I’m keeping my 18 Z71 for at least 6-7 years unless there’s some crazy issues that arise in the next few years. At that point I’ll start looking at what GM and the competition have for offerings. The last several cars/trucks I’d trade in due to putting on higher mileage for work or trade in due to changes/needs in life at that time. Some of the new features and bling is awesome don’t get me wrong and would love to have those, but I’m pretty happy with what the 18 offers minus a few little things. What scares me about RAM is some of the issues that have been reported in other threads. While the interior looks like a million bucks, hearing about simple things falling apart is worrisome.
captainzombie replied to The4thgearkid's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraMy 18 Z71 5.3 can feel like a slog sometimes, so I can only imagine the 6 w/4.3 feels like being stuck in molasses from time to time.
Nice looking truck there! When I had my Colorado, the paint was Black and the wheels were a bronze/gray metallic color and looked good. Please post pics of the new wheels when you get those on, I am trying to figure out what color to go with myself when its time to replace these. I only have 2800 miles on my truck so I am having a hard time justifying replacing these tires and wheels yet since there are a few other things I want to do first.
I was actually thinking of taking my 18 to this place called Ziebart in my area where they do the undercoating protection. They had quoted me around $350 since I don’t have the time to do it myself. After seeing some of the pics on these forums, some of 2 year old trucks look like they’ve been on the road for 15-20 yrs. Any thoughts or recommendations? https://www.ziebart.com/auto-care-services/vehicle-protection/undercoating
captainzombie replied to biggrizzly's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraWhen I had my 16 Colorado, I had very similar wheels and those do look very nice. Which brand are the ones that you have?
captainzombie replied to Cupton's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraThat is quite an interesting move. Is this the norm with GM? Don't get me wrong, I love my 2018 but there is also some nice features in the 2019 that moving forward for them at this point would make more sense and improve the 2019 in a mid-cycle refresh instead of still producing 2018's.
captainzombie replied to Payton34's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraLol let’s just get this darn thread back on track. Hopefully GM goes back to the drawing board for their mid-cycle refresh and fix the issues people are having with the new 2019s to justify the GM tax increase of a price. I haven’t driven a 2019 yet to see what they drive like, and I do wish my 2018 had some of the features that we should of had a few years ago in GM trucks. I won’t sit here and bash a truck I haven’t driven yet which too many people are doing. By the time I’m ready for my next truck hoping GM gets some of this stuff straightened out and that the prices aren’t another $5-10k higher than where the 2019s are at. One of the most simplest features that I know Ford has had for years and is missing from GM is having all windows with auto up feature. I see that they added all auto down on the windows this year, but how about all going up?
captainzombie replied to Payton34's topic in 2019 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraThem Ridgelines are the most hideous “pickup” trucks. Whenever I see one, I always think Honda tried to make a mini Avalanche yet it’s a terrible looking design.
Mine is doing the same thing and I installed my own. I wonder if there is a batch of these that might need a bit more pressure on them and have expanded a little more than they should have. For now I’ll just live with it. Plus like TXgreek said you forget about it. At first it pissed me off but spending too much time keep taking it off doesn’t make it any better lol.
