  1. It takes less than a second to turn it off. Why spend money and install a device to turn it off? Just me. I really don't care what other people do. I tried using it in my city and it worked OK but when I got into Houston bumper to bumper traffic I was uncomfortable with the engine turning itself off so I just pushed the button. Now I don't use it at all. I just press the button when I start up.
  2. I rewired my Homelink in my 2020 Silverado because I didn't want it hot all the time. I posted all about it and you can probably do a search and find it. I bought the truck in December 2019 and did the rewire a couple of months later. Now my Homelink is powered by RAP and goes off when you kill the engine and open the door. I use it to open two garage doors.
  3. Should be able to get a good deal right now. A lot of buyers are holding off thinking about being employed. Let us know what you get!
  4. Yeah, I agree. When I was looking for a 2020 Silverado I spotted mine and didn't notice it was a four cylinder. All the others were 5.3. I went back to the dealer and requested a test drive and fell in love with it. It was so much improved over my 2014 Silverado. The salesman told me he could tell that I didn't realize it was a four cylinder. I hadn't. I then read the sticker and saw it. I was shocked. If I had noticed that before the drive I would have walked away but after I drove it I was in love with it. Made an offer and now it's mine. I'm really happy with it. If you are looking for a new truck be sure to test drive the 2.7T. I'm pretty sure you will like it.
  5. Good luck on your purchase, whatever you get! Nothing like a new truck!
  6. I traded in my 2014 Silverado with a 5.3 on the 2020. I paid right around 15,000 difference so it comes to about 32,000 total price I think.. My 2020 is loaded with leather and everything. I got away from diesels back in 2014 after having them for 30 years.and the cost of oil and service is a whole lot cheaper for the gas engines. I do all my own service and it's a lot cleaner too! I change the oil when the computer tells me too. 6 quarts of 5W30 Dexos from Walmart. The filter is a pain to find but I think the 3.0 diesel engine uses the same one. Regular gas is a lot cheaper than diesel and the additive needed. One less thing to have to worry about is buying the diesel additive. Diesels served me well when I needed them but I don't need them anymore. Good luck!
  7. What do you know about a 2.7 that your opinion should be listened to? Do you own one?
  8. Have you guys noticed that anytime we 2.7T owners start talking about our truck some dude pops up telling us we should have got a diesel? What's up with that? If I had wanted a diesel I would have got one. I've had plenty of them and now I'm happy with my baby 4 banger. Especially when I have to do service. A whole lot cheaper!
  9. I've had my 2020 Silverado since Christmas. I think the 2.7T is a nice engine but I'm not getting mileage as good as I thought it would be. I recently took it on a 1000 mile road trip and got 20 mpg and a little better in traffic in Houston for three days. Around my local town I'm getting 18 and that's it. All in all I really like the truck . Plenty of get up ad go and I wouldn't be afraid to tow something either.
  10. I think lots of whisky would be the answer.
  11. Did that today. Hated it when the truck honked at me when my wife was in there with her keys in her purse.
  12. Just got back from my first 1000 mile road trip in my 2020 Silverado 1500 LT with the 2.7T engine. Pretty happy. I've made the same trip many times in my 2014 Silverado 1500 with the 5.3 so I have something to compare it to. 2020 is quieter and rides better. 2.7T is more robust than the 5.3 was and I am very happy with the 4 banger except for highway mileage. It barely got 20 mpg on Texas Interstate's at 77 mph where my old 5.3 got 21 and better. However, in heavy Houston bumper to bumper traffic for 3 days it got 21.7 compared to 14.5 in my old truck. These figures are done by hand so they are accurate. The DIC was pretty close too. I would buy a Tahoe with the 2.7T for my wife for city driving because it's got plenty of power and gets dang good city mileage. All in all I'm pretty happy with the truck. No problems as of yet with anything!
  13. I had the exact problem with an old Liftmaster opener without a learn button. I fought it for awhile and finally put in a new Genie and problem solved. Now I have 2 Genies and both are programmed with Homelink on my 2020 Silverado. Oh yeah, I park my truck outside so I rewired my Homelink in the truck so it's on a keyed switch. Don't want some fool breaking in my truck and opening my garage door and going in.
