2021 Chevrolet Silverado - Lemon Law

The 2021 Chevy Silverado is piling up owner complaints across multiple on-line forums and consumer complaint websites.  The most significant and consistent problem seems to be engine difficulties, particularly the lifters.

A lifter is a cylinder that sits between the truck's camshaft and the cylinder valves. As the camshaft moves over the top of the lifter, it activates, temporarily opening the valve. In simple terms, the lifter assists in lubricating your engine.

A malfunctioning lifter is a serious issue. It will cause the pushrod to bend and fall out of space. When that happens, it leads to a dead cylinder that might break valves or even damage the entire engine.

Symptoms of Bad Lifters

Some signs that your Chevy Silverado may have bad lifters include:

  1. Engine misfires. You may feel rough idling. Engines that idle inconsistently could be suffering from misfiring.
  2. Lazy Acceleration. Your truck may seem slow off the start and appear to have difficulty hitting correct speeds throughout the transmission shift range.
  3. Engine “ticking”. You may hear a ticking or tapping noise, often at start up, which may indicate the lifters have lost oil. Then the ticking may stop as the vehicle warms and the lifters get filled back up. (Or the ticking my continue when warm, which is even worse).
  4. “Check Engine” light. Your warning light may go on for a variety of reasons. Bad lifters my be the cause.

Other Problems          

The 2021 Chevy Silverado is also experiencing multiple complaints for the following defects:

  1. Transmission defects including shudder and lurching
  2. Navigation system and electrical defects
  3. Suspension and driveability defects
  4. Air conditioning, (A/C)
  5. Engine light on
