    2019 GMC AT4
  1. A great question Chris! And also one I am sure won't be answered in my lifetime! Should it reoccur, I will take it in and post again, but so far, no repeat.....
  2. 2019 AT4 6.2L, 2300 miles.... Upon start up I receive a message on the DIC that says "Replace Air Filter Soon". No other lights or difficulties. It will extinguish if you press the thumbwheel reset. Sadly, it reoccurs on next start up. Any ideas about how to reset the light? Edit.... please disregard. I found the reset buried in the DIC menus.....
  3. Nav Map Screen

    Here is a picture of my nav display. At the top of the display you can read "Waze" and "1250" because they are high contrast black. But nothing on the map is . Just washed out light greyscale and muted colors. There are street names on the display in the picture. You just can't see them.
  4. We have had our new AT4 for 3 days now. The truck is brilliant! The tailgate was really well designed, the HUD is much more intuitive and useful than anticipated, BUT....... When using the Nav function, on the map screen, I can't see the information displayed. The map display is very washed out, seeming like the brightness is turned all the way up, but the contrast is turned all the way down. There is no black on the display at all. Just greyscale letters and numbers. Very light pastel coloring for the map items. I had tried to switch to Google Maps and Waze with Android auto, hoping those maps would work better. But no, they just use the native display colors when displayed on the infotainment center. This display just doesn't work well for me. Is it possible there is something wrong with my head unit, or do I need to learn to live with this? Is everyone else's map screen crisp and bright, or washed out and hard to read like mine?
  5. Laura GMC Trade In

    No, sadly, that was the vehicle price. The only fee Laura has is $185 dealer fee. In Florida, dealers regularly charge $700 - 800. As it was, I received 11.6% off MSRP. I considered that very fair. If the rebates do change, I would imagine you will see a similar increase in price to offset the rebate savings. At least until toward the end of the model year. The Florida dealers I visited were not willing to discount below about 5%. Good luck with your search and hope you find a great truck!
  6. Laura GMC Trade In

    Smitty, I have the AT4, all 4 of the option packages, the 6.2L, sunroof, and the Duratrac tire upgrade. I paid $56,311. MSRP was $63,700. And I am enjoying the truck. The only complaint I have is the Nav map colors. They are (to my eye) very washed out pastel colors and various greyscale. No distinct blacks. And no adjustments. I figured that wouldn't matter, I would just use Google maps or Waze via the Android Auto feature. Well, no luck there either. When displayed on the truck, they both switch to the resident colors. Not a show stopper, just a disappointment for me.
  7. Laura GMC Trade In

    OK, I promised an update...... I did purchase the AT4 from Laura. My wife and I drove the F150 from Florida to St Louis on our way to Chicago for Christmas. Upon arrival, we were a little disappointed. It took over 6 minutes until the porter pulled the new truck to the front of the building. (yes that was a weak attempt at wit...) The deal was exactly as advertised, including the offer they made us sight unseen on the F150. (as an aside, they beat the SW Florida Carmax offer by over $5k). The price on the AT4 was what they had promised, and they even made sure we got the GMC December discount on the accessories I ordered. I did buy the 2 year additional factory warranty (new to GM this year). Laura charges $1300 ($1208 for military/first responders) for this. I believe I have read the MSRP is around $1800. Dave, the finance manager, did not try to push this or anything else. I asked him about it. The total elapsed time between our pulling into the lot and driving away was 1 hour 45 minutes. And about 30 minutes of that was spent by us transferring things between the 2 trucks. I couldn't be happier with the entire process. Our salesman was Ross Mandernach. He wouldn't let us leave until he was convinced we were satisfied! We would certainly recommend him. (In fact, if you call him, tell him I sent you and I will split the $100 referral bonus with you!) Bottom line, great deal and they were good to the word to the last detail!
  8. engine stop start

    Ummmm, Starman, the small bit you are missing is that there is already a factory installed switch on the center stack of the dashboard.
  9. Thanks Silverado.... picking up the truck next Wednesday, so no luck there. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the $1500 email, but so far no luck there either. Got a $7K off MSRP deal from Laura GMC, so I am pretty satisfied, but hard to not hope for more!
  10. Has anyone hear of any new rebates for GMC Sierras for December yet? So far all I have heard about is the Costco rebate from my dealer.
  11. Laura GMC Trade In

    LOL, I tried that with 2 dealers here in SW Florida. The closer of the 2 was still $2800 more than Laura. It will take about $1100 in fuel and hotels to get to Collinsville and I have the time. Easy choice.
  12. Laura GMC Trade In

    Thanks everyone.... All of my dealings with them so far (phone and Email) have seemed straight up and above board. I will report back after the deal is done!
  13. Hi all. I am getting ready to order an AT4. Laura GMC is offering the best price by far. I believe I am going to trade in my F150. I live about 1500 miles from Laura, and even with the travel costs added on, their pricing is still the best. They have offered a very fair trade price. Add that to the sales tax advantage of trading in vs. selling outright, and this is the right choice. So, the question is.... has anyone been offered a trade in deal from Laura? And once you arrived (assuming your vehicle was in the shape you described to them) did they honor that price? Or did they try to give you a different price? It is a long way to drive, but the deal they offered is worth it if they don't try to change anything.
