ReviewAll in all a descent truck, much better than the previous models. Much improved leather surfacing and features that were never on a truck before. Now for the bad stuff... Paint started peeling after a month, GM told me I did something to it, not noticable to most people but we know it's there. POOR gas mileage, 11 mpg anywhere I go. Harder ride than my dads Ford 1 Ton dually. Knocks with 89 octane (use 91 and it goes away). Auto shutoff at 96mph has to be fixed with a hypertech unit to reach 127 actual top end. Needs bigger stock tires for offroad use. No aftermarket lift kit that I can find.
Best FeaturesOnstar (when it works), Autolamps, improved leather in LT Package, Climate control A/C.
Worst FeaturesImprove the fuel economy, this is basically a luxury vehicle after all. Longer standard warranty, or an affordable extended warranty.
