harveyfamily started following Sudden loss of fuel economy - 2014 Chevy Silverado 5.3 LT - dropped 7m, Rear wiper blade replacement , 2017 Acadia Infotainment System Updates and and 2 others
I just made this switch. My wife and I discussed trading in my 2015 Sierra for the past couple of months which is right after we purchased her 2017 Acadia All-Terrain. I grew to love the mid-size platform and after discussing it we realized I rarely ever haul anything except maybe once or twice a year, we no longer have our travel trailer and even if we got another one I would get a smaller one, and I was averaging at best 15-16 MPG with the Sierra. I looked at both the Canyon (as I really like that look) and the Colorado this past weekend. The GMC dealer wouldn't budge much from MSRP on a 2018 SLE that I was looking at. They would only come down about $1000 before rebates, and since we own GM vehicles we didn't qualify for the Conquest rebate. I then went and looked at a Colorado Z71 in the Graphite Metallic color (very similar if not the same as my wife's Acadia's Iridium Metallic color) and liked that it had the leather interior I wanted and the dealer had installed the step assist bars which helps our 6 year old son get in and out of the truck. It also had the blacked out bow ties. I waited two days to pull the trigger as the deals were nearly identical but the Chevy dealer had a little bit better discount and was willing to work with my financing. The GMC guy just insulted both me and Chevy when I told him I was deciding between the two. The Canyon had cloth interior and no other options other than the Driver Alert Package. All said and done today I am officially driving the Colorado. I really like how it drives compared to the full size. I got a crew cab Colorado whereas my Sierra was an extended cab. Both of our kids (6 year old and 10 year old) both say there's more room in the back seat of the Colorado. My wife likes the "carbon fiber" look of the center console where the cup holders are. The truck looks sharp! The next two things I will be doing is adding the Homelink module which I can't believe GM never offered and get a spray in bed liner. After that is a tonneau cover, the BakFlip MX4 like my Sierra had.

A few times now in my 2015 Sierra when I am getting gas and I have the key in the on position listening to the radio that message comes on. I asked the service tech at the dealership when I last got the oil changed and was told this was normal because of the modules running. That doesn’t sound right to me though. I just crossed 32k miles on the odometer and was hoping that they would test the battery and find a bad cell.
Thank you!! Do I need to worry about the lifters or installing the AFM Delete kit or will the Range AFM protect the engine? It has approximately 99k miles. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
My wife and I are looking to downgrade her car payment and term length to a vehicle we can pay off quickly. There's a used car dealer in our area that has a 2007 Yukon SLT for sale. It has just under 100k on the clock, looks very clean as we test drove it yesterday and it drove very well. Steering was tight which surprised me given its age. It's fully loaded with power everything like my wife wants. Brakes are good, transmission shifts good, engine has plenty of power. Brand new Michelin tires. The 3rd row seats have large cubby holes in the middle which I've never seen before. The only issue I saw was the dash has a crack near the passenger airbag cover but from what I read it's common. Also there's a crack on the passenger side dash on the front piece that faces the passenger. Not sure how common that is. Carfax is clean on it. I'm quite familiar with 5.3l since a had a 2007 Silverado bought new and had for several years and I have a lot of faith in the LS engine. Is there anything I need to be concerned with on this vehicle? We would like to keep it until it falls apart. [emoji4]. Haven't purchased it yet as we are still thinking over it.

harveyfamily replied to Mouwzer's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI'm on the other side of this one; I have a 2015 Sierra and would rather have the "Chevy" bluegreen colored dash light trim.
I have the iO5 radio. Would the nav screen on the new cluster show anything or would it be like my current cluster now and just show what onstar's directions would be? If I upgraded to the iO6 with CarPlay would it be any different on the new cluster? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
