Instrument Panel problem #6
The car was a 2003 GMC Sierra. The VIN of this vehicle was 1GTEK19TX3_. The transmission clunks when shifting from 2nd - 3 rd and at times the engine will rev and finally it will take off, this has caused an issue when going through an intersection. The dealership attempted four repairs and it is not fixed. The issue started when the vehicle had 6k miles on it and it is getting worse. The speedometer is sporadic in that it will show speed reduction/increase in segments - as if it were sticking. The erroneous speed indication causes an issue when going too slow or too fast in traffic. It was 02/19/06 when this instrument panel issue occurred.

Instrument Panel problem #13
Instrument cluster inoperative. 2003 GMC Sierra pick up. Received a letter from gm and due to the mileage they will not repair the cluster even though the vehicle is within the date range. The mileage listed is not reasonable since they only allow 10k per year. They were called when I received the letter at 104k and now at 111k they can only apologize for the problem but not fix it under warranty. I feel it is a safety issue but they do not. So I am having it fixed for almost 600 dollars with no help from gm. This should be a recall since they knew of the problem and it has occurred enough to warrant sending out letters notifying the owners of a potential problem. It was Aug. 10, 2007 when this instrument panel issue happened.
