  1. Off the topic, but I have another vehicle of two, both with tow systems that I use with a trailer ... have never borrowed anyone's pickup.
  2. Booger, While a generically accurate thing to say, your comment does not address the fact this site has become money hungry, vs truck centric. It has the most ads of ANY site I visit - and, I participate in LOTS of technical, aircraft, home repair, tools, etc sites - no one is even close. My computer also is overloaded - when I hit gm-trucks.com the fans crank up and everything slows to a crawl. Wonder what the site owners are thinking?
  3. Has everyone noticed how trashed with advertising gm-trucks has become?
  4. Hi All, So, I have a 2017 Silverado High Country with 6.2 engine. Had bought it initially to occasionally and only locally tow my 6000# boat, but ended up using it for trips with family - 46,000 miles. White, brown interior with piping a la the usual High Country thing. Was checking, just for grins, on Facebook marketplace ... CRAZY numbers folks are asking - like in the low 50s ... I don't want a new truck, but is this just a time to take advantage of the used market? Anyone gone through this thought process recently? Thanks!
  5. Hi All, Not sure this is the right place to post a question on truck value? Don't have much other than usual NADA like materials to go on - anyone have reasonable idea what my 2017 4X4 High Country Silverado with 6.2L and 45,000 miles (new Michelins, four panel bed cover) would sell for to a non-dealer buyer? No accidents, nearly perfect condition. Market seems pretty tight so seemed like might be a good time to sell? North Florida. Thanks!
  6. Hi All, Not sure this is the right place to post a question on truck value? Don't have much other than usual NADA like materials to go on - anyone have reasonable idea what my 2017 4X4 High Country Silverado with 6.2L and 45,000 miles (brand new Michelins, four panel bed cover) would sell for to a non-dealer buyer? No accidents, nearly perfect condition. North Florida.
  7. So, I read dozens of the pages on this thread - didn't find my question discussed ? 2017 Silverado High Country with 6.2L - I would like to "tighten" up the handling without raising, lowering, etc ... don't mind a bit harder ride, but really hate it when this things starts hanging in corners like on sharp interstate exits ... I put Bilstein HDs on an older Ford SportTrac and it was an amazing difference ... Thanks!
  8. Congrats - is the transmission running the new fluid - there was an issue dating back a couple of years.
  9. TwoBall - I understand what happened in your circumstance. Another poster had noted his brake pedal got hard when he pumped it at a traffic light ... different circumstance.
  10. Someone noted that when they sit at a stop light and pump the brake pedal it gets really hard ... uh, isn't it supposed to do this? Just took mine in yesterday ... reprogramming took a couple of minutes. The recall apparently also includes an additional 12,000 miles on the pump warranty.
  11. Wow - didn't take you long to get nasty ... when someone disagrees with your incredibly flawed logic. Hopefully your friends know this about you and will mitigate your attempt to influence them. Now, if you had some data (ya know - studies, analysis, etc) - vice opinion, it might mean others will listen to you. I'm still stuck on this, though ... "It’s already been explained how it could be causing damage to your engine leading to failure" - odd how and why a manufacturer would not warn of this? So, getting past your input, are the owners of the 6.2 that have been using regular and have some information to contribute to the discussion?
  12. Sigh ... the engine is approved to use regular fuel by the manufacturer and by extension this is known by their dealer network ... right? It was designed this way. Sooooo ... what are you so excited about? Performance engine? Nah. I would like to hear other owners’ experiences with regular v premium, though ... vice shrill warnings of impending doom.
  13. Txgreek, You went from asking a question ... yes, I did know it preferred premium, and I also knew what that meant. This combo gave me some options, so I bought it. Then, you infer neglect, in this case, by not using premium fuel - which is not required. You then note I should tell the next owner I used an allowable fuel? Guess it’s time for you to unfollow, again ... sounds like the facts may be causing you undue angst. ?
  14. Sorry - pulled info from this article that mentioned preferences of the consumers ... http://gmauthority.com/blog/2019/02/new-gm-6-6-liter-v8-l8t-engine-no-active-fuel-management-auto-stop-start/ It's interesting to see it is regular fuel recommended ...direct injected, 401 HP (24 less than 6.2), 464 torque (about same as 6.2), 10.8 compression ratio (vs 11.5 in 6.2) Extra 0.4 liter displacement is in 6mm longer stroke ... MOST interesting is iron block!
  15. aseibel, Thanks ... I think you got the point of my questions ... I'm cool with modifications and may do so to my Silverado when out of warranty ... several interesting discussions ongoing wrt the AFM (advantages and disadvantages - mine BTW has been flawless to date and certainly improves MPG) and clearly GM didn't do themselves any favors with the 8 speed transmission design/fluid modification issue. This transmission scenario and their lack of early response to owners' angst has cost them quite a bit of business - a shame, since it could have been handled differently with great marketing results. Anyway - like my Silverado, like the fuel mileage, like the flexibility of regular or premium fuel options, like the ride and towing power. Just bumped into an article on 2020 6.6L direct injected engine without AFM/DFM (supposedly because so many owners don't like) ... GM still trying ... we'll see if the direct injection offsets the AFM/DFM savings.
