Have never had a oil burning problem and have never had to put oil in the motor between oil changes. Always changed the oil at 10% left on the dic. Always ran full synthetic oil.
1. I have put 3 quarts of oil in the motor over 6000 miles.
2. Two of the door handles are coming off.
3. The display on the radio didn't work when I picked up the truck from service. They said they didn't break it. They did work on it and reprogrammed the radio. They didn't charge me for that. I suspect that the door handles were broken when they were working on the radio as I saw my doors open and close a few times. I don't know if they were broken when I took the truck in because it was on the passenger side. Oh Well......
Took the truck to the dealer and they were going to do a pcv valve inspection for $115. They called back and said they were going to replace the valve cover with an updated one. It's supposed to correct the oil consumption issue. When I asked about the pcv inspection he said I don't think they looked at it yet. Went to pick up the truck and asked and he said it's ok. But I didn't pay for any pcv inspection. So they didn't look at it I guess. But after this oil consumption test proves that I am burning oil then they will want to test the pcv valve.
I doubt it works. This motor does not have cylinder deactivation. So now the oil consumption test. Which I suspect will show that the motor still burns oil.
I get to pay almost $200 per door handle to fix. I suspect they will break again and I still have two more handles that will probably break sometime.
The radio cost between $500 and $600 to replace.
Wonder what a ring and valve job is going to cost. I am assuming that GM won't help with that.
I have done all the maintenance per book and most of it early. I'm thinking that was a waste of money.
