ENGINE

3/22/2014 - LEBANON, VA
70,000 MILES LOW OIL LIGHT COMES ON, JUST HAD MY OIL CHANGED 1000 MILE BEFORE. TOOK IN TO GM DEALER THEY TOLD ME OIL PAN GASKET WAS BAD. REPAIRED. 1000 MILES LATER LOW OIL LIGHT CAME ON, TOOK BACK TO DEALERSHIP. NO ISSUE FOUND. TRUCK JUST BURNING OIL! THE TRUCK KEEPS USING 2 TO 3 QUARTS OF OIL DEALER WILL NOT DO ANYTHING. CALL GM THEY ADVISE TO GO TO DEALERSHIP AND DO OIL CONSUMPTION TEST. DID THIS TAKING IT BACK TO DEALERSHIP EVERY 500 MILES TO HAVE OIL CHECKED. USED 2-1/2 QUARTS OF OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. TOLD DEALER THIS WAS NOT NORMAL TO FIX MY TRUCK. DEALER ADVISED GM WOULD NOT FIX MY TRUCK BECAUSE THIS IS NORMAL USAGE. IT IS NOW USING ABOUT 3 QUARTS BETWEEN OIL CHANGES. GM TOLD ME TO GO BACK TO DEALER TO HAVE ANOTHER OIL CONSUMPTION TEST DONE. WE SEE THEY HIDE PROBLEMS WELL, AS WAS THE LAST RECALL. HOW ABOUT GETTING THEM TO ADDRESS OR FIX THIS ISSUE. THEY ARE STILL ADVERTISING THE AFM ENGINE , AND RAISING THE NORMAL OIL USAGE FROM A QUART TO 2 QUARTS. AS ANYONE CAN SEE WITH THE LATEST RECALLS THEY WILL HIDE OR NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THE PROBLEM. THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR BOTTOM LINE. NOT THE CUSTOMER. SEE HOW MANY CHANGES AND SERVICE BULLETINS HAVE BEEN ISSUED DUE TO THIS OIL CONSUMPTION ISSUE. MY GM CASE # 71-1118075589. THEY TEND TO CLOSE THESE CASE NUMBERS QUICK. AND THEN THEY ASSIGN YOU ANOTHER CASE NUMBER EACH TIME YOU CALL CUSTOMER SERVICE TO HIDE THE FACT THEY HAVE PROBLEMS. WHEN DEALER DOES OIL CONSUMPTION I FIND THEY DO NOT SHOW ANYTHING BACK TO GM OR ATTACH A RECORD TO YOUR VIN #. LAST COUPLE OF TIME I SPOKE TO GM CUSTOMER SERVICE, THEY HAD NO RECORD OF ME EVER HAVING AN OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM. AND MY LAST CASE NUMBER DID NOT SHOW UP IN THEIR SYSTEM. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO SEE THE PROBLEM IS "GOOGLE " GM 5.3 OIL CONSUMPTION PROBLEM. YOU WILL FIND MORE THAN A FEW COMPLAINTS.

SEATS

3/19/2014 - CLOVIS, CA
THIS IS THE E-MAIL I SENT TO GM REGARDING THE PROBLEM WITH THE BACK SEAT AND HOW I FEEL THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. THEY DID NOT RESPOND TO MY E-MAIL SO BY THE 8TH DAY I CALLED AND THEY SAID THEY CLOSED THE CASE BASED ON WHAT THE DEALER SAID, "CONDITION DOES NOT REPRESENT A SAFETY HAZARD." I STRONGLY DISAGREED AND PURSUED IT FURTHER GETTING THE SAME ANSWER. HERE IS THE E-MAIL: I HAVE A 2007 SIERRA GMC WITH A BACK SEAT THAT HAS MOVEMENT (PLAY) IN IT DUE TO WHAT GM CALLS A "RATTLE CLIP" BREAKING. I QUESTIONED THE DEALERSHIP WHEN TAKING THE VEHICLE IN FOR A DIFFERENT REPAIR AND WAS TOLD THAT IT WAS JUST A RATTLE CLIP. I HAVE CALLED GM REGARDING THE SAFETY ISSUE AND WAS GIVEN AN AUTHORIZATION FOR A COVERED DIAGNOSTIC ON THE TRUCK. AGAIN, THE DEALERSHIP SAID, "FOUND 2 SEAT BACK RATTLE CLIPS BROKEN. CONDITION DOES NOT REPRESENT A SAFETY HAZARD." I DECLINED THE REPAIR BASED ON THE FACT THERE IS NO KNOWN CAUSE FOR THE FAILURE OF THESE CLIPS EXCEPT FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THEY ARE CHEAP PLASTIC. I DO NOT FEEL REPLACING A PLASTIC CLIP WITH ANOTHER PLASTIC CLIP WILL FIX THE PROBLEM. IT WILL ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY FAIL AND THE SEAT HAS PLAY IN IT. I QUESTION IF THEY WOULD EVEN HOLD IN THE EVENT OF AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT. WHEN STRAPPING IN A CHILD'S CAR SEAT THERE IS TO BE NO MOVEMENT IN IT IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT FOR OBVIOUS SAFETY REASONS. I DO NOT SEE HOW A BACK SEAT THAT HAS A 1 1/2 INCH OR MORE OF PLAY IN IT IS NOT CONSIDERED A SAFETY ISSUE. I HAVE A VIDEO I WOULD LIKE TO E-MAIL YOU SO YOU CAN DETERMINE THIS FOR YOURSELF. I AM REQUESTING THEY ADDRESS THIS SAFETY ISSUE SO MY FAMILY AND ANY OTHER PASSENGERS CAN BE SAFE WHILE RIDING IN MY GMC. I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT ALTHOUGH THEY NAMED THIS PART A "RATTLE CLIP" IT SERVE MORE OF A PURPOSE THAN TO JUST STOP A RATTLE NOSE. IT SECURES THE BACK OF THE SEAT TO THE FRAME OF THE TRUCK SO THERE IS NO MOVEMENT.

STRUCTURE: BODY

3/10/2013 - PASADENA, MD
ONE OF THE ELECTRICALLY POWERED, FOLDING EXTERNAL MIRROR ASSEMBLIES BECAME INOPERABLE ON MY 2007 GMC SIERRA 1500 PICKUP TRUCK WHICH LED TO THE ENTIRE MIRROR ASSEMBLY BECOMING LOOSE. THE RESULT WAS THAT THE MIRROR ASSEMBLY WILL SLIGHTLY MOVE BACK AND FORTH WHILE DRIVING, CAUSING THE DRIVER TO ERRONEOUSLY SENSE MOVEMENT OF HIS VEHICLE OR ERRONEOUS MOVEMENT OF AN ADJACENT VEHICLE. THIS FALSE SENSING OF VEHICLE MOVEMENT IS VERY DISTRACTING, CAUSING A DRIVER TO LOSE FOCUS ON THE ROAD AND TO LOSE FOCUS ON THE OPERATION OF HIS VEHICLE. THE CONDITION IS DISTRACTING ENOUGH THAT IT MAY, IN SOME DRIVERS, INDUCE VERTIGO WHICH COULD LEAD TO CATASTROPHIC RESULTS. ## VIN FAILED ##
