Chevrolet vehicles may be prone to the "Chevy Shake" at high speeds.Drivers have launched a class action lawsuit against General Motors, claiming that the powertrains in some Chevrolet, Cadillac, and GMC vehicles are defective, causing an unpleasant driving experience known casually as the “Chevy shake.”

The Chevy shake class action lawsuit was filed by Kim Bostick and Branden Jamison who say that they purchased vehicles affected by the defect.

According to Bostick and Jamison, General Motors leased and sold hundreds of thousands of vehicles that are equipped with defective drivelines or powertrains — the part of the vehicle responsible for turning the vehicle’s wheels. Allegedly, this problem causes the vehicles to shake violently when driven at high speeds. 

Bostick and Jamison go on to describe the “Chevy shake” defect in more detail, claiming that the problem is caused by a defective drive shaft that is part of the driveline.

According to the plaintiffs, the drive shaft is an aluminum tube running the length of the interior of the vehicle, “transmitting torque and rotation from the engine to the wheels.” The drivers say that when the output shaft of the transmission rotates, it spins the drive shaft, turning the differential ring gear to rotate the wheels.

To work correctly, the drive shaft must reportedly be designed to particular balanced and weighted standards, so it can perform at high speeds. However, the design of the GM drive shafts in question allegedly are not appropriately designed.

The GM driveline shake class action lawsuit says that because of their defect, the vehicles are unstable at highway speeds and can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles.

Allegedly, the problem can worsen over time if it is not fixed. The drivers say that the defect in the design can cause the drive shaft to deteriorate, which can cause the powertrain to completely fail by the drive shaft dropping to the ground. The drivers say this occurrence makes the vehicles unusable.

The vehicles that reportedly possess the Chevy shake defect include the following:

  • 2015 to 2020 Cadillac Escalade
  • 2014 to 2019 Chevrolet Silverado
  • 2015 to 2020 Chevrolet Suburban
  • 2015 to 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • 2014 to 2019 GMC Sierra
  • 2015 to 2020 GMC Yukon or Yukon XL

GM allegedly knew or should have known about the defect in the driveline because of testing that the company should have conducted on the vehicle before it was released onto the market.

Additionally, GM knew or should have known about the problem at least after the vehicles were released onto the market because numerous complaints were made about the problem and communicated to GM, say the drivers.

The GM driveshaft class action lawsuit claims that GM actively concealed this information from consumers. The drivers state that GM put its own profits ahead of the safety and financial interest of customers. 

The plaintiffs say that had they known their vehicles were defective, they would not have purchased them or would not have paid as much as they did for them.

In April, GM drivers filed a separate, similar Chevy shake class action lawsuit.

    I have been dealing with this issue for 3 years. I have been through balancing, alignments, different tires and replacing driveshaft. Still an existing problem. I sure GM would own up to the problem. I need some help.

    • Kevan December 15, 2020

      Shaking for 3 years no help and other parts going now no help. Last Gm I’m going to buy

  • Don Johnson November 1, 2020

    I have a lot of issues with my 2015 Suburban LTZ beautiful SUV, but the issues keep piling up and don’t seem to stop. I had problems with misfiring on cylinder 1 and took many tries from the dealership and finally got to the bottom of the problem bad fuel injector on cylinder 1. But now I am having issues with once my vehicle hit 70 mph the violent shake. I notice with GM they want own up to anything.

  • Jacob Vogan October 22, 2020

    Please add me. I purchased a brand new 2018 GMC Sierra and it had the chevy shake as well as a clunking shift in the transmission right when I was driving it home from the dealership. After reading all the forums I realized this was a long-term problem that the dealerships were not able to fix. I traded the truck in with only 4,500 miles on it and lost $8,800. Still paying on that money.

  • Don Harrison October 7, 2020

    I purchased a 2018 GMC Sierra Denali (pre-owned) with 43,000 miles on it. 3000 miles later it has started the ‘shake’. I have had the tires rotated & balanced to no avail. I have an upcoming appointment (OCT 26) to have it looked at, not sure what kind of remedy’s I should expect to be offered and if I should be expected to pay for them.

  • james charles young September 18, 2020

    I purchased a 2018 chevy 2500 duramx z71 and the shake in the truck at 75 mph will make your body go numb. Dealer continues to place blame on me and the shop I decided to use after they couldn’t fix the problem. This truck is starting to fall apart due to the shaking. I need help.

  • Joseph StPierre September 17, 2020

    I purchased my 2014 silverado and also have the shake and my a/c system needs over 2500.00 in work and to top it off my lifter just got stuck and caused damage to the cam and this bill is going to be in the thousands. My Silverado was always dealer serviced and has only 12300 miles on it. Last of the GM trucks I buy. My last truck Was a GMC Sierra with over 250,000 miles on it and still ran beautiful when I thought this one would be an upgrade. Been nothing but problems . Not to mention the boat load or recalls. Very disappointed and I have a long history with Chevy truck purchases . Worst truck yet !!!

  • Andrea September 2, 2020

    This happens with my 2014 chevy camaro over 75mph plus

  • James Beaver September 1, 2020

    I recently purchased a 2015 SLT yukon, very nice suv, love it but didnt reach high speeds when test driving. Noticed at 70-85 the vehicle gets a bad vibration, very irritating. All wheels have been balanced and tires checked as well as a front-end alignment.. still vibrates. I have built many street rods and have owned many vehicles and i know this is not right. Reading all the forums and chat lines, the only two that said it fixed their vehicles were a transmission fluid change due to wrong type from factory and a steel driveshaft replacement. There are many comments for the driveshaft and most said it did not fix the issue so i am reluctant to spend the money for one at this time. Has anyone else heard if the tranny fluid trick works ? Or what is the process to be part of the lawsuit to get this SUV back to smooth sailing again….

