Really? I'll admit that the are some distinct 2000+ problems, I can only think of one that plagued the 2000 exclusively. (A steering sector problem that I have not experienced)
Besides a change to the cup holder arrangment, location of the heated seat switches, exhaust trip shape, different remote fobs(end in BT instead of XT), and a slightly different steering box, I really don't think there are many differences between 2000 and newer models.
Don't forget that just because you may see more posts for the 2000 models doesn't mean that they are more prone to problems, or that GM changed a part...it probably means they have been on the road a little longer, thus going to experience the problems first.
Can anybody detail any other parts that *changed* between 2000 to newer models, to refute my thoughts? (Really asking!)
Appreciate the feedback.
