  1. Hello yall, it's been great reading up and contributing here but I'm out of the GM game.. I went and got me a Tundra. I just needed a crew cab and felt my extended cab wasn't going to serve my family well - too crowded. I'll miss some nice features that the Silverado had but at the same time.. I got a really good deal on my Tundra (higher trim than my Silverado ever was).
  2. Lol. Funny read, But you work in the said industry where you earn a living from it. I supposed that's from one perspective. Heck the health industry was wrong about the four food groups, after years / decades telling kids that the four food groups is how they should eat and categorize this foods. Aren't there so called health professional or whatever they call themselves? Lol how did they go wrong there?? Of course if money wasn't an issue couldn't you change it every month? Would that cause problems too it just when it reaches too high of a milage. Just saying.. I personally don't have an issue going to a shop and getting the fluids that I can't do done on time.
  3. You're correct, appears to only be present when the vehicle has warmed up. I bet the new ones in the lot don't do that. So how can they keep saying it's normal! Wtf
  4. While this is true, if I have no problems for the next 2 yrs, which I assume I won't because I only drive about 9,000 miles a year if that. That means I would only be at about 48k miles. I won't even be close to the 100,000 miles, i'll run out of time before the miles. Though it's a nice piece of mind, it's 3000 + 100 that I would have paid in for any future work already. Or cut short and be in only at $1500. Obviously the best choice is to save that money into future repairs and if there are no repairs and my 5 year, 60 month is up, I can could pocket it or save it for future repairs beyond the 5 yrs. I think the wife is ok with what I'm thinking of doing. Honestly, if I was driving this truck to the ground and racking up 3000 miles a month, I would keep it. But I'm just not, we have 2 cars and this is my daily driver to work a long 7 miles one way. The weekend family car is the other car I drive on weekends or on trips.
  5. Yes, I take care of all the maintenance religiously. I have worked on my own cars since I was 19 i'm now 40 LOL. I'm not afraid of doing a lot of things. I guess the only true thing I haven't done is rebuild an engine or transmission.

  7. I guess i'll go in this weekend and get'er done. The dealership will need the mileage to prorate it, I bet they will try to talk me out of it.

  8. Yes, for me they said.. we'll that's how we can get you that % rate. I really thought for a while and said, this is my first real American made vehicle so I would consider buying the warranty for peace of mind. I paid off the truck a year later. Later I called my friends/family who have bought Chevy trucks and SUV's and they didn't appear to have any issues with their vehicles. My dad had always had GMC or Oldsmobile back in the late 80's, my mom also had an Astro Van. No real issues either. Me, I've always owned Japanese vehicles cause I liked their designs and being shorter in stature, it fit me better. If this truck didn't have the adjustable peddles, I may not have bought it LOL. O well, you live and learn.
  9. Financially I'm solid, no issues with money in the bank or CC if needed. I just don't want to waste the money on "if". Even if I saved the remaining, it would be around $1548 after my calculations. 60 months, used 31 months so far, 29 months remaining at $49.97/month. If pro-rated refund, I should be pretty well off. I honestly do not like the fact I will have to pay $100 deductible each claim, it's not a $0 deductible claim. I have a few working mechanic friends (not home mechanic) that I use when it comes to complicated stuff that I cannot do and their "donation" rate is way cheaper than any shop. I'm considering that as well.
  10. Thanks, good tip. I was wondering about the same, I'm thinking of doing that to my tire replacement as well. Add money into a separate pot so when new tires are needed, It won't be sticker shock. $700-$800 is not chump change for new tires by no means.
  11. Yes I'm reading the exclusions. I'm also considering cancellation because I have to pay $100 deductable with each claim. It's not going to stop costing me money.
  12. I compared this coverage to my co-workers (he bought a Ford F150 last year new), I know it's not a apples to apples comparison but his warranty covers 7yrs, 70k for $2700 with drive train/transmission as well. So my warranty is 5 yrs 100k, are they betting it to crash and burn before the 5 yrs is over? I would feel dumb if I didn't cancel this at the end of the 5 yr term, just 2 more years to go. Honestly I think I drive less than 9k a year now, so I would only be in the mid 30k range by the time this warranty expires. I could use that money else where like build a big shed or a trailer or boat.. hmm
  13. Hi All, I am debating whether or not to cancel my extended warranty I purchased 2 1/2 years ago when I bought my 2016 Silverado LT new. Obviously, the warranty overlaps everything the manufacture is offering for the first 3 years, 36,000 miles etc. My ext warranty is 60 months (5 yrs), 100,000 miles. Covers everything Engine, Transmission/transaxcel, transfer case, electrical, Fuel, Interior, Exterior, steering, suspension, cooling, drive axle, brakes, AC/heating, and additional benefits like lockout, tow, rental coverage, trip interruption, gas supply and jump starts etc. The question is, I paid $2998 for it, but seeing that nearly I have 5 months left before my MFG warranty expires on the 3yr/36k, would it be worth it just to cut my losses now or keep it? I would get a little under half back, (roughly $1300-$1400). I know the warranty only "covers" 2 years, since the first 3 is all MFG. So essentially I'm paying $1500 a year for 2 yrs for this thing. I haven't had any "major" issue, which I am mainly concern about the transmission or engine just needing a replacement/rebuild that would cost in the THOUSANDS, the other parts I can do on my own and I'm pretty mechanically inclined and do my own auto repair. If it were you, would you cancel it? Do I need to factor the % of risk into this truck? This is my first owning a domestic GM / Chevy. BTW, my truck only has 25,000 miles on her. Thanks in advance, Johnny
