2003 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 012013


  • 36,000 miles


I was traveling on the highway at the speed of 50 mph and the van suddenly began to violently shake and shudder from the front wheels and up and including the shake of the steering wheel. I slowed the vehicle down by braking to 35 mph and it slowly stopped shaking. This has become a regular issue with the vehicle and I have taken it from shop to shop and mechanics cannot figure out the problem. I fear for my family's safety as well as my own when driving alone in this vehicle. It has been a year since this has begun. Mechanic has changed the shocks for the van and it has began to violently shake and shudder more frequently. I need to know why this is happening. I own a Chevrolet Express 2500 (2003).

Express 8-cyl

The rack and pinion unit has lots of play in the center. (approx 50K) the transmission slips in reverse from day one. The gas pedal shift from left to right about 3 inches. (approx 40K) this van has about 50 repairs under warranty. This van is used by my wife and 4 kids.
