  1. I think lots of whisky would be the answer.
  2. Did that today. Hated it when the truck honked at me when my wife was in there with her keys in her purse.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. I went with the Truxedo Lo Pro for my 2020 Silverado. Had one on my 2014 Silverado and it was great so I stayed with it. I'm old and it took me about an hour to install it.
  6. Some of us old guys are happy with the little four banger just the way it is. If I want more power I'll just get in my 03 Corvette.
  7. I only buy new vehicles. I've been in quite a few different dealerships and the only time I hear about warranty problems is when some person brings a vehicle in for warranty and they have done major mods to it. Can't blame them I guess.
  8. I'm going to have to honk my horn on my 2020 Silverado to see if it's a sissy. If it is I will be changing it out pronto. I don't honk much but, by God, when I do I mean it and I want them to know it!
  9. I traded in my 2014 Silverado for a 2020 Silverado. There is a lot of differences. Much better ride, quieter and I am happy over all. I got the crew cab and it has the sliding back window. I've run it through the car wash several times already and mine doesn't leak at all. I give it a good inspection every time. I did what a lot of guys here frown on, I bought the 2.7T 4 cylinder. So far it's great. I don't pull a trailer anymore so I thought why not. I guarantee you it would outrun my 14 with the 5.3 all day long. It has plenty of get up and go with that turbo. One thing I don't like is the small fuel tank they are putting in the trucks now. Other than that I'm happy! Good luck!
  10. That's the only thing my wife gripes about too! I looked online trying to find something but nothing looked good. I plan to keep on looking and hopefully find something that can be mounted.
  11. I got my 2020 LT right after Christmas. Traded in my 2014 Silverado on it. I got the 2.7T too and I am really impressed with it so far. Lots of four banger haters here. I got the White Iridescent Pearl and it has leather seats. So far I'm real happy with the truck. Good luck!
  12. I moved up from a 2014 Silverado 1500 to a 2020 Silverado 1500. There's a lot of things that are better. It rides better and is quieter. The inside seems bigger. I love the taller and wider bed. One thing I'm sure I'll catch some flack about is I like my new 2.7T four cylinder. I just didn't need a big engine anymore. I'm old and don't pull a trailer or anything anymore. The 2.7T seems to be plenty powerful and if you didn't know it was a four cylinder you would never guess it. I guarantee you it is quicker of the line than the 5.3 in my 2014. I'm happy! It's a good truck so far.
  13. I got the 2.7T in my 2020 Silverado and the oil pressure stays around 30 psi. It was never that low in my 2014 Silverado 5.3. When I first saw the low pressure I pulled over and checked the oil. It was full. When I got home I did some research and found out 30 psi was normal. It looks funny when all the rest of the gauges are pointed up but the oil pressure is way over to the left.
