I have had my "new" truck for almost a month now, and can find very little to complain about. Seeing as how I'm a quality manager and my job it to pick nits, this says volumes about the vehicle. The 5.3 has great power for its size (but could use a tad more low end torque), espicially in a vehicle this heavy. The tranny does what it's supposed to do when it's supposed to, and the tow/haul mode makes life much easier on the transmission when hauling my boat. The gearing is right on for this application and provides good torque multiplication in the lower gears while maintaining a reasonable RPM for highway crusing.
Clean, traditional truck styling, a very comfortable interior and a strong drive train.
Can't manually turn off the headlights with automatic head light feature. Over use of cheap, hard plastic in the interior, and the vehicle could use a touch more ground clearance.
