My vehicle has side board steps. The tread pattern is such that when wet or icy the step is a virtual skid pad. When you place weight on the foot on the tread it immediately slips out from under your position. Last year I broke a foot when I slipped and this year it was an ankle. Tread design needs to be improved and turned 90. as designed there is no traction protection. Just the opposite, it promotes lack of traction resulting in slipping and falling.

The contact owns a 2014 GMC Sierra 1500. The contact received a manufacturer recall concerning the trailer hitch. The dealer indicated that the manufacturer had only been sending 1 to 2 parts every two weeks and that the contact was placed on a waiting list due to the parts being on back order. The contact was unable to determine when the parts would become available. The VIN was not available. The manufacturer was unable to provide a specific time frame.

There is a service bulletin from GM about frame rust on all GMC 2014 1500 Sierra and Chevy 2014 Silverado 1500 light duty pick up trucks. The frames and some important bolts are highly rusted. They only touch-up spots they can access at the dealership. The facility where they were produced used a poor quality waxy paint coating. The dealership cannot guarantee a complete solution for this frame rust. This is a very dangerous problem in the future of the life of the truck. The frame could decay and the bolts can break off. This is not fair for a $40,000 to $60,000 truck. You can spot the rust right from the dealership new truck lot. I read on the GM truck forum on the internet hundreds if not thousands of these trucks have this issue. I will feel very unsafe driving this truck a few years from now. There are some photos of a few rusted areas in the GM service bulletin which you obtain.

On 4/10/2014 I factory ordered an 2014 GMC 1500 crew cab 4X4 short bed with a max trailer towing package. This towing package had a maximum trailering weight of 11,800# and a gcwr of 17,500#. I took receipt of the vehicle on 5/29/14. On 6/4/14 GM released document id: 3931537 stating that the gcvwr in the owners manual is incorrect. The max trailer weight is now being stated as 11,200# and a gcwr of 16,700# after the release of this document. This 800# gcvwr reduction is an issue as the vehicle was originally purchased and sized with the original towing capacities and gcwr. At this time, GM does not manufacturer any 1/2 ton trucks that will accommodate the original towing capacities that I factory ordered and purchased my vehicle at. I have been working with the dealership on this issue since August 22,2014 and there has been no resolution to this point; therefore, I am filing this complaint.