    • Michael Shackelford September 8, 2020

      @James Beaver, the tranny fluid flush and re-fill with Mobil 1 synthetic transmission fluid, and/or replace the torque converter (or maybe the driveshaft) issue is different from the “Chevy Shake” that occurs at higher speeds. The tranny fluid or driveshaft issue is for late model GM trucks mostly that experience a hard shift or thud when upshifting from 1st to 2nd gear or from 2nd to 3rd gear. This also often happens on downshifts from 3rd down to 2nd and from 2nd to 1st gear. These issues happen at lower speeds appropriate for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd gear, not at higher highway speeds like the Chevy Shake issue. It is also mostly limited to the 8-speed automatic transmissions while those with 6-speed or 10-speed transmissions rarely experience these issues. I’m sure it is possible to have both issues, but probably too likely. If you really have these problems you will know it and the dealer will most likely deny it. Go along with the technician so you can show them the issue or they will ignore it in my experience. I have the hard shift issue and they will only say that it falls within the expected tolerance and there is nothing they can do for me. The transmission flush and fill procedures are expensive but much cheaper than a new torque converter or possibly worse if the problem is not addressed.

  • Ronnie Wisener August 20, 2020

    Picked up my new 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab 4×4 LTZ on December 30, 2019 and it is now August 20th, 2020 with 46,000 miles on it and I experienced a huge vibration in the front end of the truck on August 17, 2020 on my way to work. Hoping that maybe I threw a wheel weight and that was why it was shaking, but NO. I got the call from the dealership yesterday and they informed me that I have a shutter shake as they called it. They will be flushing the transmission and giving it back to me to drive and if the problem comes back I will have to bring it back and then they will more than likely have to replace the transmission or torque converter. Sad that you pay this much for a vehicle and have only 46k miles and experience something like this and even more so Chevrolet knowing of the issue and giving people such a hard time to resolve the problem.

  • Nicholas Skurski August 15, 2020

    What do I do!? I have this exact problem. I have a 2015 Chevy Silverado and it shakes at 70+mph. I have taken it to many shops and dealerships. I have replaced the breaks twice and purchased all new tires as well as having the vehicle balanced To many times to count. HELP

  • Terry Peterman July 26, 2020

    Just bought a used 2015 High Country. Vibrations in the steering wheel around 65 mph. Thought it was road ripples due to 90 degree temperatures. Now I realize it has the “Chevy Shake.” Not unbearable, but annoying.
    Otherwise, I like the truck.

  • Jerad June 30, 2020

    Wow, I i have had this exact issue amongst others since I purchased the 2014 Chevrolet LTZ 4×4 6.2 liter.Since I travel for work I’ve tried getting this issue resolved from different Chevrolet dealerships at several different ones all around lousiana throughout my travels.only for them to keep the vehicle for nearly a month each time and then say the computer doesn’t read a code and it be returned without any help. .please contact me immediately I’m sure each time it’s on record. I have several family members as witnesses etc.

  • Lowell D. June 30, 2020

    2014 gmc sierra, before I could get it looked at the transmission went out. Just recently had to pay out of pocket to have it replaced.

    • Nelson December 28, 2020

      Interesting, my 2016 silverado 1500 just hit 50k miles and I am noticing sort of an oscillating noise at highway speeds of 70mph in overdrive. Is this the infamous shake so many speak of? I am about to have all 4 duratrac tires rebalanced and rotated to isolate issue.

  • Robert June 28, 2020

    My 2018 Silverado has this shake and a slam as well. This needs to be resolved and the dealer should share some of the blame as well.

  • Ezekiel June 26, 2020

    Got a 2015 Silverado 1500 lt crew cab 2wd get the shake at 65-80 it has become so annoying and have put in new brakes,tires,rotors gone to align at different places still shaking and got people saying its in my head until they ride with me and some gm forums say it normal got me feeling like Im crazy. This has put a lot of mental frustration on me and my wallet to. Looking to change drive shaft but at this point been holding on that saving a bit and also I live with family that always on my business and they gonna question what is being done to the truck and when tell them just a embarrassment and be like im crazy or why I got this junk and It kinda hurts I really worked hard for it.

  • Keith Folger June 19, 2020

    Driveshaft blown at the 99 limit in a Silverado 1500 LD. Not warranteed due to too much torque. Sign me up too. I have the old driveshaft for evidence and the location the wrecker picked me up-3/4 of a mile down a 1 mile road. Yes I’m guilty of speeding. Yes the shaft should not have came apart at the factory designed limit.

  • Doug McAllister June 17, 2020

    I noticed my 2017 Silverado 1500 LT shake at highway speeds and took it back to the dealer within that month. They told me the tires were badly cupped. The tires were indeed cupped, so i replaced them out of pocket. (Not sure why they were so badly cupped when the truck only had 27k on it.) Second trip to the dealer they told me they reprogrammed the transmission and I should try and put 1,000k miles on it. My third trip to the dealer they said it my new tire was 1/2oz out of balance, and that it “drives like a truck”. I have a 1994 Silverado that drives smother than my 35k dollar 2017. SMH. I haven’t gotten to the point of arguing, but I’m getting there. Hopefully my track record of bringing it in for service will help my argument in the future. Currently my truck is at 40k miles now and I cant stand to drive it. (PS I have complaints about their gear slamming transmission and shuttering v4 mode but that’s another story)

  • Kevin Golden June 16, 2020

    Have a 2014 Silverado. Bought it brand new. I have had this issue since I bought it. Brought to the techs attention when having the oil changed. Even took the tech for a ride. The only answer I got was that GM’s drivelines were junk. Still this day it does it between 65-80 mph. I have about 77,000 miles.

