand new. Several problems have developed: 1. Infamous GM piston slap, started at 11,000 miles; very bad now at 18,000. GM will not acknowledge problem. 2. Steering column clunk/rattle, common in many of these GMs. 3. Box sits crooked, common in many of these GMs. 4. Transfer case is very noisy. 5. Dashboard lighting problems.

Favorite Features

Engine was powerful before piston slap. Now I am afraid to accelerate for fear it will fly apart!

Suggested Improvements

Come on GM!! Subpar build quality. Will not stand by engineering mistake - how many loyal customers have been told the piston slap is 'normal'? I expect much more for $30,000.
