I drive this truck everyday to work. It's very comfortable, and I feel incredibly safe! When it's not towing a boat or loaded down, it tends to bump along on some of the highways. Also, I personally tend to have a difficult time pulling into straight parking spaces - like an elephant. However, I really like my truck! Absolutely no mechanical issues!

Don't waste your $$$$$.
This thing has more problems than
Enron. Here are just a few.
piston slap (this is my favorite)
burns 1qt oil/1500 miles (25K on truck)
I have been to various dealers with
all of these problems and none of them
have been able to fix any of these.
I will be paying Ford a visit very

Truck uses a quart of oil in about
2,200 miles. Used a quart towing a
boat for 450 miles. Truck smokes.
Dealer service dept. said a quart per
1,000 miles is standard. Dealer
service dept. says today a quart per
2,000 is okay and some smoke. I am
embarrashed when I start the truck and
it smokes. Wish I had my 96 Dodge back
that I traded in. Last Chev. truck I
bought rusted down in 3 years. I
should have learned my lesson and not
have bought another one.
An available PRO TEC composite truck box and optional traction control are the biggest changes for the Silverado this year. New colors have been added and the OnStar vehicle assistance system debuts as a midyear option.
