History, Purchased a new 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic Crew Cab (still in plastic) in early 2007. In 1st year of ownership (Power Steering Pump failed, Steering Columb Broke, over head console fell off, paint on dash came off, tail lights fell off, fan belt failed ..... Today my truck left me stranded on the road in 20 degree weather. It just died. I spoke to other owners that said they were good trucks but asking more they had some of the same issues. I guess I am not used to that many failures in a 25,000 dollar car. Love the trucks look and comfort, but that's not doing me any good on the side of the HWY. GM has some serious issue. You can't just say we are the best and hope it's true. They have been making this thing forever. How come they can't get it right like Toyota. I am trading & selling my bonds when this trash is paid off.
Its always the same ol story isn't it ? Someone , not even from this country comes online to discredit a good ol boys truck . So we are to believe that in the first year his power steering pump failed, his steering column broke ,his tail lights fell off , paint came off the dash ( is it paint or plastic ? ) and the fan belt failed. after all these problems and 3 years later this Columbian dude tells us the truck stalled in 20 degree weather . On top of all this BS he spoke with others who incidently had the very same issues. I checked his previous posts and can see no mention ever of all these problems . Then he makes a ridiculous claim that things like this dont happen to Toyotas . I guess thats why Toyotas dont have repair depts behind their stores . Yup , Toyotas are flawless. Could he be lying like most consumers do ? Nah , ya think ?

Have you ever heard of Ford??? Their F150 leads truck sales
as does their 250 & 350 (their super duty trucks)
There might be a reason why they have lead the market in
truck sales for over 30 years.
Good Luck to you and I'm sorry about truck problems, it's
awful to spend alot of money and have a lemon:(
<How come they can't get it right like Toyota.>
Yeah the Toyota Tundra is real great most likely one day you will be driving down the road and the chassis will fall off due to their rust issues and recalls regarding the under carriage.
Don't get me wrong Toyota for the most part are great. Although, if you were to keep your truck for some years I would say the American made would last longer over time then Toyota's. Toyota just gets them right for the short term with less recalls and problems. You might have to dump more money over the long term in an American made truck in parts, although it will be on the road longer.
Best Trucks are Fords, just look at construction job sites or people that actually use them for work and not the occassional lets go down a dirt road and call it off roading. GMC and Chevy trucks are for girls. The person that buys a Chevy is more concerned about how they look and what their wife or girfriend says about the truck. Although, like the looks of Chevy Trucks.
Sounds like a simple remedy . Have you ever heard of the Lemon Law ? I bought a brand new Toyota Tacoma that had similar issues . My spare tire fell out from under the bed and rolled down the highway causing a 4 car collision . My headlites came loose and fell off and I drove over one of them . My seat came loose after only 900 miles and caused me to slide back and crash into a tree . Toyota has plenty of problems lately . Even my Toyota salesman offered to sell me a Ford . His boss owns the Ford dealer down the street . Anyway , I gave the service manager $ 1000 and he got Toyota to buy the car back under the Lemon Law . What a country -AMERICA !
I have a Sierra 3/4-ton 4WD pickup with lots of issues, but they are all design issues, not build quality. The four-wheel-drive is a joke; I can sit with one wheel spinning and none of the other three take over. The turning radius is about 75 feet. I have to make a five-point turn where my neighbor's Toyota does a U-turn. And I've had the brakes totally fail three times in one year becasue the brake lines can shear off in deep snow. So it doesn't go, steer, or stop very well. And GM has been making these beasts for HOW long? On top of that, it gets 10 mpg. None of that is the fault of the UAW workers.
