4500 Awsome Miles and Counting
By dbragg on
2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Extended Cab 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This truck is an absolute pleasure to drive. The 5.3L engine is strong although the transmission shifts could be tighter. The handling is more car than truck like. We've had a rough winter in the northeast but the Silverado handled the snow and ice with out a problem. Fuel mileage is 18.5mpg on the highway and 14 to 15mpg in town, but I knew what I was getting when I went with the 5.3L engine. The build quality on this truck is second to none.
Looks. I have the Z-71 in black with RWL BF Goodrich tires on 18 in. aluminum wheels . The interior is also way too nice for a truck, but I'll take it. XM radio, remote starter.
