  1. Ahh, man that's unfortunate. I just looked into it a little bit and it does seem quite a bit harder and tend not to go in favor of the consumer. If they do it on a contingency basis and nothing comes out of your pocket it still may be worth a try.
  2. Contact a lemon law lawyer. 5 attempts is most likely a lemon in every state. Get rid of it ASAP. I had 3 brake failures on my 2019 and 3 repair attempts for the failures I experienced. The dealership experienced one on a repair they did (technically 4 repair attempts which is a lemon in TX) but, did not note the repair on my invoice. The dealership denied ever doing the repair when I asked them to put it on a repair order for me. When I sent them a voicemail they left me stating that the repair did not work as well as forward them an email that was sent from the service advisor that they changed the vacuum pump but I would NOT see it on my repair order the dealership offered to buy my truck back in full because they knew they were caught in a lie and I was going to lemon the truck. I work in construction and need my truck so to save time and hassle I took a 20 on an MSRP swap. So far no issues on the 20. If i have any issues before it's titled they will buy the new truck back in full.
  3. Nice truck, did you re-gear for the 35" tires? If not, is there a noticeable loss in power and gas mileage?
  4. I bought a set, same part #, and unfortunately they don't fit. I don't believe they have made a set to fit the '19 or '20. The M14 x 1.5 is correct but the seat of the lug goes straight into the wheel. It doesn't hold your wheel on in any way. Sent them straight back to Amazon. Edit: They were installed on 18" OEM trail boss wheels and not the 20"
  5. Very nice truck! If you don't mind me asking, what does the monthly plan run for on the tracker? I assume less than OnStar but I may be wrong lol
  6. Thanks for the input guys. I'll definitely be getting the tilt sensor and glass break added for now. I see you guys are in Dallas, is the wheel theft on the Chevy's high there? I'm in Houston and for some reason these guys seem to be targeting Chevy's heavily.
  7. Hopefully that's all it is but did you have them do a water test or did they say if they did? A month after buying my 2019 I would randomly hear water sloshing and could not figure out where it was. At first I thought someone had left a water bottler in the truck or something but never found one. Came out to my truck after a very hard rain and and my driver side mat was COVERED in water. My windshield had been leaking for a month without me knowing it as the dealership said the seal was not completed on the windshield and the sloshing was water in my dash.
  8. Thanks for the info. If I'm understanding correctly, the stock fob is still able to be used? I have never had an aftermarket alarm so I apologize for my ignorance on what the aftermarket fob is for lol. Is it mainly just carried to alert you of anyone tampering with the vehicle? Also, are any of the sensors overly sensitive where they have been triggered by a hard rain, thunder, or anything of the sort?
  9. Has anyone installed an aftermarket alarm system on their 2019/2020 Silverado yet? I was looking to have one installed on my new 2020 after the wheels were stolen off of one of the loaners I had during my repeat brake failures on the 19 but, I'm a little leery to have anyone mess with electronics and programming after going through that. What are some good brands out there, or is Viper the best? I don't want something that is obnoxious and going to be triggered all of the time. I'm mainly looking for the tilt sensor, GPS tracking, possibly window break or just a shock sensor, and backup battery. If I get an aftermarket alarm do I lose my stock auto start feature, the ability to lock/unlock the vehicle by the door handle buttons, tailgate drop, horn, stock key fob, etc. With everything being controlled through phones now days I don't see the necessity in having an aftermarket fob but it appears that every alarm system comes with one. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  10. Anyone still experiencing issues? My third brake failure was on 2/24/20 2 hours after picking the vehicle up from the dealership for the most recent fix. GM had stated that a recall was not reason to purchase the truck back. I agreed that a recall was not but the fact that I was on my third brake failure as well as the dealership experiencing one should definitely warrant a buy back if they were truly concerned about their customer safety as well as the safety of everyone else on the road. The dealership finally agreed to an MSRP swap or trade in value of what I purchased the vehicle for on a vehicle off one of their Ford or Ram lots since GM was of no assistance. For times sake, I agreed to a 2020 and I truly hope I don't regret it. I feel like I'm playing Russian roulette. They will take the vehicle back in full if I have a brake failure before it's titled so I'm going to drive the hell out of this thing for the next 2 weeks.
  11. Do you happen to have the paper work showing which update you have? If you see my post above, the newest fix does NOT work. I picked my truck up today at noon after the dealership received a new EBCM, programmed it with the most recent fix, and test drove it for two days. I had a brake failure within 2 hours.
  12. It is NOT fixed. Picked up my truck today only to have another brake failure! I will likely be filing a lemon law suit at this point.
  13. Finally, someone else with the same issue as me. I'm also one of the few who have never used the apps to auto start, nor did I have the recall performed in mid December that GM is alleging was part of the issue. GM is blowing smoke on what caused this brake failure 'cause they don't have a clue. My senior GM advisor has ignored me for a month since I have questioned them on the cause of the brake failure and have let them know that what they are stating caused it has absolutely no correlation with my truck and its brake failure. Sadly, it seems most people are accepting the $&*# GM is spewing regarding the brakes.
  14. Does anyone know if there is a history log where past error codes have been stored that GM can access and if they are time stamped? My truck is still sitting at the dealership with brake issues. Now the dealership is acting like my EBCM was just bad and there was nothing wrong with the programming. This was with PIT 5728B installed on the module. I know this is not the newest "fix" for these brake failures. There were 3 error codes before the dealership cleared them, one being brake module system malfunction. Once these were cleared 4 new error codes were thrown showing that the update was not installed correctly on the brake module. They are currently waiting for a new EBCM to come in and will be programming it with software from the last recall my truck was included in. My truck was not included in the 1/30/20 or 1/31/20 recall for an updated fix as I never had the recall performed in mid December that they are alleging was part of the cause for brake failures. If it's possible I would like to get a history report on what those codes were because the dealership is less than forthcoming with information for me.
