On January 22, 2020 I started the vehicle with using the mychevrolet phone app. I got into the truck and pushed the ignition button. The following three warnings appeared on the instrument panel: 1) brake system failure 62 mph top speed, 2)service trailer brake system, 3) service ESC ABS, brake, traction control, and check engine lights illuminated. I turned the vehicle off and turned it back on again using the ignition button and all warnings and lights cleared except the check engine remained illuminated. The vehicle was parked when all of this happened. I received an email from onstar reporting that an issue with the antilock braking system was detected. This vehicle had just been into the dealer the prior week to fix one recall associated with the battery cable, and two other recalls associated with the brakes.

When I was driving this vehicle first problem I start getting was the 4WD service light and won't be able to switch to 4WD, and was. Close to get in the wreck couple time during the winter storm. Second problem was when I was driving around 70mph on hwy truck got reduced engine power and slowed down my speed a lot, luckily I didn't have vehicle to close to me. Another problem I had was transmission issues, I was driving 25mph and my vehicle got blocked instant and won't move forward. Imagine if this happened on hwy driving 70mph and vehicle to stop/block the wheels and someone to be behind could be a big wreck. And after that issues truck won't go forward anymore, just on reverse

Seemed as if the car would almost slip in and out gear when diving approx. 30-40 mph. I then noticed the check engine light came on and flashed engine reduction and seemed to lose some power. I took it in to the dealer, 2 days later they replaced R&R camshaft position actuator magnet intake.the next day after the truck back. I started the truck it put it in reverse and the engine stopped running but it seemed as if it the engine was still running as when you use the remote to start the truck, after the 4th try the truck stayed running but the engine reduction warning had lit up again. The truck has been back at the dealers for 6 days trying to figure out the problem

Driving when a note came on the dash. ¿low oil pressure warning turn off engine immediately¿. I did, and checked the oil. It is empty. There is only 30,000 km on this truck. Not impressed. Had to replace the rear brake pads that were worn out at only 25,000 km. Had a bad vibration when driving. It was a transmission mount issue.

On 12/26/2019 at 05:40 am, I got in my truck (2019 Silverado lt Allstar) and started the engine. I immediately received multiple warning messages on my dash panel. They were "service ESC", "brake system failure" "steering assist reduced" and to drive no faster than 62 mph.  prior to parking the night before on 12/25/2019 I had never had any problems whatsoever. On 12/26/2019 I was heading to work but found quickly that the brake pedel went all the way to the floor with very limited or basically no braking. The steering became very difficult with no apparent power assist.

Silverado 1500

  • 13,000 miles
At about 45 mph on a city street, I tried to apply the brakes but the pedal fell completely to the floor and about 98% of the braking ability was gone. I was able to ride the truck up onto the shoulder to slow down and stop. After restarting the vehicle, it seemed that the brakes were working again so I tried to make it to the dealership (about 1.5 miles away). Accelerating back up to speed was very jumpy - almost as if the engine was being starved. After getting up to about 35 mph, the brakes engaged intermittently without me touching the brake pedal. I pulled back over and had the vehicle towed to the rest of the way to the dealership. While stopped and engine idling, I observed a very noticeable knock coming from the engine. The dealership diagnosed the problem and is replacing the master brake cylinder and lifters in the engine. This failure was extremely dangerous and I was lucky that it did not cause an accident.

On 6/26/2019 while driving to work on hwy 287 while in motion my truck engine turned off on my 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Texas edition 2.7 L color silver and I was almost rear ended and I immediately called smicklas Chevrolet in Oklahoma city where I purchased the truck and brought the truck to vandergriff Chevrolet in arlington, tx to be looked at and serviced. This is the second truck that I purchased that has done this to me the first one was a white truck 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Texas edition 2.7 L that I didn't have for 24 hours. The dealership diagnosed it as a cam shaft sensor problem that was a manufacturer defect and I'm really dissatisfied with Chevrolet as a company to keep selling a defective product. Knowing it can cause death or a accident
