  1. I don't have a Sierra, but I do have the power up/down tailgate on my LTZ (non Multi-Pro obviously). It works with zero issues. I do notice seepage in the bed after moderate amounts of rain, but with what I keep back there, I am good with it. I think I got mine on Amazon for around $450.
  2. The middle range of the trade in (very good, not excellent condition) is $37,851, with the bottom being $36,343 and the top end being $39,358. I'm pretty sure it won't be worth it to me, but as you said, if there is a time, it could be now, or possibly in the coming month or two. I will probably speak to the dealer next week just to get some preliminary numbers. I think I will know my answer fairly quickly after that.
  3. Most of the time in low gear, pretty much below 25 MPH. Hard shifts, some harder than others, but annoying enough to make me think about trading it in.
  4. Hey All, Looking for positive/negative feedback on trading my truck in. I've had the truck about 8 months and put about 13k miles on, 2019 LTZ with most of the option packages. I love everything about the truck, except for my clunky 8 speed. Two dealers have indicated that the transmission is working like it is supposed to. The only money I have really put into it is a Tonneau and Husky Mats, which would transfer to a 2020. I also partially regret not waiting for a 2020 simply for the adaptive cruise control, since most of my miles are highway. The truck stickered at over $55k, and after rebates and TTL, I think the total was around $47k. I put $5k down plus a $1500 trade in, and financed the balance with my interest at 2.9%. I think I still owe about $38k, which is about what KBB shows its value is. My question is, how big of a hit would I take to trade the vehicle in now in order to hopefully get a 10 speed with ACC? With everything that is going on, I know the dealers will be incentivized to move trucks and they are even advertising 0%. In reading the forums, it seems like numerous people trade their trucks in after a very short period. Is it possible to upgrade to a similarly loaded vehicle while keeping my payments the same, or less? Is there anything I am missing in my math? What is the incentive for the dealer, besides moving a unit? It seems like it could be doable, especially in a (potentially) recessed economy. Thanks in advance!
  5. This was my reasoning as well. I don't really care if others think it is "less" of a truck either. I bought it for how I planned on using it.
  6. If I put the Bilstein ride height adjustable shocks on (when they are released), am I potentially looking at some of the same issues with level kits that are being discussed? I would assume not, but asking just for clarity.
  7. Steve with the garage flex of the week
  8. All, I reached out to Bilstein for an updated date now that we are into the new year. Their response..... "We are estimating by the end of 2nd quarter" And the wait continues........
  9. Thank you, good info. I looked back at my notes, and the quote for the 2 inch level with alignment was $399. So, ~$220ish for the parts, do you have an idea of what the quoted install time is for the labor charge, or is this something simple enough that I can do in my garage? I would assume the labor charge would be at least two hours, or another ~$200 on top. Is an alignment still necessary on top of that? Sorry for all the Q's, but this just seems like a better bang for my (400) buck(s). Thanks for the help!
  10. So, I was quoted something like $350 for a 2 inch front level with alignment. Will these new shocks do the same? How much more $ are you talking? I have no problem waiting if that is the case. Thanks for the info!
  11. In the main app screen, look for Driving Activity. It's the 5th one down the list for me. Then you can click around to look at driving stats by trip, day, week, month.
  12. I agree. I just like to review when I have a few minutes. Does anyone know how either metric is defined? I know when I worked at a trucking company 10 years ago, I thought it was an increase/decrease of greater than 7 MPH within 1 second. Not sure if that standard has changed or what GM uses.
  13. Just curious what other drivers hard brake and hard acceleration stats are per the MyChevrolet app. In about two months of using the app, I have 16 hard brakes and 32 hard accelerations in 3700 miles, or one HB every 230 miles and one HA every 115 miles. My wife has earned a couple of these, but I don't have the time to log who is earning what. I like to think I drive my truck with a light right foot, but am curious to see some stats on other drivers, especially some of the hard acceleration numbers on the 6.2 guys. The majority of my hard accelerations are from pulling out of my neighborhood onto a 60 MPH road, where most routinely go 70+. What are you best (worst) scores?
  14. Found an odd glitch (odd to me at least) this weekend. When I was looking at the 400 mile MPG on the DIC (as I was approaching 400 miles on my tank), I was seeing 22.1 MPG. When I scrolled up to the trip meter, those same 400 miles since my last fill up were showing 22.6 MPG. I would think a tenth or two falls into a margin of error, but a .5 difference seems large to me. The pictures were taken less than 30 seconds apart (within the same mile as you can see). Do you think there are any other reasons it would be so off? I realize it is only 2% or 3%, but it just seems like a lot to me. There are probably a multitude of reasons why, but I would think that GM would have had these values synced some way. Either way, not complaining at all with either 22.1 or 22.6, I just found the discrepancy interesting.
  15. I picked up my 19' LTZ during Labor Day weekend. I noticed it on mine within a few days and have been dealing with the dealer on it. They indicated GM was well aware and working on a program update. Reached back out in October and they indicated the strike put everything on hold. Spoke with them again last week and they said they heard rumblings of a program update in the coming weeks, but committed to nothing. I plan on reaching out every month until a repair is made. I assume, if no fix is made available, I will start raising hell in Q1. Not sure what options I would have, but might start with a lawyer. I have all my calls/texts/emails documented on my end. It's a PITA for me since I drive in rush hour to and from work, it damn near feels like your being rear ended sometimes. It is the only thing on the truck that I don't like. If and when it gets fixed, I'll go back to a satisfied customer.
