  1. With heat and driving tires increase in pressure. Set them when cold and in the shade around 35 and it will heat up around 5 degrees give or take when driving, being in the sun and when the temp outside climbs. No worries, they can usually handle a whole lot more. Those tires appear to have a max inflation pressure of 44 psi (which is the max when cold). You are completely safe and have them set at the correct pressure. Tyler
  2. Fixed that for you so as to not mislead the public and newbies... Tyler
  3. Because they are the coolest looking AT tire, that is why. They are the highest priced but just average in performance... Tyler
  4. But much better then some are trying to make it sound... Honestly OP very few have the failure, let them fix it and move on. There are always going to be those few that have had something gone wrong and are in spite and try and make it sound like the failure rate is 50% and you will end up with junk and troubles blah blah blah as you are seeing in this thread. Truth is for as few of issues as you see on the forum this is a small percentage of the trucks out there so think how few of failures there are. Let them fix it and enjoy, you should be good to go, enjoy! Tyler
  5. When I saw the pic the first thing I thought was it looked nose high then I read your numbers and it is. I take it you don't haul or tow? Did you adjust your headlights down after the level? I added a rear block on mine to keep some rake for when towing and hauling, you can always add that to help. Tyler
  6. Huh, mine doesn't have a vibration, I don't know anyone that has had a vibration with those years of trucks and I have known or met quite a few with them. A small percentage actually had it which is why you have to take issues with a grain of salt, what might seem like a huge problem and you think more than half have them is usually in the low single digit percentage that actually have said issue. People just like to make mountains out of mole hills. Tyler
  7. Two post, to threads, both complaining about the same thing, you could have easily just continued the other thread instead of blowing up with another new one. Either way thanks for being a contributing member of these forums and informing everyone about what they already knew. There was a change made first of all with a TSB regarding it. Second, now your truck is worth 65k? Did it appreciate or what? Price your truck is worth (that isn't what you paid so don't lie) doesn't guarantee having a trouble free vehicle. Just because you spent more than guy buying a WT does that mean he should have problems and yours should be trouble free? You know the truck is based on a 25k truck right the bones of it are? If anything those basic trucks should be trouble free as they buy them to work and the box checker versions should be the ones that have trouble since they can afford it and aren't used for work; if we are using the price means no troubles theory... What exactly failed? If it was the condenser lines which was a problem with the trucks that was redesigned: "In October of 2014, GM informed technicians in a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB PIT5331) to replace the faulty line with a newly designed tube and to install a bracket (part #23264893) to minimize any flexing or movement." The condenser was also redesigned. So if it is the old one (which it isn't) there is a new one to replace it, if it is the new one (which it should be) there aren't a slew of failures and it is a rogue one out of warranty. You didn't even give them time to follow up with the dealer, GM or anything, you gave it one day. Did you follow up with any of the TSB's or the special coverage someone posted in your other complaint thread? Special Coverage Adjustment 17336 Air Conditioning Condenser (Combi-Cooler) Refrigerant Leak Copyright 2017 General Motors. All Rights Reserved. Page 1 of 7 Reference Number: N162080780 Release Date: July 2018 Revision: 04 Revision Description: This bulletin has been revised to include a labor time increase in the warranty information section and to remove the locally obtained parts information in the parts section. Please discard all copies of 17336-03. Attention: This special coverage applies ONLY to refrigerant leaks as fully described within the below service procedure. This special coverage ONLY applies to vehicles explicitly identified in the GM Vehicle Information System. Note that; transmission fluid/oil leaks at any location upon/in the combinational cooler, refrigerant leaks caused by; collision, stone/rock impingement, road debris, etc. are NOT covered by this special coverage program. Make Model Model Year RPO Description From To Cadillac Escalade 2015 2017 Escalade ESV Chevrolet Suburban Tahoe GMC Yukon Yukon XL Involved vehicles are identified on the Applicable Warranties section in GM Global Warranty Management system. This site should always be checked to confirm vehicle involvement prior to beginning any required inspections and/or repairs. Condition On some 2015-2017 model year Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL vehicles, may have a condition where thermal cycling on the combination transmission fluid/oil and AC condenser cooler creates a crack that may allow refrigerant to escape. This condition consequently may deactivate the AC system which may cause potential customer annoyance. Special Coverage Adjustment This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 5 years or 60,000 miles (100,000 km) for Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL and 6 years or 72,000 miles (116,000 km) for Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after October 6, 2017, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to October 6, 2017, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider. Vehicle