GM Excellence?
By jdfosterdad on


2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


1. We had engine performance issues
from the start. The computer was
reflashed 3 times.
2. At about 45,000 the engine began to
knock when first started in the morning
which sounded like piston slap, at
75,000 it was getting hard to start and
compression on 3 cylinders was measured
at 70-75 pounds. The motor had to be
replaced. Since the motor, the
transmission has had to be replaced.
3. We had performance issues, engine
problems because of a poorly designed
pistons and transmission failure, all
were asked to be addressed under
warranty and promises were made and in
the end ignored.
4. Would I by another Silverado? I,ve
been a GM customer for 30 years and can
safely say NOWAY!!!!!