  • Karen O June 10, 2020

    Raising hand! Same issue here. Just bought a 2015 Yukon Denali. Right around 75-80 miles the shaking begins! Been to service once for the issue. Replaced brake pads and rotors and said I need new tires. Uh tires are brand new. Anyway, still shakes. Back to the dealer it will go!

    • Phillis James August 11, 2020

      I had that problem took it to dealership and they said the wrong transmission fluid was in it. They changed it out and now the problem is solved. I wish they would’ve told me that when I bought it in 2015

  • Trae Calvert June 10, 2020

    I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 2wd crew cab short bed. I’ve noticed that it shakes at highway speeds for a while now, and thought it was a tire out of balance. I replaced the tires at about 35K ( currently has 44K) and thought it was the tires from the factory causing it, although it didn’t change after the new tires were installed. I really began to notice it on the toll road with 85mph speed limit, it starts to sound like a growling noise at the higher speeds. I would be happy to know how to resolve this issue before anything major occurs.

  • Richard muncey June 9, 2020

    I bought a new 2016 Silverado and it shakes so bad its embarrassing I have plenty of videos I have taken to show my friends

  • Jorge aguinaga June 8, 2020

    Just bought a 2016 gmc sierra elevation 4×4 6 speed automatic transmission last week and it shakes once it passes 70 mph , its unbelievable, truck only has 29 k miles, Gm should take care of this and fix the issue

  • Bradley crowder June 8, 2020

    I have a 2014 Chevrolet silverado LT Z71 offroad that shakes at 70mph+. Alignments and new tires do not fix the problem. I also have a problem with the truck shutting off randomly, and sensors not working for short periods of time

  • Jeffery Webb June 6, 2020

    I have a 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 v8 that shakes at 70mph, has a hard shift when put into drive and sometimes when I slow down. I want to be add to the class action lawsuit for the Chevy Shake.

  • Michael Brown June 1, 2020

    UGGG!!!!! I lost my @$$ trading in a 2016 GMC SIERRA SLT (loaded, NAV, stitched leather) the works – over $50,000 !!! last 6 digits of the VIN is 172172. I will never forget it. I traded it in July 2018 for a Ford. Lost a lot of money on that trade. Horrible customer service experience, like I am the crazy one. I showed them the chevy shakes youtube videos, I also showed them a video where some mechanics in mexico were trading out drive shafts to fix it (this is in 2017)….they laughed me out the service shop. THEY WOULD NOT WORK WITH ME. They wanted to put new tires on a 20,000 mile truck. i said do it, if it works, i pay for them, if it doesn’t, you pay for the tires. THEY WOULD NOT BITE….so i bought them myself, and $1,000 later……SAME SHAKE ISSUE….all they could tell me was that “everything is within tolerance”. I still dont know what that means?!?!? They wanted to trade me up to a Denali, which was barely nicer than my SLT, for $25K more. I agreed with him in theory, I had to trade it in, or sue them. I had no time for lawsuits, wife had 4 surgeries, kids graduating college etc. etc….
    Only good thing is that the truck would mix your coffee for you. :->

  • Mark irmiter May 29, 2020

    Bought new, 2018 Silerado. At around 15k front end shook at 60+ mph. Deal said that on tires. Continued. Next scheduled maintenance, advised dealer same vibration exists. Told it was tires, again. At 29k, scheduled maintenance, advised dealer problem was worse. Paid for alignment, tire rotation and some balancing, on a special tire machine, $75.00, extra. Dealer acknowledged problem 1st reported at 15k, still ongoing. Still shakes at 60 + mpg. With 30k.

  • Andrew Burkhart May 29, 2020

    I have a 2018 Silverado 1500 6.2, 20,000 miles. hard shift in lower gears, and whining. Also when switching from park to drive/reverse vehicle jumps. Have went to dealership no fix.

  • Stanley Black May 25, 2020

    I own a 2017 Silverado It, been dealing with this problem for a while I thought it was bad tire, had a rotation done and same problem at speeds of 70 to 80 mph. Please contact me in reference to class action.

  • Raymond Lacelle May 24, 2020

    Currently my 2018 Colorado has been sitting at a dealership with a vibration problem after the flush.The dealer told me they don’t have a transmission tech to asses the problem, I told them i would get it towed to another dealership that has a tech.GM customer care did not like that idea because the dealer told GM customer care that it was safe to drive.I told GM customer care that the dealer had no right to tell you if it is safe to drive because they don’t have a tech to asses the problem. So i gave them a couple of scenarios to think about. 1st scenario i pick up the truck drive away no problem untill i find a tech to repair the problem. 2nd scenario i drive the truck away, the problem with the vibration causes me to lose total control of the vehicle, i wind up hitting a school bus full of kids killing them all. Ya the truck is still there and it seems no one wants to to get back to me concerning this problem. My son owns the all new AT4 and guess what he has the hard shift problem in his transmission too not sure what he is going to do yet becuase he bought it at the same dealership my truck is sitting at good luck with our problems. Don’t be afraid to use my scenarios with your dealership when you bring it in for your problem.

