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.

This set of OEM outside mirrors was pulled from my new 2014 Silverado when I replaced them with some large towing mirrors. These only have a few miles on them and were carefully removed to keep them in mint condition. No scuffs or cracks.   These are the option DL8 - outside heated glass, power-adjustable, black (includes driver's side blind-spot spotter mirror).   I'll sell them as a set or individually. They come ready to install with the weather seal gasket.   For the set, I'll take $235 (includes shipping) For each individually, I'll take $125 (includes shipping).   They'll be shipping from Elmore, OH.   Thanks for looking!   Dean

2008 Sierra 1500 5.3 Lifter Failure. What Would You Do?

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 09:39 AM
I have 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 4X4 Crew Cab that has 148K miles on it. Currently it is sitting in the shop (local shop not dealership)  waiting to be repaired. It apparently has a lifter failure on cylinder 6.It is also intermittently generating a noise on the passenger side front drive train area. The quoted price for the  lifter repair is $2100. The mechanic could not get the truck to make the strange noise coming out of the passenger side drive train. So, I realistically have two issues with the truck that need to be resolved.   Here is what I am thinking: Pay the repair bill ($2100) for the lifter failure and drive it (also anticipating to repair what ever is going  on with the front drive train). Put a long block in it that has a 300K mileage warranty for $7500 and drive it for another 100k miles (also anticipating to repair what ever is going on with the front drive train). Save the money on repairs to put into the trade of  a truck for a newer model with fewer miles.   What would you do based on the information given, three scenarios listed above and why would you do it that way?   Side note: The past two GM trucks I have owned I put in excess of 300K miles and never went inside the motors...

Sorry if this has been covered but I'm not able to adequately search on my tablet. I'm trying to find the part numbers for the fog lights, mounts, wiring etc for my Tahoe. It has practically every option but fog lights. Seems ridiculous to me, so I want to add them.

Shake or Vibration Poll

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Today, 07:31 AM
Hope this works!   Edit: great it worked, as requested here is a shake/vibration poll. Edit: Shake I would say is definetly what I saw in some of those you tube videos with the glass of water. Some people may call that a vibration though. Others have a vibration that runs through the entire floorboard and the accelerator pedal but may not define that as a shake. I am just trying to mirror the original poster of the shake and vibration thread. I will never be able to please everyone, that's why I hesitated to do this poll.

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?

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...

Trivial annoyances about your truck

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 23 Sep 2014
OK, I know there's absolutely no perfect vehicle out there, so I thought some of you could post up the little things, if any, that annoy you about your truck. This does not include the subjects that have been beaten to death (vibes, seat, radio, ect). I'll start:   HVAC indicator lights for a/c, vent, ect. too small and dim, sometimes I have to squint to see their status.   With the tilt steering set where I like, the fuel, oil psi, amp, temp gauges are cut out of view by the top of the wheel.   ........and that's it, how about you?

Broke my driver side mirror ! :-(

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 16 Sep 2014
I was backing out of garage last night and paying too much attention to rear monitor instead of mirror and I hit the side of the garage door frame.  Not hard, but hard enough to fold my mirror and cause the central support shaft that holds the mirror to the motor to break.    Does anyone have a parts diagram and or parts vendor that can provide the parts to fix this?  My fear is that I have to buy a whole new mirror.  Since this is an SLT, it has heat, turn signal, autodim, motorization, folding, and puddle lights.  It has got to be an expensive part to replace.  And it is such a shame because it is such a little piece that is broken.    I PMed motomedic as well to see if he has any leads.  If anyone else has any ideas, I would appreciate it.  Thanks for your help!

Loaner vehicle from dealership...

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

Lowering a 4wd, what's the lowest I can go?

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Yesterday, 05:09 AM
Well I was trying to follow the thread on lowering and leveling, but it's gotten so confusing and hard to follow, that I figured I'd start my own. So as the title says I'm looking to lower my '14 Silverado Crew Cab LTZ 4wd. The only reason I got a 4wd is because I live in Wyoming and the winters can get pretty nasty. Also for the occasional boat ramp. So what's the lowest I'd be able to go and also what kit are you guys using? And if there are, who is making an air bag kit for these trucks? I'm also planning on running 24" wheels. Thanks for the help.
