Bought this truck brand new off the lot. 3 1/2 years old and the cylinder head is faulty. $2000+ repair that GM has admitted they knew these cylinder heads were faulty, but they won't step up and help defray repair costs. Truck is starting to rust already and we've had the steering column replaced 2 times so far! I thought Chevy's were built to last?
Heated mirrors, comfortable ride
Gas mileage. GM own up to problems and help with repair costs if they know parts are faulty.
This is my fourth Chevy truck since 1997. I absolutely love it. It has a very strong engine and great ride. Drives very heavy, which is good also. Love all the features as does my wife. Came out of reg cab 4wd and enjoy the extra room. Gets much better gas mileage than the 4wd. I average about 18.4 mpg. In contrast, my wife has an Explorer and I can 't get but 16.5 out of it with a V6 and lighter vehicle. Highly recommed the truck. Ready for an interior upgrade. The new Ford really looks nice as does the Nissan. The '07 update should be great and I bet will blow those two away.
The comfortable seats and the great power of the engine. Also, the mileage has been a great surprise. Looks aggressive coming at you, and I like that.
Time for an interior update to keep up with Ford and Nissan. I am sure the upcoming '07 change will address that. Also, get rid of the vinyl rear seats. Put leather seating surfaces back there too!
Comfortable, reliable and solid
construction. This is the first vehicle
I have ever owned that did not have a
rattle or squeak somewhere at sometime.
I am 65 years old and have owned a lot
of vehicles in my life and the is at the
top of my list as far as quality,
comfort and performance. I purchased a
1966 442 with a 3.90 and 4 speed muncie
in November of 1965 which I still own
today. The 5.3 Silverado is the closest
thing I have owned in performance to
that excellent old 442. I do not care
about the overhead cams, 3 and 4 valves
per cylinder, etc. I love my Chevrolet
5.3 (327 Cu In) V8 small block Chevrolet
engine and standard 4 wheel disk brakes.
A lock on the tailgate. A simple key
lock built into the tailgate release
handle would be nice to prevent possible
theft of the whole tailgate. A power
lock operating with the power door locks
would really be nice.
THIS IS NOT THE FIRST CHEVY P/U I HAVE
OWNED. IT IS MY EIGHT. PRIOR TO THAT
I HAVE OWNED THREE FORDS. THERE IS
REALLY NO COMPARISON. I HAVE NEVER
REALLY UNDERSTOOD WHY CONSUMERS REPORT
ALWAYS GIVES THE JAPANESE VEHICLES GOOD
RATINGS, "MILES" AHEAD OF FORD OR
CHEVY, AND DON'T EVEN MENTION POOR
DODGE. PERHAPS OWNERSHIP HAS SOMETHING
TO DO WITH IT?
THE USE OF REGULAR GAS, XM RADIO, ON
STAR, RIDE, POWER, TOW ABILITY,
LOOKS,ALL AVAILABLE ACCESSORIES
