  1. This happens to me every 50th time or so. Not very often, but enough that I've noticed it.
  2. You can't "mirror" the screen on the factory equipment. You can use any Android Auto App in the newer trucks, but that's about 6 apps in total. Still a nice feature, but you can't play a video on the screen from your phone.
  3. It's doable on later trucks. Maybe '15 and up?
  4. Crew cab vs double cab

    I have a kid in a rear facing seat and a kid in a front facing seat in my crew cab. I'm a tall fellow, but I wish there was MORE legroom for them. I have to slide my seat up further than I'd like to get the car seat in. I have no experience with a modern double cab, but I know a front facing carseat barely fits in the backseat of my dad's 2005 Chevy extended cab.
  5. Idiot scratch

    That's why with any vehicle I buy, I curb it, throw some branches in the bed, and drive close to semi-trailers. Just to get it over with . . . Seriously though, that sucks. Sorry to hear that.
  6. With the GMT900's you could check a digit of the VIN. Not sure if that's true of the k2's.
  7. I'm glad you posted this. I was disappointed I could find a Flex Fuel truck with the options I wanted when I got mine. I will read those other linked threads.
  8. LOL I suppose so. I must only frequent the fancy-pantsy gas stations
  9. Do You Wait For The Oil Change Reminder In Your GM?

    You mean like my mechanic uncle, who just "knows" anything over 3K is "bad for the engine." The chemical engineering degree he has and the time he's spent in the GM engineering labs must really add up.
  10. There's states that don't have the trigger lock on the pump? I've fueled up vehicles in probably 15 states and never seen that.
  11. First thing I did with this last truck was get the Access cover put on. It is that great. I was disappointed how much dust got in it and water. A unacceptable amount. I found a sealing kit online, and it helped tremendously. Now, even through a car wash, it stays pretty darn dry inside.
  12. Every time I fill up my wife's car, I swear I'm going to buy a fast cap for it. I love it.
  13. Way too much for a 3 or 4 year old truck. I don't know you or your situation. but it worries me that you say "all I can afford" and "can't get financing anywhere else" and "dream truck" and "want to look flashy." Don't do something stupid and put yourself in a bind. Either buy less truck or wait a year. You could probably get a lot better deal on a K2 once the '19's start showing up on lots.
  14. Child security locks. Which are wonderful when adults sit in the back. It's not a big deal and I should test this before complaining too much. It's just weird when you can open locked doors. But I guess locks are technically to keep people out.
  15. Hmmm. I thought that was for the windows.
