You have to shop around and see what other prices you get for the same/similar car with the options. OEM options will not add or remove the value of the car, unless if you get it fully loaded and...

I park in safe, well lit places. I also look for nicely sized spaces, and cars or objects that won't move (monthly parked cars, walls, etc.). I've had great luck with my Malibu. The parking garage...

Its good but its underpowered. I have said it before, but given all of the quality issues of the 4th gen's Monsoon system, at this writing it still remains the best sounding OEM system of my fleet. ...

That may (or may not) be the case, but one cannot deny the good looks of the 14-18 Silverado/denali trucks. They were competitive, and many viewed the gmc trucks as among the best looking in the...

The last few posts are not encouraging. Add to the not so good looks, the ride quality (according to some) is behind the Silverado's competition.

I can't figure out how Chevy and GM dropped the...

Did the dealer say what the cause of the slipping of the clutch was? I thought the clutches were fairly heavy duty in ZLs. Did you have a lot of usage with it?
