Hopefully they fixed these design issues on the new trucks. Been thinking about upgrading to a 2019 but GM keeps trying to save $$$ with cheap design/engineering. There shouldn't be a need to disassemble the entire front end to change the condenser. Just poor design/engineering and we end up paying for it. In my case, it will cost me over 1k to fix it. And just to think that my extended warranty expired 3 months ago.
I'm aware of the condenser and evaporator issues that these trucks have. However, I believe I'm having a different issue in my truck (2014 5.3 LTZ). In the mornings the ac works fine, its cold and i use it on minimum fan speed. But starting a couple of days ago, in the afternoons (~100F), the air coming out of the vents is warm and the cabin dosen't cool down. Any idea what may be causing this? I already checked the cabin filter and the ac compressor is kicking in (so i assume its not a freon issue). So not sure what else to check. Any advice/help is appreciated.
As I was adding gas to my truck today, i noticed that the tanked moved when i placed the handle in. Hopefully someone can give the part number or name for the part that's missing where the tank connects to the body (by the fuel door). Thanks in advance!
Dont think anyone will be buying this one. $444k is a little too much. https://www.dennisdillongmc.com/VehicleDetails/new-2019-GMC-Sierra_1500-Double_Cab_Standard_Box_4_Wheel_Drive_SLT-Boise-ID/3347519013
+1 On the jump seat. It gives me one more seat to put the kids in when they are fighting in the back. Do i use it all the time, no, but its available when needed. Been looking at upgrading to a 2019, but don't think Chevy offers a universal remote (garage door opener) in a jump seat configuration. In order to have it, i must upgrade to bucket seats.
We went to the car show this last weekend and compared Ram vs Silverado. We looked at the Ram Limited first and all I can say is that if felt sad sitting inside the High Country. Even my kids asked why this new truck (HC) had the same interior as our current truck (2014 LTZ). One of my friends just bought a Ram and if he dosent have any issues, I will be buying one too later this year.
Normally, the key fobs have a real key inside of them and the vehicle has a place to insert this real key. I wonder if the truck will still turn off if the real key is inserted?
Originally, they just replaced 2 but light came back on, so the replaced the other 2. Overall, i had to take the truck 3 times to the dealer to get it fixed. And guess what, they tried to blame the K&N filter for it. At the end I agreed for them to put a new one in.
So I had a check engine light popup a week ago and dealer replaced all 4 banks of sensors and the catalytic converter, totalling over $1,500 in repairs (covered by extended warranty). Truck has almost 70k miles and the extended warranty is good for another year and/or 5k miles. With this in mind, have you guys had any major issues on your trucks between 70k and 100k miles? I'm not totally convinced with the 2019, so I'm thinking about keeping the truck until the next Tahoe comes out.
