  1. My 2015 2500hd diesel has been in Auto nation in Coral Gables dealer for 2 weeks now. It all started with moisture every morning on the interior of my windshield, leading to constant fogging I started emptying out truck and low and behold, I found that the trucks, front Pass rug soaked in water under my waterproof mats, rear rugs were encapsulated in green , white mold and the back seat engulfed in whit mold under the sheepskin covers, which explains the issues I have been having with the radio touchscreen as moisture and mold permeated the whole cab. I took it to the dealer, that until w days ago said the truck did not have any leak, that they used a pressure washer to test and could not find any. So I took to the internet, and found several hundred complaints about water leaks coming from inside of the rear vents behind the back seats that the rubber flaps failed. GM has knowledge of this issue and vent failure but has done nothing about except to replace them with the same defective vent, pursuant to warranty. In my case I will not let that happen as the entire interior has mold that is visible and also spores that cannot be seen. The car is still under factory warranty that has to cover complete replacement to reinstate condition back to condition it was in when I first bought it. I can tell this is going to be an issue, and I have been advised by my counsel to document all interaction in writing, but the only reply from dealer has been an acknowledgement that the leak has been found and that the will contact me regarding repairs. NO OTHER CONTACT HAS BEEN HEARD TO DATE> I cannot fathom the excuse, as there is none. Bad Mojo around this recurring issue GM has not corrected. I am at my wits end my truck only has 9000 miles and sticker was well over &70K. TIME FOR A FORD.

  3. Reports: GM To Use Carbon Fiber In Truck Beds

    To whom it may concern: FIBERGLASS IS NOT CARBON FIBER. Repairs and manufacturing of fiber glass is an open air process; and do not require the cumbersome vacuum packing and sealing in an vacuum bag that carbon fiber requires for high tinsel strength. Air has to be removed from vacuum bag or the material will not cure evenly. I make a living doing this. Fiberglass repairs are a picnic compared to shattered carbon fiber parts that have to be discarded. You cannot make a buck (wood Mold) for carbon fiber without a vacuum bag big enough to fit the entire mold in, thus this is why the boating industry will never adopt carbon fiber to replace fiberglass less costly curing process. Hope this post clears that up.
  4. Oh, yeah, riiiiight, Mr. Dealership

    NOT IF YOU HAVE YOUR CREDIT REPORT FROZEN FROM PRYING EYS, THE DISADVANTAGE: YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY A FEE EACH TIME YOU WANT TO GIVE ACEES TO ANY BUREAU INQUIRY FOR A LOAN. BUT IN THIS DAY AND AGE IT IS A GOOD WAY TO PROTECT YOUR CREDIT....!
  5. CARBON FIBER??? LOL ONCE AGAIN AS IN 1973; NOT A GOOD CHOICE,

    33 years later and I cannot bring myself to trusts chev/gm's logistical research on new truck materials and design.

     

    You see in 1973 my Dad bought a bought a beautiful, shiny fully loaded Cheyenne Super truck. Blue and White and good looking for the first 16 1/2 months, then........

     

    Little did we know that GM/Chev built the struck with inferior metal that had either been recycled or not even primed for Rust/Corrosion protection. Seems that Chev/GM omitted telling their customers that the truck will rust and corrode with 18 months of owner ship.

    My Dad's truck lasted 26 moths until the hood front and hinges, door jambs and floors gave way to runaway rust, perforated metal corrosion in places never seen on any other year of manufacture other than 1973. This is explains why you do not see this 1973 year used trucks for sale. (RARE to find)

    Any customer for that current year model got ripped off and Chev/GM kept a silent voice regarding these issues, they simply swept it under the rug and after the 1974 models came out, it seem the problem quietly went away as none of the post 1974 trucks had the recurring RUST problem.

    So when I look at this 2019 Chevy I see a FORD/TUNDRA hybrid that looks awkward at best in rear lights and tailgate, front end has thin side by side headlights that give the TRUCK an oriental squint instead of a broad mean grin out of the grill accompanied by the dual bright headlights of the previous year's model.

     

    As far as I can see this is another experimental stage for a Proven Truck that did not need a body rear redesign, much less with similarities to competitors models that Chevy outsells in the first place.

    Don't MESS WITH A PRODUCT THAT IS PROVEN , it just kills any expectation of bold leadership , and lazy designers that have become complacent with their jobs...

    Good Luck, by the way I own and 2015 high country 2500 diesel, and that is a real trunk nest to any FORD< TUNDRA,NISSAN OR DODGE product out there. HELLO MCFLY??????

  6. Reports: GM To Use Carbon Fiber In Truck Beds

    BAD CHOICE, CARBON FIBER SHATTERS, NOT RELIABLE ENOUGH FOR HEAVY DROP LOADS, WEAR AND TEAR WILL DESTROY CARBON FIBER, I HAVE FERRARI'S THAT HAVE EXTENSIVE USE OF CARBON FIBER AND ALTHOUGH IT LOOKS GOOD, IT IS NOT RELIABLE FOR A TRUCK BED/OR LINING MATERIAL.
