Formerly the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Company, and often referred to as Chevy, Chevrolet is a GM (General Motors) automobile manufacturing division. The company was started back in 1911 by ousted General Motors founder William C. Durrant and Louis Chevrolet. In most automotive markets throughout the world, Chevrolet brand vehicles are sold. From medium-duty commercial trucks to subcompact automobiles, a wide range of vehicles are produced and sold in North America by Chevrolet.
Because the word Chevy and Chevrolet are so recognizable, numerous products by General Motors are frequently but mistakenly referred to as Chevy. The GM LS1 engine is an example of this as it is referred to, rather than a GM part, as a Chevrolet small-block engine.

The Ugly Side: Common Chevrolet Car Problems Encountered
Chevrolet has been responsible for the manufacturer of numerous cars through the years. Many of them ran well, but some experienced common issues. Some of those are listed here:
The transfer case four-wheel-drive powertrain in some sport utility vehicles experienced issues with the module and its calibration. At high speed gear engagement, it was insufficient. When in park, there was a possibility of vehicle role and, without warning, a crash.
Certain Chevrolet minivan conversions, vans, and trucks with Southern comfort-built running boards had problems with courtesy lights. That may not sound like such a big deal until you realize that a fire or melting of the running board could be caused by the overheating conditions possibly resulting from this malfunction.
A frontal airbag problem was responsible for a GM recall involving Buicks, Cadillacs, and numerous Chevrolets. The SDM (airbag sensing and diagnostic module) was malfunctioning. This ran the risk of front passenger and/or driver injury due to failure of deployment of seatbelt pre-tensioners or front
As an added note, you may recall advertisements by Chevrolet which promoted “reliability”. Reportedly, rather than actors, real people were part of this campaign. However, various problems arose involving vehicle years, makes, redesigning, and facelifts. Additionally, Chevy professed themselves to be more reliable than Ford, Honda, and Toyota – all of which challenged the claim’s accuracy. Also challenging the claims was Consumer World. They cited contradictions via studies done by Consumer Reports and JD Power.
