  1. I used to have the same issue, took it to the dealer with no luck. I tried the following and its been working ever since. Go to your home screen on Mylink. Click and hold on any icon as if you're going to move it. Once the option to move come up, move the projection (carplay/android auto) icon onto your favorites at the top of your screen. Once it is there, you should be able to access the carplay from the radio screen. I've ran into the issue that the carplay logo comes up, but i can not access it from the main screen for some strange reason. So i will go into my Nav screen or Radio. Then i click on the carplay favorite icon and it comes right up. And works fine after that. Dealer could never duplicate my concern, as always.
  2. Looks like dealers are starting to get some 2019's already! https://www.bachmanchevrolet.com/VehicleSearchResults?search=new&model=Silverado 1500&year=2019
  3. Already got myself a policy as I always do for the days I will be down there, thanks for the heads up though! Went to the dealer and got an oil change, they checked the brakes as part of the muli-point inspection...looks like everything is good to go!
  4. Might be bringing this one back to life, didn't want to start a new thread... Anyone else transferred old tonneau covers (2007-2013) to a 2014+ crew cab short box? I purchased a used Roll n Lock of Offer Up and the guy supposedly had it on a 2014+, but when I contacted Roll N Lock to purchase missing parts, they identified that it was for a 2007-2013 truck and it will not fit...a little bummed out if that's the case...
  5. I imagine that is what happened, I had actually just returned that day from my part of the country to my finances city...mine is nothing but dirt roads, I assume they got caked in dirt and mud and sad, hopped onto the toll roads with nothing but hills and braked like crazy and ended up burning them out.
  6. It is not as bad as the media makes it seem like...I have traveled down there multiple times, drive at night, etc. and luckily have not encountered any issues. I am more afraid to drive around late at night here in the US in bad parts of town than i am over there...
  7. As the title might suggest I am planning on taking a trip down Mexico for parent's anniversary. Reason for my question comes from a previous trip. I went down there Dec 2016 in my '15 Sierra, and lets just say I had to get my brakes changed down there at a little corner shop. My rotors were all ridged up and I figured lets be safe than sorry. Mind you, before I left, i had 27K miles or so, and had a Chevrolet dealer just do a $20 brake check, all came back fine. When I got back, I took my busted up brake pads to a GMC dealer and they did an entire brake job, changed the Mexican pads out, new rotors, updated caliper bolts, new calipers...free of charge, still under warranty. But they did not give me much information as to what might have caused the issue. I now have a '17 Silverado with just about 12k miles and had it since new, should I get a brake check done before the trip or it'll be a waste for the mileage? Should I just assume the brakes were defective? Any tips to maybe prevent the issue if it was not a defect? Maybe take the wheels off when I arrive and power wash the components and get rid of any foreign objects...just thinking out loud here, any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
  8. I was doing some digging around and found on GM's order guide site that there will be a Limited Silverado/Sierra Double Cab for 2019. Just wanted to throw it out there. https://www.gmfleetorderguide.com/NASApp/domestic/proddesc.jsp?year=2019&butID=1&regionID=1&divisionID=1&vehicleID=21425&type=0#
  9. Mysterious water leak

    See the link below...I had the same issue on my 2015 Sierra about 2,000 miles out of warranty and GM refused to fix it...wanted about $1,000 to repair it. I ended up trading in the truck due to continuous issues with it. http://sandyblogs.com/techlink/?p=4938
  10. My 2015 Sierra had that same exact issue...dealer also could "not" find anything wrong with it. At one point they even changed out the thermostat? Thinking that would address the issue. They knew there was an issue, otherwise why change the thermostat? But at the end, that dealer just chased me away telling me "you still have warranty, just drive the thing until something breaks."
  11. A new beginning...

    Thanks! I was seriously considering jumping ship....but I did not like anything else...I know they are the same truck, but GMC and their dealer disappointed me.
  12. Is Waxing Necessary?

    You might want to consider a ceramic coating....have not gotten one myself, but the results I've seen from my local detailer has made me consider one...
  13. A new beginning...

    Lesson learned the hard way...funny, that Monday after the new purchase, I went to my GMC selling dealer to start the process of the refund on an extended warranty and my salesman saw me and said "you got that?" and I told him "yeah I traded in that piece of junk you sold me"
  14. A new beginning...

    No, never giving my business to that dealer again...gave me hell with my GMC...i actually drove 200+miles to get my new truck. The leak appeared to come from the front passenger area...the "fix" was to replace a "warped" windshield inlet grille. I call BS on that since my mom has a 09 Traverse that is pretty warped and has never leaked.
