Used primarily for towing my KZ-RV Frontier 2505, purchased at a reduced price due to rear dually locking up on turns. First owner advised me to change fluids which did not help. GMPP warranty found the problem in the PIG Head and replaced no problems in the past 50 thousand miles. Excellent tow vehicle and will replace with another Silverado in the future.

If you are looking for fuel economy,
this may not be your vehicle. Most of
my trips are less that 5 miles and MPG
range from 9-11 MPG. We have pulled a
fifth-wheel trailer with 10,000# of
dryywall on it. No problem! I have
replaced and battery and alternator.
Hood release also broke on inside (the
plastic pull). I as very glad that the
truck has been as dependable as it has
been as the dealership service sucked!
I think that they did manage to get the
power door locks and security alarm
installed by a vender but they never
fixed the windshield leak or finished
preping the vehicle for delivery!
Model consolidation takes place in anticipation of the all-new Silverado. Trim levels have been changed from three to two (Base and LS) and two new Crew Cab Short Box models (C/K2500 and C/K3500 Series) are offered. Additionally, the C/K1500 will be available only as an LS Extended Cab Short Box with the third door. Mechanical upgrades include new internal components and seals for automatic transmissions, improved cooling system and starter motor durability and three new exterior paint colors.
