You can see my mpg in my sig. I use the aCar app to track mileage. This is my lifetime average. My truck originally came from the factory with 20's according to the options list. When I bought the truck it had 17's on it. I have since put a set of factory 20's back on it. The 20's have knocked the mileage down some. I drive 80+ miles round trip to work and recently bought a Honda CRZ for $3700 to drive back and forth. My truck only gets in town use for the last 6 months and that really has put a hit on my mpg. I have recorded my worst mpg in my truck in the last 6 months just driving in town.
I hope you are wrong. I do however keep up with the maintenance. My 14 has had the condenser and radiator replaced under warranty. I could have done both of those items if I had not had warranty. I'm not too worried about it giving me problems. I have been one that trades pretty regularly. This one I hope lasts me another 5 years.
I traded my 02 Z06 for an 07 Sierra. My Z had about 75k miles on it and had been driven every day, rain, sleet, snow, whatever. Glad to hear the truck is serving you well. The truck was a much better ride for a long commute which is what I was doing at the time of the trade. I did take a hit on gas mileage going from the Z to a truck. I too am looking forward to hearing some 200k mile stories. I think if anyone on here can do it based on their maintenance practices, FL355 is going to be the one to do. He has some strong maintenance practices.
Eddie 70 replied to Mileguru's topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra ModsI always reach up there and turn them to off when I start the truck. I guess it keeps that from happening too. I just did it because I don't like the DRL's. There is a write up somewhere that explains how to remove the spring from the Auto on headlight switch so that it stays in the off position when you put it there.
What kind of issues did you notice when the trans started to go? I change about 1 gallon of fluid every 15k miles. Filter was changed at 65k or so. Currently around 107k miles and trans seems great.
Sounds like you did a good thing by getting in there and looking at everything while you were in there. When I changed the struts and upper control arms, I made sure everything was tightened also. I guess it couldn't hurt to take a look at everything each oil change. However, I didn't mark anything. Good idea. Next oil change, I will do the same. The good part about the Moog stuff, you get grease fittings!!
Had the condenser in my 2014 replaced in the summer of 17 under warranty. I had bought an extended warranty and this one repair paid for the warranty. Been good ever since. At the time when I called the dealer, he said he had 8 condensers in stock. Did I want to come up now or risk missing out. I headed out right then and they took care of me. I don't know if they still are, but they were on national backorder. If you were lucky you might be able to get one from Autozone or something like that.
