2016 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 232016

Colorado WT 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,248 miles


After backing up, and putting truck in drive, the truck surged forward without touching the gas. First time was leaving a grocery store. Second time was backing out of parking space at condo. Third time was leaving a business. This was worse than other two times. On 6/23/16 I was at a marina at Lake of the Ozark. After backing out of parking space and putting in drive, the truck surged so fast and hard, it threw my head back against head rest. It surged so fast that within three to four seconds it shot off the sea wall and landed in the lake about ten feet from wall.

I was drifting away and sinking. Electric windows were dead and too much pressure to open doors. Used a hammer on window until hammer broke. Finally, a bystander jumped in and finally broke the window with a piece of concrete block. The water was up to my waist when I went out the window. I shredded my right leg and was taken to hospital by ambulance for stitches. Thankfully, no one was with me. All four instances happened within a two week period.

This was the most terrifying experience of my life. I have heard from friends that their Colorado and GMC Canyon was doing similar things.

Surely someone at Chevrolet/ GMC knows something but aren't talking.