owners or lessees who paid for repairs referenced in this Special Coverage (“Customers”) are eligible for reimbursement of their reasonable and customary expenses in accordance with the procedures specified below. The conditional right to reimbursement is provided by GM solely in the interest of customer satisfaction and is personal to Customers. Customers may not assign and GM does not consent to any assignment of any Customer’s right to submit reimbursement claims, or to receive reimbursement, or any other rights granted by this Special Coverage to any third party, including but not limited to service contract providers, and this Special Coverage is not intended to and does not confer any third party beneficiary, subrogation or contribution rights, or any other rights to reimbursement, against GM, whether in law, equity or otherwise, on any third parties. Correction Dealers are to inspect the air conditioning condenser and replace if necessary. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. Please go to another brand, I bet your laundry list of issues and complaint threads start much sooner. The grass isn't always greener. Anyways, don't let us know what happens, just get it fixed and sell the truck and move on and realize the world can't always be how you want it and sometimes stuff happens... Tyler
  8. Not possible, judging by some people's posts and rationing on here if you don't have a range or it tuned out you should have been through 4 sets of failed lifters and getting ready for a full on engine failure as AFM doesn't work right, makes the vehicle less dependable and doesn't save any gas, blasphemy! Would love to hear how that works. Flow almost always equals larger openings while filtering fine particles is almost always small openings. Is there some type of magic webbing in there that allows it to catch small particles with larger openings or small openings that allow the oil to flow freely? Does it require to be cleaned and sprayed with oil prior to use? Over the years I have learned to be weary of K&N claims... Tyler
  9. https://www.viamotors.com/electric-vehicles.html It is a plug in hybrid with a 35-40 mile range on electricity. Not bad, good range for most around town or to and from work on electricity alone. I am a fan of hybrid tech, especially plug in with some descent range on electricity. The fiances next car will most likely be the plug in hybrid Rav4. Errands and to and from work on electricity and then we can still take it on long road trips on gas. Tyler
  10. Did you pay full price for it? Usually when you spend more than $65k it becomes problem free so you should have spent a little more. You are out of warranty and fluke things happen. Some of the earlier models had issues with the AC line cracking and leaking and there was a revision out later with a new line and/or bracket. Search around and you should come across those. Sucks but not very common, maybe the dealer will work with you and offset some of the cost, if not take it to a different shop and see what they can do. Good luck, but there are people with 300k cars that also have issues, price doesn't determine level of problem free vehicles... Tyler
  11. Every option that we can think of, are you sure about that? Just want to make sure you don't get called out for making a claim like that and its missing some features like bed view camera, fuel economy package underseat rear storage or 120 outlets front and rear... Tyler
  12. Anytime I see a level or biggest tire thread I can pretty much guarantee it is that persons first post and they didn't try searching. Try looking through here: https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/forum/246-20192020-silverado-sierra-mods/ Or here: That will get you started with much more information than a few responses to your thread... Tyler
  13. Did you read one review and it happened to be one of the poor ones and just associate that with all reviews? Most of the reviews I have been seeing have been positive, very positive. For every bad review there are 4 or 5 positive ones. Even most of the mpg themed reviews, unless they are running 75+ in boost that is the only time I am seeing poor mpg, are positive it seems. The power of the motor gets the most recognition. Not bad in the Silverado, but it will shine in the Colorado and deem the 2.8 diesel irrelevant. The 3.0 is nice, but unless towing regularly lighter weights or just concerned with mpg on long highway jaunts it will still be the least picked kid in gym class. Then you have to weigh in all the other costs associated with that motor (trim level, engine option cost, financing, insurance, maintenance, fuel costs, etc) and it really becomes hard to justify unless long term well past 100k miles. Tyler
  14. I don't think you are following how the resale calculation is working. You are getting more of the 2.7 savings back, you saved $1,400 and versus the 5.3 and they are only docking you $1,100 versus the 5.3 which was $1,400 more. So the 5.3 isn't showing any docking of the 5.3 but only $1,100 on the 2.7, so it is actually $300 better in resale than the 5.3. Now if it showed +$1,700 when inputting the 5.3 and the $1,100 was a subtraction for the 2.7 the difference would be $2,800 ($1,100 + $1,700) but that is not the case you are saying. When they work out resale they start at a baseline and add and subtract based on options from a particular trim level, if it isn't adding for the 5.3 then that is the baseline motor they are using (probably because it is the volume seller). Either way there isn't a penalty getting the 2.7 when it comes time to trade in and a $1,000 out of $30k isn't much to worry about or should drive concern as you are saving that at the pump and in upfront costs, financing and insurance.
