Quit making it cheaper

ReviewGM keeps raising the price and
removing quality from the interior. I
have had a 2003, 2004 and now a 2005.
In 04 they took the nice carpeting and
replaced it with the flat cheap stuff
they use now. For 05 they took away
the nice chevy floor mats and put in
cheap $5 Walmart specials and took
away the double visors. For 05 they
also changed the rear end options you
can't get the 3.73 anymore you get
either a 4.10 or 3.42. They also took
away the nice dark charcoal seats
leaving you with tan or light gray.
Both will show the dirt. I pulled the
nice mats out of my 04, even dirty
they look better than the cheap 05's.
Someone should slap their
beancounters. It's a $40000 vehicle.
Best FeaturesThe ride is what keeps me buying them. The hard cover, locking compartments and tail gate are also handy.
Worst FeaturesMake a optional rear cap for it similar to a Jeep wrangler and put anchors in the box floor for a removable van type seat. That would increase the fun factor 10Xs and make it the perfect top-off summer ride. Put back the carpet, dark seats, and floor mats and don't take anything else off it in 06.
