Learned to drive and took my license test on an 83 Suburban Diesel. Shortly after had a short stint in an 85 Bronco. Then wasn't in a truck again until I bought my 04 Silverado. Sadly after nine years in that I totaled it and wasn't in a truck for 6 years until I just bought my 2018 a couple of months ago.
Just refinanced mine after making only 1 payment. I would have done it sooner, but needed the title before refinancing. The day the title came in the mail I finalized the refinance. I was also told to wait 3-4 payments by the dealership so they don't lose whatever incentive, but with the crazy 7.24% GM rate that's not my problem. I got a 2.74% rate through my credit union and don't feel bad in the slightest ditching the GM loan. I have near perfect credit and it's ridiculous the rates GM has just to get the incentive. Cut 2 more years off of the term, and plan to pay it off 2 years early so all good in my book.
I picked up a new 2018 LTZ Z71 a month ago for 14K off of MSRP. What closed the deal for me was when I was finding used 2017's with around 25K on them for the same price I paid. I finally got back into a truck after totaling my 04 6 years ago and can't believe I waited so long! Love the truck.

So how do you access it without pulling up the carpet etc? There is an access door that has a torx screw in it to open. Then it just pulls off and you have access to the battery.
FYI - the dealerships are starting to get them in, I picked up a PF63 yesterday. The only reason the parts guy had even ordered any was because I had asked about them.
Mobil1 now has the M1-212 listed for the 2011 Traverse. It's about an inch longer than the previous filter.
I crawled underneath and took a look at the label on the filter, it says "Replace w/PF48" so I guess I'll use the Wix Filter cross-referenced on the Amsoil site. From the top: From underneath:
Thanks for the info. I probably won't have to change the oil for the first time for at least a month, so hopefully it will become more widely available by then. Even better will be if there is an Amsoil equivalent by then.
jwhjr posted a topic in 2007-2016 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave, & Saturn OutlookI just picked up a 2011 Traverse for my wife yesterday, and in the manual it calls for a PF63 filter. I can't find any information on it (or any cross-reference to other filter brands). The previous filter used on these is the PF48. Anyone have one or changed oil on one that knows the scoop?
