After only 5 years - too many things wrong with it
By chevydriver2 on
2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I've enjoyed the truck which I bought new in early 2009.
At 1700 miles off warranty, I had to replace
rear break cylinders that cost about $1,100 all in.
Too much too soon.
I've been burning oil like crazy.
I took it in to have that repaired.
It turns out there is a dealer bulletin on it.
That means they did a big repair job for free because I got it in at under 100K miles.
Apparently excessive oil usage was a big and noted problem. On the same visit I replaced to door lock motors $500, to rear window switches $250 and a solenoid that was causing an engine light $400.
I just think that this is two long and expensive a list for a truck that is 5 years old with only 86K miles on it.
Make all the door locks and window switches last longer.
And WTF on the oil usage problem.
Include side running boards for free like Ford does.
Chicks and old people can't get into the car without them.
