Is This Another GMC Cover-Up
By cpaandcfsa on


2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


My parents were driving N on I95 this weekend from FL to VA. The truck's door locks went up & down; the lights flashed on & off; and then, the truck's operating system shut down. The engine, power steering, power brakes nor anything else did not work. Couldn't steer the truck & barely able to stop from 70 mph. 300 miles later, it happened again. Fearing for their lives, they did not stop the rest of the way home. When they took it to the dealer, he said that the "positive post" had come "loose". This did not seem reasonable & far-fetched to my father since he had observed the battery posts that week himself.
Is this another cover-up by GMC when more lives are at stake?

Worst Features

As retirees, my parents can hardly afford such needless and unexpected truck expenses. I'm scared for them and they're not sure what to do, esp. with all the problems GMC appears to be having with ignition system failures that appears to have the same symptoms as my parent's truck this past weekend. Come on, GMC, is this the first time this has happened or are you still not reporting such potentially tragic accidents that happened simliar to this? Respectfully, please advise. My sepmother called you and reported this so it should be on file.
