  1. I have leased a lot over the years. Currently though all owned. If you are a person who buys a car/truck and really looks after it and plans on keeping it then Buying is a no brainer. But if you simply look at a car/truck as a mode of transportation and 2 or 3 years is as long as you want to keep it, and enjoy always driving something new, then leasing is the way to go. Never lease for more than 3 years max, or you may as well buy it. Also with a 3 year lease you always have warranty. Also when I have leased I have done it with no down payment and the lowest possible interest, last one was 1%. I have also leased with the intention to buy out the lease at the end. Have done this a couple of times. Good thing about this method is that the payments are usually less to lease. And if it is a company vehicle were you can write off the costs then leasing also makes sense. Lets face it. With cars and trucks getting to be so expensive,(as much as my first house) people are doing what they have to do to drive a reliable vehicle, and they are likely never going to own it anyways, a monthly payment is in their budget and always will be.
  2. Tilt steering in the new trucks is my pet peeve. As others have said for $70,000 you would expect power tilt with memory. I have no issues though with the rest of the interior. I am glad that the 2020's get the full range of engines in the Chevys. How long til Chevy can get the GMC tailgate. That will be a add on in the future. Or maybe a black market item. I am sure it won't be long until someone on here swaps a GMC tailgate onto his Chevy. Keep your eyes on the Auto Wrecker websites for tailgates.
  3. Really makes you wonder how GM can build an electric car but they can't get a simple circuit like this right. These heated rear windows have been around forever.
  4. On a Google search it says that 160,000 plus trucks are affected by this recall and that the fix is going to be to replace the rear window. This will be a slow process I am sure.
  5. Yeah I got it too. I think this is going to end up the same way as the Heated Washer Fluid recall did several years ago. It will never get fixed. Do really think GM is going to change hundreds of thousands of rear truck windows. I will believe it when I see it. I am also assuming that the heated mirrors are also disabled when the fuse is pulled??????
  6. I would not buy a new car or truck anymore without clearbra installed. It is as simple a s that!
  7. If the deal is right and it is what you want to do to get the new model then I say go for it!
  8. You could likely get someone like Emblem Pros to make you a custom badge. Do the plain jane trucks just have a plain black cover? Other than that you would have to cut it out of the fender, weld in a metal piece, do body work and repaint. I think myself I would just leave it alone. imo
  9. Hopefully the tilt steering wheel is at the top of the list. I think of the auto tilt system in my 2017 Tahoe and in fact my 2002 Corvette and then GM puts something from a Cruse in a 70,000$ truck. Get with it GM!
  10. Another thing that is common to both trucks is that they are built on the same assembly line.
  11. Not in the market for any of these and don't expect I ever will be. Chevy/Gmc trucks til I die! haha
  12. I had a service yesterday and they wanted to unhook it but I said leave it alone. I hardly ever use it anyway.
  13. I personally love the new truck interiors, But that cheesy tilt steering mechanism is right out of a economy model.
  14. Yes! We certainly need pics ASAP! Welcome to the website.
  15. Hard to get them out completely so your only real option is to mask them. On my 2014 Sierra I had very good luck using some of my Harley Davidson leather black on boot marks on the lower door panel. Work it into the scratches and buff off. I have also had very good luck with black liquid shoe polish. And also brown liquid shoe polish on my Tahoe. The idea is that you are kind of re-dying the scratch. Also I have used Maguiers Leather cleaner and shine and it masks them as well. My 2 cents.
