2006 Crew Cab Silverado- Bought used in 2010 with 32K original miles. At my 1st inspection (Pa. has annual inspection requirements)needed new brake lining. Didn't get the inspection from the dealer, rather my trustworthy local mechanic.Original lining was rusted & pitted terribly. I inquired & researched to find Chevy was/is aware they used inferior materials & I actually recouped some of the replacement cost. Now I'm experiencing similar situation with brake fluid tubing rusting out. Replaced one last month & just dropped the truck off for another.My mechanic is recommending replacing the remaining tubes.Anyone know of any trends where the tubes are rusting out on others? Anyone know of a good web site that collects autombile defect trends, not advertized as recalls, but if challenged, Mfg ackowledges the defect & provides some type of relief?
i have an 2004 chevy silverado 1500 2wd 4.3 the truck has 182,000 and i have never had a problem until now. i was driving and i was at a red light and i punched on the gas and 10 secondes later the trucks shuts of and i pull over try startin it and it wont start so i waited 5 mins it started but the light came on what could that be? i went to advance auto zone and car quest they put it on the computer and it read code p0016 crankshaft position senior and cam sensor so i replaced them and the light still not staying off what can that be?
my 06 silverado has 100,000 miles and it always seems like i have 2 step on it and kick it down constantly. The check engine lite is not on and i have plenty of fuel pressure and converters are not plugged. the garage said there is nothing wrong,but i think there is. It is a 4.8L 4 door. has any1 had this happen,i cant stand to drive it
have an06 silverado. change fuel pump and my fuel gauge is not working
Problem with suspension vibration/frame beaming and loose steering, and audio speakers are bad. Otherwise, this is a solid truck.
Just bought the truck so far i love it great truck
Only real issues have been:

- 17.5 Highway MPG
- Headlights dim when windows are operated
- Transmission "Clunks" from 1st to 2nd when the vehicle has been slowed down and then speeding back up; like when you hit a traffic jamb coming off the highway and then on the off-ramp you are starting to accelerate again.
