Complaint - Electrical System

(2004 SILVERADO EXTENDED CAB LS 5.3L WITH 54K MILES) I WAS DRIVING TO WORK THIS MORNING (CRUISING ABOUT 70MI) BUT I NOTICED THAT WHEN I SLOWED DOWN IN TRAFFIC, THE SPEEDOMETER WAS STUCK AT 70MI. ONCE I GOT OFF THE FREEWAY, I PULLED INTO THE GAS STATION TO FILL-UP, AND NOTICED THAT THE NEEDLE ON THE SPEEDOMETER WAS STILL STUCK @ 70MI. AS I DROVE AWAY, I NOTICED THAT NOW, THE NEW 70MI. MARK WAS 0MI, AND AS I DROVE DOWN THE STREET, THE CAR WAS READING 100MI. IT CONTINUED TO MOVE BACK TO 70 AS I CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP. I UNDERSTAND THERE IS A CLASS-ACTION LAW SUIT FOR THIS ISSUE. I WILL NOT PAY TO REPAIR THIS PROBLEM AS I FEEL IT'S GM'S PROBLEM TO RESOLVE. MY NEXT VEHICLE WILL BE A TOYOTA...AND THEY WONDER WHY IMPORTS ARE FLOODING THE MARKET...GM NEEDS TO STEP UP AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS STUFF! I FEAR THAT WHEN I TAKE IT IN TO THE DEALER SHIP, THEY ARE GOING TO CHARGE ME AN ARM AND A LEG, DESPITE THAT FACT THAT I PURCHASED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY PACKAGE FROM THEM AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE (TRUCK). NOW THAT THIS ISSUE IS THERE, I CAN'T REALLY DRIVE MY TRUCK UNTIL IT'S REPAIRED SINCE I DON'T WANT TO HAVE AN ACCIDENT OR GET A TICKET.
