Those who drive a 2018, 2019, or 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 PU/RC, PU/CC or PU/EC should be aware of numerous consumer complaints regarding a wide array of powertrain issues. From transmissions that experience severe vibrations to gear shifts that fail to engage properly, many Chevrolet customers are expressing concern over the safety of these trucks. Although Chevrolet has issued seven safety recalls that impact this model, several people are still experiencing significant problems with their vehicles, even after receiving the recall repairs.
According to one consumer, their 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 PU/CC experienced transmission slippage soon after it was started. After depressing the accelerator pedal, the driver found that the transmission failed to respond. Chevrolet mechanics were unable to diagnose the issue, even though the vehicle had only 300 miles on it. Another driver shared a stressful incident in which he was driving his 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 PU/RC up a hill, when the transmission failed to locate the proper gear and the truck lost momentum. The vehicle quickly began to roll backwards down the hill, prompting the driver to slam on the brakes to avoid a collision. So far, the dealership has failed to identify the underlying problem, and the driver reported that the issue has occurred several times since the initial incident.
