Where can I get me some of those $4 washers? I didn't realize they were good for 40 rwhp.

I have a lug nut that's probably cross threaded and I need a new PDIM...

so we'll see if they give me the runaround when I get there.

Hoping for the best.

Well so far I'm unimpressed...

The service manager is not up to speed on the more "technical" stuff...

The technician basically is giving me the "not compatible with 4th generation apple products...."

so I explained the the service manager that Tis2web shows the part numbers and so on...

Not sure he followed so I gave him all the part and version numbers over the phone....

He said he'd have the tech check em out... so we'll see.

I've noticed that GM dealers are very inconsistant as far as how they process info and their knowlege of their own stuff.

Lexus is the best I've EVER dealt with. They are all on the same page and their system is all integrated with one onother. You go to one dealer, and they have ALL the history and info on you car in EVERY dealer. Plus they are all the same knowlegewise.

IMO, Chevy needs to work on this big time.

GTA:
I have a 3rd gen ipod with video (aka "ipod classic" type) which is supposed to be the most compatible with the PDIM and I had problems with it (the system would sporadically not detect my ipod was connected). I had to have a new PDIM installed about 6 weeks after I bought my car which resolved the problem. It has been a pretty common issue. Good luck.

Bummer. I hope they figure it out. I know they are not Apple weenies, but they should have real time GM service information for "advanced" electronics.

You have to feel for these guys a little, bit....it's only been two years and they keep getting these new-age updates and upgrades and 'just in case' TSBs.....It's hard to keep track of it all like it used to be. (And that's not to mention most of them are on the older side....)

Chris, did you get the part number that Cheryl said is now being used? I got my dealer to order it for me. I now have the new part number and my software is DB DB. It has worked perfectly each time I've turned on teh car...and holy crap does it NOT lose it's place! It picks up right where it left off. I LOVE IT. Give them that part number. If they refuse to order it, tell them the issue is not resolved and the problem persists. Show them. There is absolutely NO reason why we should have to suffer with crappy parts and problems when they are legit fixes that have been shown. Just because there is no TSB or whatever doesn't mean they can leave it.

That ticked me off with one of the guys at my dealer, but they did it! It's fixed!

But, did you have a glock on your hip when you let them know you were upset?
