Only 66,000 miles but already had
driveshaft fall off, computer died,
radiator leak, water pump died, intake
manifold leaked, air-conditioning died,
windshield wipers had a manufacturing
defect that I fixed myself.. generally
GM can't figure out why they are having
trouble competing, well this is why:
I have been rather disappointed in this
vehicle, considering my father's 1993 Chevy
Silverado is still going strong at over 100K
miles. I only have about 66K miles, and
have had, in the past three months, to put
almost $1500 into this for things that should
still be working fine. I have been pretty good
about regular maintenance, so I've been
pretty annoyed of late. Time to trade in for a
(gasp) foreign car make.
For a truck, this actually does reasonably
well on gas mileage. It's also not all that
uncomfortable on a long ride.
Reliability. Why can my drivetrain not last
66K miles without major investment? Size. I
was eagerly anticipating the new Colorado,
but am now looking elsewhere.
The truck was not what I wanted.
Small, no frills. But when I drove it my
mind changed. It's fun to drive around
the city, if you like to drive. Oh it's
a 5 speed and I use it. Like most things
we drive it could use more power, but
then again I wouldn't be passing as many
gas stations. I plan on keeping it until
it or I give out. So far other the
regular maintenance it's got all the
factory parts except the rear U joint.
