problem #3

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,900 miles


Driveshaft carrier bearing gone bad on my 2000 S10 xtreme. Need the entire driveshaft replaced. Only 46000 miles on my car. A driveshaft should last longer than that.

S-10 Pickup

  • Automatic transmission

Within days of my purchase of the 2000 S-10 pickup the problem appeared. The truck bounces like it's going over a bump everytime the vechicle starts out from a stop, it has an automatic transmission. I have taken this back to the dealer several times, they are telling me that because this truck has a two piece driveshaft and that this is how it is supposed be. I am 52 years old and have been driving Chevrolet since I was 16, I've had trucks with two piece driveshafts before and never had this problem. I contacted General Motors and filed a complaint and after five months they sent a regional rep out he said this is how this vechicle was designed to perform, I drove another similiar truck on the lot and it did the same thing. Nothing has been done to correct this problem. I have observed the drive shaft by lying on the ground next to the truck as it starts out, you can see the drive shaft moving in the carrier bearing violently. This is of great concern because if the drive shaft should break towards the front it could cause the back of the truck to pole vault and cause a serious accident, worse at higher speeds. I will not allow anyone else to drive this truck because I feel it's a accident waiting to happen. This is very concerning because General Motors will not correct this problem on any trucks let alone admit there is one. I'm hoping you will investigate this problem and work GM to get this fixed before people get killed, if it hasn't happend already. I feel that any design problem or defect with the drivetrain of any vechicle is very serious, even if I trade this truck off this will be a problem for someone else and I'm going on record with you hoping to save a life. Just for your info I have been trained as a auto mechanic and worked in this field for 15 years, and have been very involved in drag racing during this time. I have been trained as a faa licensed airframe and powerplant mechanic and have worked in this field for over 20 years.