  • Timothy S McElroy May 20, 2020

    Bought new 2017 Silverado. Truck was shaking day after I drove off lot between 60 mph and 80 mph. Shook so bad I thought it was torque converter slipping. Took back to dealer 3 times in first 1500 miles for balancing and front end alignments. Finally was told that it was within GM parameters. After 5000 miles shake decreased by about 50%.
    Put new tires on at 50000 miles. It was so bad I could not drive over 55 mph.for approximately 5000 miles Felt like rear end or driveshaft was coming coming apart along with a few times when accelerating on highway had rear wheels jumping / wheel hop.
    Still shakes all the time between 60 and 80 since new tires, currently have 63000 miles.
    Sign me up for lawsuit

  • Cortny Anderson May 18, 2020

  • Ed Schrader May 16, 2020

    I have a 2017 chevy Silverado with a vibration at 65 to 80 MPH been to the dealer ship multiple times. Was told it had bad tires and charged me $140 dollars, replaced tires and had dealership perform alignment. No change, same vibration issue.
    The vehicle has 57300 miles on it and will be out of warranty at 60K.
    Have a call to the dealership but haven’t heard back from them.

  • Jennifer A May 3, 2020

    2008 Chevy tahoe needs to be added to this at first we thought it was maybe our tires we have changed our tires the shaking has not stopped when you accelerate over 75 the karst beacons to shake. We’ve change the transmission oil that didn’t seem to give it a relief.

    • Jennifer A May 3, 2020

      Sorry I wasn’t done with my initial complaint. When accelerating the gas and either will pull back or give it a good jump as if it’s slipping are going to drop something out of the hood of the car. PSI jumps up super high. Spark plugs and wires are consistently changed and still no relief.

  • Tim Henderson May 2, 2020

    Purchased a New 2018 GMC Serria in April of 2019 6.2 8 speed it’s been in the shop 6 times since new,last time they installed a new jerk converter ! Yes jerk because that’s all this POS dose, it’s so bad that I barely got up some hills pulling a boat ! Thought I was going to have to get a tow truck ! Now it’s doing the Jerk going up hills with no trailer ! When you take off from a dead stop it shifts down and about throws you Thur window!

  • Debra Smith May 1, 2020

    My 2016 Silverado Extended Cab Z71 5.3L is shaking when I go over 70 MPH. Had the tire Road forced balanced and that did not hel much. Dealer said they never had this problem with the 6 speed but have seen it in the 8 speed. Never told me what the cause was in the 8 speed. It is going back again since I had the Road Force Balance done. I had a 2011 and a 2013 before the 2016. Neither of them vibrated at 70 MPH. Really annoying. Especially for a $51,000.00 vehicle.

    The transmission in my 2016 Sierra Denali with a 6.2 liter 8 speed, completely let go 4 days ago. I had been dealing with shudder which was supposedly fixed by flushing the trans 3 times in a row. Then it started upshifting and downshifting in increments of 1000rpm for no reason. 1500 to 2500 to 3500, back down to 2500 and then 1500. Would shift every 5 seconds. Dealerships couldn’t get it to repeat and didn’t fix it. It finally failed completely and will be in the shop for a while.

  • James Ledford March 19, 2020

    I have a 2019 Silverado and have experienced the following
    1. When starting out on a cold engine in the mornings Truck does not want to Make the first shift and the trans slips
    2. When slowing down the truck sometimes down shift and jerks the truck like and it feel like the truck was bump from the rear but another vehicle
    3 . Thieve is a vibration that can be felt when the truck is traveling between 37 and 42 MPH

  • Amie March 10, 2020

    2015 suburban that has been towed 3 times in the last month due to an oil pump blowing up, breaks going out and the wiring harness corroding. We’ve also had our shocks going out, several leaks in the roof, windshield and engine, oil leak, back hatch broke among a million other things. I also have the Chevy shake happen when we reach 50 MPH.

  • Alan Felker March 7, 2020

    I have experienced the same shake while driving my 2016 GMC Sierra. This shake not only occurs while driving at high speeds, but I have also had it while pulling out of my driveway. It not only shook, but I also had a loss of power and the truck wouldn’t shift. Once I was able to get the vehicle to shift, my stabilizer track light came on, along with my check engine light, which was flashing. I drove to the closet auto parts store and they checked it for codes. Apparently, I have a misfire in cylinder four along with a cold start, rough idle. I have spent so much money trying to fix this issue. It is so frustrating when it could be so many different things. My GMC Sierra only has 55,643 miles on it, I do not understand why I am dealing with these issues already.

    I have a new 2019 Silverado and my truck has spent over a month at the dealership while they balance tires and tell me the truck is fine. Its not fine. Between 68 and 72 mph its starts shaking and gets worse as your speed increases.

  • Sharron Norman February 25, 2020

    I kept telling my husband that something was wrong with his 2015 Silverado truck! It shakes like the wheels are going to come off. Now I know I was right! What’s going to be done?

  • blitzsd February 25, 2020

    Purchased a 2017 Cadillac CT6 Premium Luxury 3.0TT at $73,000 and now it sits.
    Dealer cannot fix and tells me all is fine.
    I cannot deal with the dangerous lurching and neck breaking shifting from 1-2-3 and then from 3-2-1 gears.
    If you travel at speeds over 50, you cannot focus on anything in the rear view mirror or side mirrors. Shaking is horrible.
    What a lemon and GM is really sticking it to their customers. Sorry Ex-Customers.

    Count me in on this

    I have a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71 LTZ. I got this truck used from the original owner April 2019, he told me that the tires needed to be balanced because the truck has a small shake. I balanced the tires, inflated tire pressure, and many other troubleshooting and my truck still continues to shake when I get it above 50 MPH. I’ve been googling and researching how to fix it. I just now stumbled across an information thread titled “Chevy Shake.” I’ve spent all day reading stories and information about this issue, and now I know my truck has that “Chevy Shake” because of the the driveshaft. I would very much like to join this lawsuit, as I feel GM should replace this defective/inferior part for free as a recall.

    I have a 2010 Chevy Cobalt LT MODEL , and it shakes also,I didn’t know about this going on.Now that makes sense.while my drive shaft is doing this. I thought it was supposed to be lose.please put me down on your list.I am a member of Top Class Action.and it does affect the 2010 year also.ty you can call me or email me.

