I have worked in auto plants for all my life as a construction worker, specifically the paint shops. Everyone here would absolutely freak out if they knew how many brand new cars and trucks are repaired/repainted before leaving the General Assembly building. Highly likely that your "baby" that you think is perfect and never abused was smacked around a bit before being released to the world. It is called the Paint Hospital and believe me that area is busier than a regular hospital during a pandemic. LOL. I understand the OP's feeling and I would probably walk if it was a no cost option on this deal too. Kind of like when you are in the restaurant and can see back in the kitchen area when they drop the pan of steak on the floor BAM but the cook picks it up real quick and keep cooking like nothing happened. (3 second rule) You simply cannot un-see that..........
I really appreciate everyone's input. I will probably end up just ordering a set of Michelin's and moving on. Right now I am dealing with Hail damage from a recent storm, adjuster was out today and estimated it at $2,500.00. Looking for the best PDR outfit in town right now...............sometimes it just feels like a new vehicle is more trouble than it is worth. Might be best to just "DRIVE A BEATER" Haha
Long periods of idle. Jack rabbit starts. Racing the neighbor in his Camaro LOL. Low tire pressure. Or as swath says pulling a trailer. Maybe a brake drag problem what is your brake wear percentage and is it dropping fast? Oh and what exhaust did you install my new Denali is pretty quiet and I am thinking about adding some rumble...............
Saw a weird thread earlier where it was put forth that certain devices (USB phone chargers etc) plugged into the charging ports can cause some strange electrical problems. It seemed to suggest that the most problems were with the cheaper versions of the plugin adapters. So I guess if this were mine I would unplug all charging cords etc and see if the issue goes away? Who knows with these rolling computers nowadays what can affect the electronics.....
Appreciate the update. Now my challenge is to get it to vibrate the seat just to make sure that it actually works DO NOT BE DRIVING UP TOO CLOSELY BESIDE ME Hahaha Just kidding I will make sure no one is around when I do the wild maneuver.
That is less sensitive than the 18 and back systems then. If you drifted outside your lane to a certain degree it would vibrate the seat on the side that you were drifting out of lane on and of course it would be trying to nudge the steering wheel. . I guess i have not drifted quickly enough yet to get the seat to vibrate LOL
Guys this does not make any sense, how could the floor liner being on the gas pedal cause the engine to turn over but not start? I intentionally pulled the factory floor liner out and tossed it back in on top of the gas pedal and mine starts, there has to be more to this? Is it just a coincidence and people are being told that is what it is maybe? The scenario of the floor liner just does not make sense!
Took the truck into the local Firestone tire shop they had a hard time getting the replacement tires and only came up with 2 replacement tires after two weeks. I was told that this Bridgestone Alenza 22" tire is a New design and hard to get? 1 out of 2 of the new ones was just a bad as the RR at 52 Road Force. They used the (1) "good" new one and got it and all others under 30 on the road force. It was an improvement but the truck still has a slight shake. I was told that this is the best it will ever be with these particular tires? I now will have to decide if I want to try a set of Michelins / put up with shaking and keep driving or sell the silly truck and just drive a 10 year old beater ride all the time........... First 55k takes it home! let me know who wants it......
Maybe there was a forklift incident with some stored parts? The warehouse team probably scooped all the modules up and repackaged them before upper management found out about the minor incident.............................
I only have a little over 600 miles on this 19 but I have noticed the same thing as the OP that the seat vibrate does not go off for the lane departure warning. It did vibrate the seat on both my 17 and 18 that had the driver alert system. I just assumed that it was turned off in the options menu, I will have to check on that tomorrow. Can some others that have the driver alert system comment on the 19 and up systems if they get a seat vibration when the lane assist feature engages?
Tried different volume levels but the Audio just sounds like a lot of wind noise? On the 8 spd transmissions I had 3 in a row 16 / 17 and 18 with the 6.2 16 had a harsh downshift occasionally/ 17 was a bit worse/ 18 only did it rarely. This 19 with the 10spd seems to upshift/downshift very smoothly, it is the best of the 4 trucks so far.
