Happy with 2009 Silverado
By Kevin on
2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Extended Cab 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Only had the truck for 2 months, but am very pleased at this point. Tows like a dream with the 6 speed tranny. Averaging 18 mpg, but that's a mix of in town and some highway. I expect it to get better once broken in; only 2,000 on the truck at this point. Put a 70 series flowmaster muffler and duals on it. It sounds so good. Took advantage of the zero interest rate back durning July's promotion. Overall am very pleased.
Great power, sweet ride on the highway; little noise. Gas mileage is pretty good for a truck. Bucket front seats are nice. The rear seat folds up super easy; I understand this was an issue on prior year models.
Dissapointed with 2 exterior items. The 17in. stock wheels have a Toy look. GM really should put at least 18's on it. I hate the black door handles and mirrors. GM should really color match all models; not just the 45 grand LTZ.
