To give you an idea of, in my opinion, how overpriced Onstar is, compare it to Subaru's Starlink. Wife has a 2020 Subaru Legacy and three years of Starlink is $74. GM's monthly pricing is 1/2 of that. I can't see much difference in functionality between the two and there's no way I'm paying GM prices. Starlink overview
+1 to this^^^^ If you have a reasonably modern Android, a verbal "OK Google" will get you almost anything you want without having to touch any button on the truck. I've almost quit using the GM interface as well. Waze integration in my opinion has made factory navigation a big no go, especially for the money.
Well GM has limited the financial windfall for lease customers looking outside GM. Now GM Financial will only provide a payoff on leases to the customer or a GM dealer. You can buy out the lease and then sell, but you would have to pay tax. No selling to Carvana, Vroom, or another francised dealer or independent. https://youtu.be/sTokIf7yvzw
Happened to notice new PF63 boxes at the local Walmart this morning. Opened the box to find an ecore, so I assume I had my hands on one of the new ones. Didn't notice that it was made in China. With this turn of events I'll be using Wix WL10255's or the NAPA Gold alternative. WIX WL10255
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
