  1. Rohnert park California? There must be a dozen dealerships in a fifty mile radius that would be open and happy to help.
  2. Since my error message two months ago I have not had a reoccurrence of the problem. Probably not what you want to hear but my system works as intended, in fact yesterday it updated itself with additional information.. Mine is a 2020.
  3. My Canyon has a padded cover, replacement should not be impossible.
  4. I would think a trip to your dealer would answer your question better than here, I can understand your desire for the heated wheel as I live in a Northern area and would not buy a vehicle without it. Good luck in solving your dilemma.
  5. I had the same thing occur at just about the same mileage in my 2020 Canyon, drove to the dealership and when the vehicle was restarted all was ok. They ran a diagnostic on the infotainment center but all ok....I had tried car play on my phone once but have not used it since. This incident was about a month ago and the warning and blank navigation has not happened again.
  6. My 2020 Denali pulled the same trick while driving down the road, when I stopped the engine and started it again the problem no longer existed. I had GM run a diagnostic and it came back all ok. Take your truck to a dealer and have them run a diagnostic of the infotainment center.
  7. Jlong, I bought a 2019 Jeep Cherokee....It did not have a key plus other electronic items to relieve me of having to use my brain. The worst were the stupid no key system and the other was having to press a button after every start to keep the engine from shutting off every time the Jeep came to a stop....I hated these additions to what was an otherwise smooth ,quiet and fun vehicle...I sold it!
  8. I can truly say I am glad I bought my 2020 Canyon rather than wait for a front end rework that would give me nightmares...sorry but the photos would send me home from the dealership with designs on keeping the current truck a lot longer. There I gave my opinion without ever using the word “hideous”.
  9. My trucks have been red the last five purchases because of the beautiful paints now being used. My favorite color is white normally but the metallic reds that glow day and night have taken control , my Canyon Denali has such a rich look to it white is totally overshadowed by comparison. Maybe next year I can go back to white....
  10. Back to the strike issue, I am happy my new GMC was built on July 18 before the negotiations bogged down and the strike was called. I should think the vehicles assembled in those last few days will be something I would not want to purchase. I have seen strikes where the strikers destroyed property and threatened non union workers with injury, then the day the strike ends those same workers expect to have all sins forgiven. The health care issue is very similar. Now that is a mentality I cannot understand
  11. The UAW (currently having top echelon arrested for corruption) is now the employer of all striking persons so why should they not pay any needed benefits including health care. If an individual chooses not to work why should that same person expect the former employer, who is suffering the effects of shuttered plants, to owe them any allegiance? It will be interesting to see how workers respond post strike if not totally satisfied with a contract. We the consumer will probably feel the effects of a disgruntled employee when the next auto is purchased.
  12. Maybe you should quit backing into people ? Seriously replacing the factory bumper will be expensive, the trailer hitch for one thing is part of the bumper and it’s mounting and strength. A painted bumper will cost to match your vehicle so maybe the chrome one would be cheaper, just a guess but i’ll bet it has a price tag closing on a grand plus installation. I cannot imagine driving with the bumper bent for too long, I would bite the bullet and have it replaced.
  13. I checked and my truck does not have a gas cap locking or otherwise so I do the next best thing and simply lock my truck in the garage when not in use?.
  14. TXGREEK, I am one who over services his vehicles, until five or six years ago I did most of the work myself because the dealer did not do as nice a job as I. Now that I am a senior ( politically correct for “ old as dirt” it is hard to get up and down or lay on my back under the vehicle. I purchase from a “hometown” dealer and they are very friendly to my Westie and me. GM recommends Mobil One and being a creature of habit once I started using it some years ago I probably will not change short of a world wide shortage, my vehicles run super fine on Mobil One consequently I am quite content, price being of no consequence. I am currently on my fifth Canyon pick up and have yet to seek out the service department for anything but recalls and service leaving me to believe my maintenance schedule is in fact working. A friend of mine long ago began using Amsoil and a toilet paper filter on his Dodge pick up, after many many miles he would change the oil and filter. Amsoil and his TP only lasted for 260,000 miles when the transmission and rear end finally gave up and the truck went off to the Great wrecking yard, the engine he boasted had never been touched internally and was still going strong when the rest of the truck died ( he used Amsoil in the transmission and rear end also. So no disparaging comments on Amsoil here I just like the warm fuzzys Mobil One gives me. Oh, I also have the dealership trained to wipe off any residue they put on my engine or undercarriage, taking the truck back and having it done over one time convinced them to do the job right the first time.....that was five years ago and I still check but find they are doing everything expected.
  15. I always change oil near 1000 miles for the first time, just took delivery on my 2020 Denali and have made an appointment for the service next week. I have only 500 miles now and expect a few hundred more by change time then the changes will be every 3000 thereafter. GM now puts synthetic in their vehicles and I have always used Mobil 1 having all services done at the dealership.
