  1. That is a good looking Tundra, by far the most reliable truck on the market. I took my 21' AT4 to CarMax and they offered me more than I paid for it, so it was an easy decision to dump it right away. Hopefully GM gets this problem figured out, they have a winning combo with the 3.0 Duramax and the 10 speed trans. But for now, it's not my problem anymore!
  2. GM has just stopped production of the 3.0 Duramax. They say it’s due to a supplier shortage. I call BS, they stopped production to figure out what’s going on with these engines. https://tfltruck.com/2021/08/breaking-news-gm-is-stopping-production-of-the-3-0-liter-duramax-diesel-i6-engine-due-to-a-sudden-supplier-shortage/
  3. Hello all, its been awhile since I have visited this site. Anyway, I am back and I currently own a 2021 Sierra 1500 AT4 (3.0 Duramax). Let me just say, I bought F150's for the last 8 years and this truck is absolutely amazing. The 3.0 Duramax with the 10 speed transmission drives and shifts so smooth. GMC knocked it out of the park with this combo. Now to the bad news, I too am having starting problems like everyone else. I purchased my truck in March of 2021 and it's build date was also in March of 2021. It was built in Mexico based of the VIN. I have had the no start problem 3 times since I purchased the truck. The first two happened before I hit 1000 miles and the third one happened yesterday (8/6/21) at about 5300 miles. I have not taken it to the dealer, because based off reading these posts and prior knowledge of how a service departments work, I knew there would be no reason. If they can't duplicate it, or get a "Code" then it's pretty much useless to take it to the dealer. So after yesterdays (8/6/21) no start incident, I decided to contact GMC via their Customer Service Text Chat line this morning (8/7/21). I basically only wanted to let them know, my truck was having the no start issue like many others here and across the country, even Canada. While chatting with the GMC rep, they stated that On-Star was showing my truck threw Code P0234 yesterday, even though I did not receive a check engine light. I don't know if that will cause the vehicle not to start, but it might help us in figuring this no start problem out! According to Google, P0234 is a Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0234 stands for “Turbocharger/Supercharger “A” Overboost Condition.” It is logged once your vehicle's powertrain control module (PCM) perceives that the boost pressure in the forced induction system is too high or beyond the manufacturer-specified limit.
  4. I test drove a Ram 1500 Ecodiesel yesterday. I have to be honest I would love for my 14' Sierra to get 28+ mpg but I just don't like the looks of the new Ram. Kinda fugly looking IMO!!! Oh yeah, the sticker was almost 50k... Yikes!!!
  5. Did you use a relay harness? If you didn't this exactly what I bought for my 14' Sierra SLE. http://www.amazon.com/Zenex-Single-Beam-Relay-Harness/dp/B00GEIIPY0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406462353&sr=8-1&keywords=hid+relay+harness
  6. Or how about a 2016 GMC Canyon with the 2.8L Duramax... I will definitely test drive one when they arrive at dealerships next fall or winter!!!
  7. The fact is EVERY vehicle manufacturer has it's problems. Ford, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan and GM make good vehicles but they are not perfect. I have had my 14' Sierra for almost a year now with zero problems. I have taken it in for the recalls but nothing wrong was ever found. My work vehicle is a 2014 Ford Taurus AWD with the 3.5 ecoboost and I must say that thing can move, although it only averages 17.5 mpg overall. This is my second Sierra and I will more than likely buy another one within 5 years (hopefully there will be a diesel option available for the 1500's). Anyway welcome to the club, you will find almost anything you need to know here with all the knowledge on this forum. CJ
  8. Don't forget the "Cylinder deactivation" which takes it down to 1 cylinder!!!
  9. Very nice... I am a Sierra fan, but if I were to buy a Silverado that would be the exact model I would buy. I think those are the best looking wheels the Silverado has to offer!!!
  10. Thank you, I kinda figured that's where it would be but just had to make sure. I ordered the relay for my HID kit and thanks to everybody's information I should have everything I need and hopefully everything will go well when I install it.
  11. Your welcome... I like being the Guinea pig sometimes... It sounds very good as well!!!
