Silverado 3500 4WD

  • miles


Brand new truck, at 639 miles 2 tires found to be out of round. There has been a vibration from 38-45 miles per hr. In the body of the truck. Tires rotated and balanced at 7,420 miles, problem still there. Truck taken to a Chevrolet dealer tires needed balanced again at 9,705 miles. Problem still there, truck taken to a Firestone dealer at 11,366 miles. Problem still present. Its due to go back to the dealer for the third time, for the same problem, plus another thing for the third time. There is no way tires should have to be balanced this many times on a brand new truck that has never been taken off road or abused. On in the body of the truck around 38-45 mlies an hr. Dealer put on two new tires. I now have 11,000 miles on truck, the tires have been balanced 3 times, not counting what the dealer did at 639 miles. They were balanced & rotated at 7420 miles, problem still there, truck taken to Chevrolet dealer, tires balanced at 9,705 mproblem still. (dot number: W273 tiresize: P265/75R16)

While traveling at approximatley 55 mph on a 2 lane highway, there was a very loud popping noise resulting in complete loss of steering control. Consumer was able to bring vehicle to a stop while vehicle drifted to the right, not to left into oncoming traffic. Dealership was examining vehicle, and has yet to make a determination as to cause of this defect. Please provide any additional information/attachments.
