Notes: The 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 has an early trend of the transmission shifting hard, surging & jerking.

At the moment these trucks are still under warranty. However this transmission problem shows up right away with the average reported mileage only around 3,000 miles, so for now the 2017 Silverado earns our "Beware of the Clunker" badge.

problem #1

Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71 6.2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,637 miles


Once again why in the HELL is my $62,000.00 Silverado LTZ Z71 with the 6.2 L motor and pathetic shifting 8 speed transmission now STALLING too? I was driving home from the store and the vehicle was at operating temperature and I slowed down from 40 mph to 15 mph to enter my sub and my vehicle stalled. I put the truck in Neutral and while coasting restarted the truck and put it in Drive several yards later it stalled again. I repeated the same steps and got the same result a third time. Good thing I was within a few blocks of my home.

Each time the vehicle started with ease and the battery gauge was at its normal 14+ position. I decided to hook up my battery Tender and trickle charge the battery. It was on my truck from 5:30 PM until 8:20 AM and the tester read green meaning that it had a fully charged battery. I have a 26 mile drive into work every morning and it consists of approximately 85% Interstate driving at 70 mph. While merging onto the Interstate, I floored the gas pedal and tried accelerating rather quickly from 40 mph to 70 mph and to my surprise the truck STALLED again at about 60 mph. I put neutral and restarted it with ease and put it back into Drive and floored the gas pedal again which resulted in the exact same outcome, my truck stalled. I restarted it the same way and drove the final 3.5 miles to work. I can't wait to see what my truck has in store for me tonight during my ride home. No Check Engine lights ever came on.

This really is frustrating 5 times this truck has stalled in less than 45 minutes of total drive time. This is ridiculous. It really makes me wonder why I even decided to spend my hard earned money on a General Motors product after driving other makes of vehicles for several trouble free years.

Show some pride in your product and own up to the inherent problems that several customers are forced to deal with on a daily basis and fix them instead the B.S. software updates that have never fixed anything in the last 3 trucks I have owned: 2013 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT2 Z71 Extended Cab 5.3 L, 2016 GMC 1500 Sierra SLT Z71 Double Cab 5.3L and my current abomination 2017 Chevy 1500 LTZ Z71 Double Cab 6.2L.
