But, my Chevy isn't any worse than my Tundra was, or my wife's Grand Cherokee. XM Turbo seems to be the worst, Lithium doesn't cut out nearly as much. I let my trial expire, and I still have most of the channels. I primarily use Pandora though.
Off Road will be better, but on road cornering will suffer a little bit. Truck should ride a little smoother.

I've owned vehicles from Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Jeep, Nissan, and Toyota. I've joined a bunch of forums. They all have one thing in common: Catch can threads. Going by that logic, every vehicle needs one. But, I'd wager that less than 1% of vehicles on the road have one.
yamaha0343 replied to 15 Z71's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I traded my 14 Tundra for my 2017 Z71. The Tundra is a good truck. The GM twins ride and drive a lot nicer though. I do miss that my wife hated driving my Tundra and never took it. Now she's racking up miles on my Chevy while I'm at work. Hopefully dropping XM radio helps with that. lol
My trial just expired this past week. I only know this because of the email bombardment. I just don't in 2017 see the value of keeping it in my truck. I refused to do the welcome call at the dealer. It's just a way for OnStar to get your card on file to autorenew.
