At ~20,000 miles that sucker was DIRTY! I thought it wasn't getting as much air flow to the defroster and heater as it should. :lol:

I'm sure it's just a rebadged POS :wink: , but haven't needed to take it back to the dealer for anything yet. Kind of like it so far.

got a 2002 , 360,000 miles , change the cab filters twice a year.....

I didn't know GM had started using them again. We have an 06 Silverado 2500 that has a sprayer in the back, that we keep around for fighting fire, pretty sure it didn't come with one. I checked the Wix filter sight, they had a part number for the 02, but not an 06.

360,000 miles is pretty good service, IMO.
