  1. Strangely enough, I've had fairly good luck with CL. Sifting through the bottom feeders can be a hassle. All it takes is one sincere interested buyer.
  2. I'll trust your answer is accurate, thank you. Oh, and thank you for the kind comment, LOL! Closing issue.
  3. Just returned from a 500 mile road trip, ran fine all the way, 70-80 mph, MPG's down from 22 to 20. Noticed black soot in tailpipe, wipes off easily. See photo. Normal or not? Thanks https://ibb.co/TTS1dyt
  4. I kept mine. If you don't tell the dealer, some stumblebum will throw it away during prep.
  5. Mine only uses what I wipe off the dipstick when I check it.
  6. My easy method: Once a year, I simply drain and flush the overflow tank and refill with Dex-cool 50/50. It requires about 2/3 of a gallon. Doing it like that for years, never had a cooling system issue.
  7. I'd like to know too, OP seems hesitant to answer.
  8. I had mine done this morning, drove home about 5 miles, no difference.
  9. I don't mind the recall at all, I get free coffee and get to look at the new overpriced Sierras. Still love my '14 SLT.
  10. Right on! Myself? Purchased my 2014 SLT new, sticker was 42K, got it for that out the door, including a few extras. Most importantly, I didn't finance it, simply wrote a check for the full amount and it was all mine, titled in my name from day one.
  11. Follow the cable down to the black knob, turn c/c to detach.
  12. Sorry, I can't tell by your photo. I did mine 5 years ago, I was apprehensive about disconnecting the cable too but I don't recall any problems.....wished I could provide more info.
  13. I did this mod a few years back.The cable disconnects just like a speedo cable. First, adjust pedals all the way to the floor, disconnect the cable, raise the pedal(s) with the switch about an inch, no more, connect the cable, then using the switch move to pedals towards the floor. Be aware you only gain maybe 1/4 to 1/2 inch, that's all that can be done. BTW, mines a '14, the newer ones may be different.
  14. While waiting for service on my '14, I sat in a '19. I'll admit it was only for less than a minute but I didn't want to be approached by some pushy salesman, lol. After adjusting the seat, ect., I found myself "reaching" for the dash knobs and switches. Maybe trivial to some but that alone would kill the deal. Besides, it looks too much like a Tundra, no thanks.
  15. My '14 SLT stickered at 42K, got it for that out the door with a few accessories added and I'm ok with it. I paid cash and did not have to hassle with financing, high interest rates, ect. Most important, it was titled in my name day one, not the finance Co.
