I've just got my New Trax just a week ago and I am awe struck by it. I was a previous owner of a 2011 and 2013 Chevy Silverado and as much as I love my trucks, (street trucks) I absolutely love my new Chevy Trax better. The gas mileage alone was what sold me. I went from 16-18 mpg in and around the city to 24 to 26 mpg. Love all the whistle and bells stuff too. I just wish I had made the change sooner

Was yours an LTZ?? The Dealership where I got mine had 18 Chevy Trax, they were either LS, LT and LTZ and only the LTZ had the fog lights.. I have already looked into have a set of fog lights installed in mine..

Do you plan on getting back into trucks? Passion runs deep in those!
No James, after owning 2 Chevy Silverado's in 6 yrs, I no longer plan on another truck for a while. Gas Mileage was the big decision maker on why I went with the Trax. It was breaking me up doing my delivery service with my 2013 Silverado, it was like to 16 mpg v's 28 mpg in the city. I did the math. LOL!! Besides I am so into the Trax now, no desire to go back to a pickup...

Striping my Trax

Ok Guys I'm in the process of striping my Chevy Trax, I have them ready to go but I don't have the option of a nice warm garage to do it in. so I am waiting on a nice warm day (64 degrees or higher) to do this in. And those days are getting fewer and fewer.. In the meantime , have a sneak-peak of what my Chevy Trax will look like after the striping job is completed.

No my Trax is an LT I bought the fogs off ebay then installed them myself.
Was there anything special in installation in your fog lights. I saw some on ebay but wasn't sure what to get. Anything inside the cab you have to installed with them or are they a direct bolt on hook up??

About what did you pay for them? Happen to have a listing of which ones you got??

Thanks!!

The install was a bit difficult because the screws for the lights had to go in from the back side of the fog light units.

I bought a set up like the ones above, I also bought a 15 amp black rocker switch from Advanced auto, I already had a few rolls of wire I think I use 16ga.

I ran one wire out from inside of the vehicle took power off the yellow wire on the headlights I used the wire I ran out as my ground.

I ran a power wire down to each fog light,( spliced into the yellow headlight wire near the back of the headlights).
One wire from your switch go's to the body, the other go's out to ground the fogs, when you switch on you cause a ground.

Sorry I didn't tell you that you will need a switch, and 2 pig tails for the fog lights, you can get the pig tails off a car in a junk yard ,or buy new ones at advanced auto.

The fog light kit, 2 pig tails, and the switch were all that I had to buy, you might need a roll of wire and a roll of tape.

Ok thanks for the help. I may have to wait till spring or Summer but a project worth doing.. Don't have a nice warm garage to do that kind of work in or I would have already had my stripes on my Trax by now...
Thanks again!!

New to Chevy Trax!

Purchased my 2015 Chevrolet Trax on January 21st from Webb Chevrolet of Plainfield Illinois.

I visited just two dealerships, and decided on the one with the better value for my trade, since the price-range for the vehicle would be the same in most of my area. The only two trims I test-drove were the LS and the LT, the LS consisting of two separate vehicles, the FWD and AWD vehicles, one from each dealership.

I noticed a bit of a lag on the acceleration when taking the AWD LS for a spin, while the FWD LT was sporting a blinking Battery light on the dashboard. The salesperson said this was fine and it could just be a bad sensor or something, but I'm not one to gamble with first impressions, not to mention the FWD LT was way out of my price range. I had to have them deliver the LS FWD I purchased from Oak Lawn since the sales manager claimed they didn't have any available at the Plainfield location.

The AWD LS Trax I test-drove at the prier dealership was going for $21995, while the FWD LT was at the mid-end of $23995. Both were tempting, however, when I test-drove the FWD LS I was hooked. The starting price for the FWD LS was $20995, so it was closer to the price-range of my budget. All three had the $500 cash-back incentive Chevrolet was offering for the Trax model, plus the dealership was able to accommodate a trade-in value of $1700 more than the previous one offered. I was able to finance with an interest of 2.9%, for 84 months, at $198.00 a month, which was not bad.

Currently, my Chevrolet Trax is 2874 miles old, and the only issue I've had so far was the OnStar module going bad at about 1000 miles. I do have to admit I had been stalking this car since it went on market in the fall of 2012 as the 2013 model in Canada and a few other places before hitting the US showrooms. In the fall of 2014, when it went on sale here, I knew I was going to buy it, it was just a matter of when.
