RE: Gap year, family of 6, TV and TT recommendations

...If your frugal and want the best combo for this application and have time to find the right one, 8 lug Van FTW. ... The GM Vans are easy to find. You get an off rental 1 ton with the 6.0. You add the class 4/5 hitch for under $200, and install P3 brake controller. You replace the shocks with Bilstein 4600 for $600 installed, and you are ready to go! All done and ready in a week!

RE: Broken key, locked out of TT, no spare :(

Call an automotive locksmith and he will get in real quick. That may be the direction we'll be going. And I guess I'll need to order a whole new lock and keys and replace it. I went with the number pad lock (RVLock). Made it easier for us and the kids to come and go at different times.

RE: Elon tease -- Tesla pick will look like military vehicle

And some people said they have not seen much of these EV semis and pick ups on the road. Still posting their ignorance that car manufacturers actually want to keep secret their new models. Have you seen the new Suburban? Only covered in camouflage. Next month it will be revealed. And then it will probably be less than 6 months before it is at the dealer. Sounds like GM is keeping their new models secret.

Interesting read on some of the challenges of getting into EV’s. https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.marketwatch.com/amp/story/guid/38AE9CC0-FBFC-11E9-8FA4-88C931E031FB Labeled: OPINION

RE: Ford reaches tentative UAW contract.

I just hope that all the local UAW members now support all the Union Teachers in getting pay raises and no increase to their health care as well. The Teachers gave back and froze salaries just like the UAW members. I disagree. Especially here in Michigan with MTA as a negotiator in contracts. Considering the quality of students educators are turning out here, they need a pay cut not a raise. Just voted NO on the local bond issue. They get enough of my tax money as it is. Show me you can actually educate students to become productive member of society and I'll consider compensating you accordingly. as it stands, Michigan teachers aren't showing me anything but terrible SAT scores and a poor product. I'd like to have had a job where I worked 1/2 the year and got paid for the entire year. Talk about cushy. I wish you would educate yourself on education in Michigan. There are many issues within the education process. Slamming teachers shows me exactly what type of retired union person you are. Hopefully all of those non-productive youngsters do not take advantage of the old guy in the neighborhood.

How's about this one to keep it going... Article: Why I Do Not Trust Tesla's Books So the Q3 10-Q is now published. Looking forward to analysis.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

...Of course there are changes but the Explorer came out when? 1980 something? Now it is just a revamp. A few years to get the bugs worked out? Sound familiar anywhere? ... Time - better stay in your EV space. The new Explorer is completely new. Return to rear wheel drive. So yes, surprising that Ford has this many problems, but the plant personnel may also be impacting the success.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

...I have a little more confidence that someone who was able to land a rocket back into a barge --- when landing Challenger back to an airport is like threading a needle from 10 floors up with the wind blowing --- can solve this problem of range.:) Remember the first EVs had range of 30 to 50 miles? But yes you are correct, range limitations and towing capabilities are deal breaker for us. I have more confidence in an Automobile manufacturer that built EVs in 1996 with a range of 70 miles!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

"Sales have plunged as a plant plagued by personnel problems has struggled to get the new sport utility vehicle out the door. Thousands have been shipped 270 miles away to another .... factory for rework." Tesla? Nope it is Ford with all those manufacturing protocols in place. https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies They all dance on that line. Also noted in the article: "Ford is not experiencing similar setbacks as it begins building a redesigned version of its Escape compact crossover at its factory in Louisville, Ky. LaNeve told analysts the Escape “is a much more normal launch.”

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Semi has its own thread. Is there any GM or RAM news? I think RAM or Toyota will be last to have an EV truck Not even news that they are on development for one. I wonder for Toyota, they were ahead on hybrid -- and suddenly, have had no entry on full EV. Time and Sam - Maybe you blocked me - I indicated last week that it was stated as part of the UAW agreement that GM would build the electric pickup in Detroit-Hamtramck plan. More news today regarding the 2021 plans. I will just let you go find it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

It looks like some flat earthers here are all bent out of shape that the days of rolling coal with GM.Ford and Dodge pickups are numbered.:BSo far there's nothing that shows GM, Ford, and Dodge pickups are in any danger of being supplanted. All I've ever seen of the Tesla pickup are "artists' renderings". Maybe another few years and it will actually show up IRL. And a few years after that it may be able to actually tow a large 5th wheel. But I ain't holdin' my breath. Or, now that there is a tentative agreement between the UAW and GM, supposedly stating that the Detroit-Hamtramck plant will build the electric pickup, we will be able to drive an ICE, Oil-burner, or battery pickup that is assembled in the US and have service across the US as well.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla is light years ahead of the old car companies like GM.Ford and Chrysler in the software that is in the future of transportation. Tesla V10 First Impressions! I think you may have sipped too many beverages as well. Remember, the old car companies develop and produce many vehicles. Unfortunately, the stock market likes to invest in high risk. Each of these old car companies need to balance their spending, and none play marketing hype with future product. Software salespeople always tell you anything is possible, and will sell you the deal. FMVSS are real, and must be met.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I can't wait for the end of the 1/4 numbers! :BNumbers might be good. I had expected a drop in 3rd qtr and now this: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla-surges-musk-tells-staff I assume Semi is still on schedule for end of 2020. I hope that the SEC monitors all trading of stock for any employee. This would appear to be significant, non-public information regarding company performance, and would then result in insider trading. Tusk continues to not understand laws and integrity. Additionally, it is more important to know what countries the vehicles were sold in, and the full 10-Q. His one page never discloses footnotes or relevant transactions.

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

I don't beleive you could get a 3.42 in a gasser 3/4 ton. That would make it largely worthless as a heavy duty truck unless strictly for hauling 3-4 or a ton in the truck bed. It wouldn't pull a ..........nevermind, my dads old saying for this isn't family friendly! So I drive a worthless to you 2017 Express. It has the 6.0/6L80/3.42 combination. My trailer empty is 8200. I frequently take my own 80 gallons of water. I tow this in Michigan. There are not mountains. It gets me where I need to go. I might not win the races, but it finishes just fine.

Still bringing nothing on the table of substance but a heckle? Cricket? Uhhhhhhhhhhhh..............................Yep. BTW, why are you still not arguing with SB about taxes? LOL. He is still trying to figure out how to clean up his post that INCORRECTLY said GM invested in Rivian now that he understands that others are correct, and he made the mistake.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Amazon and Ford (in partnership with GM?) are investing into Rivian. I hope they can come up with a pick up that can compete toe-to-toe with Tesla. Amazon's technology will be a big boost to them. I just don't know about battery technology with the industry saying Tesla is decades ahead. Musk needs to eat some humble pie. Every time he opens his mouth, my portfolio gets a haircut. GM did not invest- Fact Industry says Tesla is decades ahead - Do you really agree to that? You think that it will take everybody else more than 10 (or 20 since it is plural) years to have the comparable battery technology? Your investments show in every post you make. Things don't just get true because you say so! Where do you people live that even internet news don't reach you in time?:E:h:S:D;) GM and Amazon Invest in Rivian Talk about getting caught without your pants: True Facts 1 True Facts 2 True Facts 3 I hope you learn that "in talks" does not mean signed agreement, money exchanged, etc. Enjoy the weekend, and look for some pants that stay up!:)

RE: When are those new GM suvs going to be revealed?

I have seen several in heavy camouflage on the public roads. The earliest a 2021 can be sold is January 1, 2020 according to EPA rules. There is no North American International Auto Show in January 2020 in Detroit. So not sure if they will release at another show, or do a standalone like the Corvette. So I do not know, but put some other facts that may play into timing.
