On October 24, 2015 while following my wife home on hwy 182 between west pasco and richland my truck experience what felt like a tire blowout on the right rear wheel. I was traveling the speed limit at 70 mph. The road was level and flat with no debris on the road. I proceeded to change out my tire with the spare, thinking that the tire had a large bolt or nail in it. To my surprise, the tire was intact with no sign of damage. The factory rim had failed. Here are the facts of the situation: ¿2015 Chevrolet Silverado lt z71 with 12,366 miles ¿smooth highway surface on a clear day traveling straight at 70 mph with no debris on the road ¿not hauling or towing ¿single occupant in vehicle ¿the tire is intact (not damaged at all) ¿no damage to the right front wheel or tire or any other part of the vehicle ¿severe damage to the right rear rim ¿rim impacted the brake system hard enough to bend parts and cause leaking of brake fluid.

My left front wheel hub assembly failed while driving. Brake system was compromised. I was able to pull over and stop safely, but brakes did not respond as they should. Moreover, there was no indication that the wheel bearing was failing, and I am quite aware of what this sounds like because this will be the fourth time I have replaced the wheel hub assembly on the left side. I have replaced the right hub assembly twice. In all previous times, I heard a slight whirling noise or at worse slight grinding, which would lead me to inspection and replacement before failure. This time it failed without any warning. I believe gm has made a serious design and/or quality error in this truck. This should be investigated because this is a common problem.

The contact owns a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado. While driving at approximately 65 mph, the vehicle shook violently without warning. The failure recurred numerous times. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the driveshaft failed and the tires needed to be replaced. In addition, the drive line needed to be aligned. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 600.

Autonation Toyota in arlington, TX failed to tighten one of my wheels after servicing it. I was traveling on the highway at 70mph when my wheel became totally disconnected from the rotor. The technician who was responsible for this told me that his was the 2nd time this has happened at this particular dealership. Autonation Toyota is putting their customers and other drivers at risk and in danger.

My front wheel bearings failed on both sides. I looked at the internet and found many 06/07 gm front wheel bearing failures, also many friends and neighbors had the same failures. To me this a serious safety problem as the wheel can come off.

Recently purchased Silverado 3500hd truck, I had no idea it did not have tire pressure monitoring system until I got home and was going through the vehicle driver information center. I thought all consumer vehicles has this safety feature. As it turns out everyone at the dealership was also surprised. Chevrolet has this listed as an option for a 3500hd, however they say it is not a supported configuration. I think the NHTSA needs to revise their tpms to all vehicles sold not just those below 10,000lbs. Tire pressure monitoring is a big safey issue for all vehicles, and can help avoid many mistakes. I appreciated it in my previous vehicle, I was alerted to a nail in leak and found a nail, I could have easily driven on the tire and had it fail while driving. Nearest I can tell, the components except for the sensors are in the truck as it is the same as the 2500hd, gm just refuses to make the required software changes to support adding tpms to my new truck. I've gotten every excuse under the sun until I got the its not a supported oonfiguration, note I was not told it was not possible. (though someone did, stating the tires were the issue, but the tires on this vehicle are the same as on the 2500hd).

Failure Date: 09/03/2012

Purchased the used vehicle originally at 42000 miles. Have taken impeccable care of it. Acual dates of incidents are unknown due to the fact most have been ongoing. Brakes failed due to abs. Fixed twice by gm under the safety recall. Both fixes were bandaids (dealer cleaned and applied a "special" grease twice, they never replaced the abs sensors. Third fix I paid out of pocket to replace the sensors, and since then the abs has been ok. Brakes failed due to rust and corrosion (all lines and 2 calipers had to be replaced. Fuel pump failed, fuel lines failed due to excessive corrosion, fuel tank straps failed due to excessive rust and corrosion. Slow leaks in 3 of 4 wheels due to excessive rust and corrosion in the rims.
