    Tbh i used to hear all the horror stories of the 07+ then about the 15+ and ron, ive owned them from the k5 era up to the k2’s and believe me when i tell you they have gotten better and better. I still have my ‘13 hoe and the ‘19 xl Yuk is just like butter... I wish i still had the ‘99 and the ‘01, along with the 13 and 19 but my wife would flip ...

    No doubt that the newer models are quality and there is always a lemon or two in the bunch. My NBS is easier to work on and parts less $ and gobs of info out there about them and man I got to tel you, just like another member here said, the NBS is just more comfortable to sit in.

    Yup, depends on how much piece of mind is worth it.

    I paid $2,000 for my extended warranty on my ‘15 LTZ. It paid for itself within a month when the front Magneride’s went out. Then the rear TV needed replacing when the screen stopped working. Those two repairs paid for the warranty in full. Now I’m getting “free” repairs for another 2 years or until 136,000 miles. It was a good deal for me. “Never” is an absolute and we don’t deal in those.

    The extended warranty I was offered on my 65,000 mile 2013 Suburban was only for powertrain and cost $2,000.00 over the life of my loan. I passed on that. I wish it would have been more inclusive. Looking at a front axle rebuild now and if covered it would have paid for itself at the dealership.

    Depreciation is going to suck these trucks into a black hole soon. The I-6 turbo diesel Yukon, Burb’s, Tahoe & Poss Escalades are coming. Full electrics are on the way too.

    If you don’t have a service contract or warranty to pass on the the new buyer, it’s really going to hurt at trade in or private party fsbo time.

    Eh that's what people say every new generation but nothing ever happens. These things already suffer from depreciation because they're wildly overpriced. Selling them down the road will be no issue because people always want these status symbols, regardless of newer improved ones being on the new lots.

    Glad its working for you. I'm at $5,800 out of pocket and I've used a reliable cheaper mechanic to save money. Thank you shocks, transmission, ac, and other stuff.
