My tow rig on Jody’s tow setup. Here’s the story, I bought this truck last Wednesday from a Chevy dealership. This morning I left Fayetteville with a few stops planned but overall heading to Pigeon Forge TN to visit family. I towed a little trailer up to my buddy’s shop with no problems what so ever. As I was on 40 coming across the Triad it seamed to of lost power and just revved up. After a few times of this I stopped and checked fluid. It had fluid so I got back in and it drove fine until about 3/4 mile from Jody’s shop. Sitting at a light it felt like I got rear ended and that was it. Let off the brakes and it just rolled backwards down the hill. Played with it for a few and eventually I was able to limp it to Jody’s shop. After going back and forth with the dealership I bought it from they eventually told me to get it to the Chevy dealership in Asheville. We loaded it up as seen in the pictures and towed it to sunshine Chevrolet. They said there was nothing they would do about it so now I’m waiting for the dealership I bought it from to tow it all the way back to Fayetteville. I also got them to cover my rental car for the week I’m traveling. Getting a rental turned into a whole big deal too. This whole day has been a nightmare, but as Jody told me “it could of happened somewhere else, like in the gorge.” Believe it or not this is actually the shortened version of today.

At least it wasn't the middle of my work day and wasn't pouring rain.
Oh, wait.:laughing:
Like I told you yesterday, if you see someone in need and can help, but choose not to, you're a POS.
Good to meet you and your daughter. She told me ALL about roller coasters and her favorite Disney characters while you were fighting it out with the dealer!

Lol thank you for everything. Surprised she didn’t add legos and Harry Potter to that list.
Jody is good people. He got a good heart and really cares

Sorry you had this little detour bro. Hopefully the stealership will stand behind their product and not make this experience worse.

Just to help even the score. My father in laws truck left him sitting on the side of 85 in Blacksburg SC today, so I made the 5 hour round trip to get him home. I actually got better fuel mileage towing home than I did dragging the empty trailer, not sure how that happened….

Broke the belt and overheated. Doesn’t appear to have hurt it any, but either the AC compressor or the PS pump is making extra noise. I’m thinking one of them is the reason for the disappearing belt.

They're conflicted. They love YOU but liking one of my posts puts me closer to beating Matt and his record high stats
