  1. I had a 17 GMC with the 8 speed and it clunked and clunked and never did seem exactly right, but in '19 RST it has been just as smooth as silk. No issues in over a year. Maybe luck of the draw or maybe they are actually figuring the 8-speed out. BTW sounds like a good deal to me too, and if you are needing back seat room for car seats the new crew cab has tons of it.
  2. Any wreck you walk away from.....all is well. Truck did it's job and GM makes beautiful new trucks every day. And most importantly, as you said, looks like the Good Lord was looking out for everyone involved. Take care and God bless.
  3. I've wondered if it is a regional thing. Almost all the crew cabs in my area (after the initial launch of the 19's which were first made in Indiana) it seems like are a Silao produced truck. Seeing a 1 VIN on a lot around here (North Carolina) is very rare.
  4. First and foremost glad you are okay. Truck looks like it did exactly what it was designed to do. Good luck with the replacement, 2021's are basically here, so maybe you can find a 20 and a great deal or get a newer model year truck with a 21. Trying to make lemonade here, as if it were me, I would want to choke out the loser who did this to you.....but no, no: puppies, and flowers and sunshine. Breathe. Now I feel better.
  5. Multiple Silao trucks since 2011. The first Mexican produced truck I was somewhat leery of, but it turned out to be a good vehicle. To be honest I really haven't had a bad truck with 3 as its origin. It seems like all the crew cabs in my area are almost always Mexican produced vehicles
  6. That has always been my experience with Randy Marion as well. Good prices until they start adding in $1200 for fabric protector, etc. You are running into one of the reasons I typically buy Chevy over GMC, the dealer pool is weak, in my opinion, in our area for GMC. Thought about doing the Laura GMC bit, but just wound up doing a Silverado myself. If you do run across a good GMC experience let us know.
  7. I was intrigued by the RAM 1500 when I purchased in 2019. They build a nice truck with lots of creature comforts. BUT they talk about brand loyalty and trucks, and for me when it came down to the final decision I couldn't go away from GM. I've been driving GM trucks since 1999. Very few issues over the years, and like tdowell, every time I'd read a little about the new RAM on their forums I would get cold feet. Also there is a GM dealership about 1/4 mile from where I work for any potential issues. The nearest RAM dealer, and it doesn't have a good service department, is about 35 miles away.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. From what I can find out, the AC Delco oil is produced by Mobil.
  11. Sounds like GM got a batch of faulty ones.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
