DTB replied to Dr Awesome's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra 1500The compressor shouldn’t of been damaged as it shouldn’t of cycled without the system pressure. Curious if it had a vacuum on it though. Without a vacuum you could have moisture in the system however.
I got mine installed correctly without removing the cv shaft to drop the lower bolts in. I did have to pop the top ball joint off though. There was some pry bar use involved. No real way around that working on the front suspension.
Unfortunately it was kind of a perfect storm. I had to drop it off the night before after service hours, twice. From here on out any time I leave anything for service I will do a walk around video on my iPhone before hand. Either the dealership is lying about the cameras not working, or they really don’t but I doubt anyone would feel safe leaving anything there knowing it wasn’t under any kind of security. For the record, it wouldn’t of been left overnight the second night if they had called me after it was supposedly done. But, I guess I will see how GM pressures them. $1800 is a drop in the bucket compared to the bad publicity I could cast upon them.
Some of you may of seen my post the other day about my truck being damaged. I picked the truck up from the dealership Friday night and Saturday I noticed the front bumper smashed up. I returned to the dealership Monday. The mechanic who happens to be related to me said there was no damage to the truck when he serviced it. The Service Manager then gave me the story on how it probably was hit in the parking lot the night it was finished and that they were not responsible because it is a public lot. I asked to see the cameras but they claim they do not work on that side of the building. I then told them how I found a red fiber from a shop towel or something in the paint chip and they gave me the spill on how they don’t use those towels. So we proceeded over to the wash bay side where my truck was detailed afterwards and the guy who washed the truck kind of stumbles by in to the conversation and says the dent was there when he washed it. Then they got defensive and tried to say the dent must of already been there. My insurance claim is on hold, as I’m hoping to get something out of them before I blow my deductible and raise my rates for a $1800 repair bill. I’ve contacted GM about the lousy dealership but have yet to hear back. Any advice?
That is exactly my thoughts. Always before unless it was something like an alignment or exhaust shop I did it myself. This is my first real dealership experience and so far it has been unpleasant. Try to treat myself to something nice and buy a 2 year old truck with a warranty and so far it’s been all hell. On a side note, I’m returning to the dealership tomorrow. Also, my slightest doubts that I did it are gone as I discovered a red fiber from a towel in the paint scuff so I know it was there when they washed it at the dealership
Started the week off having my transmission flushed to remedy the torque converter shudder on Monday. Wednesday I notice that it’s leaking ATF and have to take it back because the o rings are bad on the cooler lines. I get it back Friday and notice when I am washing it off that someone has rubbed in to it. It only could of happened at the dealer lot because where I’ve been since I got it back, there’s zero chance of it being hit. I’m so freaking upset now. Looks like it will be getting a new bumper.
Recently I was complaining of the notorious 45-60 low rpm vibration on my 16 Sierra 5.3/8 speed that feels like driving over the rumble strip. Yesterday the dealership did a fluid flush/swap/filter change and so far so good. Smooth sailing so far and no tachometer flutter.
Can you get a SLT without the front sensors and slider window? I thought my 16 AT was a SLT but maybe it’s just an upfitted SLE. It has the leather, full console and 8” screen. It also has those cheap carbon fiber looking seat bottoms that rip and tear easy. Mine is torn at 35k miles.
