Can you send a copy of the GM letter to me too? I am the original owner of a 2005 Silverado with the same wacky speedometer problem. We reported the problem to our local Chevy dealer last fall and were told they would be happy to fix it for $$$. We also have a 2005 Tahoe (the speedometer is still working properly on this one). We have never received any letter about this issue for either vehicle

The speedometer on my 2003 Chevy Suburban Z71 says I'm going 120 m.p.h. when stopped. I brought it to the dealer and they said $600.00 to replace the cluster.I did not want to spend another 600.00 on a 50,000.00 truck after making several other costly repairs. Shortly after that I received a recall notice from GM but I was over the mileage. I think it is rediculous that they will not repair it when the problem is widespread, telling me that GM did not make the part correctly. I sent them a letter that Toyota will get my business next time. No more GM's!

That's curious. If they admit that the speedometer is faulty then why would they expect the odometer to be sufficiently reliable to cut you off from coverage with the recall?

Where do I go to look into the law action with chevy.I have a 2005 Silverado and at 63,000 my speedometer developed a mind of it's own.I can be going 25mph and it says 125mph.The next time I look it says 0mph and then goes to 50mph and sticks. I have contacted Gm customer service.they told me that they could not talk to me until I paid to have the problem diagnosed by a dealership.Also if a problem was found that I would be billed for the repairs.Is there some where else I can go for help.

I have the same problem with a 2003 Tahoe with 95,000 miles. Chevrolet says that they will not cover it since I am over 70,000 miles. They offered 2 free oil changes as a alternative. I told them I would stop buying Chevrolet (my last 4 new cars were Chevrolet) but they didn't seem to care. Can you provide me with more information on the extended warranty to 130,000 miles?

I called GM customer service and talked to a local GM service rep here in Louisiana and they both told me that as I had over 70,000 miles there was nothing they could do to help. I phoned the firm of Tousley Brain Stevens in Seattle, their number is 1-877-747-9016 toll free. They told me the suite was in the pliminary stage of settlement and that the settlement includes coverage for the part but not the labor or diagnosis between 70,000 miles and 80,000 miles. They said there should be a letter stating this coming out soon. Hope this info helps all with simular problems.
#94 of 412 2003 speedometer failure
Aug 13, 2008 (8:08 pm)
Mine failed at 95,000 miles. Auburn Chevrolet (WA) said to bring it in for free repair. Then they said it was not covered due to mileage (more than 70,000 miles). I had told them the mileage over the phone. I called the national customer care number. They offered 2 free oil changes but no repair. They denied knowing about any extension of free repair to 130,000 miles. I told them I would never buy another Chevrolet (this had been my fourth since 1994, 2 suburbans, the tahoe and 1 S10). I guess repeat business is not their goal. I can have the speedometer repaired for $180. It is easy to remove and I will do so before buying a Toyota. GM can go bankrupt before I would ever consider buying another car or truck from them. I had other repeat problems with my Tahoe and suburbans, 2 fuel pumps failed between 50,000 and 60,000 miles, and 3 taillights failed before 70,000 miles ( I never had a taillight fixture fail before). Chevy sucks and their corporate management sucks more. Good luick with your going out of business sale!!
#95 of 412 Weird Gas Gauge Problem
Aug 18, 2008 (12:41 pm)
As for the Speedometer, I was lucky as mine failed before 36,000 miles and within the first year. My sympathy to you all that had to pay for this Bull^$%# problem.
I have a weird problem as my gas gauge (I'll top off my tank) and it will read 1/8 just under Full. It only does this now and then and I still have some of the extended warranty left, but is this an issue many of you have had too?
It seems like I get one thing fixed and something else fails a year later, piss poor for a $40,000 + plus vehicle..
#96 of 412 SPEEDOMETER AND GAUGE FAILURE - BRAVADA
Aug 18, 2008 (6:03 pm)
I am experincing the same condition with my instrument cluster that most of you are including my other gauges on my 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada which I bought new. It has the same instrument cluster as most of you have. Does anyone have any printed information from General Motors for this condition as I understand General Motors is going be be responsible for the this widespread failure due to a class action law suit. Like most of you, I have received extreme dissatisfaction in response to my inquiries.
Thanks for any information that anyone can provide.

How many miles do you have on your vehicle? The information states within 70,000 miles for the speedometer assembly. It went to all owners as long as they had your current address..
