problem #3

Mar 182005

Silverado 3500 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,270 miles
I was backing out of the parking spot I had been all day at work and the passanger front wheel would not straighten out. I could not pull forward or backward, I was stuck in the center of the parking lot. Then have it towed to a repair shop to have it looked at. The tie rod had stripped and come off. The repair person told me that the driver front also was stripped and would have soon failed as well. They were both replaced and the truck was aligned. This was an unexpected expense, there was no indication by myself or my husband that anything was loose or coming apart. I was one block away from getting on the interstate to go home. As I understand it I could have lost control of my truck had the tie rod failed while I was driving.
