I have had excellent service from this
vehicle in its' first 25,000 miles.
I'm averaging about 14.9 mpg. On a
long highway run it will go to 16mpg.
I have had two minor issues fixed under
warranty. Exhaust resonance, and a
steering wheel "clunk". Both taken
care of. I have 3 boys and we all go
camping a lot. It hardly even knows it
is pulling a camper and everyone has
plenty of room. Rear seat passengers
have their own heat and a/c vents for
comfort. The ride smooths out once the
truck is loaded a bit so the camping
trips are a real pleasure.
A full guage cluster. I have a tranny
temp. guage in the dash! I love the
heated frontseats. I'll probably never
own another vehicle without them. The
trailer towing package. With it added
to the truck I was ready to tow my
camper the day I drove it off the lot.
I would like to see more substantial
bumpers put on the truck.
The truck had no option for a split
rear window. Note to GM : A split
rear window is a must for campers who
put a topper on the truck and like to
access the bed from the front.
I traded a Ford F-250 Powerstroke for
this truck, and I haven't regretted
it. At this point, I have 5200 miles.
Ride is a bit more jittery than the
Ford. Power is excellent. Fuel
economy is 13 in town, 15 on highway,
thought I don't feel it is completely
broke in. The truck feels very solid.
I just performed my first oil change,
it came at 5100 miles, as was indicated
by the oil change light. I had been
checking the oil level religiously and
it never required any additional oil
from new to the first change. Overall,
I'm very pleased. Oh, I added a Gibson
cat-back stainless exhaust, really
sounds and looks good.
