  1. That's a very general question. Reliability can also be viewed as relative (e.g. to other / competing brands). My opinion? Very reliable. My 2005 Silverado LT CC 5.3 has 95k miles on it with never a single problem. Recently purchased a 2019 Silverado 1500 LTZ CC to replace it and my Grand Cherokee Overland, love it so far. However, I also know that all newer vehicles (regardless of brand) have more technology, electronics, sensors, etc. The more sophisticated something is, and the more moving parts something has, the higher the relative propensity for a part to fail during the lifetime you own it.
  2. Here's my input and hopefully it helps. Right after purchasing my CPO 2019 LTZ, I had two symptoms. One was that it felt I was being bumped from behind when I stopped (i.e. hard downshift to first). The second was what felt like rapid shifting twice from one gear to the next, and it would sometimes lunge and buck when shifting. My local dealer did the trans control module update for the first symptom, and that issue is completely gone. They performed a fluid change for the second symptom under TSB 19-NA-121 (torque converter shudder). Shifting has dramatically improved and I don't feel any shifting issues so far. They said to wait 200 miles for it to be completely addressed. Update: Ever since I had the trans control module reprogrammed, I've been getting better gas mileage. With my mix of city / hwy driving, my average was previously 18.8. After a few weeks of driving it after this reprogram, I'm consistently getting 19.3 under the same driving conditions.
  3. Found data on the prior gen trucks, and it ranged from 54 to 64 ft lbs. Feels about right based on removing the bolts, so I torqued to 64 for now. Supposed to get actual numbers from dealer when I take it in next week.
  4. Just installed nerf bars on my 2019 Silverado, can someone confirm the correct torque spec for the body bolts? My searches only found this information for older generation trucks.
  5. For the longest time, I have always replaced just the rubber insert. But over the past few years, the rubber inserts are getting harder to find. And now there are multiple widths. Costs a little more, but much easier to just replace the entire blade assembly.
  6. Just purchased a 2019 LTZ 5.3 with 8 speed, only 5k miles on it. Two symptoms. One is that the trans doesn't shift smoothly. During slow or moderate acceleration, it seems to hunt for or shift back and forth between the low gears (e.g. 2, 3, 4). Secondly, when I come to a stop, it literally feels like someone gently rear-ended me. Called local dealer, they said first step is to change fluid, if that doesn't solve it, next step is to replace parts (I believe beginning with the TC). Think I'll let them do the fluid change first, then maybe try the relearn.
  7. Genuine GM chrome assist steps (side steps, running boards) with black step pads for 2019 - 2021 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra crew cab short bed trucks.

  8. On the 2019 Silverado, the Trailer Tire Pressure Monitor System is a part of the Advanced Trailering Package (RPO code U1D). The package is standard on the LTZ and High Country models, and is available on LT, RST and LT Trail Boss models.

  9. Completely agree that the default for auto-start-stop should be "OFF", but then CAFE wouldn't pass the increasingly stringent EPA MPG requirements, or even better, the liberal-minded EPA would apply some type of "facilitating payment"...
  10. GM PN: 84152501 Four (4) trailer tire pressure monitors that came with my 2019 Silverado that I just purchased (CPO). New, in the bag, never used, and I don't foresee needing them. $100 plus shipping from 77386
  11. While first working the deal over the phone, I asked a lot of questions about the original owner, why he traded this truck with only 5k miles on it, what he traded for, etc. Reading between the lines, I think they gave the original owner a lowball trade in value.
