truckofwinandawesome replied to Zane's topic in The Newsroomthere is actually a perfectly good reason why: PROFIT. they make the work trucks as ugly as possible to try to push you the high dollar trim levels (preferably the High Country/King Ranch/Denali for maximum profit) to have better looking sheetmetal.
At this point in time, we aren’t even a Constitutional Republic, we are a Plutocratic Oligarchy! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
truckofwinandawesome replied to Zane's topic in The Newsroomhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qn977W9HjWM that is my reaction to the Silverado HD, the High country looks much better though.
Ladies and Gentlemen, our prayers have FINALLY been answered! It might be a riced up drift truck, but it is a start! It would not take Turn 10 very much modification to turn this drift truck into the Silverado we all know and love! Perhaps in an off-road expansion, we can get the shiny new 2019 Trail Boss, the Regular Colorado ZR2, and the hot new ZR2 Bison! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
actually, it was the Diesel tax that jumped up 14.1 cents; the French drive more diesels than gasoline cars. can you imagine having to pay nearly $7 to fill up an HD truck? the US would GRIND TO A HALT in protests!
I’ve heard of a Tesla Supercharger, there is one in my town; but before Tesla can be taken seriously as a mainstream automaker they need to address three things that are very well documented: 1 is their stance on Right to Repair. More and more of their cars are coming off warranty and the owners are finding out that parts and service are obscenely expensive and that if you wrecked one, Tesla will act like that particular VIN doesn’t exist anymore unless you pay a kings ransom to “certify” it. 2 is the amount and location of their “stores”, take Tennessee for example, there is only one store and service center in the ENTIRE state, and they are located in the wealthiest county in the state (Williamson County). If you look at other locations, you will find this exact same pattern of being located in very wealthy affluent areas. 3 is that we were promised a $35,000 Electric car, and they delivered something that is twice the price and with half of the quality that has to be assembled in a TENT. 5.5 MILLION square feet of factory space and they can’t utilize it for crap! Tesla is not a mainstream manufacturer, it’s a boutique brand that is a green status symbol for the rich. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
truckofwinandawesome replied to Zane's topic in The Garagedid you guys ever take delivery of her? the threads have gotten pretty cold as of late.
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsroomand of course, buying the Acadia means you get Top Quality Tennessee Craftsmanship from the Men and Women of Spring Hill Assembly!
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomActually to be more accurate, the Ridgeline is identical to a Honda Pilot from the B-pillar forward; much like how the GMT900 Avalanche was identical to a Tahoe from the B-Pillar forward. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
truckofwinandawesome replied to Zane's topic in The GarageI agree; they must be waiting for enough trucks going in the same direction. with the amount of distance Baby Blue has to go, you can pretty much guarantee she's traveling by rail. (with the way Norfolk Southern works, they want a FULL train going east.)

truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsrooma quick trip to the Local Dealership's website, and the VIN Code for China is "L"; The "L" probably stands for Lethal; as most Chinese built cars are. (cars like my Aveo, and the Spark built at the Bupyeong plant in Incheon, South Korea start with the Letter "K")
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The Newsroomfrom what I gather, Spring Hill is at capacity building XT5s and Acadias (both LHD GMCs and RHD Holdens) as fast as they can; as well as the upcoming Cadillac XT6.
went to the link provided; and surprise surprise, its Carboagez; he marks up 50-100% OVER the retail price at Helm. for example he charges $322 (that includes shipping) for the service manual set for my Aveo; I got a brand new manual set from Helm for $244 including shipping! for my Mom's new (to her) Dodge Journey, Carboagez charges $220 a pop (that's with shipping included) for the repair CD; i got the Repair CD from CHRYSLER THEMSELVES (through their TechAuthority service) for only $163.46! (and that is WITH taxes and shipping included!) because of greedy jerks like Carboagez, its sometimes MUCH cheaper to go through the official channels to get service manuals!
truckofwinandawesome replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomFrom what Barra said a little bit after Ford made the announcement that they were cutting all of their car lines, GM has invested too much in their small cars to axe them now; and when gas prices spike again (and it’s not a matter of IF they will spike, but WHEN) ford will be scrambling to bring back their small cars. My Aveo might have been from the Bad Old Days at GM; but I get 29-30 MPG consistently, and that is WITH DTCs for Evaporative issues, leaking heater hoses, and a False P0420!
