#22 of 59 speedometer, Avalanche problems (chiller)
Jun 14, 2009 (12:56 pm)
We have a 2003 Avalanche w/speedo problems. Could not find any recalls. Got my info from a Goodyear dealer. Had truck dash replaced by Munday chevy Conroe, Tx. Found lawsuit on Web. Speedometer settlement approved after two appeals and as of March 10, 2009 case now final and you can proceed to seek your cost only (no labor refund) .Letter from Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center dated 4-14-2009, PH # 1-800-222-1020, apologizes for any inconveniences and our commitment to customers is a top priority.
We went through all that and received a check for $322.51. Deposited check in Bank Of America. Bank letter states : (confidential information indicates that the deposited check may not be paid. ) So if you do get the reimbursement check it may be no good.Check came from North American Operations, General Motors Corp, PO Box 62530, Phoenix, Az., 85082-2530. Check dated 4-15-2009. Now what? All of this is find and dandy, a worthless check. What to do next?

Many of you have contacted me via e-mail as listed earlier in the thread for a copy of the class action lawsuit pertaining to the speedometer problem. Can anyone post the file to this discussion board or have a web site to host a link for easy access so others are being shafted by the dealers claiming to have no knowledge of the special notice? Those having found success, pass the word!

Thanks for your post..it was beneficial. If you don't mind telling what was the cost of the work you did? I am not sure if it is an instrument issue or a computer issue with my vehicle.

Could you also send me the Special Recall for the Avalanche instrument cluster, and the class action law suit filed for correction. My email address is famwash65yahoo.com.
Thanks in Advance.

I'm happy to provide a copy but you'll need to either post your e-mail address or send me a private e-mail to seafarmerhotmail.com. I suggest a subject line pertaining to Avalanche recall or the like so I don't delete it as junk mail. For other future visitors, please make note. I'd also like to have you all post your results back here so others can benefit from it or take an alternate action to get GM to correct this issue.
