2010 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

Silverado 6-cyl

  • 11,951 miles


We were driving our 2010 Chevy Silverado (with 11,951 miles on it) on the freeway in the hov lane at approximately 70 mph. The cruise control was on. Without warning, the truck jumped 3 times and then apparently the engine just shut off. There was no acceleration, no power steering or power brakes. Once the truck came to a stop, we tried to start it again. The starter turned but the truck would not start. After approximately 10 minutes, we were able to get the truck started and moved to a safe location. Then we called and had it towed to a local Chevy dealer. The report we got back is as follows: " perform system checks, scan check shows no codes stored in any modules. Road test multiple times without failure, let run in stall for 3 hours. No stall ever occurred. No repair required at this time." I questioned the mechanic about checking fuel system and he said since it was working there was nothing to check. So we have no idea what happened to the truck, but we are afraid to drive it. The incident was a major inconvenience to us, but more important, it was an extremely dangerous situation. We are fortunate that no accident occurred and that no one was injured.

Engine and electrical system shuts itself off, this has happened more than twenty times since we have owned this vehicle and GM just ignores it.
