RE: Found It, What a joke. Buying in 2021 LOL. You can keep it.

So I probably missed the back drop or beginning of the story... but why did you have to trade? Something wrong with the 15 you had? Just curious, cause I hear a lot of people bitching about prices but most don’t need to get a new car/truck now... most just want the newest greatest whatever they can buy... this really isn’t the time for trading in or buying.... if more would not buy, then the high trap pricing will fall.... car sales man are loving life right now... so I can assure u that I have zero desire to give those greedy people my hard earned money... oh I could go on about the Crooked Auto industry right now.... but man it would be along post.....lol

RE: GRRR Ford Dealer - 2022 SD

Well, if you have not put any money down then, screaming or escalating at the dealer may not work out so well for you. Sometimes things go crazy on the net. It’s probably just someone who made an honest mistake... going to the dealer and blowing up about it if you plan to ... won’t do anything... just go in a try to hear everything out.. yes if someone deliberately did you wrong then you should be upset, if it’s just a fluke and nobody screwed you over then don’t be upset when it can be fixed... I don’t get why things have to be escalated when it may just be an honest mistake... breath .... I think the issue is that it may not be fixable. The op put in an order three months ago at an agreed price and now it appears that he either has to start the whole process over with a new delivery and price or take a truck that is not what he wanted. Personally, if I ordered a truck and they changed anything from my original order without consulting me, that would be a deal breaker for me. I would think that anyone that goes to the bother of ordering a truck has given a lot of thought, and research, to what they want and don't want. If you are going to settle for less, you may as well buy from dealer inventory. Yes Gents I understand, my point is going to the dealer and escalating it is not the way to handle the problem. Absolutely I agree if he orders a truck a certain way then he should get it that way. It’s all in how it’s handled. A lot of times things happen and it’s not always a person doing it deliberately against you. Just reading his post seemed like he was ready to go and throw down with the dealer. Yep I get it, but going there and escalating the situation brings on new problems. If he doesn’t have money down on it then walk away and find someone else to deal with. That’s my take, some times it’s just not worth over a piece of metal with four wheels or maybe 6... anyway good luck OP and let us know what happens.

RE: Considering 2012-2015 Suburban, have a few questions

The 2013 burb with the 6.0 and low mileage is the one that u should be looking at..... the 8.1 is an awesome engine, but........ drinks more the the 6.0 and is much older. With the 6.0 and 6 speed auto, ur hwy mpgs should be 17-18 or so... I get 17 mpg at 70 while driving my 2009 2500hd with the 6.0. That’s my take... get the low miles with the 6.0, even pulling a small camper your still fine...

RE: Opinion on Truck Reliability

A gas 3/4 ton will be cheaper then a diesel and you could even get one newer.. just my thoughts..I have an 09 gmc 2500hd gas job and pull 10k. It’s paid for and just about to hit 100k. If you want diesel it will cost you a lot more... ask me how.. been there done that..

RE: 2008 F250 with 5.4

BIL used to own one. His truck was a 2010 though 4x4 with 5.4 and 3:73 gears I believe. He pulled a 7-8 k travel trailer. He didn’t complain about it as far as I know. It was a good truck, drank some gas but so does any gas towing rig like my 09 6.0 GM. I think they had some issues with the 3 valve heads and cam phasers. Though he did not, but he only had the combo for a few years and sold it, just because he went down to a mid sized truck and was not towing at that point.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

Well my buddy picked one up, 2020 Z71 package 4x4 diesel 3.0. I think it’s the mid LT ? model with cloth seats. Beautiful truck, has a factory lift but not the trail boss edition. Pulls a small camper with it, sure it will be fine. Quiet when it’s running, rides really nice... The dealer told him that the belt change will be extended, I don’t know what miles or years that will be. Amazing truck though, good deals right now to be found locally here. Paid in the mid 40s I believe. Oh he looked at the famous 6.2, but I believe it was the same price... could be wrong..

