    Default RedThunder from West Virginia

    Hey Gang! New to your forum, Just recently traded my 2007 F-150 for a new 2011 Chevy Silverado LT extended cab. The Ford was my Fathers until he passed away in April of this year. His truck was never drove the last 2 years of his life and when I got it, I put just over 1500 miles on it since April. With just over 12,000 miles on it to start, the motor let go, with anti-freeze and oil mixing, the mechanic said either bad seals or a crack block was the cause. With Warranty run out, I was lead to a sales man who did me right and took care of me with my 2011 Chevy Silverado with just 26, 000 on her. I knew my Dad would understand, if this would happen to him while he was alive. This is my 3rd truck and my 3rd bowtie I have ever owned. I enjoy the drive of my Chevy and hope to be around for a while on this forum.

    Congratulations on the new Chevy and welcome to GMTC. I am sorry for your loss and I am sure your dad would understand. He would probably be pissed that something fairly new with low miles would have that serious a problem.
