2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The Silverado is a great truck. I had a 2010 F150 with the 5.4 V8 before the Silverado. I admit I trade a lot, and had planned to keep the F150, but there were things happening with the F150 that made me think it was going to have issues in the long run. Thinking about 60k+ miles worried me. When I started looking at a new Truck I looked at the F150, Ram, and the Silverado. The Silverado seems to be a more rounded package for me. For less money I got a lot more truck (The All Star Package) Chevy also had some rebates with the rewards card and 0% financing. The trucks bluetooth seems to work better than the Sync found in Ford


Favorite Features

I like the look of the Silverado OnStar - The remote start is really nice Ride Backup Camera/parking sensors Power Overall Comfort


Suggested Improvements

I would love for it to have the Auto up windows. When talking on the bluetooth the clock disappears which is annoying

Review

Have had truck for 5 months. First truck I have owned but won't be my last as this truck is everything and more than I expected. The ride/comfort is equal to luxury cars I have owned and currently own. The best MPG I have been able to attain is just shy of 20 going 72 MPH for long stretches- but I'm not complaining; I didn't buy the truck for MPG reasons.


Favorite Features

The crew cab is great for back seat riders and kids in car seats. The versatility of truck bed continues to come in handy and I like the ease of locking the truck bed. The arm rest between front seats is finally the right size my wife can put her purse there without complaining she doesn't have a place to put it. On Star and XM radio is nothing new, but it's a nice feature I enjoy. The biggest surprise for me was how comfortable the ride is. There is nothing I dislike about the truck. I only wish I would have included rear parking assist and universal garage door opener.


Suggested Improvements

Inside door handle so low on front doors is awkward.

Review

I have had this truck for a month now and have about 1100 miles on it. No problems so far. Getting 15.9mpg average and most is city driving. Great power, great looking, and great fit and finish sold me. I keep my vehicles about 10yrs and after the last silverado I owned(2002) turned 132000 miles(trouble free) I decided to trade up to the crew cab with all-star package. This truck is a huge step up in performance and features. Especially like the bluetooth feature and the updated interior quality. You really can't go wrong as these trucks hold their value and are very capable vehicles.


Favorite Features

auto 4x4 which allows the 4x4 to engage automatically when needed bluetooth beefy looking front end many features included in all-star pkg


Suggested Improvements

none

Review

At less then 100 miles on a new 2011 the transmission developed a noise and it jolts during low speed shifts. taken back to the twice and service manager says nothing can be done to fix it. $36K plus tax, owned for less than 2 months, and only 1K miles on it and I hate driving my new truck.


Suggested Improvements

fix my transmission!
