Silverado 1500 Hybrid

  • 0 miles


On August 13th, 2008 I went to darryl burke Chevy to consider buying a new truck and trading my 2006. During the trade in appraisal, the sales manager ask if the vehicle had ever been in an accident? I informed that no it had not. He said the tire, safety, and parts label VIN did not match the VIN in the windshield. I looked and witnessed the same information. The sales manager said that this would drastically effect the trade in value of my vehicle because it appears that replacement parts have been used. While researching this issue, I found that this must have occurred in the manufacturing process because there are 2 other vehicles which were shipped to other states that have the same problem. They have the labels on them that should be on my vehicle. The national insurance crime bureau has examined the other vehicles and determined that the manufacturer caused this mishap. I need to know if NHTSA can help with this issue because obviously most any dealer is going to recognize the discrepancy and may result in a depreciation in the value of my vehicle. The following vins appear on my vehicle. Windshield, safety label, part label match windshield, tire load label. Thanks for any help.

2006 Chevy truck with brake system and suspension problems. Customer states he has had problems with this vehicle since he purchased it. Consumer wants to have this vehicle checked. The consumer stated the brakes made a noise and would shake when coming to a stop. The consumer removed the wheels and discovered the rotors had grooved out pretty badly for a vehicle that only had 20,000 miles. When the consumer went to the dealer the last time, they informed him they would replace the brakes one more time and after that the warranty would end. Updated 12/12/2007 the consumer stated drivers front door harder to close than passenger and the consumer further stated hearing noise in lft wheel area. Updated 12/12/07

I bought a 2006 Silverado ext cab LT3 at the end of February 2006. In March headliner came down. Replaced two weeks later. Six weeks later headliner came down again the second time. Replaced headliner one week later. Two days after replacing headliner, it came down the third time. I contacted area rep to have him research the headliner issue (which I already went to two other dealerships and they are selling these trucks with the defected headliners and knowingly selling them). I waited a full month then went for another replacement which took two weeks to come in. One week later headliner coming down again the 4th time. Area rep said he put in a tsb to show it is a defect that the headliners are cut too short. I checked on NHTSA and no tsb's are listed about a Silverado headliner. People haven't noticed this because it isn't obvious. You have to look at the top of your open doors where the headliner meets the rubber gasket and you will see the cut of the fabric of the headline and the molded headliner piece with it. I've called area rep and it's been 3 days and no return call. I was told it has nothing to do with the factory sunroof either. If the factory knows the headliner's are defective why do they keep sending the ones that are defective instead of waiting till the right ones come out?
