Complaint received via E-mail. "we have a truck which we brought brand new and have had it back to the dealer for vibration ever since we bought it." They have done nothing, but balance at the tire. We have had brand new Goodyear tires put on the truck, mounted, balanced, etc, . and it continued to vibrate. They said there was nothing wrong with it, yet it continued to vibrate between 40-50 mph. We recently found a service bulletin on the truck #3009. The passenger door lock was falling off, the passenger side rear door was hard to shut and the driver door lock popped out.

I had two inside door panel replaced already. These two things were fixed from the engine compartment, it gets worse when it is colder. Fuel gauge is inaccurate and jumps around when truck is not in a moving gear. I am very upset about the last two, because Chevy says the truck is working within "normal Chevy parameter". I have asked many mechanics and they say either one should be happening. The date below is an approximate time the last two started. I also have had it in twice for both of these problems.

While driving, brake pedal will go all the way to the floor when braking suddenly. Also while driving on highway, consumer slammed on brakes to avoid a collision and the rear brakes locked up and vehicle slid. Also the engine vibrates when the air condition is on, the dealer repositioned clamp, when it is rainy hard the drivers door leaks at the top weatherstrip, the exhaust vibrates when vehicle is in reverse, the passenger seat rattles.
