    Default Letter from GM Concerning Rough Idle

    Anyone get a letter asking about a rough idle and consequently a lack of power? I don't have a problem but the letter says keep letter with truck. GM will fix said problem if it's under 150 thousand miles.

    What years does your letter say it covers? What does it say the issue may be? I was hoping to find a letter that covered the 05 model year. I found this one a few weeks ago, is yours the same?:

    Dear General Motors Customer:
    As the owner of a 2008, 2009, or 2010 GM vehicle, your satisfaction with our product is very important to us.

    This letter is intended to make you aware that some 2008-2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer; GMC Envoy; HUMMER H2; 2008-2010 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe; GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL; HUMMER H3; 2009-2010 Chevrolet Colorado; GMC Canyon; and HUMMER H3T 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 this occurs, it could result in reduced engine power.

    Do not take your vehicle to your GM dealer as a result of this letter unless you believe that your vehicle has the condition as described above.

    What We Have Done: General Motors is providing owners with additional protection for the condition described above. If this condition occurs on your 2008-2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer; GMC Envoy; HUMMER H2; 2008-2010 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe; GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL; HUMMER H3; 2009-2010 Chevrolet Colorado; GMC Canyon; or HUMMER H3T vehicle, equipped with a V8 engine, within 10 years of the date your vehicle was originally placed in service or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, the condition will be repaired for you at no charge. Diagnosis or repair for conditions other than the condition described above is not covered under this special coverage program.

    What You Should Do: If you believe that your vehicle has the condition described above, repairs and adjustments qualifying under this special coverage must be performed by a General Motors dealer. You may want to contact your GM dealer to find out how long they will need to have your vehicle so that you may schedule the appointment at a time that is convenient for you. This will also allow your dealer to order parts if they are not already in stock.
