The current rebates and GM Employee incentive pricing brought me back to the Chevy dealership. I brought the Z71 for about $2,000 below invoice. The power is good since I purchased the power package and the exterior trim is great. The majority of the features are great and there are numerous electronic gadets more than the other brand trucks. The satellite radio is nice extra, which GM does own XM (Great self promotion). In most reviews, the quality of the interior is lacking, which I found to be true in my case. GM needs to upgrade the interior quality and design. It was not much different than my 2000 Silverado interior. At the current price it was a worthwhile buy.
Satellite Radio and numerious electronic extra features. The Z1 exterior trim is sharp and I would recommend to purchase the power package, which improves your horsepower to 310 and improves your gas mileage over the standard 5.3 V8 engine.
The quality of the truck could be improved, especially the interior which has been been around for a very long time. It is time for GM to show some creativity.
a tough truck - 16-17 mpg ongoing, problems : brakes abs system repeatedly , Poor design causes the abs to light up on the dash which so far has always beed associated with the wheel hubs area. Many owners I've talked with have had same problem. these brakes will fail. brake pads have to be modified when installed new - if not - they'll wear unevenly . design problem again . brake shops aware of this . other wise a great truck
a good truck for the money ! roomy and easy to adjust steering and reach dash panel
brake system abs - brake pad fit - abs sensor connections at hub -
This is my 2nd new chevy truck and by my best vehicle ive driven to date.The ride is solid and suspension is smooth interior niose is minimal the aluminum block 5300 vortec really moves this vehicle quite nicely, the acceleration is that of a sports car almost Vette like and makes it very fun to drive. interior room in the extra cab is enough for 6 adults with front bench seat and makes it perfect for a family vehicle with plenty of room to haul the grocerys or plywood for that home improvement project the fit and finish seem to be good also no rattles or squeeks Ive had no problems what so ever in the 6 mo. ive had this truck Overall Im very satisfied with my Silverado Ext Cab

What a looker this truck is with the 20" chrome wheels, maroon, extended cab, side rails and step bars. WOW - I was a GMC fan until I saw this in the showroom and had to have it. The deals are just too awesome and the vehicle is fabulous. I got the 3.23 rear end with the 5.3 and it goes 52 mph at 1,100 RPM - mileage TBD Now the bad side, the 20" tires and wheels ride terribly. If you get the HD, it is exacerbated even more. Seems almost like a roller coaster ride over even the most minor bumps. The dealer said it would go away in 500 miles, but I certainly have my doubts. Any others experiencing the same problem with this wheel upgrade package? Strongly recommend the vehicle
Looks. The ride is quiet except for the item mentioned above. Good layout and great visibility. The stereo is weak.
Drab interior - spark it up a bit, a little chrome or something!

The ride is smooth, and seating is great. My back doesn't hurt on long drives. It's powerful for what I do. It has better gas mileage than my trade-in did, and it was a 2004 Frontier. The steering is light and quick. Large mirrors enable me to see other traffic with less blind spots. It's a great truck. I really like it.
The new style front end and the daylight driving lights. The AM/FM cassette and DVD player combo
Larger tires. The cruise control stalk should be smoother at the end. It has a sharp edge and is annoying when you engage the cruise control
