#1 of 69 2003 silverado
Mar 14, 2007 (3:57 pm)
I just purchased a 2006 silverado. The manual that came with the truck talks about a driver information center (dic) located on the instrument panel cluster above the steering wheel, the books mentions things like driver preferences, etc. My truck does not have the driver information center buttons but when I crank the truck "driver 1" displays where the digital odometer is and then disappears displaying the odometer. This "driver 1" leads me to beleave that there are some preferences that can be set for different drivers but I have no idea how to do this or is this just not possible without the driver information center buttons.

I bought a 2000 GMC Pickup.
The sticker on the door says it was built in 06 2000.
The reason I ask is because a buddy just bought a 2000 Chevy and his sticker in the door said it was built in 08 1999.
What do they use as the cutoff date from year to year.

By federal law, a manufacturer can manufacture a vehicle one numeric year early but not past Dec 31 of the same year - for example, a 2007-model vehicle can have a date of manufacture from January 2006 to December 2007. (Ford may have found a loophole to this since they began production of the 2008 Super Duty trucks in December of 2006, although they may have waited until January 2007 to complete them, giving them a legal manufacturing date.)
Most manufacturers will produce a model-year vehicle from July to June. Redesigned vehicles are usually the ones that will have more unique ranges in their first year.

I have a 2007 chev z71 1500 quad cab, classic style truck... whew thats a mouth full. My broke the passanger mirror off, the price to replace it is $900.00 through a dealership. Some car supply store can get replacements parts for 06 for half that cost, would it be the same mirror? I don't think there i any diffrence between the 06-07, i think they were just left over 06's....

Do you have the black power heated mirror?
GM does sell just the pieces. I can assume you broke
the glass and the cover???
Even do a search for GM parts and check the discount GM
wholesale part dealers.
Note the mirror replacement is a EASY DIY job and you
don't have to remove the door panel. Just the little
black trim piece above the door panel and remove 3
bolts and plug in !
Heres a link to instructions and pics:
