2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Bought the Silverado new in June of 06. Since then, I had a leaky radiator hose, replaced the whole front differential, a transmission leak, numerous steering problems, brake lights went out twice and a few other minor problems. Very dissapointed in this truck. My first new truck and it is nothing but a constant problem. It is in the shop now for a moaning noise in the 4x4 when turning. I am looking at an 08 Tundra or Sierra to replace this mess of a truck. Great power from the engine and ride is great. Gas mileage is okay with about 12 city and up to 17-18 highway.
Tow/haul button, auto 4x4, towing package.
Do something about the tailgate. It is hard to open. Storage compartments on door side are too narrow. Back doors need to open wider like my 02 Ram. Needs to sit a bit higher. Needs a 4x4 indicator. Reliability is an obvious mess.
