  1. I got one of those trucks missing that "chip" although I DID end up getting Sirius--I am still missing other things that were supposed to be on it. (I am confused, though, by the under seat storage and what on earth that has to do with an electronic chip, but . .anyway .. .) Could this be the reason I cannot seem to make this thing go hands free for phone calls? Or maybe that's not the correct term as it does do hands free calls but I cannot tell it to dial/call. I have to pull up the # on the screen and press call .. .
  2. I bought the brown interior sight unseen, too. I chose it because I have dogs and I despise the black interiors for hair . .Ugh. I always got the lighter grey choice, anyway but wasn't really happy to discover this time, to get light seats, I had to get the brown dash/doors. But. . .it's actually nice in person and you really don't notice that it's brown! I had to look a few times to confirm, lol. The quality of the seats, though . .ugh. Really cheap feeling and looking and so is the carpet--I don't know what they did . .the previous years were always nice, this one not so much. I got the SLE and, previously, always paid more for the bucket seats. Apparently you can't do that anymore, so I have that 3/4 thing and I really hate not having the nice console . . and the poorer quality seats. GM does the weirdest things . smh.
  3. My 2021 randomly came without the multipro tailgate. I can wait for one to come in but .. is it actually worth it? Since I'm 5'2" and I need that hand hold in the side rail to help me in and out of the bed . .I was thinking maybe I do need that tailgate simply because the tonneau cover the dealer put on, covers half of that hand hold .. lol.
  4. Just got my 2021 --2500, SLE, 4 x 4, crew. Am I crazy or is this thing freaking huge? Had a 2019, same truck and loved it--excellent drive. This thing wallows all over, doesn't look like it's going to fit in the garage .. .it's just huge. The measurements I can find on the web say it's at least 10 inches longer? Is that really possible? absolutely there is more room in the back seat which wasn't necessary (for me). I'll check again in the morning, but it looks like it's too tall for the garage which housed my 19 just fine. That means I have to find room with the tractor in the driveshed for the winter, geez. Actually not happy about this and sure wish I had known before I purchased . .sadly, I didn't pay much attention. Between the massive size, and the weak brakes . .. Geez, just had another thought--I bet this means I'll have to adjust or sell my horse trailer!! I can't remember if it's at it's max settings as it is, or not. But if I have to put a taller truck under it . . .geez. guess I'll figure that out tomorrow . .And does anyone know why it honks at me when I get in--sometimes?
  5. I despise the bench seat but that's what I've got now as, apparently, you can't get them anymore? I just got a 2021 SLE and ,normally, spend extra to get the buckets--wasn't an option. Super annoying. I really, really hate the bench. Did I say that already? lol. I hate the stupid console and how everything falls out, i hate the look, i hate the stupid hump in the floor that gets covered in dog hair, i hate not having good cup holders. i just hate it.
  6. Mine's not a diesel, but I find the same thing. Frightening. I've had to stop tailgating, lol. Sure hope they fix this, not sure I can get used to it.
  7. With all of GM's supply issues, my new 2500 still has no build date and will be missing some features. I have just been offered an existing 3500 instead, which has all of the features I wanted except for the 5th wheel package which the dealer can install. So .. do I go with the 3500? Really reluctant to go bigger as I was actually considering a 1500 this time .. and worried about classificiations ===you know, when the government decides to make you safety and when they don't, lol. Seems like the weight difference isn't much, but .. .wait for the 2500? or go with this one?
  8. mine will be missing: power slide rear window , XM radio :(, power outletbox/cab, USB port back seat, hitch guidance, in vehicle trailer app, HD radio, rear seat storage pockets, no HD back up cam, garage door openers When stepping up to the SLT, which my dealer gave me a really good deal to do, I'd only gain, somehow, XM radio and then stuff I totally don't need like leather, I think, and seat memory and such. Totally not worth paying more for. If i had gotten the stuff I'm missing--absolutely, lol. But that isn't going to happen because of that stupid chip. The only things on that list that I want/have always had: the power rear window and the XM. I guess I can live without.
