2011 POS Silverado

First off I work in the auto industry, currently own two GM vehicles and have had two others. I purchased my 2011 (lemon) Silverado 1500 brand new on March 5, 2011. Since then I have had alignment issues, which now I have found to be a defective rack and pinion, under sprung springs and bad shocks. I also must complain about how the transmission slips or slams into gear. I have also had multiple vibrations and rattles. To top it off Delillo Chevrolet (whom I purchase my truck from) broke my door panel while replacing a speaker and refused to fix it. I took it to Rydell (whom has also messed up my Vette) to have it warrantied but they claimed that they could not warranty it because another dealership broke it. My father had similar experiences with GM back in the 1980's with his Cadillac and Corvette. I am DONE with GM and so is my family. After visiting four dealerships and suing GM, I am stuck with a lemon and am told that the problems that I am experiencing are normal or am [non-permissible content removed]'ed. I am a master tech, custom motorcycle builder and an auto broker. I know my way around and know that these issues are not normal. The sad thing is I was seriously considering a new 2015 Z06 as GM has addressed the interior quality that I have always complained about. My father and I were planing on purchasing matching cars and my wife a new Denelli. At this pint we have opted not to as we can not justify purchasing anymore crap from GM. It is sad that GM and there dealer network do not stand behind the products that they build and sell. The government should have let GM go belly up. They most likely will anyways if they keep alienating the few loyal customers that they have left. If anyone has any advise on how to sort out a 2011 Silverado 1500 4x4, please contact me. I am at my whits end with this truck. Everyone that I have spoken with claims that they are [non-permissible content removed]!

    brutal story, man, sorry you got the citrus situation and the unintentional RPO "POS" option.
    I like/prefer GM products for a few decades, and I know from experience with some models such as my australian GTO, that the only effective way to deal with the suspension issues is via the aftermarket. I haven't found a good aftermarket shop locally, so I know it's not easy to do that. Sounds like it's time to trade-in vehicle(s) and try some other brand.
