I had the same problem on my '10 CC LS. Dropped into the dealer to have them look at it on a saturday morning. It is a known issue and they replaced it on the spot under my warranty, had them in stock and it only took 15 minutes.

...had the same problem on our '07 HHR, anyone else w/ this issue?? This is on '10 1500 Silverado WT (in MA).
Did you bring this to the attention of your local dealer? I would recommend that you contact them for more information. Please feel free to keep me posted. Thank you in advance.

I would say in the last 2 Silverados I have owned I have had 5-7 bow ties replaced. I have never had any issues with the dealerships replacing them. Just wish they were made a little better....it is the adversting for the brand to everyone on the road and should look top notch IMO.

I had the same problem on my 09. They replaced it and it happened again. I then took off the outer piece using some fishing line. You can then leave it silver or replace it with those reflective tape replacements they have on the internet. I added the tape in yellow and it looks like new. The other advantage is it reflects back light at night.

My 2011 Silverado LT has the same exact issue, to be quite honest I'm just waiting for another warranty issue to show itself before I go to the dealer to get it all done at once...disappointing really.

I know it seems that gm has really gone down hill in this last model I hope they realize this and pick up quality or I will try out a Ford or Dodge.

I am glad to see that you are planning to work with your local dealer regarding this concern. Please feel free to keep m posted. You can also contact me via private message. Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

I would take a faded bow tie over a ford that the fuel tank might fall off while driving any day....

Yeah but some of these people that are saying about gauges already breaking and things of that nature. It is pretty ridiculous we are having problems with such new cars compared to older cars from the 50s 60s and 70s. And come on GM has had major recalls to at least Ford didn't take a bailout.

It is hard to compare cars from the '50s to the cars today. I am not saying GM does not have their falts but a issue with a bow tie is small potatoes. I think you can find issues with any new car, truck and SUV cause you will always hear from the ones complaing and not so much from the ones with trouble free trucks. Just my $0.02

Sorry your having Problems/Concerns with your New Silverado.....All New Trucks and/or Cars have some degree of problems and some have more than others, G.M./Chevy has had their Fair share, but so has Dodge and Ford,

When you have moment, do a Google Search.....on Recall's for both Ford and Dodge Trucks.....I was taken back when viewing some of the items, they have Recalls on for both Trucks!!!

As mentioned above by ajarman......One Recall from Ford is because(the fuel tank might fall off while driving any day!!!) and one of the Recalls on a.....150,000....2010" Dodge Truck's is a Recall For......Faulty Rear Axle's!!!......

Just because G.M. has had Recall's and Received a Bailout and Ford didn't...........has nothing to do with the way G.M and Ford Builds their Vehicles......:neutral: .......As I mentioned above.......All new Vehicles have some Problems.......with that being said, it now comes down to How Each Vehicle Co.....Chevy....Dodge.....Ford....Handles/Deals with the Problems and the Recalls for their Customer's,

The Cars/Trucks back in the 50"s....60's.....70's were very Simple for the Most Part, but they most likely Had Recalls just like we do today.....and they didn't have a lot of the Features and the
New Technological (Computer's) that are now installed on the Vehicles Today........

I agree with this every car will have problems.

yes i had it as well on my 1500. if you are really unhappy the dealer will change it out under warranty but you could always do a mod and replace the emblem with a black on and I have even seen a black sticker to cover the emblem. if my 2011 2500 hd has this happen I will buy a black one.
hey there is even a thread on blacking it out!

Yes I did Tricia thx for asking, took pix & emailed the owner (I worked for him part time 10 yrs ago), said he'd ck stock & hit me back when he knew they had it, my wife could bring it over & they'd change out while she waited. I would think they'd either change vendor or give them a whack in the head, the '07 HHR did it (replacement was fine) & a '10 vehicle is still doing the same thing.
