  1. The update only fixed the 1-2 slip when it happened while driving, basically when taking off from a light or exiting the freeway slowing down and it would stutter a bit. 1-2 slip after a cold start only subsided for a while after the update then started back up again. I don't by the system is learning anything it should know me by now!
  2. I don't post often, I had this issue with my 2015 Silverado and now with my 2019. After the software update the it stopped for a while and now it's doing it again. If the truck sits long enough to cool off it stutters usually soft but on occasion it hits kind of hard. It's loud enough where it scared a neighbor kid who was headed to the bus stop before the lock downs. Honestly that's the only issue I've had in the 23k miles I've put on it since July 2019. Since the update it hasn't done it after idling which it did a number of times before the update. I don't post often, I had this issue with my 2015 Silverado and now with my 2019.

  3. It's inevitable that electrification will take over as technology becomes more and more efficient. If Tesla is able to pull off a 500 mile range on a loaded semi you better believe trucks and SUV's will follow. In the next year or so there will be enough of a battery breakthrough to tip the scales in the industry permanently. Yes Gas can be more convenient because there're stations everywhere currently. Charging at home is more convenient than going to the gas station for daily commuting. Consider 1 in 5000 homes having a charging station, gas stations could never outnumber charging status again. Now you can charge at a friend or family members home and the system charges you not the home owner. I drive 130 miles a day Tampa to Orlando and back home this costs me $400 a month. If I install solar at $100 a month with about $0-50 paid to the electric company when if I use more than I produce, money I would be spending anyway. Without adding solar it will cost $45-65 per month to charge an EV pickup. Still a savings to me each month and the convenience of not have to go to a gas station. What would be more ideal for Truck folks that never plan on switching. A robust hybrid system that isn't sub-par. A small engine that charges a battery system like Tesla's battery bank. This would provide the range, instant torque, technology and power that people want without the anxiety of going fully electric! This system would need to pump out about 100-150 miles per gallon. Quad motors no drive shaft or transmission off setting the extra weight. Solar roof for basic systems, HVAC, lighting, instrument cluster. I know hybrids exist but most of them suck and engineers weren't really pressured/allowed to make something great. At the end of the day ICE are Blockbuster Video and EV's are Netflix you know the rest. If you haven't drove a Tesla you'll never understand why instant torque is fun as hell not to say good old gas isn't.
  4. I know never to get a first year model of a next gen vehicle but I did it anyway! I was happy with my 15 Silverado not one issue other than I should've got a higher trim level and crew cab. It was my first pickup and I loved it. Fast forward to July I picked up a 19 put 19k miles on it since then and my pads don't even register anylonger just failed message. I'm going in tomorrow for all of the recalls that should've been taken care of when I got my last oil change. I thought I was going crazy I've never had to replace pads on a vehicle before 45K miles, I drive hard but my last Silverado hit 65k before the pads needed changing. We'll see what they say tomorrow! 15 Silverado Blackout Edition double cabl 4.3L V6 19 Silverado RST Crew cab 5.3L V8
