Vehicle prices are out of control.
Cadillac Escalades have hit the 100k mark as well.
 
I remember when i worked for myself and had a mobile paint business seeing the 1st and 2nd gen escelades sitting on the lot with a sticker of upper 40k to low 50k and thinking holy crap that's ridiculous. I was beside myself. Of course this was 1999 then early 2000's but still was a expensive then but at near 100k now is just absurd...

Times are changing, with being pushed to give higher minimum wages as well as all the extra perks there’s no telling where it’s all going to. My 18 SLT Sierra sticker price of 64k, wth! I’ve decided that I’m going to just keep it, make it the way I want it and keep it for as long as it’s drivable cause I’d rather buy property, invest in my family and travel Europe then pay these ridiculous prices in order to get to from point A to point B. These new HD’s look like headaches waiting to happen with all that new technology.

I once asked a good friend of mine why he doesn’t get new cars and always drives his older cars and his response was great. He said, “I’ve got lots of money because I don’t throw it away on things that depreciate. I put money into the future of my family and not the future of the bankers and auto manufacturers.” Wow

If only our wages grew at the same rate along with the "inflation" we would be laughing eh? 

 

New features are cool, the "invisible trailer view" requires mounting a remote camera on the rear of the trailer to operate, so it isn't magic. With certain travel trailers you can even check tank levels, turn on the AC, and check tire pressures with the GMC app. Very neat. Personally I see little use of watching your trailer hitch going down the road, but then I thought about it, it might be beneficial when jack-knifing your trailer into a parking spot with no spotter, might save you a rear bumper or two if you are one of those smash 'em up types.

      2015 chevy 1500.. 3400 miles. A couple of times the heat didn't work. It always did "next time".. the other day I had to take a 3 hour drive.. it didn't work the whole way there...stopped for an hour..headed back still with no heat (it was 42* so it was not pleasant)
       
      Took to dealer - they said they cant find anything wrong, of course, and of course the he was working fine.
       
      Its only done this a couple of times in the past 2 months now.
       
      Anyone experienced anything similar? It blows out air, and it will adjust the fan speed properly (or what I'm guessing WOULD be properly if it was blowing out heat) based on the temp of the cab. Even when taken off of auto and just turned temp to hi and fan speed up, with AC button off, it was still blowing cold air.
       
      Any ideas? Could it somehow be user error? (doubtful)
       
      Also when the AC button is on, even when its on heat, is the AC really still running? seems dumb that lights always on even when you have the temp high and its blowing heat.
