Funny you mention that.
The day after I bought my truck all hell broke loose and it went into limp mode. Limped it home then called Chevy roadside A$$.
After SIX hours of no [tow]truck, and now in danger of the dealer closing I called AAA.
Luckily the dealer stayed open to receive my truck AND paid for the tow
That was my first and only time dealing with them, but since then I've heard of others having like problems with'other
manufacturer's roadside a$$ as well
I get the feeling that they may pay WeLL below what other companies do, and also may not have the maximum wait rule like AAA does.

Just back from having tire pressure sensors reset at the dealer. Also asked about the jack issue as instructed by GM Customer Care. First off, was I putting the jack in the right place? "What jack were you using?" "The OEM one." "Oh, that's just for changing flats - the temporary spare is smaller diameter than the regular tire and will go back on after you pull the flat one off. If you want to actually change wheels you need to by an aftermarket jack. I had to do that with my own truck."


Duh .....


I guess I will keep my blocks of wood.

I want to hear GM come on here and say your dealer is correct: Jack is only good for removing flat, you can't put the repaired tire back on.

Besides, 90% of us have a full size spare, not a "temporary spare" that is undersize.

OEM jacks are designed for a perfect world. I carry a block of wood to compensate for having to change a flat on less than solid surfaces.
