    DON'T BUY GMC - 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Vibration Nightmare

    Original post removed for legal reasons - lawsuit filed against gm - never buy from a company that doesn't stand behind its product when legally obligated to.

    I have no vibration problems with my 2014 GMC Sierra SLT, as far as the headlights go, there is a TSB where they replace the bulbs and increase voltage through the ECM. Visibility is much improved.

    That's unfortunate, it's sad the more and more I read about these issues. There once was a time where I swore by GM trucks as being the best truck you can buy, but a lot can change in 10 years.

    I re-read your rant.

    So, you worked at GM, perceived that it was a crappy, mismanaged company and yet still bought one of their products? After three lemons at that!

    May I ask, why?

    $50K for an SLE isn't cheap.

    My 6.2L High Country with Navigation, Sunroof, Heated and Cooled Buckets, etc was only $57K sticker.

    Oh, and I worked at GM during this time period too, in the design areas, and like I said, it amazes me they are actually able to bring a product to market, economically and timely.
    I've owned four (4) GMC products in the last twenty (20) years, and three (3) of the four (4) have turned out to be legitimate lemons (traded, repurchased or swapped by GM).
    Did they fire you for incompetance?

I test drove 4 different SLT's when we were going through the motions of a potential trade at the local level.
    Rancho shocks are part of the Z71 suspension package. You can get that on an SLE as well. With that said, there are guys with Z71s complaining of vibration also. My 2WD SLT doesn't have Rancho shocks and rides fine. No vibrations at all. Same with my 4WD High Country Silverado. Some vibrate, most don't.

    I don't blame you. If GM sold me a lemon and then fought tooth and nail NOT to fix it, I'd leave too.

    Just because truck listed for 50k doesn't mean he paid that, with the non-stop deals on these trucks, nobody pays that price.
