2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Owner Comments

Silverado 1500

  • miles


My 2014 Silverado ltz 1500 has had a distracting vibration/shake since day one that is felt at almost all speeds. I notified them of immediately. They rebalanced the tires, it did not help. The changed all four tires two different times, it did not help. They did some special load balancing, it did not help. With 32K on it and my warranty running out I gave it back to them again for another rebalancing, that did not help. My brother fully agrees with me about the vibration/shake; we are both previous owners of Silverado 1500's that rode excellent. He now has a 2013 GMC Sierra that rides just fine. Frustrated with my ride and lack of resolution I test drove a 2016 Silverado ltz Z71 hoping to trade out of the issue; but the 2016 ride was no better. Chevrolet has an issue with these vehicles that needs to be resolved!

At around 15K miles the vehicle started shaking violently at speeds of 65-75 mph. It is hard to safely maintain highway speeds safely. I am very concerned for my safety and the safety of any passengers on the highway.

Electrical fire: My vehicle was having electrical issues. My radio would randomly change, turn on and off. The parking sensors would randomly go off even while driving forward, down the highway! I had a service appointment scheduled. However, prior to the appointment my vehicle burned up. The cause was found to be a control/computer board in the dash. The vehicle was parked at the time of the fire, it had been about 1 hour since driven last. I have several pictures, fire investigation report and insurance inspection report.

Vehicle is presently at the dealership for the fifth time. While driving with cruise, when changing lanes after turn signal is used the cruise shuts down. On several occasions while in the middle of a turn the dash lights flash, locks flip up N down, steering wheel jerks back N forth then vehicle dies. The incident that is reason for being in the shop now is, while in a parking lot, steering locked N unlocked, door locks again flipped up N down, vehicle died with no power. Could not unlock the vehicle, no power what so ever, key would no turn. Eventually I heard a psst noise and the power came back. The previous times taken to the dealer, I'm always told, cannot duplicate. This is a danger to me, my family. After being a faithful GM fan for over 40+ years they have lost this guy to another make of vehicle, especially after reading so many of the same complaints, as I, without resolve. They have lost my trust.

Was driving to physical therapy. Pulled up to a stop light and "stabilitrack failure" poped up. Was pulling into the doctors office not 8 min L8R came up again but this time steering wheel locked up then un locked then locked up multiple times while I was trying to pull into a parking space. Thankfully I was going at an extremely low speed and I could control the vehicle between it locking and unlocking. When I left the doctors office I noticed my settings reset. Ex dashboard display showed the radio station instead of the fuel economy. I simply changed it and noticed the computer erased my previous fuel economy. I'm assuming theirs some malfunction between the computer and these systems. And from the looks of it my vehicle isn't the only vehicle with this issue. Now my check engine light is on and I'll be taking this back to the dealer and it will be fixed and never happen again or I won't purchase another GM vehicle.

A/C line on my new truck keeps on breaking, vehicle is out of warranty by 10,000 miles, however this is a known problem by the manufacture, they now want to sell me a bracket to prevent the line from viberatiing, which is the cause of this line breaking. I find this not fair to anyone who is having this problem with this GM product, Silverado or GMC Sierra equipped with this engine.

When turning my truck left or right, there is a clunking/popping noise coming from under the truck (maybe from the front end). Chevy dealership in portland, tx confirmed the noise but could not find the origin of the noise. So the service manager stopped work and said that they were chasing a "ghost". so I spoke with the owner and he did nothing to help me and advice me to take my truck to another dealer for repair. This problem and many others have been occurring so I am not buying another Chevy in my life, thanks GM for producing another screwed up vehicle.

The vehicle was purchased on August 27th 2014 and had a bad vibration on the drive home. It has a wobble sensation at 35-45 mph felt strongest at 43 mph that feels like it has a bent wheel but it doesnt. When you get to 65-70 mph there is a strong vibration from the truck felt strongest at 68 mph and it only occurs on smooth level roads and even changing lanes does not change the vibration at all so it is not related to the road conditions other then being flat and smooth. The dealer has made five unsuccessful attempts to fix it already and cannot find the problem and cannot fix the problem and has refused to try to fix it anymore. After researching this issue I have found that one out of five GM trucks (Chevy & GMC) have this same issue even though there are not many people reporting this yet. Do not buy or let anyone you know buy a Chevy & GMC truck in the 2014 or 2015 years, 1 in 5 are lemons the vibrations are so bad that it will make you car sick after a few miles and can aggravate existing conditions such as people with back issues. This problem also greatly reduces the trade-in or resale value of the vehicle and will make selling it yourself very problematic if not impossible. If you look on youtube you will see people are starting to post some videos to show this vibration problem.

Driving on the freeway at 70 mph and the kid in the back of the crewcab pickup opened the rear door. The truck locks the doors when it is put into drive. But when he pulled on the door latch it opened up. I thought the doors are not supposed to open while the vehicle is moving. When I tested this at home, with the truck running and in drive, any of the doors will open up on the 2nd pull on the latch. The 1st pull unlocks the door and on the 2nd pull it opens the door. I have had many other trucks and they never did this. Seems like a safety issue to me. Can youtell me if the NHTSA has any safety rules on this? I called the dealer and talked with the service advisor and he confirmed that other 2014 Silverado do this to, so he had no fix for it. There is a child lock out switch for the read doors, but that would have to be manually set every time you put it in drive and would not lock either of the front two doors. Please let me know if there is a safety rule for this. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
