  1. Mid December in SoCal I had to drive 100 Miles to Find mine. they few that were delivered to my area sold the same day. I haven't seen another yet in the Ventura area.
  2. My son is in the process of printing one up for me right now, it will be a two piece (due to the size of his print bed) but it will sit in the slot's on the top part of the console.
  3. Happened to my truck the day I bought it, at the dealership. one of the salesmen and the service guy came out (both owners also) and said they have had the same issue and had a fix/explanation. Not long ago trucks used a key in the column to start the truck and lock the column. Today we have a push button on the dash instead, so the column lock is not the same any longer. the shifter is locked into park instead. Don't grab the wheel as you are getting into and out of the truck and the problem will go away, the pull/tug on the wheel put it into lock. if you forget and do it anyway it will take you turning your wheel lock to lock numerous times and then it will still be difficult to get it to shift out of park. I've trained myself (and my wife) to use the grab handle instead of the wheel and haven't had it lock up since.
  4. Fortunately I didn’t need to do that, the dealership was trying to make statewide #1 and knew I was willing to walk (and had cash in hand). They gave me a better deal on the first offer than I was expecting after a fight.
  5. My wife has the habit of showing crap into the door pockets of whatever vehicle she’s in And it’s a pain in the butt to clean it all out. Used to be trucks had knobs all over to hang bags on, but not any more, so I had my 17 year old son 3D print a solution for my 2020 Silverado, REMOVABLE TRACH BINS!!! I have one on the drivers side & he’s currently printing one for the passenger side. If anybody is interested let me know ([email protected]) with what you think they are worth and I’ll have him get back to you. Each one takes almost 20 hours to print Individually and we’re guessing a pair would take about 24hrs. They are printed using PLA filament
  6. today at less than 2000 miles my 2020's backup camera stopped working, all I got was the warning symbol and a crossed out camera icon in the display. Drove to work and waited 45 min and just went out to check it again and it works now. Any ideas? I don't have the lane departure stuff or forward camera.
  7. 20” Z71. 4x4 no mods, bought her last weekend.
  8. I just did a road trip 400 miles each way, cruise set at 80 on the way there I had 200 miles left on the tank. on the way back cruise set at 72, i had 260 miles left on the tank. the tank is 24 gallons
  9. I picked mine up two weeks ago, 2020 Duramax, RST, Z71, leather, Bose... sticker was 57k paid 48k for the truck out the door tax,title, licence, 6000 mi extended (Zero deductible) 55k.. I'm in California.
  10. mine is a two week old 2020 and I got the update notice, was on a road trip so I'll do it this weekend.
  11. I Picked up my Duramax RST Z71 Crew Cab Short Box on Saturday (30 November), the drive home was just under 100 Miles in rainy day Los Angeles area traffic. if any of you have ever driven in that you know how white knuckled I was the whole trip. the Truck performed perfectly with an average of 28 mpg and a best of almost 33 mpg. I Didn't even turn the sound system on until the day after, I love the Bose 7 speaker setup, even watched Star Wars on Netflix while linked via my IPhone. the park assist is a godsend when my wife drives, I really don't want to replace my garage door. I've still got to get used to the height and larger turning radius over my previous truck (Built 2000 Dakota R/T) but I'm getting there. After researching and shopping online, and in person at non Duramax trucks, I found mine (and no others in the entire state) in Fontana. My local dealer in Ventura told me the truck was sold, so I called myself and made the drive the next day. I'm Glad I did, Rotolo Chevy was a very good sales experience. So far I only have three issues: 1: There has got to be a way to disable the auto shutoff for good. 2: Is the software available to upgrade my infotainment 3+ system to have navigation? if so the dealer parts and service guys don't know about it. 3: What the hell is up with the shift lever getting stuck in park if you accidentally use the steering wheel to get into or out of the truck or bump it a little after shut- off? I'm getting tired of wrenching the wheel back and forth over and over again just to get moving. Diesel on base here where I work (Port Hueneme) is about the same price as mid grade so I'm happy about that, as my last truck got 10 mpg hwy on a good day.
  12. I've got the lighted side mirrors, they don't turn on when moving but will just about blind anybody next to them
  13. Just picked up my 2020 1500 RST Z71 Duramax on Saturday, my shifter (column) gets stuck in park and I have to crank the wheel over and over to get it released, any ideas? Other than that, I love the truck. Got 34mpg in LA traffic my 100 mile trip home from the dealer!
