2006 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

I see you recalling BMW cars for lights failing! why don't you recall GM trucks and SUV's for failing running lights" from their introduction they have been advertised as a safety feature! I would guess 97% of all GM trucks and SUV's have one or both of the lights not working! an obvious design flaw!! my 2006 Silverado has had the passenger side light replaced 4 times. If this is not a safety issue, even though advertised as such, it cost owners a big sum of money to keep repairing them because of GM's obvious faulty design!! why does GM get a pass but BMW does no" thanks

Left turn signal does not work all the bulbs and fuses have been checked and has no problem. The trouble appears to be in the electrical connection. It is dangerous to drive due to making unsafe left turns. The passenger side door interior light stays on when all others go off. Has been reported to 2 dealers and they have done nothing.

2006 Chevy Silverado with faulty brake lights. Consumer stated that the brake lights have failed four times in ten months. This failure almost got the consumer in a serious accident. The consumer discovered the bulbs were not burning out, but the problem was due to arcing caused by poorly designed socket contacts. The consumer stated GM needs to redesign the socket to provide line contact at the socket/bulb electrical interface. The present design provides contact only.
