I had hoped they learned, but they are still decontenting vehicles each year. When will they get it that vehicles need to improve every year, not lose features. Damn.

And are they not offering gas engines for the HD trucks now?

So my question is why not just delete the 1LS package on the Tahoe / Avalanche since GM went to so much trouble to decontent the hell out of it anyway!

So Onstar is now 6months instead of one year? Not a great way to get people hooked on it GM! And the de-contenting continues...
I think that's the Directions (aka navigation) package, not the Safe & Sound. Right now the navigation package is only good for I think 3 months.

I think deleting the power folding mirror option on the Traverse is a mistake. As noted by others, it's stupid to decontent the vehicles but I have seen other makers do the same thing. I have to wonder what they'll delete from the Equinox. Makes me glad we got one this model year.

The Traverse LTZ mirror deletion...does that mean that you can still get the heated mirrors with inset and turn signals manual-folding? That blind spot inset is han-dy.

Yeah, it's just the power-folding feature. Sux that we lose it but this only affects those in the know. Most buyers will never miss it and that's the argument that bean counters make when they try to boost the bottom line. After all, it's not like the LTZ is going down in MSRP by $50 or whatever the internal option cost is. Probably only costs $5/unit to include the feature.

on the Traverse forum-- I have not read of too many people even mentioning the power folding mirrors. Im not sure many even know it exists.
Though I do know 1 member who added the power folding to his-- they came from a Saturn Outlook.
To me- power folding--- not a feature I would pay for- dont need it.
