Sad too. Because I really like the Colorado. But at 16,000 miles Iíve joined the POS 8-speed transmission vibrate club. At certain speeds, usually between 40-60, it feels like Iím driving over rumple strips. Itís not constant it comes and goes.

Recently spoke with another Colorado owner and he said the dealer did a fluid service and it mostly cured the problem for a while but the trans shake returned.

Iím not mad. Just disappointed. My 1st Chevy truck in 10 years. I was really pulling for GM. But this is inexcusable. Iím done.

Should have bought a GMC. Best on the planet.

And at 16k miles, arenít you overdue for a new vehicle anyway?

I bought a '19 Ram. The quietest, smoothest vehicle I've owned. Costs about the same as a Colorado, too. Way more room, etc, etc.

16k miles. It's way past time to trade it in.

My '15 LAM is one of the best vehicles I've ever had. Outside of recalls, no issues. I keep trying to talk myself into something new/different but stories like yours keep me with it. Besides, the recalls have to end sometime, right??!!??

That sucks! I'm on my 6th Chevrolet truck and can't say enough good about it. Haven't had an issue with any of them.

Seems simple enough. How does that help the transmission? My truck rarely goes into V4 mode.
