My Wingnut was gone, so I just picked something random from my old Photobucket account LOL I currently have 5 vehicles in my driveway. 94 Jeep Wrangler, 2006 GTO, 2012 Rogue (wife's), 2013 Tundra, and 2015 Tacoma (flipping it for family). Tundra is my DD. Life's too short to keep buying the same thing over and over, so I went with something else...At the time, it had the biggest back seat on the market (other than the megacab, but I don't need 3/4 ton) and I had two kids in rear facing seats, so that's what I went with. I'll probably buy a ZR2 Colorado Diesel in the next couple of years, because the kids are now in boosters and I LOVE the size of this Taco I've been driving around.
You guys know that measuring from the fender to the ground is pretty inaccurate, right? Proper way is to measure from the bottom of the WHEEL, not the tire/ground. That way having a low tire (or an overinflated one) wouldn't affect the final number. Not to mention the crazyass amount of difference in like tire sizes from tire brand to tire brand. You have to take into account the wheel diameter (18's will have a different measurement than 20's), but it's much more accurate measuring from the wheel.
Some of us didn't buy a 5.3 BECAUSE of AFM. Oil consumption is a very well known issue with these engines. My buddy's Chevrolet Dealership has been advised to keep quiet on the subject - "unofficially" of course. They are busy replacing lifters. Good call. In the 3 months (and around 4k miles) I've had the Avalanche, I've had to add two quarts. The sad thing is... the 5.3 is an absolutely FANTASTIC engine. It's the AFM components that are failing. Yup...Which is why I'm not too worried about it. I'll get it fixed (under warranty), pop a Mentos, and call it a day. You mean to tell me that GM issues TSB's to work on this, yet GM knows nothing about it. The "Marketing Team" is who wrote that. You'll sooner get a straight answer out of a politician than you will out of any marketing team.

Chimes never bothered me THAT much. But the one in my wife's Camry does. The seatbelt chime is DAMN loud. And it never shuts off. Matter of fact, after about 20 seconds it goes from bing bing bing bing to BINGBINGBINGBINGBING. And that's from pulling her car around back to the shop...30 seconds and I'm ready to stick a screwdriver into my ear.
