General Motors / 2010 chevy silverado 5.3 ltr aluminum head engine

1 Detroit , Mi 48226United States

In December of 2015 I had to go and trade in my 2008 Buick Enclave because it was having severe compression problems and transmission issues due to the fact it was a Saturn Motor not a Buick Motor installed in this vehicle. So I drive 42 miles to Harrison Arkansas from my home in Blue Eye Missouri and decide to buy this 2010 Chevy Silverado 1500 ls 4wd pickup (one owner) with only 20, 000 miles on it from Wood Motor Company in Harrison Arkansas. Great Truck till I arrive at about 80, 000 miles and one day I am driving down the road and the oil pressure gage goes to zero and I pull over immediately check the oil (it is full) I call my husband and I say hey my oil pressure just went to zero so I am like 2 miles from home I drive it on home he gets under and realizes after pulling the oil filter from it, it had collapsed. So of course we think wrong filter, faulty filter something had to have seriously happened to it. Till we start looking up this vehicle and realize it was not anything we did or the service area that had been doing the service it is a known flaw in this motor and there are several 100 registered complaints on this motor. So now I need new cams and lifters to band aid the problem or a whole new motor(not this one) to be installed in this truck. Well seeing that I do not have an extra $6, 500.00 in my pocket and even if I did why should I pay for something that was clearly a defect in the beginning of this Vehicles life span. I think GM should either pay for the installation of the new motor and the motor itself or buy it back from me and I will have to purchase something else. I mean the original price was $ 27, 500.00 that I have now paid down to $13, 000.00 and if I put another 6 or 7 grand back in it I am back at square one with still a defective vehicle and upside down to boot. Thank You for your time Alexis is pissed at Blue Eye Missouri
