    You got the tune while having issues? I want to get the GDE, but i am worried about losing the warranty. I had the AEM done also but the soot readings started before I got it.

    Thanks guys. Been a while since I have been on the forum, got bored with all the negative "IT's gona blow" stuff. Then I got this recall and wham! When they installed the update the dealership toasted the ECM, it took 5 days to get a new one and during that time they left me high and dry with no wheels. After the update the truck has less power, gets less mileage on a tank but worse is the regen. Seems that every time I look at the CTS it's in regen. In 1 three hours highway trip it regened 4 times and that was while pulling my trailer. Prior to the update it would not have regened at all as the truck ran hot enough not to require it. This sucks, just wish I could get to GDE. Hopefully soon.

    Oh man , you let FCA flash your truck ,
    with no $$$ , and no extended warranty like they are getting in the USA .
    in USA if AEM takes more than 3 hours you get a loaner , another shaft to canadian owners , no loaner .....5 days ...
    ..
    the dealer is not flashing my truck with that canadian AEM version , no way ,
    waiting for the class action in Canada to do its thing , hoping we get a deal
    more or less similar to the USA settlement .
    Others have had it flashed in Canada saying they see no difference , other have
    seen the truck turn into a dog like yours , fried ECM as a bonus .

    Tailgate used to fly open on my truck. Did the recall myself $2 part. Thats how much I dont want to see the Dealership.. I wont let them flash the AEM untill they offer me $$$$.
