First Drive: 2015 Chevrolet Colorado & GMC Canyon

Sep 24 2014 01:44 PM | Zane in Reviews

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.

Paint Code/Match for underbody grey?

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 11:35 PM
The underbody (crawl under the truck and look up) is some sort of glossy grey color.   (I assume they are all the same in this regard).   If I wanted to touch up a few spots (not that it matters, just how I roll), how would I match it?   Is there some special GM paint I could purchase?    A paint code associated with it?    Or maybe the one of the two greys provided by Rustoleum is a close enough match?

remote door lock receiver change out

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 09:09 PM
I want to change my 1997 Silverado 2 door extended cab remote door lock receiver and up grade to the 2005 remote receiver as I am tired of having to be 10 feet or closer to the vehicle and sometimes the transmitter will not even work that close unless I turn around 3 time wiggle my butt and jump up and down and touch my nose 3 times even with a brand new battery in the transmitter. My Son's 2005 receiver on  his Impalla  works flawlessly from 40 or 50 feet every time. So I want to change out the antiquated remote door lock receiver to the 05 or newer. What is involved in changing the receiver other than maybe the plugs being different and of course having to have the transmitters for that particular unit. Has anyone tried to change out the receiver to the newer ones. I do know they are different because the transmitters cannot be interchange even with trying to program them, even though they transmit at the same frequency not sure why that is. Any Ideas would be appreciated. In my mind {you know how that goes} A receiver is just a remote receiver that receives the transmitted signal to close a switch and activate the door lock actuators, so seems that any receiver would work but........... Any help or info. is much ap...

6 speed abuse

Transmission, Suspension, Transfer Case, & Axles Yesterday, 09:05 PM
Just how much abuse can the GM 6 speed transmissions in the 08 and up half tons take?   I have a Diablo Trinity 1000, but all I have done so far is disable the AFM. Is it ok to install the full tune that has torque management disabled? I was reading a few other forums last night that indicated these tranny's act weird when you change the programming or remove torque management.   My plan is to go up to 33 inch tires. I still want to be able to walk on er once in a while. Do you think the 6 speed can handle 33's and a little extra HP for the long term? I don't want to spend big dollars outfitting the truck only to find out the transmission can't take a little extra power with 1.4 inch bigger tires than stock.

Adding Aftermarket Sub/Amp

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 03 Sep 2013
I did this upgrade awhile back, but have been really busy and never got around to posting. I know there's already a topic on the K2's Bose system, but that one discusses models with the bench seats. My upgrade was done on an SLT with bucket seats and factory Bose sub under the center console. Selected pics are posted at the end.     After removing the center console, I discovered the Bose sub (it's only 6") but not the Bose amp. I guessed it was somewhere buried behind the dash, so I decided to simply hook up a Hi/Lo Signal Converter to the Bose sub's input lines to save some time/effort. It provided a very clean, strong signal but is only suitable for adding an aftermarket sub, since the signal to the Bose sub is low freq only. If you choose to do this, the blue wire is "+" and the gray wire is "-".   After running all my wiring under the carper and re-installing the center console, I moved on the mounting my amp. Removed the rear seats and discovered... the Bose amp mounted to the rear wall of the truck. If you look under the center of the seat, you'll see swiss-cheese-holes in the insulation. The amp is just up and left of those openings. I don't have any info on the K2's amp wiring but I'm sure eventually PAC...

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...

Have u filed with BBB Autoline about ur 2104 Sierra/Silverado?

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 05 Oct 2014
If you have had a problem with your 2014 Silverado/Sierra and couldnt get GM to resolve it, did you file with BBB Autoline for arbitration?   If so, did they help resolve your issues with GM? If yes, did you go to an arbitration hearing or did it get resolved before that point? Was your selling dealer involved in the resolution?   If you lost your BBB case against GM, did you proceed anyway and file lemon law? If yes, what was the lemon lawsuit outcome?   Do you have any thoughts about your BBB experience or lemon law experience with GM that may help someone else about to go through the same process?   Thanks for any info.   Edit, add BBB Autoline link http://www.bbb.org/c...-lines-process/

I too am having the vibration issues in my 2014 Silverado. I have been to the dealer and gotten no where.  So I thought I would start a thread for anyone who has been able to get it fixed. So if there is anyone out there who has had the vibration issues and had it fixed, please post on here what happened and how it was fixed.  Please no complates about the problem, we already have a thread for that.  Just fixes.
