Silverado 3500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The frame was cracking around the front wheels. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who saw the cracks but could not determine what caused the cracks. The insurance company took pictures and determined that the vehicle did not hit anything to cause the cracks in the frame. The consumer uses the vehicle as a trash truck. He replaces the vehicles parts frequently because of the amount of wear the vehicle sustains. The consumer feels the frame should never have cracked.
