The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact stated that while driving he heard a very loud grinding noise in the front end of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the front passenger side wheel bearing was defective and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure but did not offer any assistance. The vehicle was repaired. The failure mileage was 68,000 and the current mileage was 71,000.

Silverado 3500 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission

I recently purchased a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado, it is leaning very badly to the driver side of the vehicle. I was told the vehicle is not damaged, bent, or warped in any way. I was told it was just built "that badly, and should have never passed an inspection of any kind". the dealership first tried to use the slack adjuster bars that are made to adjust this kind of problem. This fix did not work since it was leaning so badly. They ordered special parts (a shim and longer U-bolts) and installed them a couple days later. This also did not come even close to fixing the problem, and I was once again sent on my way. I am now waiting for a response from GM, while I am still being forced to drive my unsafe vehicle which I feel is at great risk for a rollover.
