Review

The truck is more care like than truck. The suspension is soft and bottoms under heavy load. I've never attained the fuel economy declaired, only about 13 to 17 at best. It's been recalled once. The brakes have never been grippy enough. GM says the dashboard may go out at 70,000 miles and the stearing column center shaft went out twice. Now the left front wheel bearing is going out. The truck has not been abused!! I want to buy American but the quality needs to improve before that happens again! Most of the miles are highway miles with lite loads. The repairs have been very pricy. I purchased the truck new and there are only 39000 miles on it.

Favorite Features

Very comfortable seats. The 5.3 engine is the best part and provides plenty of power and torque. The tires will probably last 50,000 miles and it's good looking.

Suggested Improvements

The dashboard is cheap! The ride is too soft and their is not enough suspension under load. Way too many problems for the miles driven. Improve the durable quality. Make it tough and gritty. If you buy one figure on buying an extended warranty!
