problem #12

Jul 012007

Sierra 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Upon purchasing the vehicle I noticed prior to purchase that the fuel gauge did not read accuratly. The dealership agreed to reimburse me for the cost of the fix. After a day or two durring a short in town drive I noticed my speedometer was acting "jerky". I arrived at my destination, but when I left the speedometer was reading 60mph at a stop. At what I estimated to be 65mph the speedometer read 120mph. GM has been aware of this wide spread problem for almost a year but they refuse to issue a recall on a obviously flawed product.

Sierra 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles
The speedometer on my 2003 GMC Sierra sle is faulty. It began at approximately 37,000 miles and reads between 20-60 mph higher than my actual speed. The problem was initially isolated to the speedometer, but now my tachometer is now reading 800-2000 RPM higher than actual and the amp meter has also started to reading high. I contacted a local GMC dealership and got an estimate of around $600 dollars to fix the problem. The technician I spoke to at the GMC dealership informed me that there have been many similar complaints from GMC owners but no recall has been initiated. I did some research online and found discussion forums where many other GMC owners are experiencing the same problems. I believe this to be a safety issue that needs to be addressed and GMC confronted with a solution.
