  1. Cross border broker fees are charged to individuals who bring a vehicle across the border, they do not apply to auto manufacturers who transfer vehicles across the border in accordance with NAFTA.
  2. Due to NAFTA they do not pay any import tax, also GM has a direct line railway system from Mexico to the USA. I think they only have to pay Mexican employees $4.00 a day. So their savings and profits are huge when they build in Mexico and sell in the US.
  3. I guess it's partially the fault of consumers because we know this but we continue to buy!
  4. Why is it that you go to a GM dealership and trucks built in Mexico are the same price as trucks built in the USA? GM pays far less labor fees for trucks they build in Mexico so why don't customers see a difference in the price of a truck built in Mexico vs built in the USA?
  5. Neat little tool to check for a bad coil. https://www.amazon.com/OTC-6589-Electronic-Ignition-Tester/dp/B0050SFVO2 Diagnostic instructions. http://easyautodiagnostics.com/gm/4.8L-5.3L-6.0L/how-to-test-the-cop-coils-1
  6. Discontinued 19206447 (acdelco 748UU) replaced by GM 19351570 (acdelco 743J)
  7. The bed of the truck leaned one way or the other on most of the trucks I have owned. If it's just the bed, remove 3 bolts on the low side and add shims to level the bed. I recently did this on my 2012 Silverado.
  8. 2012 Silverado 5.3L (LC9) can someone tell me which AC/Delco spark plug wire set I need if my coil is Delphi 12573190
  9. Thanks for more info on this, I was going to change mine today and when I took everything apart I realized that I will have to retrofit an access door.
  10. Here is some good info for those of you wanting to install a cabin air filter. Problem: GM built over five million full-size pickup trucks and SUVs from 2007 to 2014 with a cavity for cabin air filters, but with no CAF installed. Why? It is impossible to access the under-dash cavity without bending the filter around the transmission bellhousing. Unfortunately, bending a traditional CAF cracks and tears its frame, allowing ingress of pollen, bacteria, dirt, soot and other airborne contaminants and rendering the filter ineffective. Solution: AirSepts new GM Truck Cabin Air Filter features a segmented frame that bends to go around obstacles, then straightens as the technician inserts it in the CAF opening. Can be purchased at autozone Manufactures web address http://www.airsept.com/Products/Details/24 Retrofit kit with pictures http://www.performancetrucks.net/forums/technical-write-ups-201/gmt-800-900-cabin-air-filter-retro-kit-gm-oem-parts-533295/
  11. Call this Canadian dealership they can probably help, ask for the parts dept. MACMASTER PARTS CENTER 1 (866) 980-9413 http://www.macmastergm.com/macmaster-parts-department.htm
  12. Good information from Steve Lehto for anybody wanting to learn more about lemon laws. https://soundcloud.com/stevelehto/lehtos-law-ep-1-lemon-law-overview http://lehtoslaw.com
  13. It's the DMA (District Manager After-Sales). They are the local decision makers on buy backs and trade assistance, they are given a budget to pacify aggravated customers in their district. Sometimes they offer buy back and other times they offer trade assistance. If they offer trade assistance it is used to help offset the depreciation of your vehicle towards another GM vehicle. The average customer doesn't get to talk directly to the DMA, normally the dealership Service Manager communicates directly with the DMA and relays the info to the customer. If the DMA offers you a deal and you accept then a GM corporate repurchase coordinator will contact you directly and provide assistance through the entire process. Good luck!!
