Silverado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles
Speedometer has become erratic on a 2004 Chevy Silverado @ 47,000 miles. Started approx. 5/14/07. Does not work right mainly in the afternoons - speed indicates 0-10 mph whether doing 50 mph or 70 mph. Contacted Chevy dealer on 5/25/07 and have not heard back from them. I feel as if this is a safety issue that Chevy should repair and recall.

: the contact stated the cd player in the vehicle over heated, resulting in hot air blowing through the air vents. The air conditioner or heat was not in use when the hot air was blowing. The vehicle was taken to the local dealership for inspection. The dealer could not duplicate the problem and no repairs were made.

Speedometer and tachometer failure. Speedometer needle swings clockwise and goes past 120 mph - even when vehicle is stationary. Unable to determine vehicle's speed. Very unsafe situation. Tachometer is inaccurate. Cannot determine if or when engine is being over-revved. This could lead to engine disintegration. Both of the above has occured in a vehicle that is less than one year old. Several delaerships advising this is getting to be a common occurance.

I recently had a problem with the heater motor in my 2004 Chevy Silverado. The heater motor began to make a squealing noise. I took it to the dealership where I purchased it. Mechanics looked it over and I was told the bearing in the heater motor was seizing up, although the dealership didn't have a new heater motor in stock they were able to get one in a matter of hours. My truck was fixed that same day.I must say I was very impressed and happy with the service I received. Thank you.
