  1. 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.
  2. LOL I suppose so. I must only frequent the fancy-pantsy gas stations
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Every time I fill up my wife's car, I swear I'm going to buy a fast cap for it. I love it.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Hmmm. I thought that was for the windows.
  10. You could always measure the truck . . . Seriously though, I always use the radio antenna trick also. And I know that I'm taller than my truck, so if I can walk in, so can the truck.
  11. I don't like this. When the doors are locked, I don't want them to open. Ford vehicles would always open when locked, and I never liked that about them. What if my toddler tries to open the door more than once? In a day and age where there's a warning to look in the back seat, you'd think they'd not allow the kid to open the door. Now it's possible that the back doors don't do this. I haven't tried, and neither have my kids!
  12. That sucks. What is included in the "basic plan?" Just the diagnostics?
  13. What have you done to your K2 today?

    Heavier pockets? I would guess lighter pockets
  14. Plugs for those ugly round tubes

    I bought mine off Amazon also. Just remember that they come 4 in a pack, not 2! I bought an 'extra' set and the return shipping cost nearly what they were worth.
  15. Really??? I wish my 17 had auto up on the other 3 windows. Maybe I need to mess with this some more.
