Took my '16 Sierra Crew Cab SLT 4x4 Z71, 5.3L, 8spd in for a certain amount of shudder while under light acceleration as well as some rough downshifts upon stoping and delayed engagement issues when shifting from park. This was my second visit. My first visit was a Transmission reflash. This did nothing. Drove it for two weeks and took it back yesterday. Today they found a bulletin released on 1/6/17 addressing a download/reflash for the transfer case. Now mind you at least once I found 4wd engaged even though neither I or the switch did it. They reprogrammed it. The first time it didn't take. The second time it did and I drove it home tonight. Thus far this seems to have worked. While the 8spd still drives like an 8spd, the upshifts are smoother and accelation is much better with no shudder. Ironically the GM of the dealer said his '17 Z71 Demo was doing the same thing and was next in line behind mine for this reflash/TSB. I didn't get the number of the TSB but 1/6/17 is the release date. Will drive for awhile and hope it continues to work. I love this truck but quite honestly last week I was ready to read it for a new F150 I was so disgusted with the way it drove. I had a '14 Silverado LTZ Z71 with the 5.3L and the 6spd and it was a great truck. No issues beyond the occasional clunk at a stop light. My '16 Yukon XL SLT with the 6spd has been flawless in its first 10k miles as well.
I replaced the SRA's on my '14 Silverado after 20,000 miles with a set of Michelin's and it transformed the truck. Ride was better, traction was awesome and oh so quiet. Now I have a '16 GMC and I'm back with the SRA's again. If I keep this one long enough (not liking the 8spd) I would do the Michelin's again.
Mine used to fit until I had to install a hurricane door. Robbed about 4" of space. My Yukon XL still fits sans hitch. I used old 4x8 election signs (3 of them) and tacked them to the back wall of the garage. Can idle right into them with no damage.
I just ditched my SRA's at 17,800 miles exact. Complete crap and down right dangerous in the rain. Put on a set of Michelin Defender LTX M/S in factory size (275-55-20). What a difference! Highly reccomend. Total cost right t $1000.
Prior to my 2014 Silverado I had several Fords, my last being a 2011 F150 Lariat 4x4 with the 5.0L V-8. Liked everything about the truck. Only issue was corrosion on the aluminum hood. Same problem I had on the previous trucks as well as two Expeditions. Came time for a new truck and the Chevy looked really good. I didn't want the last of that Ford body style and didn't want to wait to be the first year Guinea pig on the all aluminum F150, especially given the corrosion issues on my previous trucks. Thus far the Chevy has been such a good truck that I recently traded the corroding Expedition EL on a new Yukon XL for my wife.
I have a '16 XL SLT and have none of the aforementioned issues. Absolutely love the truck. Had prepared myself for it to be very similar to my '14 Silverado LTZ and was shocked in the improvements. I still love driving my truck but steal the XL from my wife every chance I get.
2011 F150 Lariat Supercrew 4x4 with the 5.0L V-8. I love my Silverado but not gonna lie, that Ford was also a damn good truck. No problems whatsoever.
So true on the paint! Just traded my '13 Expedition EL Limited on a '16 Yukon XL SLT. Pretty much black or summit white are no cost colors. I will say this.....I wish my '14 Silverado LTZ had more of what the Yukon has. The Intelilink on the Yukon for '16 has no lag and the Apple Carplay is the bomb. I also wish my '14 had the cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring. I also wish GM offered keyless start as they do on the SUV's. Rear air vents would also be nice. As far as the rest, I hated the power boards on my expedition and made sure I bought a Yukon without them. Long story short, if they would equip the top of the line trucks like the SUV's then the difference is just taste. I traded the Expedition for several reasons, the biggest being the aluminum hood and tailgate had corrosion issues. My dealer is great and was willing to fix them but who wants their two year old $50k SUV being repainted? I have to wonder how an all aluminum truck will be, especially in the coastal environment where I am. I have had my Silverado for the same amount of time and have no issues with the aluminum hood. Different process maybe?
Bought and installed and it works great. Only thing to note is the black finish wore off after washes and waxes. It is not pure copper. No loss of reception, and actually may have improved it some. http://www.cravenspeed.com/products/The-Stubby-Antenna.html
I trade a car just before it goes out of warranty. Over the years it's been more on age than mileage but not always. I take meticulous care of my cars, buy them right and always get excellent trade if I don't have someone who wants to buy it outright. I've never been upside down in any car. About every 4th car I actually cash out my equity at trade......especially since I haven't paid more than 2% on. Car loan in over 5 years.
i replaced the same size 20" tires on my '13 Expedition at about 7500 miles. The LTX's totally transformed that vehicle. I will be replacing the stock Goodyears on this truck when I get a few more miles out of them with the Michelin's. Actually looking forward to it.