  • William K February 13, 2020

    I have a 2015 Silverado 1500 that just sits in my driveway. I replaced the factory wheels and tires because the dealer said they were the cause of the shaking. That didn’t help one bit. Once the truck gets above 70ish MPH, it shakes, rattles, vibrates so bad making it unbearable, and downright dangerous to drive.
    I’ve been a GM guy my entire life, I don’t think that’s the case anymore. GM puts profits before the safety of customers.

  • Justin Segner February 10, 2020

    2017 Chevy redline Silverado dealer just said everything was fine but truck shakes so bad at high speeds it’s doesn’t feel safe to drive

  • Meagan Baldwin February 4, 2020

    2015 Chevy Suburban That vibrates horribly and sounds like it takes over the entire car. Noticed it does it when in V4 and lessens once it switched to V8. Chevy claims the diagnostic I had done came back fine. My personal mechanic started doing various repairs of what they thought it could be and after researching further found the article about the Chevy Shake and realized that’s what was happening.

  • George Gregory February 2, 2020

    I have a 2019 silverado L84 engine 8 speed transmission and at 65 mph it shakes/and or vibrates and gets worse when it shifts or changes engine modes. the dealer changed the fluid and changed the torque converter and now said that it was normal. I don’t agree that a vibration is normal. And if it is why didn’t they tell me that before I bought the truck.

  • Dena Alfonso January 28, 2020

    We have replaced tires twice on our Tahoe because we thought all the shaking was caused by the tires. After spending the money for new tires the problem was never fixed. It still shakes. How ridiculous.

  • Niesha Pratcher January 7, 2020

    I have a 2011 Chevy Camaro RS-Convertible. My car had a moment where it just started shaking valiantly as if it was having a seizure. I was driving at about 45-50 mph when it occurred. Since then, it’s shut off car shut off on me while driving. I was going fairly slow as I was getting over into a right turn lane. A message appeared ” Service Stabil Track” & “Engine Power reduce” when I tried to turn it back on. After about 2 min. it managed to come back on with the same warning messages displayed. I would not go above 5-6 mph. Luckily, I was not far from home so I crept all the way home and parked it. The next day I had it towed. After some at least a week they came to the conclusion that a valve or wire connected to my engine had gone bad and I had that repaired. Now, it currently still has a shaking vibration feeling when I drive it. Sometimes it’s faint other times very noticeable. I’ve had people in my car asked what was that? It’s embarrassing. I took it to Porter Chevy where they tested, drove and felt the shaking as well. I was told it’s because I have a convertible and that over time the air flow with the car may cause a small vibration. This vibration is everyday and every time I drive my car. I am nervous when driving it now and afraid it may shutdown on me again. My 2011 Chevy Convertible Camaro was a gift to me and has been paid off for almost 3years. I love my car but might have to give it up because I can’t keep driving afraid.

  • Neal Miller January 6, 2020

    I bought a 2018 silverado 1500 and around 20,000 miles I developed a shake on the highway. I now have almost 28,000 miles and it has gotten worse. Have an appointment at the dealer friday. Just to have on record since it seems there not doing anything about it.

  • Randall TUBBS January 6, 2020

    I bought a 2018 colorado new payed 43000 for a mid size truck has only 1900 miles and I hate driving it because of the bad transmission feels like the drive line is about fall out I have had many gmc cars and trucks but I will never buy again the dealer Tuscaloosa Chevy told me they would flush the transmission and it would take eight hours I live 38 miles from the dealer so they said no loaner and I lived to far to be taken home so I have to wait. Sure wish I had bought a ford.

  • Leslie Willig January 5, 2020

  • Virginia Jones January 5, 2020

    we leased a 2019 chevy Equinox in Nov 2018. In Apr 2019 I did what was suggested by local news . Put reardown and turn AC on hi and drive at posted speeds for a few miles. This helps cool down car quickly. ( we had excessive heat in April) The car started vibrating so much so I pulled over and put windows up for fear the vibration would cause me to loose control of car. But of course GM can’t fix it because its “ARODYNAMICS” deal with it.

  • DONALD BISCHOFF December 31, 2019

    My 2017 Yukon XL shook bad when going fast. I traded it in a month ago. It was working when I ordered my 2020. GMC was on strike and it took 3 months for the new one to come in. During the 3 month wait, the dealer claimed my transmission was bad and he deducted $2000 from my original sales slip. It would drive perfect until the brakes were touched. When the brakes were applied it would go into neutral while driving. Forward and reverse would not work. You could let it sit and it would work again. I dont even feel like it was my transmission. I feel like my dealer mechanic didnt know what he was doing. I feel like the $2000 wasnt my fault as my vehicle was working when I traded it in. My vehicle was working 90 days later when my new vehicle was suppose to be in. The tranny started acting up 3 months later a few days before my new vehicle came in.

  • Adam Gullifer December 29, 2019

    I have a 2015 6.2 LTZ 4×4 and troubleshot this issue and replaced, balanced, and added multiple parts. The problem with this lawsuit is that it’s focused on one part that is the culprit. Evey change I implemented helped and currently happy enough. When I took my driveshaft into a specialist to be balanced, they said it was almost perfect and if there is a shake this wasn’t it. There are multiple repairs to fix this problem. If it was as easy as balancing a shaft for a bunch of trucks they would have done it. Regardless of your math.

    I had a 2015 that had the shaking problem. Chevy worked on it for over a year and then bought it back. I got into a 2017 that does the same thing.

