Good Truck with issues
By Who Dat on
2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
This truck has 4000 miles on it and I have had some minor problems so far. One chrome door handle broke off, the fuel cell indicator failed, and the dealer had to install noise reduction tape on all four doors. Besides the inconvenience of going back for repairs it has been a good truck. I hope the long term reliability is good, may have to get an extended warranty. We have six 09 Silverados at my work site, all have had some type of problems. Not sure if I would purchase another GM product at this time. The cloth seats are a lint nightmare to clean.
Ride comfort, towing capability, on star, six speed transmission.
GM's overall quality needs improvement, cloth seats are very difficult to maintain. GM design engineers need to correct noise issues before the customer purchases the vehicle--noise reduction tape????
