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.

2015 Corvette Z06 priced to sell at $78,995

Chevrolet will price the 2015 Corvette Z06 Coupe at $78,995 and the convertible at $83,995. Laying claim as the fastest and most powerful Corvette ever built, the Z06 has a supercharged 6.2L LT4 engine producing 650-horsepower. That's more horsepower than was spec'd the sixth-generation ZR1, which only had 630. Considering the ZR1 cost north of $110k, a sub-$80,000 Z06 sounds like a bargain.

Hey guys, so I noticed my iPod on my iPhone 5 with iOS 8 recently added doesn't work. I Can click on a song from the heads up screen but it won't play. If I manage to get one to play, it says artist info is unknown and won't continue playing the song after. Anyone else having this issue? I did have a couple episodes prior to iOS 8 which the artist info wouldn't come up to but now it's mich worse. Thanks

5.3L Idle Vibration/Rough Idle Surge

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Yesterday, 09:51 PM
Hey all, I read some of the idle vibration posts on here and the threads are relatively old and I posted in them and didn't receive a response so I figured I'd start a new one and see if anyone is having similar issues. When I first got my 2014 Sierra I was pleasantly surprised how smooth it was at idle compared to my 2013. Now it has developed an intermittent idle vibration where it only used to happen before it reached operating temp, now it happens once it's reached operating temp too. If I rev the engine and let the rpms come back down once it comes back to about 700 rpms down to 500 or so it feels like it is surging and stumbling and then settles back down. Sometimes at 500 rpms it feels like it is missing but other times it's just fine and smooth. Rpms don't seem to change when the "surging or missing" feeling happens and I have not had any check engine lights yet. I haven't filled up with fuel in 2 weeks or so and it didn't seem to be doing it last week or I wasn't paying too much attention to it. Should I try premium fuel and see if it helps? Any ideas? Is this the way these engines are? Thanks in advance for any help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Air ride

Ask the GM Technician Yesterday, 08:49 PM
I have a 2006 yukon xl Denali with auto ride. I replaced the rear shocks with rebuilt oem parts last year. When I put a trailer on the yukon, the rear end sags. Is there a way to check the compressor to see if it is bad or good? The fuse in the fuse block it good. Haven't check if it has power to it. What color is the wire at the compressor? Last winter there was a code to check auto ride. I pulled all connetions and cleaned them. Code went away. Thanks for the help.

Steering wheel emblem

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Yesterday, 08:16 PM
Since I have the exterior emblems on my '14 color matched I was thinking about the steering wheel emblem. Is there an easy way that also looks good to color match the steering wheel emblem? I would just do the gold insert portion and keep the chrome trim (like the tailgate emblem).   I was thinking to just buy a small piece of vinyl like used for decals and place it on the emblem and just carefully trim the vinyl with a razor blade. If I go this route, what would be the best way to get it to go into the small indentions as I'm first applying it to keep the same texture?   The only other way I can think of would be to paint it, but that would mean I'd have to remove it and I don't want to do that unless that would be the only way to make it look good.   I know it's a small detail but I like the small details.

Bluetooth issues after iOS 8 upgrade

I have a '14 Silverado crew cab and I recently upgraded my iPhone 5 to the new iOS 8 software for my iPhone. But since the upgrade I've noticed my phone disconnecting and reconnecting randomly for some reason. If I had to guess I would say in a 15 minute drive it will disconnect and reconnect 3-5 times.

Swap 2014 SLE Headlights for SLT w/ LEDs?

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 19 Sep 2013
So I bought a 2014 Sierra SLE but I had it worked into my deal to have the headlights swapped for the SLT version with LEDs. And by the way, the entire harness under the hood has to be swapped also if you are thinking of doing this.   My question is to the guys with the headlights w/ LEDs . Can you give me the break down of when the LEDs are on? From what I'm seeing on mine the upper and lower LEDs come on with the parking lights and also when the projector lamps are on. For some reason I thought the LEDs also took the place of the daytime running lights. Where as my projector low beam currently still acts as daytime just like the SLE headlights. I thought it was the lower LEDs for daytime.?   Thanks!

do i still have the v4 mode with a basic 2WT

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 05 Sep 2014
my truck is the basic WT with chrome package or 2WT and its got the small credit card sized screen on the instruments with the little trip meter stick to select through the menu.   nothing anywhere says v8 or v4 so is the v4 mode part of my truck or not? I would think if it was I would have some sort of indicator for it even with the most basic screen options.   all it is is a 2WT with 5.3L v8 and towing package and no other add-on options   all the engine info I get is my average mileage but nothing about trip mileage or last 25 or 50 mile best thing like I see on the rental truck

Vibration and Coolant Smell

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins Yesterday, 11:52 AM
Hi guys! New issues popping up lately. First of which is the coolant smell after shutting the truck off and walking around the front, after a trip(distance doesn't matter as long as the truck gets up to temp). I have found no visual evidence of leaks, which worries me. Coolant reservoir was full and just above the HOT line. I can only smell it every so often, it's not everyday or every trip. Second issue, started this morning. At ~60%+ acceleration an odd vibration is coming from under the truck. If I had to guess, I'd say it was around the rear driveshaft area. It almost sounds like a groaning or a binding noise. The noise first occurred when backing out a driveway this morning while slightly turning. Now it's under acceleration as described above, when merging into highway traffic or overtaking a car, or taking off from a light hard. The vibration is not the same as the 75mph vibration, which the truck already has on occasion. I'm going to drive another day or so to gather a bit more "data" on when the vibration occurs and where it might come from, as well as a visual inspection underneath it. Also MPG have fallen about 1-1.5MPG(17.5 to 16.1) as of late. Temps are falling, but it's not that cold out yet. Anyone ever had...
