Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 14,285 miles


Service brakelines rotted and caused a complete loss of service brakes - while driving and close to home - used emergency brakes and low gear to get to home. Spoke to friend at Chevy dealer. They are having problems with this truck series due to corrosion and premature rusting. Truck is currently in garage due to failure (corrosion) of transmission cooling lines. Current mileage 15,211. Lost both anti-lock brake modules and alternator and temperature sensors.

The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. The contact stated that oil began leaking from the transmission cooling lines while driving 35 mph. The contact called the dealer regarding the leak and the dealer advised that because the vehicle was outside of warranty and there were no recalls that they were unable to provide any assistance. The contact stated that he was able to locate numerous complaints online regarding the failure for his year, make and model. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 51,000.
