What is The Chevy Shake?

Since 2016, many owners of certain General Motors vehicle models have noticed a disturbing shuddering or shaking of their new cars, SUV’s and trucks, at speeds of 25 mph or higher. If you are the owner of a Chevy, Cadillac or GMC and your model is included in the list below, you may be experiencing what has become known as the “Chevy Shake”.  The Chevy Shake reportedly happens when drivers start to speed up or slow down, which causes the vehicle to hesitate and/or shake, shudder, or engage in a hard shift when the driver attempts to change gears. You can exercise your lemon law rights in Georgia or any other state if you own a vehicle that has the Chevy shake and has not been repaired after numerous visits to the dealer for the dreaded shake.

    2016 Yukon Denali has been staking for a year or more. As of a week, ago the transmission starts slipping and now the vehicle moves very slowly.

    I have a 2018 GMC Canyon, at about 50,000 miles it stated to shift hard. Dealer said they installed the wiring fluid from the factory. About 3000 miles later the hard shifting came back, they said it is just the way they are. Now at 142,000 miles it has a severe shutter, dealer wants over $5,000 to replace transmission and tourqe converter.
