problem #4

Jul 072005

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
No incident..,however while in Alaska in 2005. I was told by a state trooper that my vehicle side mirrors do not meet dot standards, they are too small to properly view the side of the vehicle. My vehicle: 2000 CK3500, crew cab, 4X4, duel rear wheels..,pulling a 29' travel trailer. The trooper is right, my mirrors don't even view beyond the rear fenders much less the trailer. My question is; how can the vehicle industry put a product on sale if it does not meet the requirements it was made to do? nobody buys a vehicle as described without using it to pull something and the vehicle should meet those requirements per the standards set by dot nationally and by states.

The right side exterior mirror can not be adjusted to avoid blind spots and left side mirror has unnecessary wide field of vision.

Silverado 3500 4WD

  • Automatic transmission

After purchasing vehicle consumer realized that when driving and another vehicle pulls up besides him on the passenger's side, he is not able to see the other vehicle in the mirror. Contacted dealer, dealer claimed they have a blind spot, and that's how they are designed. They are camper mirrors and very much a hazard.

Extended exterior mirror problem with ajusting and creating a blind spot. If a vehicle is almost on the side of consumer's vehicle he would not be able to see that vehicle unless he sticks head out of window. Dealer notifed.
