First Drive: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado & GMC Canyon

Let’s be blunt. The state of the midsize pickup market has been pretty sad lately. Until a week ago, only the decade old Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier remained available for buyers to choose from.  Have you been inside one of them lately? A general lack of features, refinement, technology, and comfort peg each as behind the times. There’s no wonder this segment of truck has floundered in the US over recent years as customers fled to crossovers.
 
Thankfully General Motors is shaking things up by reintroducing the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. Reinvented, these trucks are bigger, more powerful, and have more features. We’re fresh from our first stint behind the wheel and here’s what we think.

Buick is expanding a fundraising opportunity it is offering to local schools. "Drive for Your Students" is a test drive initiative that pairs local dealerships with local high schools. The premise is pretty simple. The High School host the event, students work it, and Buick provides the cars. The school earns $10 per test drive for the first 100 drives. After that the donation doubles, to $20, up to $10,000 in total.

Cleaning, waxing and using a paint sealer on my new truck

Vehicle Appearance, Care, & Maintenance Today, 06:19 AM
When I picked up my new truck I decided to give the new truck a good wax job, but the hood especially felt a little rough - kind of gritty - anyway, not glass smooth. So, the first thing I did was clay the hood. What a change - the hood was as smooth as glass after claying - and it is so easy - much easier than waxing. A little research found that wax is only good for about 6 to 8 weeks and then needs to be waxed again (I suspect that is if you want a deep shine as the wax still beads water after 8 weeks so it probably is still protecting the paint).   But I read about paint sealing and it's suppose to last from 6 to 8 months - a big difference - and the sealer is suppose to be easier than waxing also.   But, my questions is - do you apply the paint sealer over the existing wax or do I need to remove the wax before I seal the paint?

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 04:11 AM
I've read many of you who had your 2014 trucks in for service were given a new truck as a loaner until yours is ready. Is this something the dealer has to do? I had my 2014 GMC Sierra Denali in for service and they gave a piece of junk. It's going in again for the frame rust which takes 3 days. Just wondering...   Thank you in advance

Leaf Spring Squeaks/Creeks-2014 1500

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 03:42 AM
'14 Sierra AT owner here.  One of my compaints about the truck is the intermittent bad creaking or squeaking sound I get from what is undoubtedly the rear leaf springs.  I have been under the truck many times and it seems to be two seaf springs rubbing together that is making the noise, spring pads are in place, makes no difference, can be real bad at times, and not bad at others, power washing helps for a day or so, wd40 or grease helps for a few days.  I have had it to the dealer, they have re-torqued things and said the noise went away, it did not! and they also say its not warrantied anymore cause of the 3" spring blocks back there.  But these have NO bearing on leaf springs making contact and terrible noise, the dang thing sounds 20 years old.    So, I'd like to know who else has this problem?  I know there are many  (I'm hoping this becomes a documented issue and a service bulletin is released) And how many of you have had the problem fixed?  Im at the point where I might take it back, might just try some more/different spring pads and cleaning/lube between leaf springs during next tire rotation ( I dont feel like I should have to do this on a new, warranteed truck but maybe it will be easier)   Thanks!

Help me decide

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 06:57 PM
So I found two trucks that I am trying to decide between.   Both are 2014 crew cab 4x4   A) has remote start, larger screen with backup camera, but without nav, 3.08 gears B) does not have remote start, smaller screen no camera, and 3.42 gears.   They are exactly the same price out the door   A) has 5K on it (owned by dealer mgr for a little while) and comes with an extra 12K/12 mo warranty b/c it is certified used. B) is brand new   I dont tow a lot, but do tow a 14' landscape trailer with anywhere from brush to furniture and plan to buy and 18' aluminum duck boat (~3K lbs).   Thoughts?

Shake or Vibration Issues

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 04 Aug 2013
I know this is going to look suspicious being only my third post but I wasn't sure what forum to join at first. I have noticed a shake or vibration in my new 4x4 crew 5.5 box 5.3 truck it seems to come and go and has been a pain to pin point what makes it happen. I can feel it in the steering wheel, seat and sometimes the gas petal but mostly in the steering wheel. It seems to be most noticeable going up or down hill with very light acceleration but can do it on level ground at cruise speed too. And the fun part is it doesn't always do it to make it more of a challenge to diagnose it. Brought it to the dealer last week and I thought the mechanic was going to think I was crazy but he did feel it too which was a relief also the service writer test drove it after they balanced and rotated the tires and he said its slight, but he felt it too. We scheduled it to come in tomorrow and are opening a warranty claim. I have very little faith that its going to get fixed because of the nature of the vibration and it being so new that there probably isn't any info out there on what it could be. I really don't know what they can do tomorrow other then make phone calls. If I had to venture a guess I'm going to say its in the transmission or p...

Bluetooth bad with S4 but good with Droid max HD

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Yesterday, 11:06 PM
I'm on my second 2014 GM truck, first one no issues with the Bluetooth with droid X or later I got the S4. Second truck, S4 worked and sounded fine for a few months and then it started to sound staticky or gargly. You could really hear it when you would call someone while it would ring and when streaming music the first few notes of each song would do the same. also will happen multiple times while talking . It does it with full signal strength too. Today I got to use a buddy's Droid maxx HD to test it and it was perfect and talked the 20 minute ride home without a issue. I have re paired the S4 a few times and didn't help. I also have problems while streaming, sometimes it will work for a few songs and the next song it shows it playing but no sound. Other times it just stops after the song is done and won't play the next at all. A first I thought I was my truck but after today I'm thinking it's the S4. Anyone else having issues with the S4 like I'm having?
