Summary of Complaint

 

ENTIRE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WENT OUT WHILE DRIVING CAUSING LOSS OF NEEDED INFORMATION SUCH AS SPEED AND OTHER PERTINENT INFORMATION. DEALER SAYS THERE IS A TSB THAT THE ENTIRE TRUCK HAS TO BE RE-FLASHED INCLUDING ALL MODULES IN THE VEHICLE BECAUSE IT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER. DURING THIS TIME, ALL SAFETY SYSTEMS FLASHED AND APPEARED TO BE INACTIVE. AIR BAG, TRACTION CONTROL, ABS, TRAILER BRAKING ETC. THIS NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED TO SEE IF A RECALL MUST HAPPEN. IF WE GOT IN AN ACCIDENT DURING THIS OCCURRENCE WHO KNOWS IF ANY OF THE SAFETY SYSTEMS ON THE VEHICLE WERE FUNCTIONING.

Summary of Complaint

 

I PURCHASED A 2016 SILVERADO 1500 4WD LTZ CREW ON FEBRUARY 08, 2016. ON FEBRUARY 20, 2016 WITH JUST 312 NEW MILES DRIVEN ON THE NEW VEHICLE, THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING STOPPED WORKING WHILE DRIVING 60 MILES PER HOUR GOING WEST ON THE SOUTHERN STATE PARKWAY MIDDLE LANE IN NASSAU COUNTY NEW YORK. WITH NO POWER STEERING ON A SIX THOUSAND POUND TRUCK, I HAD TO STRUGGLE WITH TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL AWAY FROM OTHER VEHICLE ON THE PARKWAY AND EXIT THE PARKWAY WITHOUT CAUSING AN ACCIDENT. I IMMEDIATELY CALL FOR ROAD SIDE SERVICED AND THE TRUCK WAS TOWED AND RETURN TO THE DEALER FOR SERVICE. DURING THE INVESTIGATION, THE CHEVROLET SERVICE DEPARTMENT LOCATED IN VALLEY STREAM, NY STATED ON FEBRUARY 24, 2016 THAT THE ENTIRE ELECTRIC RACK OPINION FOR THE POWER STEERING WAS DEFECTED WHEN IT WAS INSTALLED DURING THE ASSEMBLY BY THE MANUFACTURE. THE 2016 SILVERADO 1500 TRUCK WAS PURCHASED NEW ON 2/08/2016, AND I HAVE CONCERNS THAT OTHER MECHANICAL PARTS IN THE VEHICLE MAY BE DEFECTED AND THE VEHICLE MAY BE UNSAFE TO DRIVE.

Summary of Complaint

 

WHILE DRIVING MY TRUCK IN 6TH GEAR AT 65 MPH, I APPROACHED A HILL AND I CHANGED THE GEAR SELECTOR TO THE MANUAL POSITION AND TO MY SURPRISE IT WENT INTO 4TH GEAR, RACING THE RPMS UP TO 3500 AND TRIED TO SLOW THE TRUCK DOWN QUICKER THAN I WANTED. THE BIGGER PROBLEM WITH THIS IS SLIPPERY SNOW COVERED ROADS, YOUR APT TO LOSE CONTROL. WHEN YOU DOWN SHIFT TO MANUAL IT SHOULD REMAIN IN THE GEAR YOUR IN,AND YOU PUSH A BUTTON AT YOUR DESCRETION AS NEEDED TO A LOWER GEAR. TOOK IT BACK TO THE DEALER AND THEY SAID THATS THE WAY IT IS,BUT THEY WERE SURPRISED IT DID THAT AS WELL. I FEEL ITS NOT SAFE
