Team Chevrolet Salisbury NC Complaint - My 2005 Silverado Has Gone Through 2 Rack And Pinions

Review by skid mark on 2009-04-23
SALISBURY, NORTH CAROLINA -- In April 2008 my rack and pinion on my 2005 Silverado had to be replaced because it was leaking power steering fluid and grinding, which Team Chevrolet in Salisbury NC and GM did at no cost. Now in April 2009 I brought it back to Team Chevrolet in Salisbury NC because the rack and pinion they put in 1 year ago is also leaking power steering fluid and grinding. This time GM paid for the replacement rack and pinion which they told me was $600, But I was charged about $250 for labor and a realignment. They don't know why the rack and pinion keep going out or if it might go out and need a 3rd rack and pinion. I called GM and after about a week GM decided I would be stuck w/ the $250 fees and good luck if it goes out again..

I have babied this truck and hoped to run it till the wheels fall off, which might be sooner then later.

A good mechanic should be able to diagnose why this problem keeps occuring. Find a good mechanic, either independent or at a dealership, and have them look into this problem.
