    2017 Silverado LT All Star 4x4
  1. Had a 14 Sierra SLE and now 17 Silverado LT. neither lit
  2. This has been widely discussed but, the remote start will work only twice before it needs the key for the 3rd start. My truck starts when it is 90 deg in summer to -50 deg in winter. Only twice before the key needs to be used....
  3. My 14 sierra squeaked on bumps (speed bumps) from day 1. I bought my 17 Silverado and it didn't squeak until 3 months later. Don't know what it is, but it isn't balljoints in my case. Also curious...
  4. purchased the $20 unlimited from Onstar for the sole purpose of driving from Illinois to Alaska and listening to Pandora or xm. Worked flawlessly throughout Canada. Also surprised to find out that xm radio worked to almost the Alaska border before I lost signal over the horizon.
  5. 18.7 lifetime at 7823 miles. Bound to drop with warming it up with remote start now that winter is here. Similar to what I was getting in my 14 sierra 5.3 4x4.
  6. When I bought my 2014 Sierra, I thought my owner's manual and warranty packets were in a nice booklet pouch. You know, something better than the ziplock bag I got when I bought my 17 Silverado. Does GM not do that anymore or was my dealer just being cheap?
  7. My 17 LT has one in the glove box, and 2 in the center seat box, but I don't have the full length console.
  8. I just deleted apple's music app. If nothing else, I freed up a lot of space on my phone when it deleted 3000+ songs I had stored. We'll see if it worked later.
  9. I searched the Apple site and similar techie sites but cant find the answer. When I bring my iPhone 6 into my 17 Silverado, Apple music starts to play. I can see the lower banner on the phone, but the app is not open when I double click the home button. I have to open the app to close it and start Pandora or another source of music. I use Pandora most of the time, so I'd like for it to open instead of "music". Anybody else had this problem?
  10. Just completed a 4000 mile trip and averaged 24.* Lifetime average is 21.1, but I haven't towed yet in the 6300 miles.
  11. My 17 Silverado LT starts up in whatever mode I shut it off in. "Normal"
  12. Does anyone know how to make the iphone not ring when connected to the vehicle. It is very distracting to hear the phone ring in my pocket while it is ringing through the truck speakers, especially when the timing is off. sounds like an echo.
  13. I can see the next recall.....negative battery cable locktite
  14. I waited about a week to post a final report. All is well with the electrical system. Several short trips, bumpy roads and a highway trip later and still flawless. Still love my Sierra.
