  1. 2015 Sierra leaking sunroof

    Sorry for your troubles. This is why I never buy a vehicle, that I’m going to keep outside of warranty, with a sunroof. While they are nice to have at times, they are a leak point. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I did the same thing. I’m trying to get my father in law to upgrade his 14 Sierra to the same. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just out of curiosity, why is it a big deal? You’re going to have it lined and they will scuff it all up so the liner stick anyway. Not trying to argue here just trying to understand why you’re going back to the dealer over something that will be sanded down anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m going to say your wheel base is just the right length to hit the joints in the concrete road at the same time, causing this bad bounce. When the trailer is loaded, the additional weight is keeping the bounce at bay. When empty the bounce is there because there isn’t enough weight on the truck to keep the truck under control. On the next trip, find a spot you can pull over and stop then inspect the truck wheel base and joint spacing. I’ll bet money they are the same length or damn close. I experienced this on my ‘01 Sierra I had when pulling a boat home from Wisconsin. The axles where spaced just right to hit every joint at the same time. It caused a serious bounce as well and we had to find an alternate route to get off the concrete road. Concrete roads are notorious for this issue, especially when the company who paved it had their machine set wrong or didn’t know what they were doing. Paving with concrete is a very tricky thing and if not done properly can make for a very harsh ride when driving on it. If what I’m saying here is accurate, the only way to fix this is get a longer wheel base truck or find an alternate route to avoid the concrete road. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. That’s very interesting of the years you mention. Mine is a 2015 that I purchased new in March of 2015. I wonder if it is a certain factory that has the issues with bracket movement? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes my pedals are adjustable. I’m guessing that’s the difference in the lack of flex. Thanks for the reply! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Ok. Maybe I’m missing something regarding the gas pedal flex. I have zero flex issues with my pedal. Everything seems to be mounted solid and I am not sure where I would even put the paint stick. Can someone tell me if I’m missing something here? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Brake system

    This is why I keep all paperwork. Even if they can’t find the cause of the issue, I have paperwork stating the issue it was brought in for. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Remote oil filter

    He has a Fumoto drain valve on the oil pan to basically eliminate any mess when draining the oil. The filter relocate makes the filter change much easier and hopefully less messy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Phone mount?

    Isn’t the total of 10W only for faster charging? My iottie charged fairly quickly for my phone and my wife’s Galaxy S9+. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That’s nice and all of you take the keys out every night and each use a different set of keys and key fob. We never remove the keys from our vehicles because they are in a locked garage each night. So one key is always used. Her Acadia has the same issue with the button. Got to hold it down to get the seat to the saved position. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Phone mount?

    I have a qi charger for my iPhone 7 Plus. The charger i have is an iottie. I LOVE it. It’s a windshield mount and I have it hardwired into the trucks fuse box. I just set my phone in it and don’t worry about it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I do the same thing for my WiFi. I use the o star system. They use ATT towers at least that’s what they told me. I experience slow speeds a lot of times too. I have done the same with opening tickets and am told i will get a call back in a few days to see if the problem has been resolved. Never once have I got a call back. I will continue to pay for it since it’s cheaper than adding a hotspot to my phone. Plus I can cancel at anytime since I’m not locked into a contract. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I’m very curious in the answer to this as well. My wife’s 17 Acadia does the same thing even with the WiFi turned off. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Bad Lifter

    Just got my truck back. Dealer said the noise I was/am hearing is normal and it is the fuel pump. I know that’s not the case and is more likely the injectors instead. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
