Just read a few articles about "Chevy Shake". Apparently two 8 speed transmissions and aluminum drive shafts have been ID'd in a class action as the issue. Test drove a really nice truck recently and that thing just about shook my teeth loose. So...googled "shaking chevy truck" and up came the class action and a number of articles.

Wondering if anyone here has had issues like this and what did you do about it? We still have our 2004 Silverado LT3 and have replaced nearly everything on it...getting a reman transmission at the moment. I joke with DH that maybe he should think of this as "restoration" project rather than OMG here comes another big $$$$ repair!

Looking at Traverse for a daily driver now. Any issues with them??

Thanks! And...DH sends his thanks as well. [emoticon]

Never heard of Chevy shake. A good reason to do a thorough test drive prior to buying.

I hadn't heard of it either...but the truck we test drove shook all over. 2 years old. So... googled it and up popped the "chevy shake". Yikes!

Not sure if it is the same issue but I had a 2009 GMC dmax dually and it had a vibration when starting off. There was a GM service bulletin on this issue that was caused by the driveshaft angle. I took mine to the dealer and they fixed it no problems afterward traded it in in 2014.
