I drive a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban and also have a cracked driveshaft. I was advised 2000 thru 2006 have the same drive shaft. I went to the Chevy Dealer but was advised there is no recall for the cracked drive shaft. Please advise

Do you drive a 2000 CHEVROLET SUBURBAN?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
