Silverado 1500

  • 3,500 miles


At highway speeds between 58 and 74 mph, there is a vibration that shakes the truck. My first trip to the dealership, they said 3 of the 4 tires needed to be replace, which was covered under warranty. The truck had approximately 3500 miles, when I took it the first time. The problem was stable for a few thousand miles, and then started to get bad, I called and scheduled an appointment, and the truck has been at the dealership for over a week now, and they have replace the one tire that wasn't orginally replaced. They also said they are looking at the exhaust system.

  • 10,000 miles
While in motion, I've noticed a shaking coming from the rear end of my 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 double cab. My truck sits on factory 20 inch rims. I've had the wheels balanced when I replaced the tires. Shaking continues. Shaking more noticeable after reaching speeds of 60 M.P.H. and above. I've been told by the service manager of the dealer I purchased the truck from that it is a known issue but there is no fix or solution. The shaking first started after the truck reached 10,000 miles and has not gotten any better in the past 5,500 miles. The problem is persisting and possibly getting worse.

Silverado 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 12,000 miles
Truck began to have the Chevy shakes about the 12K mile point and has increasingly gotten worse the more mileage the truck gains ( currently 14K miles) I have called and talked to technicians about this and they ensured me that its normal. I've owned several trucks and I have never not been able to go over speeds of 55 without having terrible shakes and wobbles in my truck. Chevrolet needs to address this properly and fix the issue or buy back the trucks that are affected by this issue, when a person spends 50K + on a vehicle this should be the last thing the should have to worry about is feeling safe in their vehicle. I will never buy another Chevrolet product again due to not only this but a number of other issues I have with the truck including hard shifting and extreme lack of power.

Silverado 1500

  • 200 miles
The trucks have a vibration that is felt in the steering wheel, floor, seats, accelerator and brake pedals etc. While driving. The major consensus it that the worst speed it 76 mph, yet it is felt to a lesser degree at any speeds, with some being worse than others. There are a large number of trucks with this issue, yet General Motors refuses to do anything about it. It began within a couple weeks of purchasing my truck. I found people first reporting the issue in 2015, and more recently it continues with the 2015 and 2016 model years.

Silverado 1500

  • 2,200 miles


October 31, 2014 on my home from work I heard a bang. The truck pulled very hard to the left taking me into the concrete barrier that divides the highway. Vehicle was in motion us highway 41/45 65 mph. After the truck was investigated at the dealer to give an estimate on the damage it was discovered the left rear axel was broken. Questioning the dealer about this issue and not getting anywhere I talked to different mechanics that I know after a week or so it was discovered there was a recal for insuffcient heat treated rear axles talking to the dealer and I was told this did not pertain to my vehicle as the recall was taken care of at the factory. I cantacted Chevrolet and was told that because I had given the ok for the dealer to make the repairs. My insurance company would need to fole paper work against Chevrolet which myself I believe is wrong. I was also told by the dealer broken axle was typical of this kind of impact. There is no damage on the side panel or rear of the truck I do have pictures on my phone which I have not downloaded to my computer.

Silverado 1500

  • 10,000 miles
The contact owns a 2015 Chevrolet Silverado. While driving at high speeds, the vehicle shook and vibrated extensively in the front. Upon turning the vehicle off and restarting the vehicle, there was less shaking, but the strong vibration continued. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the bed cover was aftermarket and the wind was causing the strong vibration and shaking to occur. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The failure continued. The VIN was not available. The approximate failure mileage was 10,000.

Silverado 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 15,372 miles
New truck, 15372 miles, no off roading or rough surface driving. Pulls to the right. Concerned about suspension/steering failure. The vehicle pulls to the right. Two Chevy dealers have looked at the issue with negative results. There is no reason other than manufacturing error that would cause the problem. Both Chevy dealers have reported that the tires are in good condition and one did an alignment. The alignment, I paid for, did not resolve the issue. I am concerned because I use the vehicle to pull a travel trailer as it is designed for. Chevy, in my opinion, is not responsive to my concerns. I am concerned about loosing the ability to control/steer the vehicle if the unidentified issue is not discovered or resolved by Chevy. I propose that defective parts, or tires have been used on the vehicle when built and they are failing. Sincerely the consumer stated the vehicle pulled the right. Updated 10/15/15
