Ok, So I clean out my 2003 Jeep Liberty LTD, which by the way treated me great in the 3 1/2 years I owned her, and pack everything up I want to move over to the new Tahoe. Get the Girlfriend and head over to the Dealer, Jim McKay
Chevrolet in Fairfax, VA. Once we arrive I am greeted by my salesman, he sits us down at his desk and gets me to fill in some info on my trade. He has another customer right now but starts the process of my trade evaluation anyway. I am so anxious I can't sit still and spend the next 45 min
pacing around the dealer floor or hanging out outside. All the while my girlfriend is busy working from her blackberry and papers she brought from the office. My salesman takes my Jeep for a drive and over to the Used car Dept. I inform
the GSM that the Jeep is actually in my girlfriend's name(speeding ticket last year forced me to "sell" it to her) and was this going to be a problem for trade in purposes. His reply was not a problem just we would have to buy it from her if she isn't on the title for the new one. So I talk it over with her and we agree to add her name to the new title, she wasn't paying anything so no sweat for her. My Salesman comes back we a number that is fair but a little low for trade and suggests we go to CarMax to sell if they are giving us a lot more. I had the trade appraised CarMax end of July for $1000 more than he was offering but also added 3000 mi since then. So it is now 6:45pm and I tell my Salesman ok we are heading
out there and will be back around 8:30 to finish the deal. He sighs and says "8:30?!?! Ok." To which I reply well look if you bump my trade by $500 I won't go. Now I sold cars and I know that my trade is worth more than either CarMax or
Dealer is giving; but both are fair offers, not insulting. So he "asks" the GSM and the GSM wants to get out earlier than later so he says, "Cowboy up lets get it done."
So, We finish the paperwork with my Salesman and he takes us to the FM and she says the the GSM told her to sell anything I want for $100 over cost. You know it is
nice when you don't have to bicker, banter, or argue over what is fair for all involved. So I got an extended 5y/75K mi warranty at a good price and they make a little money. I will recommend Jim McKay Chevrolet in Fairfax, VA to all.
My Salesman helps us move stuff over from the Jeep to the Tahoe when I discover that the cargo cover doesn't fit, he tries it and realizes it is for a Suburban not a
Tahoe. He says he is sorry and the guys in prep should have caught it; we agree on a "We OWE" sheet for a new one and everybody is again happy. I finish with a walk around and my Salesman is following me around with his hankerchief cleaning every spot I touch.
I show my Salesman how top operate the remote start on my Jeep, and he shows me how to operate the remote start onmy new Tahoe. I truely believe he wanted to see us happy and was thankful for our business.
So, I drove to work yesterday after spending 15min in our driveway just playing with her. What a dream to drive I can't wait to read every manual cover to cover. I kept my girlfriend up last night because I wanted to read the small feature booklet before I went to sleep.
With 80 miles on her I am very happy and am looking forward to installing the NAV/DVD bypass. Will update after that intstall and test.
#1922 of 3150 Cargo Mat - 2007 Yukon

I'm trying to find a cargo mat to cover the entire cargo area when the 3rd row seats are removed. My dealer says GM only has a cargo mat for the small area behind the third row seats. Can anyone help me. I'm trying to cover the whole area to accomodate my very messy dog!

I simply purchased the cargo mat for an '07 Tahoe LT (they don't come with the third row seats) and it just sits in over top of the tracks and all in the back with the seats out. It is made from a kind of heavy plastic/vinyl and has a curled lip all the way around to help keep everything on the mat when you take it out as well.
Hope that helps!

As an FYI, I removed my third row seats because I need to haul items in the back more often than I need to make more room for people. I purchased the cupped rubber/vinyl cargo mat from my GMC dealer for $55.00. It has worked out great and has never allowed liquids or other unwanted mess to get on the carpeting in the cargo area. There are many options available that have been discussed in this forum in past months. I would send a picture, but I haven't figured out how to attach a photo into this forum.

I requested pricing on a LT3 w/ 20" wheels (RCS Option), I get 1 reply from 4 dealers. He gives me a great price and then in a subsequent e-mail says he forgot to price the RCS with it. I ask him for the price w/ RCS and he doesn't answer, just says I need to get one with the 3rd seat and power liftgate. I've seen all I need to see from that guy.
I think I read that the current $2,000. rebate runs thru 10/2/06. Anyone hearing that they may up the rebate (back) to $3,000.? I know a local dealer that has 46 LT3s and LTZs sitting on his lot.

Thanks much for the info. I ended up ordering two: one carpet for the dog and one protective for when I'm hauling stuff. From the description on the website it sounds like they'll do the trick.

My buddy and I just installed it, and we can't get it to work at all. When I recieved the kit the #1 "switch" was down and all the rest were up. In the directions it says to set all "switches" to the up position. I tried loads of different combinations and none seemed to work. Does anyone remember the "switch" setting on the box. I did the optional install with the "clips" to allow navigation inputs while driving. I really want to get this done this weekend while my buddy is here. I need some help from you all. BTW I followed the directions printed and from the website. Please help............

just looked at mine(haven't installed it yet) and you're right - all are in the up(off) position except the first one which is down(on). the directions indicate this first position is only necessary to mess with if you want the aux power(orange wire) activated.
i'd double check the connections and make sure your wire taps are actually "tapping" and making a good connection and that all the other connections are snug
this is all i got - hope it helps

Yes the directions say set all switches to the up position. That's all I can suggest. Maybe you should give Coastal a call for help.
Now maybe you (or someone else) can help me with my install. I tried today to pull off the plastic trim around the radio and could not get it off. The top popped right off (next to the radio) but when I got down next to the climate control panel it seemed to be attached there firmly - almost like it was part of the climate control panel itself. Any hints how to get the trim off?
