Sierra 4WD 8-cyl

  • 95,815 miles
My wife was driving approximately 45mph in fall river when all of a sudden we heard a large bang underneath the vehicle, upon looking in the rear mirror I noticed a large steel item shoot out from underneath the vehicle sliding fast behind the vehicle with sparks noticed as it was dark, and into oncoming traffic which had to swerve to avoid an accident and avoid the propelled steel leaf spring. No accident occurred, leaf spring was recovered from the road after pulling vehicle over and noted it came from right rear of vehicle where it had snapped off. This incident created an extremely potentially serious condition which could have caused it to go into the vehicle traveling behind us. Upon bringing this vehicle to kelly's tires in middleboro, they stated and I quote "let me guess your vehicle is a 2009 Sierra, this has been a common problem with this particular make, model and year vehicle, but there is no recall at this time". this problem is serious, not to mention very costly for the consumer to repair a faulty part! this vehicle should have a recall before someone gets seriously hurt if it happens at a high rate of speed, because at the low rate of 45, we were very lucky it did not kill someone. No excuse GM needs to recall/replace/reimburse its consumers...updated 06/03/14 updated 8/22/2017
