I bought this vehicle at the end of 2016, It shakes like hell between 65-80mph off the lot, This vehicle has been work on for about three weeks to date. All I have gotten is a run around from the dealer, it's the rims and tires, it's balancing issues. They play these silly games, they attempt to make you feel like you are the problem. One customer service representative told me the speed limit was 60mph, all vehicle shakes. Can you believe this nonsense? One of there mechanics told me something was wrong with the vehicles frames and not sure why GM has not own up to it. I have talked with many people with the exact vehicles....same complaint from them. I can't believe the government let these companies get away with such.
This truck hesitates when accelerating and it shifts hard in both upshifts and downshifts. I read a bunch of online reviews on various websites and found out this is a common problem. I took it back to the dealer, they looked it over, and told me the same thing--it's a common problem. They said it would work itself out, but it might take up to 12 or 14,000 miles! I've now had it for 9 months and driven it for 13,600 miles. No change. It still hesitates when cold and even lukewarm. Once it gets hot, it doesn't have this problem unless I really punch it to try to pass some slow poke. If it downshifts to make the pass, it shifts hard and hesitates. This is all very frustrating and really disappoints me. I had a Colorado for 13 years that had no problems of this kind. (It had other problems, but not this one.) This problem makes me want to sell this truck and go with a Ram instead. *This is a Custom double cab with a 5.3, but this website didn't give that as a trim choice.
Black cloth interior not fun to keep clean. No heated seats, not good in winter. Love the ride & comfort. Visibility over the hood can be a challenge for my 5'1" frame. Electronics good. I get lots of compliments from the guys.
2017 Midnight Z71. Like the truck, hate the Chevy Dealer who sold it. Brand new, trans surges & downshifts too hard. Dealer lied & said Chevy didn't know anything about it. Nothing they could do. Different Chevy dealer knew all about it, had a TSB on it already. 6 speed trans problems. Tried to tow my Vette & felt like the trans was coming thru the floor. Beware. Lifetime bowtie guy, next truck will be an F-150. Update, 9000 miles. Trans banging on downshift. Dealer still lying.
