  1. It is interesting to me that other members portended that this platform switch would not be a good thing

    Chevy SS Lounge
    Thank you Adam. Interestingly, in my screen the red icons are partially obliterated by the gray search stripe. I just chanced clicking on the small red area of the second icon in front the right and it came up "popular".
  2. It is interesting to me that other members portended that this platform switch would not be a good thing

    So apparently, the transition to another Forum platform took place several days prior. Since I joined in August 2014, I always always delve into the Chevy SS Forum by going to ACTIVE TOPICS; doesn't that make sense? To see what others are currently talking about in all of the sub-Forums? I do...
  3. Another SS down..car vs. deer

    Chevy SS General Discussion Forum
    Would you be the SS owner from East Hanover to whom I gave my spare OE Bridgestone tire; you drove over to my house? Whether yes or no, very sorry for your loss.
  4. Does anyone know from where this noise is emanating?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    The reason cited for no monetary assistance didn't make sense to me because it was so obvious. I certainly know that the car was out of warranty, time-wise and that GM is under no obligation to repair it for "free" or or monetarily subsidize the repair. I actually thought that Chevrolet might...

    Apparent Bottom Line with my noise issue I was out of the country for a week and got back yesterday. After a bit of phone tag, I just spoke with Cheryl, a senior advisor with Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center. Please recall that my local dealer replaced my rack and pinion steering...
  6. Does anyone know from where this noise is emanating?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I elected to contact Chevrolet Customer Care yesterday to plead my case; haven't heard back yet. Additionally, I'll check my service records to determine exactly what was done on one of the recalls, I think one was to address the power steering or something associated. Thank you CB for the...

    So……I called the dealership from whom I bought my SS and they had me come up today. Both the service advisor and the technician heard the inside compartment and outside compartment noise and they took it into the shop. 90 minutes or so later the service advisor advises me that I need to have the...

    Doug, thank you for the thought; I do have stock rims and the wheels were rotated side to side.
  9. Does anyone know from where this noise is emanating?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I do get your concerns about me letting this noise go on un-investigated for so long. From my perspective, from inside the car, it was "obvious" to me that this noise was a simple rubbing of the steering wheel with the steering column, as much as I couldn't imagine how or why. I could not hear...
  10. Does anyone know from where this noise is emanating?

    Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I have a 2015 6 MT SS with 30.9K mileage. For the past month or two, I've heard an annoying rubbing sound whenever I turn the steering wheel in a stationary or low speed [like parking] situation. I assumed that the steering wheel assembly might be rubbing against the stationary part of the...
  11. oil percentage vs every 5k miles

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    I think the bottom line may be that virtually any brand of oil is so "good" nowadays that you're basically wasting your money and good oil if you change it out every 3K to 5K. I'm going to go by my oil life monitor. I had the oil changed at the dealership at the beginning of May 2018, I've gone...
  12. Kate Smith

    Chevy SS Lounge
    Since I'm not on any form of social media [is this Forum social media?] I don't think my comments made here would reach any NY metro area news place. For years I had been complaining about Kate Smith's version of God Bless America. I'm really not that patriotic of an American, but I felt that...
  13. M6 what gear can you go without

    Chevy SS General Discussion Forum
    I almost never use 1st gear and typically start off in 2nd and go right to 5th from 2nd. If I make a right turn out of my development and go East on old Rt. 24 towards Morristown, it's a long downhill so I go right from 2nd to 6th.
  14. Shooting range FAILS ..

    Chevy SS Lounge
    Interestingly enough, at least to me, I recall a mid 1960s American Rifleman article about a fire at Ray's Sport Shop on Rt. 22 in Scotch Plains, NJ. Lots and lots of ammunition went off. That situation is not as dangerous as one might think. When modern ammunition self-ignites outside of a...
  15. You can only carry one handgun...

    Chevy SS Lounge
    I seem to shoot the best with a 45 Colt revolver. My Dan Wesson 745 weighs 58 oz and has an 8" barrel; I might choose my Ruger Blackhawk or Redhawk [shoots 45 ACP also] over the DW. Then there's my Thompson Center Contender with a 10" barrel shooting 357 Maximum. God Bless America, no?
