  1. Funny when I started my truck yesterday and it told me that I was on the OnStar basic account. Seems to announce it every couple of months.
  2. While this is true I had a 2001 Sierra and when I traded it in with 190,000 miles I never changed any fluid but the oil and never had a problem. There's always an exception.
  3. My 2016 GMC Sierra SLT hit 49K this weekend and I took it in and had the transmission fluid and filter changed and it shifts so smoothly that I haven't put the Range back into the OBD. 8 speed btw.
  4. I just had this service done on my 2016 GMC Sierra SLT yesterday. At first I called around and got prices, 215, 300 and 467. Called the 215 back to confirm that that is the price, even for an 8 speed since the other 2 checked the VIN and he confirmed that it's a flat rate special. When I checked in he says that they only need to flush it for 167. I questioned him and asked if they had the machine to bring the fluid to temp and he was oh yeah. I let it go to see how it would play out. Sure enough I get called out when the tech reaches that part of the service visit and informs him that they drop the pan and change the filter and fluid, just like I tried to tell him. I authorize it and watch the head service tech tell him that the fluid is more than the normal and he says to me again it's a flat rate special and that's what I paid.
  5. They did it for 215 plus tax, but I found it amusing when I got there the "Service Advisor" said they would just flush it for 169. After the guy that actually does the work informed him that it can't be done it needs to be changed he brought me out to inform me and the service tech called him and said that the trans requires a much more expensive fluid, he turned to me and said it's a flat rate no matter what. So it's done for the next 50K.
  6. So I have almost 50K on my 2016 GMC Sierra SLT and since it's a CPO I have a free oil change coming, the brake recall and decided to get the transmission filter and fluid done so I made 2 calls to the local dealers. First dealer tells me $214.99, OK, the 2nd one finally calls back, asks for the VIN and says $467.09. I tell him about the other dealer and he asks if they VINd me. I have an 8 speed and it's significantly more. I then call the other dealer and he verified it's 214.99. I say I have an 8 speed and he says it makes no difference trans service is 214.99. I kept the appointment and will find out on Saturday. I also called the dealership where I purchased the truck and they quoted me $300, so it seems the one is really expensive.
  7. I bought chrome Gorilla locks for my 2016 GMC Sierra SLT with 20" rims, Amazon said they wouldn't fit but they did. Gorilla's chart showed they would. I also saw McGard in black but these are the Gorilla: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00YJJ2BY6/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_o-SpEbZEQ9ZRX
  8. That's what I was trying to say, when I turn on the fogs the other lights come on except for the headlights, as if I turned on the parking lights, but I didn't.
  9. Not on my 2016, all the lights come on except for the headlights, like turning on the parking lights.
  10. Also you have to turn them on every time you start the truck and turn on the lights. It's a GM thing that I don't quite understand.
  11. Just got my latest OnStar diagnostic report and I guess I need to unplug the Range at that time of the month.
  12. As long as the side mirrors still heat up I'd be OK with the rear window fuse being pulled, but I really like the mirrors defrosting.
  13. I bought a 2016 GMC SLT with 42k on it. I noticed that the trans would clunk around town, like it was searching for the gear it should be in so I started to put it M7. It drove better but last week I bought a Range, plugged it in and the truck runs great. No more gear searching, seems peppier and responsive. More like my 2001 it replaced. I'm happy with the Range.
  14. Thank you, I really hate the way the tranny bangs driving around town.
  15. Haha I have an Acura MDX and my GMC LEDs are just as bright. I'm always getting flashed in both vehicles, they back down quick when I turn on the highs.
