I think the issue with the gauge cluster needs to be adressed, its not like the vehicle don't cost enough as it is, and to have to spend a bunch of money to repair common problems is rediculs

Do you drive a 2011 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 1500?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
