  1. Nice camera option! I suck at judging the front end while parking! I usually back into parking spots! This would be very helpful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I also have been using top tier 89 since new. Am I wasting my money? Is there any benefit vs 87? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Is the 5.3 actually designed to run 87? That’s a good question.They say 87 minimum or higher in the manual. Some manufacturers will say this just so potential buyers aren’t scared off by the higher priced gasoline requirement. I would like to know which grade is actually best for this engine.

  4. In my experience of my first 10k miles, it’s all about the speed. I travel the same 26 mile stretch of highway every day to work. The terrain has hills and valleys. When traveling 60/65,I was around 20 mpg..The same route traveling 75/80, mileage drops to around 16.5 mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Wait a minute.. you already took the truck you just bought to a Toyota dealer to see the trade in value? Why would you do that? Sounds like you’re not 100% happy with your purchase. As stated they make it up on the new vehicle. It’s simple car wheeling and dealing. The more they give you for trade, the less they discount the new truck. Did they give you final price on the new truck with the trade? If not, the 32.5 number doesn’t mean anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes, you are correct. In some circumstances they do have a sub... DC with bucket seats/console get a 7 speaker Bose (6+sub). DC with bench seats get 6 speaker system (no sub)
  7. My 2017 LT 1500 midnight DC had an msrp of $51.2, I paid $41.8.. Probably not the best deal in the world, but I was happy with it and it was right in line with the pricing at all dealerships around Boston. That was mid year, I'm sure I could do a bit better on a 2017 now. At just under 10k miles now, I'm very happy with it. I really wanted an LTZ but the discounts were only coming in at around $5/6k off msrp vs almost $10k off an LT. I wasn't shopping for a midnight edition in particular, but it was the only LT on the lot that had everything I wanted (and then some) including heated leather, Bose, power rear window, homelink remote, 8" mylink with nav/CarPlay, remote start, factory spray in bedliner, tow package, adjustable pedals, blah, blah, blah.. I also negotiated $800 OEM black rectangular running boards into the deal. Plus I got $8k for my 2008 Tacoma AC 4x4 with 180k miles on it. So it was around $33.8 with trade, not including tax.
  8. Call GM or ask the dealer to get you one. The child seat supplement was a 'recall' on my truck. At my first service visit, the dealer threw a hastily stapled hand made supplement in my glovebox. A few weeks later, I got the proper supplement in the mail from GM.
  9. I am alone in my truck 99% of the time so I opted for the DC with the standard bed. CC standard beds are hard to find so choices are limited. Plus they can be a pain in the ass to park. I'd rather have a loaded up DC SLT with a longer bed than an SLE CC with an empty back seat 99% of the time and a short bed.
  10. No button on the mirror? I thought ALL GM vehicles had it regardless of trim level. Go online and chat with On Star.. They'll tell you your options.
  11. Someone posted a pic of one on a dealer lot about 10 days ago, so yes, they are being delivered to dealerships. There are pics of it toward the end of the attached thread.
  12. I have a 2017 Silverado LT Z71 (Midnight edition), and YES, it came with a paper owner's manual in the glovebox along with a couple of other manuals. You should have gotten one. (in a ziplock bag!) Did you get a funnel for the capless fuel tank? That was in the glovebox as well.
  13. Yes the fix came out last August I believe. I still need to get this done. It’s annoying as hell. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. On Star is a joke...

    I suppose if you’re in a ditch on the roof unconscious , OnStar emergency could be a life saver for sure. That being said, I let mine expire. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
