HISTORY: This past weekend I went down to the family farm to cut firewood. 20K miles on a 2016 Silverado LT 5.3 6 speed, all stock, used 4H on snow and ice, and 4L on 1/4 mile dirt driveway that was a complete sheet of ice. I had to use 4L and kept the transmission in M1 and M2 and let the idle drive the truck because the lane was literally a solid sheet of smooth ice. I did not get above 10 miles an hour in 4H or 4L. An Equinox, Camry, F150 and an Avalon all had trouble getting up/down the lane. The Silverado in 4H and 4L performed impressively well on a driveway that could double as a figure skating rink. All of my transmission shifts were done from a complete stop, shifts from 4H to 4L and back were done in N. No issues. Yesterday I left the farm and about 3 -4 miles into the 80 mile drive home, I caught a glimpse of the yellow Stabilitrak light quickly flash on and off. At first, I thought it was my mind playing tricks on me. A few miles later, it flashed again. It happened several times with no messages displayed on the DIC. The more I drove the more it happened then the "Service Stabilitrak" message began to show. The longer I own this truck, the more problems I see.....drivers seat base- replaced 2x, transmission clunks and harsh downshifts, exhaust flapper valve replaced, MyLink freeze ups/bluetooth connectivity issues, radio reception poor, dash rattle (dealer cannot replicate), G80 clunks and clanks when the wheels spin on snow/grass (dealer says its normal VIDEO HERE ), hesitation under acceleration...and now this.... Here is a video of what I am seeing: SERVICE STABILITRAK MESSAGE VIDEO Anyone else have this issue? Is this something I'm going to have to deal with every time I use 4 wheel drive, then have to pay the dealer to clear/reset the error message? I'm under warranty....wondering if I can buy an extension to my bumper to bumper warranty...at this rate I'm going to need it if I decide to keep this truck. As much as I hate the Furd brand, the F150s seem to be pretty good.
