ReviewAfter owning two GM trucks since 1990, I talked my wife into buying a burb to haul around our four kids. We bought it used with 62k on it. After only a few thousand miles I noticed the auto trans was shifting rough. It turns out the valve body(inside trans)was the culprit. The repair was $700. This burb will flat out roll down the highway-keeping it under 70 IS a problem.We use the 4wd daily to get up our steeeep gravel driveway. It is time for new brake pads,(and rotors I would guess), due to a pulsing feeling during hard braking. Better fuel economy than either of 2500 model pickups 13-18mpg vs. 17-20mpg.
Best Featureshuge interior, powerful truck, looks great
Worst Featuresheavier duty brakes on 1500 models, no such problem on either of my 2500 pickups- auto trans needs improving, again both my pickups were/are manual shift, needs a cdplayer!!
