Always get the oil changed when the light comes on within 1 full tank of gas. I thought  the 2010 was already programmed to have you change the oil at less miles since they had so many problems with the 2009. Don't know the brand of oil since my wife has it done normally and we tell them to put in whatever the manufacturer recommends. I check the oil about every 2 tanks of gas and it has never been less than halfway between the top and bottom marks but I went ahead and put a half quart in just to be safe and that only happened 1 time. Thanks

when the light came on---  so that was 7000-10,000 mile oil change intervals?


back in 2009/2010---- I, and several other members who had used oil analysis noticed that the oil life was not reflecting what the oil life monitor was showing.
the oil was much more deteriorated than the monitor showed. The Direct Injection engines were beating up the oil big time. Others noticed that they also had highly elevated levels or iron- which I believe was iron being shed from the timing chains.
I ran several Used oil analysis to get a good basis of oil life.
I use regular Valvoline. I settled on 5,000 miles or 50% Oil life.

Eventually- GM updated the OLM on the 2009's.... the oil change interval was now- 5000 miles.

I also check my oil level- and  make sure the level remains up above the full mark.

I could have probably installed the parts - I agree. 

But what you see above it something I worked into the deal with the dealer at the time of purchase - so it cost me nothing. 

If I ever end up wanting to pull larger loads - I will look into the additional items you mention.  Thanks. 

Well, I sure can't beat THOSE prices!   Happy

My cost so far:

Draw-Tite 75528, eBay    $102
Tow/haul switch, eBay      $40
Used Fuse box, eBay        $75
T One Harness, eTrailer     $45
             
                Total so far   $262

Still to come, Draw-Tite I-Command brake controller/Tekonsha adapter, $72 from eTrailer.

If you're going to be towing something heavy enough that it has electric brakes, I'd recommend that you add the oil cooler, too.

I have a set of Yokohama Geolander AT G015 tires. There severe winter rated (snow flake in the mountain,) and have never had any problems at all in the snow. They do pretty good with ice as well. I even plow with mine. I did have to take the air dam off to make room for the front receiver.

Does anyone know what causes this to happen? And would changing trans fluid prevent this from happening?

So far the awd system on my 2016 Chevy traverse has done well with the stock but siped Goodyear fortera tires thumbs up  on icy surfaces (I mean intersections resembling an ice rink) yes it will slide and scramble to find traction however for having basically road tires I can keep up with the "vaunted Subies" and have surprised a few Grin. In the snow which in the past 24hrs = 10 inches, I turn off the traction control and get 'er done Smiley. What is funny is that the low air dam acts like a plow just like my old trans am used to do in the winter and I actually trim the peaks snow and dump it further down the road thumbs up  works for me!  This thing is a tank-----love this car!  I can only imagine what it would do with snows on it...........
