  1. Engine Oil Additives are Big Business. Their claims are very enticing. Even when Oil Additives are proven time and time again to be worthless, people still want to believe that there is Magic Additive. The only ones benefiting from them are the ones selling them.
  2. Its covered by warranty for 1 yr. Could be just a loose plug?
  3. In reality, no set date ONLY estimates.
  4. My guess is the truck does not handle well with sport mode and those aggressive off-road tires.
  5. I am looking at a window sticker of an inbound (in transit) Denali Ultimate with a sticker price of $86,245. I called on this truck last Friday, when I found it, and was told its SOLD. CONNECTIVITY & TECHNOLOGY • 13.4" DIAG COLOR TOUCH SCREEN GMC PREMIUM INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM W/GOOGLE BUILT-IN COMPATIBILITY , WIRELESS ANDROID AUTO & WIRELESS APPLE CARPLAY FOR COMPATIBLE PHONES • IN-VEHICLE TRAILERING APP • 3 YEARS OF GMC CONNECTED SERVICES •12 SPEAKER BOSE PREMIUM SERIES • SUPER CRUISE (TM), REQUIRES ACTIVE SUBSCRIPTION; INFO AT ONSTAR.COM/SUPERCRUISE • ONSTAR (R) SERVICES & WI-FI (R) HOTSPOT CAPABLE; SEE ONSTAR.COM FOR TERMS • SIRIUSXM RADIO CAPABLE, TRIAL INCLUDED WITH SUBSCRIPTION SOLD SEPARATELY • ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL BED & INSTRUMENT PANEL • 15" DIAG HEAD UP DISPLAY • REAR CAMERA MIRROR • 12.3" DIAG DIGITAL DRIVER INFORMATION CENTER • KEYLESS OPEN & REMOTE START • WIRELESS CHARGING
  6. I might as well chime in. I have a 2021 Sierra Denali 1500 with Onyx black and its w/o a doubt non-metallic. If it was metallic, it would say it was metallic in the paint name. Ebony Twilight Metallic is another black color that was offered in 2021.
  7. Local dealer had a 1/2 doz of them, all were white and identical. They were parked in the rear lot and had dealer signs in WS, LEASE. I have since seen a few around with a construction company name on them.
  8. Definitely, the trailer tires are junk as most are on cheap trailers. Neighbor said same thing about cheap trailer he got at Tractor Supply, shakes his truck when he hauls the lawn tractor around.
  9. The horn honks when you do that, leave vehicle with fob and motor running, at least mine does. If you have the fob and the motor is running and you walk away, no one can move the vehicle, its disabled w/o the fob in the vehicle. NEVER leave fob in the vehicle, always on your person. Note-If you don't close the door completely, horn will not honk. If left running, it will turn off by itself after a period time (15-20 min?).
  10. In both the USA and Mexico. 1st digit of VIN = 1 USA Made; 1st digit of VIN = 3 Mexico RAM is also built in Mexico.
  11. https://www.fox2detroit.com/news/why-a-jeep-owner-is-sued-after-dealership-employee-was-killed-during-oil-change
  12. Its just another run of the mill oil, one out of many and they all claim to be better than the rest.
  13. Some were built without AFM/DFM active because of the chip shortage. The have all the internal engine parts but lack the proper ECU and associated hardware/saftware to make it work. IF it were even possible, the cost would never = the money saved in fuel. While GM touts the fuel saving it really matters more to their CAFE numbers. Most motorist don't realize any gain because it all depends on how the owner drives.
  14. All GMC............... 2010 never had the rear window leak 2012 never had the rear window leak 2015 never had the rear window leak 2017 never had the rear window leak 2021 no rear window leak in 15,000 miles and 1.5 yrs

  17. Its affecting all of them. Fiend has a 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 and you cannot get oil filters for them. If you can find one (rare) they are selling for several hundred $$, normal is $37. His friend works for the local Furd dealer and this is what Furd says; "Obsolescence pending searching for vendor improvements". Said that's code for vendor cannot get parts to make filter, has a special inner steel core to prevent collapse. No after-market filters available, patent lock.
  18. GM only recommends what makes them money. They cannot dictate what brand of oil you use. The FTC has stated that it’s illegal for an automobile dealer or OEM to refuse your warranty coverage because someone else performed routine maintenance or repairs on your vehicle. Any independent auto technician, a chain service repair business, or even yourself in your driveway are allowed to do routine maintenance or repairs on your vehicle.
  19. Change brands of oil. Not all oil is the same although many think so. https://www.lubesngreases.com/magazine/23_3/a-volatile-situation/
  20. Part of the problem is logistics. Shortage of rail-cars, congestion in the rail system, shortage of truck drivers. Friend works for a major US retailer (truck driver) and the starting salary is $97,500/yr and they cannot recruit enough drivers to fill their needs. To the point they are paying existing drivers big bonus's for referring drivers. The oem's created a lot of these problems by continuing the build vehicles that are missing components and now there are long delays in shipping the parts and the completed vehicles. Its the economy, the climate control zealots are in control in DC and are trying to run the oil companies out of business and that has unintended consequences.
  21. The chance a vehicle ordered on April 4, 2022 already built is none. Saturday is the order cutoff date for the week. So a vehicle ordered on April 4, 2022 at the dealer would not even have a chance of being picked up until the following Monday, April 11 so its not possible to even be in the system till April 11th. Its get assigned a vin when its being built and once the vehicle is produced and invoiced it becomes available to the dealer. DOSP - Dealer Order Submission Process The weekly process consists of 4 stages. 1. Constraints Distribution - Dealers are informed on constraints to review before placing orders. (A Constraint is a limit placed on specific build configurations.) 2. Dealer Order Submission - Dealers can order on Thursday, Friday or no later than midnight on Saturday. (You can submit orders earlier but you don't know the constraints.) 3. The 4-Pass Process - GM will attempt to place each dealer’s orders on Mondays using a 4-Pass process. (At this point a dealer may get more or less than what they were allocated.) 4. Dealer Review - You can review your placed orders for changes or replacements until Tuesday at 9pm ET. That's when the accepted orders are sent to production control.
