I have seen that at the dealers as well. Paint protection, Scotch-guard protection, nitrogen tire fill, window tint, vin etching, rubber door guards. And the worst was pin striping. My Jeep Rubicon had a dealer markup, which I had to negotiate.
I use my 40v yard blower to blow out the dog hair and other debris, with doors open. Then use Adam’s interior detailer with a soft rag. Ends up looking like new. I also blow out the door pockets. My 2 German Shepherd dogs shed a lot.
I came from 2 Tacomas, 4Runner and a FJ Cruiser. Love driving my Sierra. Much smoother, easier on long trips, and really comfortable seats. Never had a Tundra, but have heard that they are reliable. Just really like the exterior looks of the Sierra. The Silverado is growing a lot on me too. The interior gets mixed reviews, but I am really happy with it. I would test drive the AT4 and go from there.
My 2020 already has over 10,000 miles on it. One small issue but was fixed with a firmware update. Occasional slowness in getting to the navigation, and slowness in loading the profile. Other than that was been working flawlessly so far. No concerning issues yet. Have had more issues on my wife’s Lexus with 8000 miles.
Same for me. Love the HUD. The only gauges that I really liked were on the Porsche and Cadillac V series that I had.
I have been driving the heck out of my Denali and not one single back issue. Love the seats. I had rented a Tundra and it was brutal on my back as well, took months to recover. My Trax seats are horrible, but that stays at my cabin for quick trips to town. The Wrangler is surprising good.
Every time that I wanted to swap a car, the number one rule is that my wife can drive it. I wanted a Wrangler with a 5 speed, however went automatic and got my wife’s ok to buy. I agree with getting some of the bells and whistles. My wife loves the Denali and feels that it is a nice as the Cadillac that I used to have.
I have been it that situation before. Bought a car that I thought sounded great at the time and ended up with buyers remorse. I remember keeping it for a year and ended up just trading it in. It was not the best financial decision, but in the end was happier. Good luck in your decision.
My question would be, are you trading or trying to just sell the vehicle? If it were me, I would try to keep it and use up the warranty. I would also consider going to another dealer and carmax for a quote on how much they would offer.
I am paying for safety and security. May cancel after my prepaid year is up. It is not set to auto renewal. When I paid for the safety and security was charged $200 for the entire year. Do not see much point in the data plan, as I can use my iPhone as a hotspot. I am sold on Sirius though, do use it a lot.
