I love the truck, but there are lots of drivetrain problems. Three recalls ,sqealing parking brake is the worst, two rear differentials, and three comeplete clutches, all in the first four months. Still a good truck all in all.
I purchased my truck 2 1/2 years ago
and have been reasonably impressed.
Not great accleration or mind blowing
power, but a good solid pull. I work
it hard everyday and so far it has
stood the test of time. Had a few
minor problems but overall a good truck
Great to ride in.
Needs better stereo system. Could use
Numerous difficulties; right quadrant of
taillights has short that has them turn
on and off intermitently, Spare tire
release under the bed was broken from
the manufacturer. I learned this from
the tire store. His remark was "none of
them work, I do not think yours will
either" he was right! Battery terminal
was broken on this brand new truck.
Right side window does not work at all.
Frozen in the up position. Lights on
dash come on at strange times. Leak in
cab on drivers door in the middle, this
a chevy standard feature.
The "tow package' is strictly a
transmission low gear that seems to work
well. Would you think there might be
some wiring for this purpose? No!
Trialer hook-up etc.
. started to experience a knock in the
motor. REMEMBER this truck is still
under the 3yr-36,000. mile warranty!

another dealer, they said i had a
problem and replaced the lifters. truck

FROM MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE AS ME"
