    Yes we agree with you.
  3. Keys and noise

    They should bring this back. Worked awesome in my Dad’s 95.
  4. I tried that last night. Still happened but haven’t seen it happen since like 10pm last night so I got a good 14 hours of not seeing it and the battery was fully charged when I left for work this morning which I was worried about. My next step was to take the headlights fuse out for the night but think I’m ok right now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Prices paid

    It used to be an old trick to get you in the door. It’s probably too late now, ifs there’s a vin number in the ad and you find it, it yours. They’ll probably hide that truck for a while and say it’s sold. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 2500 to 1500?

    I've had some loads in the HD that the 1500 would of probably struggled with.....for instance, I loaded less than half of the bed in the 1500 with Pavers.....the HD would of done better job......plus all the process and sand for doing a walkway / patio just as one example
  7. i place mine against the front wall and then block them off with my totes. If I am only transporting tanks, so to get them filled, I use a rack made from pool noodles and rope near the gate.
  8. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6-25-2018 A new study by our friends at iSeeCars looks at which vehicles had the largest decline in retained value after three years. In the crossover category, the SRX is the top vehicle in this regard with a 47% reduction in value from its new car MSRP. The second best deal on a three-year-old crossover the study found was the three-year-old Buick Enclave which sells for just under 46% of its price new. iSeeCars.com analyzed more than 4.1 million car sales to identify which models had the greatest loss in value after three years. The BMW 5 Series was the top vehicle with an incredible 53% loss in valuation. Commenting on why the SRX and Enclave found their way to this list, iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly said, “The Cadillac SRX and the Buick Enclave, make the otherwise car-dominated list in the ninth and tenth spots making them attractive options for people interested in this booming vehicle segment. Trucks and truck-based SUVs are known for having the highest value retention, which explains why these vehicle types are absent from the top 10 list. Trucks as a vehicle category depreciate 23.3 percent in three years, which is two-thirds of the 35 percent average across all vehicle segments.” The SRX was replaced by the XT5 in Cadillac’s lineup. The name change may be helping push down the vehicle’s value. “Discontinued cars typically have lower resale values than cars still in production,” explained Ly.

  10. Child seats in Sierra CC

    Thanks for the pics. This helps a bunch. Looks like plenty of room.
  11. I know I’m talking about another manufacturer, but my wife’s Honda Odyssey is US made, and we’ve had all kinds of build quality issues with panels not aligning. I don’t think this is necessarily an American worker issue, but Honda slipping in general over the past 5-10 years. As for work ethic issues, I am amazed at how much kids are different even from when I was a kid. That’s another issue though, so sorry for bringing that up.
  12. Final week!!! Lets get our orders in!!
  13. Prices paid

    I called when they opened. They said it was a typo. They were asking $45,256. Idk how you mess it up that bad.
  14. 2019 Sierra and Silverado Motor Oil Weight Change ???

    I got 4 free oil changes at the dealer as part of the package when I bought my truck last June. I've used them all up and typically check the oil thru each cycle. I haven't noticed any significant loss of oil between changes & I usually go 12500km or so between changes. The dealer uses a synthetic blend 0w20.

  16. Today
  17. Hey all - new to the GM truck forum, but not entirely new to cars. Recently picked up a 2006 Chevrolet W/T with the 4.3 in it. Needed something basic for a home depot runner and lite towing. We recently took a trip across the state that was about 6 hours of highway driving. In the Georgia heat, AC was required. I noticed on the ride out there while running 70-80 the whole truck would shudder randomly and for about 10-15 seconds. I could hold the same speed and it wouldn't do it again. On the ride back it was a little cooler in the morning so we rode with the windows down, no AC. No shudder. As the morning went on we eventually rolled up the windows and kicked the air on. Instant shudder when it was engaged. We also noticed on the return trip that when the AC compressor kicked on (pretty sure it was that) there was a loud snap or click coming from the engine bay. I don't know if these compressors do that normally, or if its a sign that maybe the bearings are seizing up? I'm in the middle of a full ball joint replacement (these lower ball joint rivets are not fun), and the truck is 'down' for parts but am curious while I have the time if anyone knows of anything that could cause this shudder to occur? Thanks!
  18. Order guide for Sierra available 6/23/18

    They showed off a crew with a 6.2, that has to be a misprint. They also say the elevation is double cab only. That may be true, but we have seen crew/6.5' bed trucks with that combo. It's a slow dribble of info.

    Nope. My actual job is just 4kms from home.
  20. Center console swap?

    Not sure why that part # isn't working, but that is the driver side trim for the console. I would get ahold of Corbin @ gmpartsnow.com he can get everything that you will need. As far as the 10% discount I had everything add to my cart trying to decide to buy or not for a few days. After a few days I received an email with a 10% off. Hope this helps

    AT4 with 6.2 only available in double cab?! Am I reading that right? Guess I'll be passing on the AT4 and be getting a SLT crew cab instead. Must have a 6.2 under the hood.

  23. Keys and noise

    Took a piece of velcro and used the felt side to stick on the column and the shifter, no more noise and a $2 fix. It is black so you can't tell it is there on a black column. I much prefer a keyed ignition, keeping the key in the pocket is a no go and I don't carry a purse to keep them in. Tyler
  24. Last oil change I just started running 0w30. I tried 0w40 and while the oil analysis showed a very happy engine, fuel economy definitely dropped and you could notice the truck feeling more sluggish on cold mornings. The 6.2 in the vettes have always called for 0w30 or 5w30 and those motors are built the same. I'm glad to see GM smarten up!
  25. I did this the first winter I had the truck, but I found out it still turns itself on when wheel speed exceeds roughly 30 mph. That wheel speed is quite easy to achieve when having fun and when it engages mid slide/drift it puckers you up real quick. What I also found out is if you unplug a wheel speed sensor the system faults and turns itself off for good. To make this easy to do, I cut into the wiring harness and wired a switch into the dash. I call it my "fun button", when I hit the switch, the dash lights up, the door chime comes on, but then I can drift to my hearts content with zero intervention. Simply flick the switch back and everything goes back to normal! Just don't re-engage it while braking because it momentarily activates ABS and you lose braking for a split second haha
  26. 2500 to 1500?

    I doubt anyone will argue that a 1/2 ton and/or trailer will handle all household tasks. I don't question why people drive a 3/4 or 1 ton because I think they are a preferred daily driver for some. A 3/4 ton truck is my preferred rental when I travel. I love the feel, ride height and power! As KARNUT suggests, people are different. I went through cars, vans, suv's and sedans. I started driving with a pickup and will end with a pickup. When I win the lottery my DD will have 6.5' or 8' box on the back and require 8 lug nuts per wheel. This will be used to drive my 17 lb Pomeranian mix to the park.
