    Oil change proof question...

    You got to read the fine print in these extended warranties. Most don't realize this they are really not warranties BUT Service Contracts which is usually stated right in the paper work. They can put any loophole in there they want and you agree to it by making the purchase.

    My Yukon Denali 2022 dead battery second time !

    I agree with above, don't start it and let it run for 10 min. It could take up to 30 miles or 15 min of city driving to replace the juice used to start it. I put one of these on my cousins Jeep Cherokee. Takes 5 min to hook up. She drives about 3,000 miles a year and it sits for weeks and goes...

    2022 Tahoe w- 7950 miles dead in the road

    Unfortunately GM does NOT care about the individual customer who is just one small spec in their vast kingdom. They pass that on to the dealer and very few dealers give a rats arse about the customer. The salesmen earn bonus's for selling and the service managers get bonus's for reducing...

    2023 Tahoe Premier Does Not List DFM on the window sticker

    My point was not that they did away with, but that they don't blatantly advertise as they did in the past. Probably because of the bad reputation of DFM engines. According a friend who is in parts at local dealer, they stock all parts to R & R the lifters and its not uncommon for them to see 1...
