Lol I have been on this for about 5 years now and at one point between not having a catch can or AFM turned off I was scared to drive my truck. But I have had 5 years and 66,000 trouble free miles. I enjoy this site but I quit worrying about driving my truck every day. By the way my Sierra is bone stock.
I would just drive it and stop worrying about it. If it happens it happens if it don't it don't. One thing I have learned is I quit getting in every time I drive worrying about the afm. I'm sure there are lots of these truck with more miles then that of people who have never heard of or been on this site to worry about afm. Half of the people driving these trucks probably dont even know what afm is. Lol
I think that the trucks made from 99-06 were the most reliable. I had an 06 Silverado ext cab z71 5.3. There are some things I do miss and liked better than my 15 Sierra. 06 was last year with no AFM and no traction control. Those are the 2 biggest things I miss. I had that truck almost 10 years and only thing I did to it was oil changes and front pads. The guy I sold it to is still driving it to this day and he has only replaced a brake line. I sure hope my 15 can hold up that good. Only time will tell. I have had my 15 a little over 5 years and other then a set of tires at 64,000 miles that all I have done.
Also make sure if you go with a 13 it dont burn oil. My friend had bought a brand new one and had alot of issues with it burning oil. The dealer try multiple things to fix and nothing seemed to work. He really liked the truck but just got tired of dealing with it.
Mine does this sometimes, squeeze the 2 tabs on brake controller then hit dismiss. Mine stops for months then.
When I bought my Sierra I also looked at the allstar edition Silverado. I have the z71 Sierra sle with the value package. I got it for the same price as the Silverado was. I assume the sle and allstar are similar but I did get more options for the same price. Things the Sierra had the chevy did not where...built in garage door opener, LED bed lights, factory spray in bed liner, white stitching on interior,built in trailer brake controller and heated seats. That's why I went with GMC got it for same price more options.
Ok thanks. I'm at 60,000 now and I have never had anything done to mine. It shifts great and is real smooth. Would you recommend filter and fluid change? I dont tow anything real heavy. Mostly haul my son's and my dirt bikes.
