Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #3

Silverado LS 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I purchased this vehicle for my husband in August of 2016 as a present and truthfully I went with the Chevy because growing up...it was Chevy or nothing. Best trucks out there. Well it seems that is not the case. Before I took possession of the vehicle the dealer I bought it from did an oil change as a courtesy. Now here it is almost 2 months later and the oil WAS GONE!!! White smoke coming out of the exhaust as though I had neglected to put oil in my vehicle that JUST HAD A NEW OIL CHANGE JUST A COUPLE MONTHS AGO!!! How can this be happening...well to my surprise...there is a common problem with Silverado's that Chevy has not addressed or recalled...its called AFM oil consumption..THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN A RECALL!!!!

Silverado LT 5.3L V8

Have been a Chevy owner for 25 years , have never had a truck use 2 quarts of oil in between oil change's . I have 4-5 neighbor's with the same problem , GM needs to come up with a fix . I will think twice about buying another Silverado , might have to look at a Toyota .

Silverado 5.3L Vortec

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

Same as the rest. Alot of runaround and no solution,other than getting a different truck. I know people with the same truck and some burn oil like mine and some say theres doesn't. Payed $100.00 for the dealership to hand me a bunch of papers to say this is normal. Only normal for the 2 stroke I got stuck with. Had a 1989 s10 Blazer with over 250,000 mi that was used the same, driven the same ,but didn't burn oil the same as this piece of crap. Just got a letter from GM stating my satisfaction with there product was important to them, related to a heater problem(had it in 4 times for various problems with that too) and they say they will pay for that fix. Step up to the plate and fix my burning oil problem. PS I bought stock in havoline oil and am now rich!!