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

Yea emissions is always something that I personally would be concerned about. I would imagine that he would not change anything in that area since it would be under warranty. I kinda pushed him into thinking about the Ford with the ecoboost but no luck there. I have read about the oil bath belt and I know he isn’t concerned about that...as far as Nissan that’s a no go..so I guess it’s the GM 3.0:so far... I must admit, I’m curious as well since I would consider one myself in the future. Hopefully someone puts some miles on one and chimes in.. thanks a lot so far guys.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

I would stay far away from any small diesel. They are problematic and not worth the aggravation. This coming from a diesel tech. Why are they? What are you seeing being the issues with them? Thanks

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

Op here.... hopefully no spell check errors, lol anyway, yes I’m not looking for one myself. A friend is pretty set on picking one up, and I’ve been researching it out to help him. He turned down both the Ford and Ram counterparts so hence GM is first now on list.... I did look at one the other day, so what’s the deal with small diesels being problematic?

Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

Hey guys, anyone own a new GM 1500 truck with the 3.0 Duramax? If so, thoughts on towing and non towing....? Before it’s spoken about, I already know about the timing belt on the oil pump... payload, and being a 1/2 ton... just want to know from people who own them.. not necessarily spectaculars.. Thanks

RE: Very pleased with my Chevy PU.

That’s what I hear from a lot of GM 6.0 owners, and I echo the same. The GM 6.0 is one of the best engines that I have ever owned. Simply easy to work on, crazy reliable, and with the 6 speed tranny, it’s icing on the cake. I got my 09 and so far I have only 98k on it..... my 02 6.0 I had over 200k. No repairs just basic stuff.

RE: Another 6.6 gas question

The 6 speed is a really good transmission, and u know how good the 6.0 already is. The new 6.6 is even better. The engine is the LT1series now and are better then the LS... hard to say that since I’m a die hard LS guy... but if you look up the difference then you will see how much more improved this engine is. Stock, you can easily add more HP and Tq, more so then on the 6.0. It’s all based on the internals and block design. Heads flow better, much better cooling, oil squirters in specific locations such as under the piston, direct fuel injection... the list goes on. I still love my 09 6.0 with 6 speeds though. I like the idea of the 10 speed... I think close ratios are better. It all depends on what you are willing to pay for. Regardless it will be a great truck I’m sure...

RE: favorite tow vehicle for small trailer??

Methinks the OP is overlooking the obvious choice... The Honda Ridgeline will do everything he seeks and do it better than just about any other mid sized truck. I bought my 2019 Ridgeline a year and 15K miles ago and could not be more pleased. I typically tow my 6 X 10" {8' high} cargo trailer loaded to around 2,600# with the Ridgeline and it is awesome. When you are not towing you are basically driving a a Honda Accord. My RL gets 20 - 23 mpg around town/24 on the highway and 15-16 towing. Bought it for $39 OTD with lots of bells and whistles {figure around $4K of that was in taxes and registration}. For the record the Ridgeline was the Car and Driver mid sized truck of the year for 2017, 2018 and 2019... not sure about 2020 but the 2021 looks like it has been upgraded nicely as well. A lightly used, low mileage 17 - 19 would be a good choice as well. The bed is the largest in class, it accepts 4 X 8' sheets of plywood stacked as high as you like and beneath it there lies a 8.5 cubic foot trunk. Seriously, take a look at the Ridgeline's out there 2017 - 2021, you will be hard pressed to do better. OP ......I was just going to say the Honda Ridgeline...it’s what a lot of people need or could use.. the new refresh next year is really nice looking... OP this is the perfect truck for you. It rides like a car but yet is a truck. To me this is one vehicle is so under appreciated, but would work for the majority of 1/2 ton owners out there that don’t tow large trailers and use it for weekend warrior or projects... https://i.imgur.com/FXfOdTwl.jpg :C
