  1. On bumpy roads, I get "clunk" sounds from the back of my 2021 Suburban. It was particularly annoying went I drove out west this summer and drove some highways with closely spaced joints. It was clunk after clunk. I suspect it is the rear window but, upon inspection, I can't find anything wrong with it. On smooth roads, it is quiet. Anybody else experience anything like this?
  2. I have about 6000 miles on my 2021 Suburban. Overall, I am extremely happy with it. My change recommendation is to make the control center "Home" button closer to the display. When I am using CarPlay and want to use one of the regular control center functions (e.g. camera), I have to go searching well below the display for the "Home" button to get back to the regular controls. This is not so easy when you're driving and trying to maintain control. The "Home" button should be right there and very obvious.
  3. In the past two days, I noticed that the radio in my 2021 Suburban was not shutting off when I stopped the engine and opened the door. In one instance, I shut off the vehicle, locked the doors, went into a convenience store and, when I came back out, the radio was still playing. Today, after similar events, I arrived back home and pulled in the driveway (within my WiFi range) and the display said that there was a software update to perform. I let it perform the update and, now, the radio shuts off properly when I stop the engine and open the door.
  4. My 2021 Chevy Suburban has an SD memory slot in the center console. There is no documentation for it. What is it for? Also, the owner's manual does talk about using USB devices for playing music through the radio. However, when I plug in USB devices (e.g. USB flash drive) with music, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong?
  5. My 2021 Suburban is my fourth generation of Suburban so I'm very familiar with how they drive in general. The new 10-speed transmission was the best upgrade. I am loving it -- especially for towing up hills where it is no longer "hunting" for the right gear -- going back and forth between a gear that races the motor and a gear that lugs the motor. However, in some instances when letting off the gas, I noticed a decelerating effect that I had never experienced before. I wasn't sure if I liked this or if it was supposed to do this. I wondered if this would hurt gas mileage. But, af
  6. I'm happy to report that the dealer agreed to compensate me for this damage.
  7. I purchased a new 2021 cherry red tintcoat Suburban two weeks ago. Today, I was washing and waxing it for the first time. This required standing on a step ladder to access the roof. When I got to the spoiler over the back window, I discovered that it had been damaged and touched up! I can't be sure if this was done at the factory or at the dealer. I'm debating how to deal with this.
  8. Oops. I got the orientation of the picture incorrect. Here is a corrected picture.
  9. Thank you, bbeshoner! You helped me solve a years-old problem with my 2008 Chevy Suburban. It has had this rear left-turn signal problem since way back. I've had it in the shop four times at a cost well in excess of $1000. They replaced the BCM twice and the fuse box twice only to have the same problem reappear. When it failed most recently, I started looking for the problem you describe. I found that the problem centered around a wiring harness behind the under-hood fusebox (toward the driver compartment). When I pushed down on the harness, the turn signal stopped workin
  10. Last month truck had thick blue smoke out of the tailpipe on warm start. Twice in two days, and hasn't done it since. Oil level is fine. Thick puffs of smoke on startup is when my problems started. Get that Range device to keep your engine in 8-cylinder mode.
  11. I found the TSB here: http://www.silveradosierra.com/vortec-5-3l-v8/tsb-10-06-01-008g-engine-oil-consumption-jan-2013-t70745.html
  12. Just for hoots, I rechecked my oil today before I added any. It was only 1/4 quart low! Last night I checked it after driving home from work. I probably should have let it sit longer before I checked it. It seems the fix was better than I thought. 1/4 quart in 2070 miles is not too shabby. I'm going to keep tracking the oil usage. Then, after I have some confidence in what it uses, I will try removing the Range AFM disabler and see what happens.
  13. My 2008 Suburban was consuming 2 quarts in 2000 miles. The dealer upgraded my rocker arm cover, installed the AFM oil deflector in the oil pan and cleaned out the carbon. Furthermore, I installed the Range AFM disabler. Just tonight I checked the oil for the first time (it's been too cold). After 2070 miles, the oil level was in the very middle of the hash marks (approximately 1/2 quart low). I'd say the fixes worked pretty darn well. I consider 2 quarts to 0.5 quarts a major improvement.