  9. Well, I ordered it. I am trading my 2019 Sierra HD for a 2021. I always order them up exactly the same but this one .. due to unavailability of parts??? is going to be short on some things. I could have upgraded to the SLT but I am trying to get this one actually paid for, so . .went SLE again. I was given a pretty long list of the things i WON"T be getting on this truck because of some chip they can't get?? But, really, all but two of those options must be new to 2021 as I don't have them on my 19 anyway. So . .while I feel like a massive purchase like this SHOULD have all of those things .. I can't really miss what I've never had, right?? The 2 things I WILL miss--sirius XM radio, and the power sliding rear window. Love them. APparently can't have them. Although, if I went with the SLT sounds like I could--which makes not a lot of sense to me. If they can still do it with the higher end truck, why doesn't GM reconfigure things so that the other trucks get those options? Why is it always these stupid packages? I almost didn't order but . .. other factors involved. Anyway--also just noticed that the bucket seats aren't an option anymore for the SLE---seriously, GM??? Geez. I always get the buckets. Oh, well. I ordered white again and since I have dogs and black interiors just suck for hair . .I went with the walnut/slate interior. Man, I hope it's not ugly. Haven't seen it in person, but . .brown? hmmmmm Still no power folding mirrors, either, at least not on this truck. Seriously. for 70 grand?? GM is way behind. Maybe they'll magically get whatever it is they need to build it the way I wanted it . .but sounds like we're looking at something like 2022 before they do. If I didn't agree to it this way, it was not likely to be built. Has anyone else run into this? Oh, and, does anyone know if it's taller? I never asked but I heard it's 4 inches longer . .I hope it's not any taller, lol.
  10. My 2019 2500 says "best 12.6" haha. I drive country highway part way (90 to 100km) , and then in town every day (60km, stop lights, traffic but nothing like the "city") ---have to cross town to get to work.
  11. How long has the 6.6 engine been out? Just this year's trucks? Or? What is the gas mileage difference between a 2500 and a 1500? Not much?
  12. and. . .the 6.2 only available in denali. so .. if i did go with the 1500, i'd be looking at the 5.3 which i didn't want--dad's was 5.3 and I never liked it.
  13. so. Dad always said never buy a new engine til it's been out for a few years . .. . and I've been googling these new trucks--they same to have a lot of problems? Engines and transmissions? Maybe this is not a good idea at all? My dad passed on Jan 1st and I'm using his truck as well as mine to trade, putting me in a decent position so that those payments I was making can come into the farm instead now and help with the loss of pensions my mother will experience. But, to disregard his advice on engines. . .seems like I'd be jinxing myself and ending up in a worse situation if I get a lemon, you know what I mean? yikes.
  14. I have a 2019 2500. For a bunch of reasons and a complicated trade situation, I am looking to potentially "downsize" to a 1500 but am wavering when I see the towing ranges. I have 3 horses, a 6000lb trailer, and farm work. This truck also may need to plow (my own laneway only). That said, it sounds like more work than my trucks have ever had to do in reality. They are generally fairly babied but . .I am also going to be the ONLY truck on the farm now, which is new, so it will work somewhat harder. Yes, I tow, but lightly and usually a max of 2 horses. It has had to move hay wagons out of fields. However, this one will also need to be easy entry for my elderly mother in the winter (short, elderly, icy = need for lower vehicle although we will put winter tires on the van, so . . .). I don't think the price difference is huge between the HD and the 1500 but am waiting on pricing. My guy did say it is a 5 month wait for the HD. One of the reasons I'm looking to trade is to get out of payments so if there's a big price difference and a big wait (5 more months of payments on the current truck), 1500 it will have to be .. . . Just can't make up my mind. And, if I did go with the 15 . .6.2 engine? or 5.3?
  15. So, I think I asked before and didn't get an answer so maybe this isn't a problem for anyone else . .. my truck sings. haha! No, really, it constantly makes noise like the wind is whistling thru somewhere in the front. It's been doing it since day one--been to the dealer who fixed a couple things in the grille that were not put in correctly, just plastic turned up instead of down or whatever . .. it seemed maybe quieter but it's so loud again . .. I always have music on so I try not to hear it, but . .. it happens, or at least I hear it, at 40 to 60 klicks. After that, it's likely still doing it but I don't hear it going faster. I swear it's louder at night but that MUST be because there's less traffic. Anyway . . .is this even worth bringing up to the dealer? Does it happen to anyone else? I feel like it's yet another one of those---gee, sorry, I can't hear a thing---situations if I bring it in. It has to go in soon for that rear window defrost thing.
