Just curious, (as I'm one that never used the parking brake in any of my automatic vehicles) what issue should I be concerned with by never using it? Our is it a case of you useing it after not using it for a long time, and hanging up? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
I would say close to 4-5 years ago, now? We no longer have the suburban as of 1 year ago. Traded it in at the same dealership, no issues with the vehicle. (And we do most of our service and sales there.) And the new/ remanufactured t- case had about 30,000 miles on it with the gm auto Trac fluid when we traded it. ( The GM auto Trac fluids was $1-2 per quart cheaper too, go figure!) No other issues with any of the bg products that were put in the vehicle at the same time. I truly believe that it was too thick of an oil, (the auto Trac is more like a transmission oil thickness) and it partially starved itself in the "pick up line pump) and the clutches acted like they started to become sticky. Where the 4 wd would start behaving like it's going in and out really abruptly. It never did that before the change or since with the gm recommend fluid. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
Not sure what product bg recommend for the transfer case vs what gm recommends in the current trucks. But in my 2005 suburban ( wife's)gm recommended GM's auto Trac fluid due to the clutches. Had my dealer change all fluids trans, t - case, front and rear diff. It was winter time, and within 300 miles I started noticing 4 wd issues ( only 4 wd, doesn't do it in 2 wd), dealer started throwing one of the electronic parts on to it that was supposedly bad. Next weekend I drive it and it's snowing again, same problem. Call dealership get it in and they think it's another bad module. Replace it too. Still no change when I pick it up.... Still snowing, and now it smells like it's burning axle fluid smell. So I go out when I get home and lay in the snow and pull the plug to see if they put fluid in t- case and front axle... Well, they put axle fluid from bg In my t case also!! I'm pissed, go back to them and WTF? They tell me that's what bg recommend for my t case, and the BG rep said the same thing when I take to them! Wtf gear lube in a modern t -case that had clutches this truck was not from the 70's. Bg put $200 towards my t case that grenaded all the clutches in 978 miles from the time the fluid was changed. This truck was never driven hard, it had the original front and rear brakes still at 100,000 miles. Find out what fluid they recommend first!!! I never would have let them put gearcase oil in my t -case had I known that's what they recommended! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
Donstar might give you some info that you are looking for as I believe he tows with his v6. Most of us, I don't believe, buy that combination if we plan to tow on a regular basis. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
Didn't think about possibly having to replace the skin on the door or the entire door, ouch! That makes the current mirror location that much worse. The strength is at the a pillar, and they should remove the blank filler plate and put the mirror back in that location in my opinion. It also gives people a lot of better choices for mirror changes should they decide they want something different than what it came with.

What about driving one with a 6.2 with a 10 speed also to see what you think?
The mount is lower yes, but then the mirror comes back to to approximately the same height at the same location of the window! So now you got a dumbass looking arm that's bolted to flimsy sheet metal and when people walk by these tight-ass parking lot spaces and hit it with their shoulders it dents the flimsy for panel. And you got a stupid ass looking blank filler plate where their mirror used to be....... It looks stupid and serves zero purpose, put a pillow under your ass if you need to sit the one inch higher to see!
Why not? It will hold the shift points higher, which is a good thing for the hills, so it's not shifting as often. It will also give you grade braking too. I know it's not much of a load, but some people run it with out a load due to the higher shift points...... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
I agree with you 100% that they will move on negotiating more on a vehicle in stock, especially if it's been there for a while! I was just saying that the incentives appear to be the same whether the vehicle is in stock or not, which we both agree on that point also. I was just curious if somebody knew of a special incentive that only applied to vehicles on the lot vs. ordering a vehicle? And of course like you said, if you're not happy or excited with your vehicle why would you want to purchase it anyhow, just because it was cheaper? No thanks!
My vehicles that I have ordered in the past, I have never had to take delivery of it if I didn't want it. Therefore they are "in stock" vehicles..... it would also be no different if I had then do a dealer swap from someone else, my incentives offered to me have always been the same whether it was on that vehicle or a different one out in their lot, or another dealer's lot. ( They were always based on whatever current incentives programs that were currently running.. And which ones you could actually be qualified for) So I'm not sure if my dealer is screwing me or if yours are screwing you when it comes to incentives? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
