  1. Bought a new LT Z71

    Love the Red Hot color ! Always receive complements on my LT. Added Michelin Latitude winter tires, seem to work fine in the mountain snow. Have the 18 inch factory rims. Good luck with the great truck !
  2. First snow expected this week, cannot get Nokian tires wanted until the end of December : Hakap. 3 SUV .. Everywhere I go are anti-stud tires required. Will have to go with something else at this time . Thanks for the response.
  3. I believe I went to the menu and checked the update availability.. The update showed on the screen and proceeded to update the system software. You have to have network. ( WiFi ) activated on the vehicle. Now have an Exxon app and Shell app to purchase gas. There are a few others you can activate.
  4. In my area and travels, winter tires are required, due to poor snow plowing, by the city, as well as, access to the mountains. Has anyone tried the winter tire, planning to purchase next week - Michelin Latitude X ice xi2 tires. 265/65R /18 ? Have been reading mixxed reviews on this tire, reaching out to see if anyone could give advice on this purchase . Thank you.
  5. 2018 wiper chatter

    Tell the dealer staff you want the wipers replaced, period ! They will replace them. They will replace them, if asked, while performing the two free oil changes. They will only replace one pair, during the free maintenance program. My 18 1500 has the chattering problem, as well.
  6. 5.3L fuel usage?

    I usually use 87 around town, but when traveling long distances with hilly terrain on the highway, will switch to 93, to prevent knocking and lousy power band. The truck always seems to run better on the highway, with 93. Always use Top Tier Gas, as well. You will pay in the long run, if you do not. Have not had fuel injection or emissions issues, following these guidelines. Make sure you use a good fuel injector cleaner in the gas tank, at least every six months or 6000 miles. Install a good catch can, as well. Just try different octane ratings, then you will find the octane sweet spot, for your truck. Good luck.
  7. 2019 Silverado LT TrailBoss

    Wow! That is one black truck ! The Darth Vader special ! Looks great, so jealous!
  8. Just purchased a new truck, the dealer had trucks with the Eassist, the price on the sticker for this option, was $2500.00. I went with a regular truck, when the salesman could not properly explain the system, to my satisfaction.
  9. The technology is fantastic for just $150.00 per year. It can save your life ! That is pretty cheap insurance. If you are disabled and have an assisted device installed, you get the full package for free, two years coverage. The truck has to be brand new and devices installed, within 90 days of purchase. GM will also reimburse up to $1000.00, towards the cost of the installed devices.
  10. Ha, ha, an honest man, made me smile ! Brought back to reality !
  11. Mexican built crewcab, super lousy paint job , with a lot of exposed orange peel. Worst paint job in memory. All else seems fine.
