Chevrolet Complaint - Chevy Silverado 1500, Automatic Transmission
The Chevy 4L60E transmission installed in Chevy's most popular 1500 series 4x4 pickup is not suited for the task. After 51,000 miles the transmission failed! It was rebuilt by the chevy dealer where purchased (Elizabeth City, NC Chevrolet Dealership) after one month of arguing, and given a 12 month 12,000 mile warranty. The transmission has failed again, after only 20,000 miles!
The truck is not abused. It is used for transportation to and from work (high school) and to tow a boat (20'Ranger bass boat) on the weekends to go fishing. I am located in Northeastern NC where the land is very flat. The tow/haul mode is ALWAYS used when pulling the boat per the Chevy manual, and all required maintenance has been performed.
If you want a good, reliable 4x4 truck DON'T BUY the Chevy Silverado 1500 with the automatic transmission!! If you have any questions or you want more details please email me and I will respond as quickly as possible.
