“At first I thought that I was going over a series bumpy roads, but I soon discovered that it was my car that was the problem. It was vibrating so bad it was making me feel dizzy”
Does this sound like you? If you own a 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and are experiencing excessive vibration while driving or the car shakes at idle, you may have a serious issue on your hand. Auto dealers develop sophisticated selling techniques that draw us in their dealership and have us riding away with the car of our dreams. Only it turns out that some dreams don’t come true.
If you are one of the thousands of people that have reported a problem with your 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and are getting no support from your dealership, California Lemon Law is here to help.
The issues with vibration are the most common fault reported with this model of Chevrolet. This is a known issue from the company, with repair guidelines in place for vibration and/or rough handle (bulletin #18-NA-106). Reports from customers affected by this issue say that the vibration occurs between any speed ranging from 30 mph to 70 mph but is most prominent between 50 mph and 65 mph. Shaking is also prominent during slight deceleration and acceleration. This fault has also been reported in 2017 and 2018 models.
There is also evidence of the center screen blacking out (TAC case #8-4589430011). The case stated required the radio control assembly to be replaced but this has not proven to be a fix for all vibration and shaking problems with this car. An additional fault that has been brought to attention by drivers is as a rough idle on cold start.
Bad shake while driving is a worry and you should not have to drive a car that is substandard and not at all what you paid for.
Many dealerships will deny any culpability with the issues stated above and will send you away with the view that you can drive so there is no real issue. You should not take their word for it.