  • Leo December 29, 2019

    I had a 2008 Silverado crew cab with the 5.3ltr v8 and 4 speed auto 2wd that had the driveshaft fail twice. Both times I was going at freeway speeds. The dealer replaced it but I ended up selling the truck instead. The driveshaft is too long and improperly balanced. The lawsuit should include earlier models too.

  • John Miller December 29, 2019

    I have a problem with an earlier model Cadillac dts that shakes at higher speed and i can feel the shaking is in the drive shaft.i just replaced a front right wheel bearing in my 2007 dts with only 83,000 miles.i know its an earlier model cadillac but i would expect this kind of problem in a 1959 Cadillac due to age of car.

  • Kyle December 29, 2019

    I have a V6 2014 Silverado. I have only experienced the shake at highway speeds when the truck is switching between V6 and V4 modes. This only occurs when I am barely on the gas. If I come off the gas the truck switches to V4 mode and rides smoothly. If I accelerate the truck remains in V6 and rides smoothly. It’s only in the limbo state between V6 and V4 that the shake occurs. I have become accustomed to this and do not necessarily feel unsafe when this occurs, but if it were to shake constantly I could see how this could be a problem. I am curious to hear if those of you with the Chevy shake problem experience this in this V6/V4 scenario (or V8/V4) or if it is all of the time.

  • Dustin Sharp December 29, 2019

    Yes! I have the Chevy Shake! Had a 2016 1/2 ton that was in and out of the shop more often than me driving it for the shake issue. I got so fed-up with it and GM would not work with me on returning the truck, that I traded it in for a 2018 chevy 2500. Thinking the 3/4 ton trucks don’t have this issue. But they do as well!

  • Hanz zimmermann December 29, 2019

    I have a 2015 Silverado and I have the Chevy shake at 70 miles per hour.
    I brought it back twice to the dealership and they said it was from tire not being balance correctly. They did the tire rebalance and the shake is still present. It is a serious problem and GM does not want to fix it and have been covering it up for a long time.
    Sign me up for the class action suite .

  • Angel M Goire December 29, 2019

    I have a 2019 silverado and yes it shakes at highway speeds and transmission downshifts hard. Not going to lie might be cause I’m speeding lol but my main concern is transmission cause vibration could also come from this as well. Ultimately feeling like driveshaft and saying it is not driveshaft could be both.

  • Carlos December 29, 2019

    My 2016 also starts shaking around around 70 mph

  • Xavier Garcia December 29, 2019

    Noticed the shake as soon as I bought the truck. Brought it back to the dealer and was told it was a tire. They replaced it but the issue didn’t go away. Went through several sets of tire and constantly rotating them.

  • Cameron Rayment December 29, 2019

  • Mel December 29, 2019

    Our 2015 Chevy Silverado shakes. We had to take it to the dealership multiple times and got the run around. Finally they changed our tires that helped, but it still shakes

  • Bob December 29, 2019

    Just go to a good driveshaft shop and have them make a driveshaft for your truck, or wait and complain for a few years before you get any relief from Gm

  • Austin Warner December 29, 2019

    My 2015 Sierra shakes at freeway speeds

  • Anthony Scott December 29, 2019

    My 2016 shakes around 70mph also. Sign me up.

  • Clinton Hardy December 29, 2019

    Hopefully a recall gets approved from this in addition to that problem their another one as well for example just shutting off in the middle of making turns

  • Howard December 29, 2019

    I have a 2019 LTZ Crew cab 6.2L 10 spd transmission. Experienced teeth rattling shaking at between 65-80 mph. Twice in same direction of ny throughway eastbound. Just before 690 exit. Since it was the same stretch of highway I assumed it was the highway, but after reading this it makes me wonder.

  • Danzell Lomax December 29, 2019

    This problem goes back before 2011. I have a 2005 that has the same issue. In my 2011 I had to replace, the entire rear…..

  • Ron Harwood December 29, 2019

    My 2017 GMC Evolution has the shake at 70 mph and it also down shifts hard at times. Iv asked the dealer about it and was blown off about it.

    • Mike meuse December 29, 2019

      I have the same problem with mine they also turned their heads told me it was the tires at Amesbury chevy in mass. I am a tire installer with a brand new balancer and a hunter alignment machine. The truck shakes when all 4 tires are jacked up off the ground in drive . So its not the tires.

  • Steven Rohrlich December 29, 2019

    I own a 2014 Silverado LTZ Double Can and it has the Chevy Shake also. Happens from about 72 mph up to about 94 mph. I’ve brought it to 4 different dealerships to be checked out. 3 of them blew me off and the 4th said that they didn’t experience it when they road tested it.

  • CJ Myers December 29, 2019

  • Steven Rohrlich December 29, 2019

    I own a 2014 Silverado that has this problem. I went to 4 different dealerships with it to be checked out. All 4 of them said that there was nothing wrong with it.

  • Andrew Butusov December 29, 2019

    My 2018 Z71 Crew cab Silverado has had the “Chevy Shake” since day one. We mentioned it during the test drive and we’re told it was the tires and it would subside shortly. At this point I’ve been denied and repair after being to dealer multiple times. Even went for a ride with the local GM representative and was told it was normal. It shakes sooo much at 75+ it’ll make a half full can rotate in the cup holder.

  • Aaron johnson December 29, 2019

    2016 Silverado z71 crew cab 1500 shakes at 70mph took to dealership numerous times kept blaming tires road forced balanced them at 3 different shops even went as far as buying new rims and tires and road force balancing 2x still nothing was done to fix or even attempt to fix

    • Andrew Butusov December 29, 2019

      They did the same for my truck and finally told me it was within acceptable levels and there was no further repairs needed.

  • Jeremy Harris December 29, 2019

    I owned 2o15 Silverado . Did this all the time and transmission was junk . To point didn’t feel safe take down the road .Dealership told me it was up to gm standards nothing wrong it .

