  1. To each his own. I'm very shy about letting a dealer or (even worse) a quick lube place touch my vehicles. Took wife's car into Discount Tire last December for a tire rotation and got 4 cross-threaded lug/lug nuts and one lug with no lug nut on it. I haven't used my free GM oil change and probably won't. First oil change was NAPA Synthetic (Valvoline) and I went with the oem AC Delco PF63e filter only because Amazon had them for around $3.99 back earlier in the year. I usually run Wix or NAPA Gold though.
  2. Here's your truck: Just a short drive to Huntsville Alabama and she's all yours..... https://www.landersmclartygm.com/VehicleDetails/new-2020-Chevrolet-Silverado_1500-LT_Trail_Boss-Huntsville-AL/4463236573 Shows to be in transit.
  3. From what I can find out, the AC Delco oil is produced by Mobil.
  4. Sounds like GM got a batch of faulty ones.
  5. If this makes you feel any better..... I had a brand new 2011 Silverado that had a CE light come on within 150 miles of driving off the lot. Sensor had a bad wire if I recall. Fixed the first day afterward and I never saw one again on that truck. Sometimes things happen (or don't happen) at the factory. Good luck.
  6. Had the P25A2 code come up along with the four statements on the cluster, i.e. reduced engine power, top speed 62 mph, etc. This all happened while I had the truck off road and did a shift into low range 4x4. (I have the 2-speed transfer case) Truck currently has 6K on the clock. Took the truck in this past Wednesday and they did the software update that is supposed to fix the issue. Also did the brake wear sensor recall while it was in. Not driving much these days, but all seems to be well. Not sure where this historic code came from. Haven't had any previous warning light issues.
  7. Thanks OnTheReel, Glad to know I wasn't going crazy. Not so sure how durable it will be though. A lot of it flaked off after the first rotation. Thanks for the info.
  8. Thanks Redwngr. 140 was what I put them to. Old intuition said that was correct . Some of the stuff was rubbery and this piece had dried out. Didn't seem to hurt anything, but I've never seen it before. To my knowledge wheels have never been off until today since leaving the factory.
  9. Just a quick question for everyone, did my first tire rotation this morning. Couldn't find it anywhere in the manual, but is the wheel torque setting 140 ft./lbs? Every fullsize GM truck I've owned in the past 20 years has been, but my search turned up nothing. Also there was a substance on the wheel lugs I have never seen on any of my previous Silverado/Sierra trucks. Something like a plastic that had apparently been brushed on the lugs and dried. One such piece fell off. See picture below. What in the world is this stuff? When I'd start the lug nut back on the lug it made for some resistance. Had to be careful and make sure I wasn't cross threading.
  10. Looks like a Ford truck to me. The interior is where I suspect there will be the most changes, but looking back on Ford truck styling they never go too far away from their previous style. Almost always an evolution vs revolution. They'll continue to sell like hotcakes because....... why is it that's the case again? I forget. If they can learn to build an engine without all the issues with chains and tensioners on their OHC powerplants they might have something.
  11. Not a Ford fanboy by any stretch of the imagination, but that is one of the most appealing things about their "new" 7.3 Godzila engine in the super duty trucks. Old fashioned push rod design, no over head cams with miles of timing chains and multiple guides, no cylinder deactivation of any kind, no direct injection- multi port injected. If they weren't so much more truck than I need, I'd be tempted to go drive one. 430 HP and 475 ft/lbs of old school V8 grunt!
  12. I wouldn't say mine is coming apart, but the seam is not even. Poor fit and finish for sure.
  13. Quite a bit of info here: https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/230444-rattle-in-the-rear/#comments
  14. One of the best things I did with my house when we built was to put larger doors in. The garage is 24'x24' but my two doors are 8 feet high and 10 feet wide; we also did 10 foot high ceilings. We weren't that smart, but experience was an effective teacher. Our old house had standard 9x7 doors and I had to thread a needle every time I pulled through the door with my old F150. The antenna would always scrape and scare the crap out of me as well. Hope she fits for you; good luck.
