So record it next time it happens and show it to the Service Manager. Drop it off there and tell them to give you a loaner until they figure it out. Tell them you don't feel safe driving it. Call GM and let them know also. I don't understand why people just take the first BS excuse dealership tell them and leave without a fight.
Hmm I could have sworn I saw something on their website and it says it does both. I could be wrong, but I was pretty sure I saw it somewhere. If I am wrong, I apologize. I would call them to confirm
I honestly don't think the ride is that bad and I have a trail boss with very knobby tires. I came from a newer 4runner and the ride quality is about the same honestly and I'm very picky on ride quality.
So two different things I am noticing with the way my transmission is shifting. First, multiple times now as I am slowing down for a red light, the light will turn green before I am fully stopped and I will give the truck gas to get moving again, and it hesitates pretty bad. It'll barely move. I have to press on the gas pedal hard to get it to start moving again. The second thing I have noticed is when picking up speed from a full stop, I feel as if the truck is "spuddering" along. It doesn't feel like a smooth transition between gears. I can only describe it as if you're trying to run and a buddy keeps taping you on your back and pushing you forward as you're trying to run. I am thinking it's either the transmission or maybe its the knobby tires I am feeling as it's picking up speed? On the highway it's great, but around town this truck does not like to coast or move slow. I can feel almost everything this transmission does around town. I have also tried using it in L5. It feels better, but the above two things still happen. I have the 5.3 with 6spd. It only has 900 miles on it.
I had the same problem with mine since day one. It was not opening at all. I had to forcibly wobble the tailgate while pressing the button. It was getting stuck on the locking mechanism somehow. Took it to the dealer and they lubbed everything and it seems to be fine now. They said it just needs to "break in" haha it's a new truck, that should work since day one.
