Silverado 2500

  • 123,000 miles


The low beam sylvania headlight bulb in my 2001 Chevrolet 2500 hd pickup truck went bad and started my under hood area of my truck on fire. Much of the underhood equipment was damaged before I could put it out. Sylvania takes no responsibility for their product and refuses to cover damages even after receiving the defective bulb and many pictures of the damage.

Silverado 2500 6-cyl

  • 1,500 miles
103,000 miles on 2001 Chevy. Silverado P/U, 4th time that brakes need to be replaced, anti lock noise was constant since taking delivery from dealer. Was told this was normal sound. I don't think so. Many close calls for rear end collisions which would have been my fault esp. At speeds as low as 30 mph. Just found out that there may be a problem. Also, antifreeze complaint with smell. Smell makes us nauseous.faucet -running sound coming from just below dash but under hood, paid dealer to fix twice, went back to GM dealer to try and remedy for the third time since it was still under the shops warranty and of course no longer in business. Last complaint, daytime running lamps need to be replaced all the time. Replaced one day, less than 48 hours later, need to be replace again. Rusted from water in headlamp.

Silverado 2500

  • 131,000 miles
- the contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado. While traveling 45 mph the vehicle went over a bump, which caused the vehicle's headlights to turn off. He tried to turn the headlights back on, but they wouldn't power back on. He turned on the high beams and they would work, the problem was with the low beams. The following day he took the vehicle apart and he found that the wire that feeds the multi function switch and the combination switch had melted due to a T wilt function in the insulation and had turned black, which was due to high heat. It could have caught on fire. He did the repair job himself, but he believes that it could cause a fire on another vehicle and that it should be recalled. The current and failure mileage was 131,000.
