Truck Dilema

Last september I purchased a new, 2012 chevrolet silverado, duramax diesel. The truck has had problems with a fuel sensor multiple times (same thing 4-5 times) all repaired and replace under warranty.

Fast forward to today and my question. I am considering trading the vehicle so as to avoid future problems when the warranty runs out.

My options as per the dealer are: A) 2013 Duramax for $9800 out of pocket B) A 2014 silverado (the newest one) 1/2 gas burner for 6000-7000 out of pocket or C) A 2013 gas burner for an even swap.
(ALL ABOVE ARE NEW)

What would the money boad do?

You already sunk enough money into a bad investment.

Don't make it worse by adding thousands more.

Gotta know the specs of all the trucks to make a decision. Drivetrain? Package? Options.

What all did you have in your current truck?

I would not go back with a Chevy if I've had that kind of problem out of a 2012. You that loyal?

I'd hold on to it till the warranty is about to run out and then trade it in. Why would you even consider going back to same truck if you've had all these problems?

re: Truck Dilema
I may be wrong, but it sounds like you easily qualify to return the truck under the lemon law. I would at least look in to that option.

This, you have to really push the issue bc they will stall and delay and give excuses, girl I work with was recently successful with a lemon law return on a dodge

That thing has a 100,000 mile warranty. You will have it traded in long before then.

You failed to mention you were a farmer.

If you're a farmer, roll the one you currently have over the levee and go down there and pay cash for your next one the next day.

Oh yeah I'm a farmer, naturally these trucks are LTZ packages.

I was thinking the lemon law might apply here thanks for the help guys

Did they fix it this time or not? Sounds like you need to find a new dealer to repair your rig.

I'd hang on to it unless it's still not repaired.

In La looks like you may be in luck under the Lemon Law.

You said:

The summary indicates:
quote:

REASONABLE NUMBER OF REPAIR ATTEMPTS

The manufacturer must repurchase or replace a motor vehicle (other than a motor home) if either of the following occurs:

1. The nonconformity is not repaired after four or more attempts within the warranty term or within one year of the vehicle’s original delivery to the consumer, whichever is earlier, or

2. The vehicle is out of service by reason of repair for cumulative total of 90 or more calendar days during the warranty period.


Full law can be found:

frick that dealership. Print that out and ask to speak to the manager or you'll be retaining legal representation, which they'll end up paying for, too.

re: Truck Dilema
My rec is to not buy a Government Motors vehicle.

Eta: seeing now that you're a farmer you might consider the dodge diesel. Always heard good things.
Fwiw, I will never touch a dodge. Just heard that the cummins is awesome.

re: Truck Dilema
Have you approached the dealer about the lemon law issue? It ain't like you're some stranger off the street.
