2018 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 with so many problems

JUNK!!! Makes me not want another Chevrolet!! 2018 Z71 Chevy Silverado 1500, loaded!! Never pulled anything but Service Trailer brake system, open and close driver side window comes up ABS, etc screen goes out, all goes dim lose power steering, then dies and power back up most of time, died on 95 in slow traffic!!! Dangerous!!!! Nvr no when it will happen!!! Latest was stabilizer, banging noise, at dealership $2800.00 later, total BS and this is to do with Stabilizer nothing to do with throwing codes loosing power and steering etc!!!!


Hope GM does a recall

The truck has been very reliable up to now and rides great and toes well however I am worried about the lifter problem with the motors that are in these as well as the torque converter in driveshaft all appear to be very common problems which GM has not decided to make a recall on yet


Don’t get one

I have a 2018 Silverado LT Z71 4x4 off-road. It has 67k miles and the transmission went out for no reason. No abuse and no towing. The AC also went out at 50k miles. Thank god I bought the extended warranty for $3400 which covered the $5400 transmission job. The interior rattles, cheap plastic, driver door speaker rattles. Rides super rough. Doesn’t know what gear to stay in. The V4 fuel mode sucks and destroys the lifters and doesn’t save any mpg. The ride of the truck is super rough especially when hitting pot holes. I think the only thing good about the truck is the looks.


Junk vehicle, do not buy one

Had a 2000 GMC sierra with the 5.3l and LOVED it. It was involved in a wreck and totaled. Needing another truck in a hurry I bought this 2018 silverado LT with the 5.3l engine. It is the biggest piece of junk I've ever owned. The ride it crazy bouncy, wipers freeze to the windshield and any temp below freezing no matter how long you have the defroster on. Door seals squeak like crazy. I can not wait to find me another older GMC like I had and get rid of this xxxxx Silverado. My 2000 GMC even got better gas mileage. Both with 5.3l engines, auto trans. Extended cabs. If your thinking of buying a 2018 Silverado, DONT DO IT. I'll take a huge $$ loss when I sell mine but it will be worth it. My 2000 GMC at 22 years old. Rode better, zero squeaks, shifted better, 100% more comfortable to ride in. I bought my 2018 in 2021 used. Like new.


Lemon is the word for this transmission. What is g

Transmission down shifts hard. A clunking sound. Shifts normal going slow . Shifts normal going up through the gears. Feels funny up shifting in first three gears.


GM sucks

AFM sucks. I will not buy anymore GM vehicles. Why would you put 3.08 gears in a truck? Why won’t GM replace my cam and lifters and remove AFM?


Best looking Chevy Silverado ever!

Great looking and driving Chevrolet Silverado. Very roomy and equipped well. The paint quality and panels are very nice. The 4 wheel drive and towing package is very easy to operate.


good truck love it

good running line the body style just dont want the radio and heater to mess up like it has been they preformed programming hope it works hade codes


I want to drive all day

I am in love with this truck. I purchased this vehicle and its almost like brand new. It rides like a cadillac and is so comfortable to drive, i wish it took me longer to get to work.


Nickel and Dimed to submission.

I've owned my Z71 LT2 2018 Silverado since it had 23 miles on it. Every 2-6 weeks one of the TMPS sensors breaks, in the last 60 days all 4 have gone kaput, the overhead center console has fallen, the gas filler neck broke, the A pillers have warped and look terrible. In the last year I've beaten advanced aggressive lymphoma. But GM has beaten me into submission with a cheaply made pickup.
