Look at the trim around the seats, small things like that. Some
features that are options on Chev are standard equipment on GMC. I
personally prefer the tail lights on the Envoy better than the
Trailblazer, otherwise the two are very similar except for the trim
around the gauges, etc. The difference is almost like the difference
between colors, to each his own.
??? ... do you mean original warranty service? I've had no problems
with a Cadillac/Buick dealer servicing a Tahoe and Grand Prix under
both GMPP and Ford ESP (the GP was bought used at a Ford dealership)
Yes. Some dealers can also be an authorized GMC repair center.
I had difficulity recovering service done on a GMC at a Chevrolet dealer.
There was no GMC dealer in the town and we made the mistake of not calling
them first. It took months and did not recover the full cost. The first
question by GMC was why we did not use a GMC dealer.
Are you a dealer? Things may have changed in the last 5 years.
At that time GMC told me. What I am saying if you take a GMC to a Chevy
dealer for waranty work you had better check to see if they are authorized.
We didn't and had a hell of a time collecting.
I own a GMC Suburban. I am told that production line rejects from the GMCs
are restocked for the Chevy assembly line. If they get rejected again off
the Chevy line, then they go to spare parts for the Chevy dealers parts
Unless you can come up with some hard evidence, I would
write that off as an urban legend. Somebody probably told
you that to make you feel better about buying a GMC instead
of a Chevrolet. I've certainly never seen or heard any evidence
that there is any difference in the quality between the two lines.
It's all just different trim and option choices. The parts are
certainly all identical in the parts catalog...there is no differentiation
between whether the vehicle is GMC or Chevy.
