Chevrolet Silverado Truck Vibration

FREE CONSULTATION ON YOUR CHEVY SILVERADO VIBRATION CONCERN

2015 Chevrolet Silverado trucks have a vibration problem.  The trucks are 6-cylinders, and some suggest a feature called “active fuel management” caused the engine to run erratically on 4 cylinders to achieve  fuel efficiency.    GM has issued service bulletins on the subject, including “PI1354C: Information on Vibration Analysis and Diagnostic” and PIP5228A.  We have set forth reports filed with the NHTSA about the problem.

Owners may be entitled to compensation for repair costs, inconvenience, and other damages.

Vehicle Identification No. (VIN): 3GCUKREH4FG…

SUMMARY:

“The trucks have a vibration that is felt in the steering wheel, floor, seats, accelerator and brake pedals etc. while driving.  The major consensus is that the worst is 76 mph, yet it is felt to a lesser degree at any speed, with some being worse than others.  There are a large number of trucks with this issue, yet General Motors refuses to do anything about it.  It began within a couple weeks of purchasing my truck.  I found people first reporting the issue in 2015, and more recently it continues with the 2015 and 2016 model years.”

SUMMARY:

“I purchased a brand new 2015 Silverado on 7/24/15 and at about 700 miles or so I noticed a bad vibration as the truck was in motion, took it back to the dealer cause I was very upset it being a $56,000.00 truck and all.  They wanted me to leave the truck overnight and did not offer any vehicle to drive so I did not leave it with them.  So I took the truck to Ratfield Tire and had the tires balanced, all 4 tires were out of balance, which I paid for out of pocket myself not GM…  This did not fix the problem of the severe vibration going down the road.  I then took the truck to another dealer for the vibration, they test drove it and confirmed the vibration, did a road force balance on all 4 wheels, then replaced all tires, this also has not fixed the problem, the truck is still vibrating, the entire seat just shakes, I am presently waiting on another appointment with dealer.  The service manager told me himself after replacing all 4 tires that it felt like a balance issue inside the motor which there is no fix, now that is crazy… I feel that this truck should be replaced or my money back entirely.  The truck only has a little over 2000 miles cause it makes me sick to drive it…”
