A good focused group of knowledgeable folks =

And if that isn't enough, hows about from the government regulatory agency, NHTSA =

A lot of bellyaching over a vague post on some internet fansite. For all anyone knows they could be buying back 5 trucks nationwide LOL.

Well lets see. Your first link is not "directly from the OEM".

GM Authority is owned and operated by Motrolix LLC. In addition to GM Authority, Motrolix also owns and operates the following properties:

Ford Authority
Cadillac Society

GM Authority is not owned, operated, supported, or otherwise condoned by General Motors, its brands, subsidiaries, or partners.

BTW, the same site the OP posted?

Your second and third links respectively...................

"GM is buying back an unknown amount of both Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups with diesel engines. The company is mum about the number of trucks involved. Also unknown are the years the issue is affecting. What we do know is that the problem involves quality issues surrounding the 6.6-liter L5P V8 Duramax turbo-diesel engine."


"General Motors, LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2021-2022 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Silverado 3500, GMC Sierra 2500, and Sierra 3500 vehicles with electronic brake control modules (EBCM) replaced during vehicle assembly. The bolts that attach the brake pressure modulator valve (BPMV) assembly may not be properly tightened, which could fail to seal the two sub-assemblies and allow water intrusion"

Not sure what water intrusion in brake control module has to do with buybacks of pickups with diesel engines?

Your 4th link thread starts with a reference to the web rag in your first link?

Your 5th link results in a download of a recall from 2019, not a buyback of a truck?

I'm confused.

Well I have read on other forums that they are replacing the engines at the Flint assembly plant. If I owned a highly optioned truck, I would say give me a loaner for a month and replace my engine and give it back.

my niebours truck has been in the dealership for 3 months now and they gave him a 1 ton rental to use with no end date. they said he is authorized for the rental until his truck is fixed.
