The Chevy Silverado 1500 and transmission issues appear to be related. This is made even more troubling by the fact that out of all pickup trucks, Consumer Reports awarded the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 the lowest possible expected dependability rating. Let’s examine the Chevy gearbox issues that Silverado users are starting to experience often.
Does the Chevy Silverado 1500 have transmission problems?
When it comes to expected reliability, the 2022 Chevy Silverado 1500 full-size pickup truck only receives a score of one out of five according to the Consumer Reports statistics. Consumer Reports survey data, which it gathers from thousands of drivers, is the basis for this rating.
How is this information used? Owners of Silverados discussed their satisfaction with their vehicles and any potential issues with their vehicles. After that, fair scores are generated using a 100-point scale and 17 probable problem areas. For the Silverado 1500 model years 2014 to 2019, severe and minor Chevy transmission faults are among the most problematic regions.
2017 Silverado transmission problems
90 transmission issues with the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 have been documented on Car Complaints. Surges and jerks were the transmission’s two most frequent problems.
One motorist didn’t have any problems with his Silverado until a few weeks after purchasing it. When the transmission surges began, the driver visited a dealership where he was informed that the truck needed to adapt to his driving style. They advised bringing it back so they could fix the torque converter if the issue persisted in a few weeks. The driver followed the instructions but was then informed that switching to 2WD should resolve the issue and that the automatic 4WD was to blame.
Another motorist changed their transmission after only around 66,000 miles on their vehicle. The replacement cost roughly $3,000 and wasn’t covered by the warranty. Their transmission only lasted for two years and four months, which disappointed them.
Hard shifts, clunking in low ratios, reluctance while accelerating, metallic bang noises, and the StabiliTrak light appearing on the highway, which causes the vehicle to slow down, are some more transmission issues with the 2017 Silverado that have been documented.
