2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #5

Dec 012004

Silverado 8-cyl

  • miles


The pressure line from the reservoir has a hole where the line passed near/behind the battery. It appears to have been burned or eaten away from touching battery. While driving through a storm the windshield washer had become inoperative. The consumer also discovered that when the washer was engaged, it would spray washer fluid all over the battery.

problem #4

May 142004

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,500 miles
Factory battery with side-mounted terminals leaked acid onto wiper fluid well mounted below it causing well to crack and drain. Dealer replaced the wiper well, but recommended I replace the battery as well. I replaced the battery myself (instead of letting the dealership do it) on May 17, but not before the old battery had once again leaked acid and cracked the new wiper fluid well. Old battery casing was not cracked or otherwise damaged; acid appeared to leak directly out of the terminals. This appears to be a design flaw by either ac delco for the battery itself or by GM for not properly isolating the battery from vibration. Furthermore, the foam "diaper" the old battery was wrapped in indicates that GM was aware of a potential leak issue for this battery. The foam does nothing to hinder vibration. Most of my 40000 miles are highway miles, and I seldom go off-roading (unless the potholes on the interstates of SC count).

problem #3

Dec 192003

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 28,000 miles
Parking brake sticks: I bought vehicle August 2000. Was called to active duty and deployed with military for 1 year beginning January 2003. Yes, that's less than the 3 year warranty. My wife used the vehicle occasionally and I have 31,000 miles on the truck and upon returning, the parking brake sticks. I have burnt out 2 sets or rear pads and rotors. Additionally, the slow and intermittent portion of the windshield wiper stopped working and the reverse/backup lights don't work. I contacted the dealer and GM and they both told me "too bad."
