General Motors Complaint - Chevy Avalanche coming unglued
PO BOX 33170, MICHIGAN -- The following mechanical/structural problems on my 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LTZ occurring between 36,000-40,000 miles (just out of warranty).
This truck has been well maintained, driven and kept in excellent condition at all times.
1. Lumbar support in driver's side seat stopped working. When I went to the dealership they said this was a common problem in these trucks and they could fix it for 400-500 dollars.
2. I noticed a crack in the dashboard one day suddenly on the passenger side, front left corner of the airbag insert about 3 inches long. When I researched this problem, at least 7 other Chevrolet Avalanche owners that I could find online, had the exact same problem in the exact same spot. This tells me that this is a design flaw.
3. The check engine light suddenly went on one day while driving. It gave me an indicator code that the gas cap and/or the oxygen sensor valve had failed.
4. Studs started snapping off the hubs of the truck while driving on the freeway. This indicates to me that there is some seriously cheap steel they used to build the truck - BIG SAFETY PROBLEM!
I've had GM products all my life since I started driving. This is by far the biggest lemon I have ever owned. The truck is obviously falling apart at the seams and will never make 100,000 miles.
