Silverado Z71 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,604 miles

FIRST TIME IT WAS THE FRONT LEFT BRAKE LINE AND I DROVE INT A DITCH TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT. THIS TIME THE RIGHT BRAKE LINE BLEW OUT AND I HIT THE CORNER OF MY GARAGE. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE DOLLAR AMOUNT WILL BE TO REPAIR EVERYTHING, BUT AT LEAST THERE WAS NO LOSS OF LIFE OR BODILY INJURY EITHER TIME. I OWN 4 DIFFERENT CHEVERLOT'S AT THIS TIME, I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER AND WILL GET RID OF WHAT I HAVE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER ONE, I WILL VOICE MY CONCERNS TO EVERYONE I MEET AND TALK TO.

Continue to have rust issues with this vehicle including replacing rotors, differential cover, and other frame/running gear components. must have used some very cheap steel for parts manufacturing. My next truck will not be a GM product.
