  1. Last couple trucks I’ve had rear defrost comes on automatically with remote start. No big deal, I like my mirrors cleared before I get in. The problem is, If it was snowy and I have any accumulation in the bed, it blows up, hits the warm window, melts, then the defrost eventually turns off and I’m left with ice all over my rear window which would have been clear had it not been for the defrost coming on with the heated mirrors. Take mine away, get rid of the lines on the window and give me solid glass. Save me a few bills at the same time too. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Again, I’m not talking dealer discounts. Those are going to be comparable across the line depending on demand and volume from that dealer. I’m talking GM discounts, which vary depending on the model. 3/4 tons just don’t get them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You just showed an advertised price, which isn’t an out the door real price. On top of that, it’s from the highest volume dealer in the US so they have the lowest prices on all trucks not just the HDs. It’s also 1/2 way across the country from me. It clearly shows in the ad, $1,200 off from GM, for an old body style. That’s the best you can get. And it still isn’t as well equipped as my 1/2 ton. I wanted a 3/4 and like I said, they just aren’t discounted. Look how much they are offering off old body style 1/2 tons. It’s all comparable with dealer discounts. It’s the GM discounts that change and the 3/4 tons don’t have them. Period. https://www.laurabuickgmc.com/VehicleDetails/new-2019-GMC-Sierra_1500_Limited-4WD_Double_Cab_SLE-Collinsville-IL/3488665893 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I wanted a 3/4 ton. GM rarely, if ever, discounts them. At all. I picked up a new 1/2 ton Sierra 6.2, one step down from a Denali. Auto headlights, a/c seats, tow mirrors, the works. LOADED with a sticker of $59k, out the door for $45k. For all you claiming that a 3/4 is the same price, find me a 3/4 ton similarly equipped for anywhere near that.

  5. So a small filter on the one under the intake tube and cap the one in the back? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. The dealer has no control over GM discount offerings. I waited until the 2020 HD trucks came out hoping to find some good discounts on the ‘19s. 0% for 60mo is all there was. Not any better timing than that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ll add my 2 cents. I drive a 2016 diesel 3500 for work. Emissions makes it terribly unreliable. Don’t go diesel. Unloaded, it rides like it doesn’t even have suspension. I just upgraded my canyon diesel, again don’t buy diesel they have issues unless you delete, to a Sierra 1500 6.2. The ride is nice, it’s a short bed. Hard to find regular length beds on the lot but you can order one. Here are the big differences. 2500 gas mileage really isn’t good. The 6.0 consistently gets 12-13mpg in my experience. Payload is much better but normal maintenance is more. Brakes, oil changes, tires, etc all higher price. HD trucks have a better warranty. The MSRP is similar but they never discount 3/4 tons. I just got the 1500 with discounts for $13k off sticker. Same sticker price on the 3/4 I wanted but all that was offered for that was 0% for 60mo. Hard to argue $13k off.

  8. It’s not that much vapor. And a boat is different, the compartment is more sealed and thus needs venting for gas vapors. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hill descent is a button on the center stack, bottom right. Looks like cruise control on a hill. If the button isn’t there, you don’t have it. Only for slow off-road speeds, not highway speeds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I agree. I didn’t think it had limitations. I was quite surprised when it turned off. It did work extremely well until overheating the system (my guess as to what happened). The way up the transmission stayed very cool but the engine ran hot to the point I was worried about overheating. All speeds were done under 20mph up and down. My biggest surprise was the engine getting very hot on the way up and transmission getting that high on the way down. I didn’t need to hit the brakes even on an 11* downhill slope. Engine and trans stock, no the max tow package either. That may have made a difference in the results but I don’t think it would have changed the hill descent overuse.

  11. Brakes didn’t smell at all. Engine hit over 220 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 2018 Sierra with the 6.2 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I tried a long distance hill descent and found after 2 miles, it overheated. The total hill length was 7.5 miles and a drop in elevation of 4,667. I found the traction control would error out after 2 miles. Once it cooled, it would allow activation again. Transmission hit 212* going downhill in 1st. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I live in a very cold environment and don’t have a heated garage. That’s what is keeping me from a catch can. My last diesel blew a turbo because of the CCV. I ended up routing that to the atmosphere and it worked great. Had a lot of blow by so it smelled like oil every once in a while when I came to a stop light but that was the only time I noticed it.
