  1. I was talking with a buddy, just the other day, and saying that my truck has been a pretty good truck. I have the Yukon SUV and I have over 200,000 miles on it now. It's a 99 and I've owned for almost 20 years. I hasn't been flawless, but (overall), it's been a pretty good truck. When I bought it, I would never have expected it to make it over 200,000 miles without a whole host of major issues.

  3. I have the bose audio system in my 2018 All Terrain. I have the XM Radio trial and I have my subscription to Spotify. After about 2 month of ownership I've realized that the XM Radio has significant better quality in sound than using apps from my phone by bluetooth, or apple play. I have adjusted some settings within those apps to play the highest quality yet it doesn't translate as well as the XM Radio. Each time I switch between the two. I have to crank up the volume for spotify and crank it back down when on XM. Anyone else experience that? Any resolution?
  4. Is this normal? Dealer stated this should be fine "fluid & pressure changes maybe" if not that the 3 year warranty will cover it should some failure occur so don't worry. The shutter, I and the dealer felt at follow up visit can only be felt at parking speeds. Backing in and out of parking places turning the steering wheel over the full range. It is felt through the steering wheel. There are other questionable quality concerns already searchable here in topics like the drive train noises etc. (I do believe those are typical after reading through many others concerns that are similar on here) I didn't see much on this one though...
  5. I own a 2014 Chevy Silverado Double Cab 4x4 Z71 and wanted to share my experience as I approach 30K. When I first bought this truck it was great. I like the features, the ride, very smooth driving characteristics and overall design. Then the recalls started and so far I have had four performed that I know of. I also started noticing some issues that made me feel as if the 10K off MSRP I received was not enough of a discount. Below is recap and assessment of some issues I have seen in the last year and a half of ownership. 1. Paint- too thin and the appearance is blotchy, I am currently having some issues with adhesion as I watch the paint peel off the lower driver and passenger door, this will be covered under the warranty according to the body shop. 2. Recalls- mostly minor but I am sure as time goes on these recalls will increase in severity and inconvenience. GM should extend the bumper to bumper warranty, by a certain amount of time/milage, per recall. 3. Vibrations- there are several issues in this area. Tires are number one in my experience, then the v4 AFM mode and lastly the drivetrain are all sources for these vibrations. But if you look at the numbers on this site and do the math this seems to be an issue that only effects .5%-1% of trucks out there. Even with these statistics in some cases the vibrations have been eleminated. 4. Interior- nice to look at and touch but quality is a C+. Constant snap, crackle, pop, sounds heard mostly caused by thermo expansion and contraction. Then there are the rattles that are caused from cheap clips and loose components. One solution is to take everything apart and use dampening materials (carpet padding/expanding foam/electrical tape) to fill in void spaces and eleminate rattles. 5. Electrical- there are inconsistencies in the way the electronics perform. The radio sometimes emits a static/buzz sound through the speakers when I open the driver door. The bluetooth is temperamental, and the security locking feature sometimes has a delay. 6. Powertrain- GM has some work to do here. From the slip yolk clunk to the G80 rearend backlash knock, this area of the truck needs to be refined and shored up. There was also a leafspring knock that I had to deal with for awhile that I resolved by properly torquing the u-bolts. Even with all this I give this truck a "B-" grade. The 5.3 ecotec MGP along with HP/Torque numbers, the 100k powertrain warranty/36k three year bumper to bumper, and overall performance including towing/hauling make up for some of these issues. I would recommend this vehicle to others but if you are looking take your time and test drive this for a weekend and look for these issues. There are some that are better than others and this is the number one thing when looking at MSRP/resale value.
  6. The IQS asks buyers of vehicle less than 90 days old to report problems in defined categories. Over 84,000 owners were surveyed this year. As has been the case in recent years, voice recognition and Bluetooth problems are what owners report most.
  7. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 6/17/2015 In its latest 2015 Initial Quality Survey, J.D. Power and Associates ranks the Chevy brand ahead of both Lexus and Toyota. Chevy improved its number of reported problems per 100 vehicles from 106 to 101. That was enough to pass Toyota and Lexus, who both earn a 104 rating. Buick is in the hunt with a rating of 105. The overall winners this year is Kia (86) among mainstream brands, and Porsche (80) among low-volume specialty automakers. Only Kia and Hyundai are ahead of Chevy now among volume brands.

  8. So I almost exclusively listen to XM radio when in my truck. Lately I have been noticing a slight "clip" in the music when listening to the radio. It's pretty annoying. At first I thought it was a speaker going bad, but It only does it on XM radio. Even more specifically, I can only here it on one channel of XM, which happens to be my favorite channel. XM 37 Octane. There isn't any interruption in the music, but I distinctly hear like a skipping/clipping sound almost like a short burst of static. it's seems random but every now and then I will these little blips. I can notice it during the middle of a hard guitar riff, or while its a lighter acoustic style riff. Also when the DJ is talking. So all sorts of sound levels......... I have played with the tone settings to try and mitigate it, I think lowering the treble seems to help, but I can still hear it. Anyone else get this? Or am I going crazy????
