    Service Brake Assist Message

    I periodically get a service brake assist message on the DIC of my 2019 Suburban when starting the motor after fueling. The message is there for a few seconds and then disappears. There is no check engine light and no apparent degradation in brake performance. What is going on?

    Is Trading a 2019 Suburban for a 2021 Suburban worth it?

    I looked at a 2021 Suburban LT with no options (so that I could compare apples-to-apples). Interesting vehicle. Nice truck. Better seats for the second and third rows, better headlights, better camera system, and better side view mirrors. Down sides include shifter on the dash, park brake on...

    Dealerships are now advertising that they will be wiping down interior surfaces of new cars between test drives and before and after service department work. I understand the importance of disinfecting for both employee and customer safety. In reading the can for most wipes, it says for hard...

    Pairing of iPhone 7

    I have a 2019 Chevrolet Suburban LT with the base package (meaning no options). Over the weekend, I replaced my old iPhone 7 with a new iPhone 7 that was issued to me by work. I can get it to pair to the car through blue tooth. However, after I have parked the car, it will no longer sense...

    Brake Dust on 17 vs 16

    I have a 17 LS Suburban with 18" wheels that is virtually identical to the 16 that it replaced. I Hanke noticed that the front wheels on the 17 get noticeably dirtier than on the 16. He wheels on my 16 would stay clean, while the wheels on my 17 have a dust film on them after a few hundred...

    Paint Color

    Seems like the most popular color I see on the road is black -- which may be influenced by the number of Uber/Lyft drivers in the Washington, DC area. Question - What is the color and model of your 2015+ SUV?