  • Kleanthis Andreadakis December 28, 2019

    I had a 2014 GMC Sierra that had this shake (documented it in videos posted on YouTube). I had to FORCE GM to buy the vehicle back after much stress and financial loss including the hiring of an attorney. I now have a 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 that has the shake at higher speeds.

  • Jesse December 28, 2019

    My 18 Silverado shakes at highway speeds.

  • Andrew Saggers December 28, 2019

    I have a vibration after about 60mph in my 2017 Silverado. I also went through 2 sets of front brake pads within 15,000 miles. Not only that but my throttle bottle, rear end, and transmission all went out within the first 15,000 miles. It also burned through 3.5 quarts of oil within the first 1,500 miles. Chevrolet would not warranty of them!

  • Joe Riley December 28, 2019

    I experienced the Chevy Shake around 60 to 68 miles an hour

  • Rick December 28, 2019

    I have a 2015 GMC Sierra single cab and once i get above 100kph the truck shakes violently, i thought it was a tire problem and the dealer told me it was as well. Changed tires twice now made no difference,thanks for letting us know about this issue defiantly a safety issue.

  • Eduardo December 28, 2019

    Yes I have noticed the same shaking at higher speed . I notice a vibration around 60-68 mph .

  • Malcolm Malone December 28, 2019

    Yes have the Chevy shake in my 2014 Silverado 1500. LTZ 4×4 with the 5.3. Mentioned it to the dealership after I bought it they blew it off. I put new tires on it had them road forces balanced and the shake is still there. Asked about what could be causing it again at another dealership some time later and they blew it off. There is definitely something not right. Traded in a 2004 Sierra Denali with 126000 miles on it that drove down the road smooth as glass. Wish I’d kept the 04.

  • Joe Johannes December 28, 2019

    I just traded in a 2016 silverado 3500. The truck had 277,000 miles and I had vibration that was worsening. Had a hard time using cruise control as you had to change speeds to make the vibration go away. I hope my 2019 does not end up the same…

  • Rick December 28, 2019

    2014 Silverado High Country I do notice a vibration around 60-65 . Thought it may have been a tire issue but I see it could be in the driveline here.

  • Brandon Martinez December 28, 2019

    My dad’s Cadillac escalade has gone 120MPH+ and we have never experienced any shaking, not even in my 2019 Silverado its govenor is set to 99MPH. Maybe its luck but I do lots of heavy towing and never felt unsafe in my truck with has 40k.

  • Darryl Harder December 28, 2019

    Yes I have noticed the same shaking at higher speed . Thank you for letting us know about this and I do believe that this is a Safty issue

  • Andrew December 28, 2019

    Owned a 2014 Sierra SLT for 4 years and managed to put 123,000 miles on it. The truck had a minor vibration around 70, any faster or slower and it would go away. Replaced the ring gear in the rear differential as they were out of tolerance from the supplier. This was around 18,000 and never had the issue again. I went through three sets of tires and it was as smooth as silk the entire time.

  • Melvin Burbage December 28, 2019

    I have a 2014 Silverado and 2016 Yukon. Both have this shake issue. I have identical Michelin tires on both and was hoping putting $1000 worth of tires on it was going to solve it but it didn’t.

  • Steven December 28, 2019

    2015 Chevy 1500 4×4. I experience it at above 63mph but stops around 78 though. This has been a GM problem for decades however and isn’t just limited to GM trucks. Why are people just now filing a class action? This should have been started like 20 years ago when this issue first arrived. First GM truck i noticed it on was our company 2wd 2003 1500. That thing shook to the point we traded it in for another only have that truck do it as well so we had an on going hoke thst it was a nonhighway truck and was limited to only being practical for city driving routes.

  • Rick A Lewis December 28, 2019

    My 2015 crew cab Silverado had a vibration after 60 mph. Had it at dealer four times to try and fix. Got gm tec service involved and then they said it was a characteristic of the vehicle.

  • William Going December 28, 2019

    I just bought a 2014 with 90000 miles, I drove it around with salesman on a route they use for test rides ,all seemed fine. Didn’t drive much first two weeks, then went out of town on Interstate noticed the shake everyone is talking about. I hope GM has to fix this. I have a 2005 Silverado with 247000 miles, it is smoother at 70-80 mph. Was hoping to get 250,000 out of the 2014 but this is unacceptable. Definitely seems to be driveline not in wheels.

  • Lucious Thomas December 28, 2019

    I have 2016 Escalade and mine started this last month. The dealership flushed the transmission fluid recently and it is better now, but it just doesn’t drive the same anymore. I only have 18k miles on it.

  • Jon Kunath December 28, 2019

    2015 gmc sierra 2500 HD diesel
    Mine shakes too over 50 mph any gear
    Dealer blamed tires. Nope replaced them too still shakes..I did an alignment too..I even replaced driveshaft with aftermarket and still shakes. Saw a GM service bulletin on this relating it to a torque converter shimmy but i dont think it pertained to the Allison diesel transmission..been living with it ever since i bought it but I am angry the dealership always has blamed it on tires, brake rotors etc…also have always smelled rear brakes occasionally since I bought with 12k.. of course the dealers could never get them to heat up and smell on their test drives but once i hit 40k they blame it on a wear item called a “sticky “caliper and won’t warranty it even though I complained and documented this several times right after I bought it with 12k

  • Wes December 28, 2019

    My truck shakes. I have taken it to tire shops to check balance and rotation. I thought it was tire related. It still does it and I have just lived with it.

