    I am 99% sure that within the week I will be purchasing a 2013 Silverado 4x4 LT Ext. Cab Standard Box. Z71, Z71 Appearance Package, Convenience Package, All-Start Edition.

    For the life of me I cannot find anywhere if this truck comes with the power folding mirrors. I have them on my current truck and use them daily. Obviously, it isn't a deal breaker or anything I'd just really like to know if they will be on there or not. I guess I'll know tomorrow when I go see the truck in person and get a trade in low ball (LOL), I mean price, on mine.

    If it doesn't have them tell them it is a deal breaker if they don't add them at their expense.

    If you now use the folding mirrors all the time , then you want the folding mirrors on the new vehicle. contact the salesperson and get them moving to answer your concerns .

    It's an LT, I'm headed to the dealer now to check it out and see how bad they are going to try and screw me on my trade in. Thanks guys.

    Just talk with them, they will have them in their parts department and will just bill it out as a cost of doing business. Of course you might be asked for pay for them, but they might have enough wiggle room you'll never know it. You've got to keep in mind that a dealer selling a new vehicle today doesn't make even 30% of the profit that they used to! They prices that are listed for MSRP are checked by the manufacturers and they don't want dealers jacking up the prices like they did 10/20 years ago.

    However, with the mirrors, it's a different story (somewhat) ... at some point, they'll get a wrecked truck into their body shop that needs a new mirror and they'll just take the one that they took off your truck and will install it and bill their insurance company ...

    Truck has power folding mirrors. I must say there is still a few "real" salesmen who will fight for you. They took my truck for appraisal and the used car manager offered $18,000, which I wasn't surprised to hear that low of an offer. My salesman called over to the used car manager and got them to come up to $20k. Could I get more on a trade in with more haggling? Yes. Could I have gotten a lot more selling it myself? Yes. But, with the couple "freebies" the dealer is throwing in, I am satisfied with the transaction. I am buying a truck that has a MSRP of $40,020 for $28,151 after the GMS price and rebates.

    Pics to come Wednesday!! :great::glasses:

    Sorry to break it to you, but the LT does not have power folding mirrors available. Power folding mirrors are standard on the LTZ. There might be aftermarket power folders, but not GM for the LT.

    Well then it is either an option or the dealer is installing them because my current LT and new LT both have power folding mirrors.

    We just bought a new vehicle. What I found to work was to get the best price for the vehicle we wanted. Then I called around and took our trade in to a few dealers. We were getting differences in trade in values by $4000. When we found the dealer that would give us the highest trade in amount I went to them with the info and price for the vehicle I wanted. I even had the vin from the other dealer's print out. Itold them that I wanted them to match the price and that I wanted that exact vehicle. If they could find another one exactly the same, then great, if not then I said get it from the other dealer. They did it and gave us a maintenance package that the other dealer was not offering! So, we ended up getting $4000 more on our trade in and the best price we could on the new vehicle. I see that you live in SE Michigan also. In some areas it seems like there is a Chevy dealer on every other corner, so doing this may not be all that time consuming for you. If you happen to be near Warren and the Tech center, stop into a Fast food place and pick up a Tech Center News paper. There are some really good deals in there that the area dealers do not put in the Free Press or Detroit news papers. The dealers in the Warren area, especially near the Tech center, cater to GM employees and people getting GMS pricing you might be surprised the difference in price going to one of them. Also, I have some family members that work in sales in some GM dealers in SE Michigan, some of them are major scam artists and I would stay clear of one certain group of dealerships owned by a certain family. My family works for the group and they told me that they would not "let" me buy a car from them because they know that I would get screwed with either the trade or purchase. PM me I will tell you the group name.

    Thanks for the info and the PM Pikey, as I told you my family has a great relationship with Moran Chevrolet. My father works at the Tech Center and he always helps me find the best deals regarding GMS, the truck I purchased MSRP's at $40,020 and I am paying $28,500 after rebates and GMS.

    I went to chevrolet.com and built a 2013 Silverado LT. With the Custom Sport Truck package, you can get heated, chrome capped, power adjusting, manual folding mirrors. Nowhere was I able to option up to power folding mirrors. The LTZ comes with them standard. So yes, the dealer or someone else is putting them on.

    Talked to my sales guy, they installed them. Either way, I'm happy with it, I was just reporting what I saw last night. As long as I couldn't tell they were added after and they are warrantied, it doesn't really matter how they got there. LOL

    I'm sure GM has kits to add that. GM also offers a kit to add heaters to the LT leather seats. Can you take a pic of where they put the switch to fold the mirrors on an LT. On my LTZ it is on the door by the power mirror switch.

    Also, you are now required to post pics of your new truck for all on the forum to see. We love to see new Silverados!!!!!

    I will get some pictures up this week. Going to pick it up tomorrow afternoon, the pin stripe guy is only at my dealership on Wednesdays, so as soon as they call I'll be headed there. It is the same as the LTZ switch, I know this because my pop's has an LTZ but I will post a pic of that as well.

    By the way, @stchman, you have a GREAT looking truck. I was torn between the tricoat white with the chrome package or the bright red with the Z71 appearance package. But, since you cannot get that tricoat white on an Ext. Cab, I went with red.
