2005 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #7

Apr 012011


  • 95,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Colorado. While driving various speeds, the contact noticed that the ABS and traction controls would illuminate without applying pressure to the brakes. The air conditioner switch would shut on and off while driving over a pot hole. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure and advised the contact that there were no recalls. The contact did not inform the manufacturer nor was the vehicle repaired. A local mechanic inspected the vehicle and advised the contact that the electrical system needed to be repaired; however, it was non repairable. The current mileage was approximately 96,000 and the failure mileage was 95,000.

: the contact stated while driving various speeds in normal driving conditions, there was a pronounced vibration within the front suspension. The vehicle was inspected by an independent repair shop who determined the vehicle needed an alignment. Afterwards, the problem persisted. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who determined the vehicle needed another front alignment. The contact expressed concern that there may be an issue with the tires wearing prematurely on their own. The tires were general P23575/R15. Additionally, the dealer determined that poor alignment caused the premature wear of those tires. The manufacturer was not notified.

The vehicle was taken to two different Chevrolet dealers. It had a rough idle. The consumer felt that it was due to defective tires. They were not willing to replace the tires. Consumer stated there were bubbles on the tires on the sidewall. Ameritech TR general tires. This started a month or two after purchase, but the tires were getting worse with more use. The Chevrolet dealership stated that it was the suspension, but they were not fixing the problem although it was under warranty.
