2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this truck in May. To date I have logged nearly 13,000 miles. The truck is quiet, dependable, and has reasonable fuel mileage. All the controls are thoughtfully laid out and the truck handles very well in city and highway traffic. The Onstar is highly overated. I got lost in the Canadian north and they were unable to help me find my way out. The phone option also fails when you get into isolated areas. It's a little meager on power but it is only a 4.8. Shifts down a lot in the wind. Makes up for it in decent mileage.
Quiet ride. Comfortable seat on long trips. Nice handling. Roll down extended cab windows.
Interior fabric and plastic trim a little on the cheap side. Onstar not very reliable. Expensive for what you get. Not worth renewing. Carry a cell instead.
