    Well I bought a Tahoe back in September that I posted on here about, and almost immediately started having issues. Shocks were shot, humming inside the Tahoe was awful to the point of giving me a headache when driving, window pillar trim began falling off, etc. It seemed like one problem after another kept coming up and I got sick and tired of it for a vehicle that I hadn't even made the first payment on yet. So at the end of November I got the bug to look at new end of model year 2018 Sierra trucks due to all the rebates.

    I finally pulled the trigger in December on a 2018 GMC Sierra SLT with the 6.2L engine and I could not be happier. Overall it was pretty much a wash to trade back in the Tahoe and get the Sierra. I haven't had much time to do anything with it yet due to the holidays and then I went on a fishing trip in Mexico that I will make a different post about with some pictures, but I hope to get to some updating soon!

    It's the 2018 so it only has the 8 speed.

    Other than torque converter issues, it's a solid transmission, so far as I know.

    Congrats on the new wheels!

    Good swap! GM just came out with a completely new fluid from Mobil for the transmissions that are giving some issues. They are not doing converter swaps anymore. Hopefully you will not have any issues.
