What Owners Say
“I traded the truck in after 30 days on a Toyota Tundra. Chevrolet wasn't supporting their dealers and didn't have an answer as to why 10% of the transmissions (8 speeds) are so problematic. I lost $5000 on the trade but kept my sanity”Dennis K., MN (2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country 5.3-L V8)
“Trnasmission shifts hard and not smoothly, clunks, clanks and surges”Anonymous, VA (2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country 5.3-L V8)
“Same. Problem is with all”Freeman B., SC (2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 5.3-L V8)
“Acceleration has a 'dead spot'. It is difficult to maintain a constant speed because the truck 'can't seem to decide' which gear to be in”John A., CA (2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 5.3-L V8)
“6 speed transmission. Skips and hesitates while driving. GM states that it's operating normally for fuel efficiency. A 6.2 engine with 8 speed trans does not”Freeman B., SC (2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 5.3-L V8)
