On Oct 19, 2009 I bought a new Silverado 1500. Worst mistake I ever made. On 10/30/09 I had to take it back to the dealer for sqeealing belts and brakes. They couldn't find anything. On 1/12/2010 I took it in for dashboard and lights dimming while driving. Couldn't find anything again but told me it was the alternator charging up. 2/8/10 took it in for the "bowtie" emblem peeling. They replaced it. 4/7/10 took in again for "bowtie" peeling again. Replaced again. 4/20/10 right rear shock went out while hauling nothing. Replaced the shock. 4/26/10 engine light came on. Took to dealer and they found it was the "fuel tank pressure sensor". They replaced it. 4/27/10 took to Chevy body shop to get the "orange peel" finish rubbed out. They had the vehicle 26 hours and did NOT give me a loaner. Left buffer swirl marks all over the tailgate. Took back 5/5/10 to have it buffed out again. Took back to the dealer twice for the On Star reading wrong. On Star would say my left front tire was low when the right front was completely flat. On 2/8/10 I had the tires filled with Nitrogen. 36 lbs pressure to be exact. A few days later the On Star read that one tire had 36 lbs, one had 37, one had 38, and one had 39. Took to dealer, they checked with their guage and they all read 36 lbs of pressure. I talked to Janice (my district rep) 6 times. Every time she told me that there had to be something GM could do to compensate me for the problems. All 6 times, she called me back the next day and said ' I'm sorry, there's nothing we can do". GM can't sell a quality vehicle or back the ones they do sell.
