Chevrolet Complaint - 2004 Silverado 2500 HD
I bought this truck new and because I am in a ride-share program do not accumulate many miles on either of my cars. When this truck was new it required a drivers side seal because it was leaking in water and this was covered. At 16,000 miles my disk player stuck, not the fault of the disk and this was covered. This year, 2010, 26,482 miles, my speedometer went wacko. Covered but when fixed my scroll bar is now messed up. The truck is going back in for service 1/23/2010 to fix the scroll bar which should be covered because it was working when the truck was taken in for the speedometer repair. Whoever heard of a speedometer messing up. I am 61 years old and owned many cars; never the above problems.
When I took my truck in for the speedometer, I was told my rotors were rusted and needed to be replaced, my oil pan was leaking( nothing on my driveway) and my transmission lines were leaking (again, nothing on my driveway). I have not even towed anything with this truck.
I will be taking my truck to an independent service center for a second opinion. I think the above is a quality issue and all repairs should be backed by GM. If after the second opinion, the above is true, I will let an independent do the work. No way am I going to reward a dealership for selling me junk.
I thought HD stood for Heavy Duty not crap. They should rename the truck 2500 CRAP.
This truck is going to get fixed, if needed, and probably traded. Do you think I should buy another Silverado? HA! My tax dollars were used to save this company; what a short sheet I received.
