Wonder if anyone with a 2010 Chevrolet RoadTrek has received the following notice.

I received a notice, (letter) today from Chevrolet stating the following:

This letter is intended to make you aware that some 2010 model year Chevrolet Express vehicles, equipped with a V8 engine, may have a condition where the throttle position sensor may cause the engine to run rough and cause the malfunction indicator lamp and/or an Engine Reduced Power message to illuminate. If the occurs, it could result in reduced engine power.

General Motors is providing owners with additional protection for the condition described above. If this condition occurs within 10 years of the date your vehicle was originally placed in service or 120,000 miles, whichever occurs first, the condition will be repaired at no charge.

Note:

I have had this problem since I owned our RoadTrek, does not occur all the time, I have complained to General Motors about my problem. Today I was surprise to receive the letter.

There is more to the letter, I cut it short, will be contacting my local Chevrolet dealer.

Ron.
Thanks for the information I have a 2005 Chevy RV on a cutaway and have had this problem too but the Chevy Dealer wanted $500 to $600 hundred to fix it.I would think that a recall of this sort would apply to all engines of that type. I will check it out,I wonder where I could get a copy of that to show my dealer or if it was sent out to just the 2010 owners.

I got the same notice for my Silverado 5.3, but before I received the notice my wife was driving and the throttle position sensor went out. The truck would not go over 15mph. Dealer replaced the sensor and there as been no other problems.

Took my 2010 Chevy/RoadTrek to my local Chevrolet dealer, they installed a new Throttle Position Sensor in my vehicle as I had the problem were the engine would run rough and reducing power in the engine.

Chevrolet did mail out Notification Notices regarding the 2010 Chevrolet Express Vehicles with a V-8 Engine as some may have a problem where the Throttle Position Sensor may cause the engine to run rough and reducing the power in the engine.
