Backup Sensors

When I had an Avalanche, the truck would beep when I was getting close to objects. I see the sensors on the back bumper but no sound, shouldn't the truck make the noises?

What truck, trim and packages? What you're looking for isn't standard on base models.

Sounds like you should have rear park assist, but I don't know how Chevrolet implements it. On my wife's Lexus it can be turned on and off (though why I don't know). Could that be the case for yours? Hang tight and I'm sure you get help here.

There is a switch on the lower center panel(far right side by 4 way flasher switch) that turns it on and off(switch has yellow light in it when on). Also turned on or off in the infotainment center page 136 in owners manual.

A vehicle that cost a lot less has options a more expensive vehicle doesnt.

I wish that and the lane assist warning worked the opposite way--light off when not working, as a warning that they are not working. Maybe a red light. Always seems sort of odd to have those two lights on.

And it's really quite sensitive. I'm glad it's not connected so that it operates the brakes!

The wife's Subaru also has the feature that warns you when someone is approaching from the sides. Really nice when you're backing out with a blocked view. That's probably my favorite of all the new driver assist safety features. Much more useful than lane assist.

It may have had those things, but theyre bolted to an antiquated nissan, a design that is now 15 years old. Also the worst truck ive driven from the ‘current’ era.

Dunno about you but id rather have a better pig than a shit pig with good lipstick on it.

I'm not one who judges a truck by when it was designed, but that said, the Nissan when I looked at it had nothing special to offer. I suspect that's more of the reason why it sells at the level it sells than the date of design. It was pretty blah in virtually every way, and ignoring the typical press gushing at anything new, that was probably true from day one. I'm surprised Nissan can't sell more of them to companies like Telecoms, for their workers to drive. It has a steering wheel and a bed, which is all they need, but Nissan can't even crack that market. That speaks volumes.

But I write due to the climate control comment. After living with a 2012 Rav4 with automated climate control I've been leery to buy another vehicle for myself with automatic climate control. It can be like having a 5 year old sitting within reach of the controls--doing things you never wanted it to do. Fortunately the climate control on the wife's 2019 Subaru is not so bad, but actually I slightly prefer the basic Colorado heating/cooling system. It has so much air flow and so many fan speeds that I've yet to find it necessary to switch from the floor/vent setting, and adjusting the temperature is more often just adjusting the fan speed. Maybe the automatic system is even better, but the basic system is really nice. And when the fan changes speed it's because I want it to!

And I suspect in 2015, your Frontier did not have a camera mounted on the rear.

Let's see, would I rather have a beeper screaming at me, or a nice view of the wall I am trying to back up to?

I put this in the category of idiot lights versus a gauge: Do I want a light to go off on the dash telling me I just overheated, or would I like to look at a gauge that tells me my engine is running warmer than normal and perhaps I should take a look at it?

I don't get to park my truck in the garage anymore, but when I did, I would back up my truck using the camera to within about 8"-10" of the wall. I knew I could close the garage door then. With the alarms only, I would have either needed to hang a tennis ball from the ceiling or would have found myself getting out and checking every time I parked.

I have had the dual climate control on multiple vehicles. My wife still complains I freeze her when I am driving, so I am not sure that it is that great an option. It sounds good in theory, practically, I just don't see it working that well. I would actually love to see some sort of front/rear zones. Both my 1990 GMC Safari and my 2001 Tahoe had rear ac units, that made the rear much more comfortable, Side to side, not so much. (I know, our truck cabs are not large enough to justify a rear ac, just pointing out the more critical zones as I see it.)

When I was shopping for my truck, I looked at Frontiers and Tacos. My wife's comment on Frontier was it looked like crap, cheap, antiquated, did not even want to wait for a sales person to come out and talk to us. At the Toyota dealership, her only comment was those people are rude, they don't want to sell us a truck.

(In fairness, the first Chevy dealer we went to together, she stated that sales guy is an idiot, doesn't know what he is talking about. The GMC sales guy recognize I knew more about the truck than him and politely let us test drive and didn't flap his gums uselessly.)

Wife's Nissan has got surround cameras and all kinds of alerts and alarms built into the system. Seems to work pretty good. I wouldn't mind that system on my truck, for a reasonable price.

I've got to agree. The only redeeming feature of automatic climate control is that it can usually be over ridden. The 1996
Ford ranger that I just sent to the scrap heap was the last car I've had with manual controls. One knob for fan speed and one knob for temp. It just didn't seem that complicated to me.

But the knobs are soooo far away and soooo hard to reach. /obvious-sarc

I never used the auto control, it was just nice so I didnt have to have the heater cranked up on my side because my passenger is cold blooded.

Took it back to the dealer, they had to factory reset the infocenter and resync with the bumper sensors.
