    WELL IT LOOKS LIKE I GOT THE FRIDAY TRUCK FROM GM. I WILL BE THE FIRST TO TELL YOU I LIKE THE TRUCK BUT NOT THE PROBLEMS. HERE WE GO, WITH 8,000 MILES THE TR ANNY WAS LEAKING, WITH 18,000 MILES THE LEFT CV SHAFT WAS LEAKING FROM THE DIFFERENTIAL, WITH 20,000 MILES THEY HAD TO TAKE OUT THE HOLE FRONT DIFFERENTIAL ASSEMBLY AND RESEAL THE HOLE THING, AND AT THAT SAME TIME THE DRIVER SIDE SPEAKER NEED TO BE REPLACED. ( I ******* LISTEN TO SPORTS TALK RADIO FOR **** SAKES). SO I AM NOT TO THRILLED WITH GM RIGHT NOW.

    I NEW I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT A FORD!
    DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE PIECE OF **** BLIZZARD PLOW EITHER.:realmad:

    Get a new attitude not a new truck

    Wahh Wahh Wahh.. You sound a little like a baby. Work the bugs out and stop bad mouthing Chevy. We can just tell...If it was Ford you be complaining about something!Wahh Wahh Wahh

    I wasn't leaking when It left the lot so how can you blame them. They fixed it for you. And as for your speaker, talk radio listen to loud can be just as damaging to speakers as music.. GET SOME HEARING AIDS.

    OK.. aren't you glad you posted this! lol !

    Ouch. No sympathy here.


    At least it's under warranty. You may want toe have a straight talk with the local service rep and the area rep. Tell them you are concerened about the life of the truck and current problems. Then ask them to investigate the trans and front axel. Your either beating on it, it was put together poorly or somehow the alignment of mounting and shafts are causing undo stress. ( As for the speaker ...... Probably cheap material ). What version and year og gmc do you have.....

    I don't care if its Ford, Dodge, or Chev. In my mind they are all pieces of sh*t and none of them are made for work these days. Just my opinion.

    First of all i thought this was an open form. I was just telling you guys the problems I have had thats all. I know it has a warranty but its the hassle of bring the truck in every month or so. I should not have these problems with only 20,000 miles. I could see problems around 80,000 or 90,000 but 20,000 give me a break. Epic is right they don't make trucks like they use to, I had a 1999 3/4 ton that had 140,000 miles on it with out one leak thats why i stayed with Chevy.

    I love my 94' 2500 237k miles and not a problem!! (knock on wood). I doubt I will ever buy anything new, the old ones are just too damn reliable

    Your right it does suck when It happens that early. I also would be like WTF did I get a lemon? I sincerely hope your done with any issues. I was just teasing you because of you cap locks.
