I have owned this truck since new and thoroughly regret buying the first year of a new model. Idk if my truck was built on a Friday or what, but it has been trouble laden since new. Fuel pump, ABS module, steering column shaft(never completely cured the rattling tho), seat belts, fuel pressure regulator, all during the factory warranty period. And since the warranty expired, multiple sets of brakes, spider gears in rear diff, no less than six sets of u-joints, transfer case flew apart internally(nobody had ever heard of that problem with this model of course). On the positive side it rides and handles like a car gets decent mileage and literally turns on a dime. Should have waited a few yrs
Ride, Styling, V-8 engine is too good for the truck they put it in. 5spd tranny with V-8 and 4wd makes for a good tow rig for a small boat. Turns almost too sharp! Ease of maintenance and repair(good cuz ur gana be working on it a lot)
Quality of driveline assembly. I am convinced that the driveshaft and pinion angles have been the case of my driveline headaches since day 1. Paint and primer quality leaves much to be desired
It is a gem to drive, and quite
comfortable. Very stylish, great
economy. Sporty with the 5-speed
trans. Oodles of power for a v-6.
Best looking truck on the road. Only
minor problem with injectors at about
30,000 miles and Chevrolet fixed it
under a service bulletin. You can't
find a better truck!
Ice cold A/C
5-speed is sporty and positive.
Cruise control is a great addition.
The body lines are the best ever.
I too have had a problem with vibration
in the stearing column. I purchased it
used and took it to the local dealer
(under warranty) who said they fixed
it. To this day I still hear the
vibration!!!!! )*^$#)+*!* I took it
in again, and they said they would have
to "really look into it" to find the
problem. Hmmmm. Seems to be a common
problem, but also a service departement
