I have had this truck at the dealer 2 are 3 times with this and other matters, the maintenance technician reports he can not reduplicate my grievance, this malfunction occurs more prominently in cold weather in morning on first take off. All so turn signal malfunction at random no particular pattern, Tech. all so unable to reduplicate.

rear third brake light is leaking water into the cab and causing water stains on the headliner. I am worried about it eventually causing an electrical short or more water damage. I don't have a rear window that slides open and the rear glass has never been replaced nor has the third brake light all original from factory.

I just bought my new Silverado yesterday, and when I drove it for the first time at night I realized that the infotainment display stays extremely bright even when the instrument cluster is dim. This is dangerously distracting while driving at night. The model I have does not givee an option to adjust the infotainment screen separately.
