I'm an old school guy. My take on it is that for myself personally I don't want any of the driver assist stuff on my truck. I don't want electronic dial shifters on the dash and stop start technology. To me that is a negative that I try to avoid like the plague, others love all and any new tech. Different strokes. I like the LS precisely because it's kind of basic. Sure it would be nice to cherry pick a couple of upscale options but not at the cost of getting stuck with a bunch of forced upon me nannies. Let me cherry pick the 6.2, the rear I want, maybe leather and some fog lights and it would be my perfect truck. The money isn't even my first priority, it's having a bunch of stuff I don't like being foisted upon me to get an engine or leather that will just probably not be pleasant to deal with when the warranty expires. I usually buy loaded hot rods but nannies aren't usually forced on you in that segment. Daily driver truck, I don't like being pestered by alerts all day. To each his own.
I bought a Tahoe LS Custom Midnight because it was the only one available with a third row delete which also cut like 3 grand off MSRP. I really had no interest in all the bells and whistles that come on the upper trims (except the 6.2) and an LS is by no means a stripped down vehicle. There is a market for a simple but decently optioned truck, especially if you would rather have storage than the third row,
Yeah I never shift it while its still moving in reverse. I've never had a vehicle that did this before. I can live with it but my concern is that down the line it will get worse being it shouldn't be doing it in the first place. I probably won't keep it past the 5 year warranty but you never know, and it would suck if it got worse and I had to pay out of pocket to fix it. Also if I ever decided to tune it I'm sure GM would blame the issue on that if it gets worse. Whether it's a minor nuisance at this point or not I feel something isn't right. I was hoping it might have been a somewhat common issue that could be fixed with a flash or something else non invasive.
Hi. New to this forum and my truck. I have a new 5.3 with a 6 speed. 90% of the time I have no issue but once or twice a day if quickly shifting from reverse to drive the tranny will delay engaging drive for a second or two which results in what feels like it slipping and then banging into drive. I can't reproduce it on demand but it will occur on occasion. If I wait 2 or 3 seconds it will never happen but when backing out of a driveway or making a quick U turn it will sometimes surprise me by exhibiting this behavior. Like I said if trying to reproduce it I can quickly shift it all day in my driveway and there is no delay.....it seems to have a mind of its own. Has anyone else experienced anything like this, or have some input on what may be causing it? The truck is a 2019 Tahoe but I figured I would post this question here as there seem to be a lot more Silverado owners giving input than Tahoe owners. I had asked on another Tahoe forum and there wasn't much posting traffic there. Being the drive trains are the same I'm hoping I might have more luck here. Thanks in advance for any replies.
