I bought a car out of state and brought it to CA. jl449 hit in on the head - dealership should do the DMV paperwork (good news: you'll probably pay the CA sales tax at the out of state dealer, I think it wasn't always this way, but is now). I had to call my dealer a few times the closer it got to the temp plates expiring (they can also email you new temp plates if the CA plates don't show up in time). If you're new to CA and pickups, you'll need the weight cert because its getting classified as a commercial truck (bad news: you pay more on the registration every year, only upside is you get to park in commercial parking zones in cities). You can get around this with a permanent bed topper installed. For the CA VIN verification doc, I HIGHLY recommend going to a 3rd party and paying to get this done unless your local DMV isn't a clown show and you have a day to kill.
I'm in a K2 Denali. My one and only problem with the T1 interior is that its basically the same design as the K2's with a few new things or changes. I see it as GM had years to come up with a top trim interior design knowing where the luxury pickup market was headed and when it came to it, they just mailed it in and made minor improvements instead. The interior is what you see 90% of the time, a little extra money there can go a long way on that perception. Here's hoping that after they release the T1 SUVs, they bring that interior (at least the dash) over to the top trim line T1 pickups as a midcycle referesh.
Here's how screwed up it is for me: 2015 (bought new) = No active OnStar plan being paid for, but can use app's key fob functions, can send directions to in dash nav, get monthly reports. Website says I have The Basic Plan until 2020 (5 years since purchase) 2016 (bought used in 2019) = Safety and Security Plan active and being paid for. Can NOT use the key fob features, cannot send directions to in dash nav, do get monthly reports. Website says besides Safety & Security, says I have Basic Plan through late 2020 (1.5 years since purchase? weird), and Connected Access through 2024 (5 years since purchase) 2018 (bought new) = No active OnStar plan being paid for, but can use app's key fob functions, can send directions to in dash nav, do NOT get monthly reports. Website says I have The Basic Plan until 2023 (5 years since purchase) What kills me is that I can pay $$ for the safety & security package but not get key fob actions on app, but on the 2 cars I am paying nothing on, app functions are active. Seems like inconsistencies on their part. I would call but fear there is something goofed on the 2015 and 2018 status and they would figure that out and shut off the active functions.
About ready to change the oil in the truck and want to use new ramps I have for another, lighter, vehicle and want to make sure the front of the truck doesn't exceed the ramp ratings. Anyone happen to know rough estimates of either the front end or individual corner weights? 1500 Crew Cab, Short Box 5.3L 4WD Thanks in advance
This happened to me a week or 2 ago - I uninstalled the app, reinstalled it from the Google Play Store and signed in with my OnStar account and everything was all good. I have the Security plan with OnStar.
