Let's get started.
I too own a 99 Chevy Silverado Z71 that has more problems than I'll probably be able to think of during this paragraph.
To start it off, I will be with the rear end. I have put three of them in it, and they keep going out. I have had one professionally rebuilt, and it didn't last no time, and this morning another one has failed me. They pop and everything when you turn, slowdown or stop. When I put it in reverse, the locker will stay engaged and not allow me to turn.
Next is the ABS light. Stays on along with the service engine light, and brakes go in and out. Replaced just about all rotors multiple times, and right front wheel has come completely off the truck, taking out everything but the arms. WITH A NEW SET OF BEARINGS AND AXLES.
O2 sensors are a huge problem along with the cats.
Next is the knock sensor, and the truck is very very hard to start and smells bad of gas when started finally.
Things in the truck just seem to be falling down or off all the time etc.
Recently blew a brake line, and now the ABS light is back AGAIN.
Always having to change bearings in this thing, and I don't ever drive it off road hardly. Just gravel driveway.
It is my daily driver that is about to have the plug pulled on it. I hate to hear that so many other people are having these same problems, but why doesn't GM do something about it? I'm to the point of buying a FORD or something else.
It drives good and everything, and looks good, but just keeps having the same ole problems, and I can't afford them any more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