  • Thomas E Redman December 28, 2019

    Took vehicle in for this was forced to replace a tire and have a road force balance then was told the shake was within manufacturing tolerances and they would no longer diagnose problem or repair any more vibrations 2016 Silverado Z71 5.3 V8

  • Jeremy December 28, 2019

    You all are a bunch of liars there’s nothing anything wrong with these vehicles so stop making up lies

    • Tyler December 28, 2019

      Jeremy, you are probably driving a 1995 Geo or work for GM. I have an 80,000 dollar Yukon XL Denali that shudders in the city and around 73 MPH, and I have no reason to lie about it. I still love the looks of the vehicle, but GM did a terrible job validating the design of the 8 speed transmission and rushed it to the market among other issues we have seen with these vehicles. I am in reasearch and development for a large company, and they are liars if they did not know these vehicles would show these problems, or they are that incompetent which is pathetic for a company like GM. If GM does not stand behind these these issues, I will not be buying another next generation 80k SUV from them when they arrive next year. The Navigator looks better and better without these issues.

    • Jon Kunath December 28, 2019

      I’ll let you drive it but make sure you glue your dentures in does shake so dont tell me what you dont know
      Maybe you got lucky so far with yours or it hasn’t started doing it yet for you

  • Jeremy norton December 28, 2019

    I have a 2015 GMC Sierra it shakes and sometimes it shimmer numerous times I’ve been to two different dealers on this issue. They flushed the transmission and replaces the torque converter. I mentioned to the dealer at the time of repairs to check the drive shaft due to being unbalanced. In the service bulletin it states series of checks including the balance of the drive shaft. I wish the person who designed these trucks would have took a little more effort into suspension design my front tires rub on the front sway bar when making turns.

  • Lerman tucker December 28, 2019

    I have a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado it shimmies and shakes when you’re at high speed on the inner state also when you’re parked in your be here who is in park and you pull down to drive sometimes it makes a real loud clunky noise

  • David December 28, 2019

    I have a 2016 Silverado High Country and it also has this shake at interstate speeds.

  • Lisa Clark December 28, 2019

    We have a 2015 Tahoe LT with 65k that has been shaking at speeds over 60-65mph for years – enough to make our phones shake right out of their holder or charger. We’ve taken it to the dealership for this issue at least 7-8 times and have been told it was x,y,z and so on, never fixing the issue completely. First it was “warped rotors” in the front, so we replaced them and they’re still shaking. Then it was the back rotors; so we replaced those (they didn’t need it and could have been turned down, but we opted to just replace them since it was only a few weeks after replacing the front.) Then we were told the shaking was because the tires needed balancing – nope, still not fixed. Then alignment and road force balancing of tires was needed; did that, not fixed. We were told it was an issue with the transmission fluid being dirty; had that flushed, and it did nothing. Then it was the map sensors that needed to be changed, and we did that (paying for all of this) and still it wasn’t fixed. Of
    Course now we are both perplexed and annoyed that we keep bringing our truck in to have this issue diagnosed and repaired, and get the run around, so we have recently been considering replacing the tires even though they are at least 20,000 miles from needing to being replaced; but also are considering just trading it in for a new truck, assuming ours was just a lemon. Seeing this suit kind of irritates me, as the dealership continues to tell us they have had no one else complain of this issue, which is obviously not true. Had we known years ago this was a common problem in Tahoes, I’m positive we would not have kept the truck and continued to pour money into it to diagnose a problem that GM knew exactly how to fix.

  • David December 28, 2019

    I also purchased a 2014 Silverado LTZ that has the shakes and hard transmission shifts and all the dealership state is that it’s normal. Include me in this investigation

  • Barbara A Green December 28, 2019

    I have a 2019 Chevy Equanox 2.0 this vehicle been in the dealership about twenty times since I purchase it and November was a year that I bought it, when I test drive it there was a smell of a burn I was told it was the new brakes smell and to find out the smell was coming from the passenger front end struts they fixed that it also has a rattling noise that they couldn’t figure out what it was I told the service department it was coming from the driver side window they said it wasn’t the window so the service tech decided it was the driver side headliner clips they the vehicle stayed in the shop for a week they had to order the parts I pick the vehicle up driving it for a couple days the same problem took it to the dealership again this time the service tech decided it’s the driver door,I told the dealership this vehicle should have been sent back to GM they lie and take advantage of women if you don’t no anything about buying a car I got very angry and frustrated with them they had me looking at another vehicle like they were going to change my vehicle out with another one to find out sitting in the dealership for two or three hours to be asked to fill out a new credit application that sounds really stupid to me when I already have a loan with that being said this vehicle is still not fixed they lie to you and charge a lot for these cheap car’s.The said part about it is I talked to one of GM representative about the vehicle she communicating with me and she stop answering her phone I told her I feel I bought a new Lemon and I’m still not satisfied with this vehicle.

  • Shawn Tallon December 28, 2019

    I own a 2016 Chevy Silverado LTZ that has the shake.It also shifts hards and jerks at low speeds.I will most likely never buy another Chevy after owning three in the past twenty years.

  • Tracey Paquin December 28, 2019

    My husband and I bought a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali and it has been in service for this problem more than once. They change fluids and send us on our way, but it doesn’t correct it. I have notified GMC myself as well as the dealership to no avail.

  • Kamaria Lewis December 28, 2019

    I have a 2018 Chevy equinox that shakes after I brake. I had it checked out and the spark plugs were replaced, however my vehicle still shakes after I brake

  • Charles mulherin December 28, 2019

    I have the GM shake in my 2016 Sierra. I purchased it and immediately knew there was an issue. The dealership promised they would fix it. I brought it there numerous times and they claimed they fixed it, but they never did. I have videos that I’ve showed them and took them driving and they said it’s normal. It’s far from normal. 3 years later it’s still bad, right around 75 mph.
