I've had the truck for 10 years and use it as a truck. We pull a travel trailer and have made many long trips. The Chevy is holding up very, very well at 130,000 miles. I expect it to last to 200,000 miles. The only problem I had was head gasket failure due to poor coolant. The coolant was rated for 100k miles but lasted only 60k. The stock sound system is incredible. Fuel mileage is 15 - 16 on the highway; 10 mpg pulling a trailer. The truck has done everything I've asked and we are planning a 12 month trip with it and the travel trailer beginning this summer. Chevy did a good job when they built this vehicle. I made a good purchase.

I’ve had my 98 Cheyenne for several years and besides brake pads and two new batteries this truck has asked me for nothing. I’ve owned 2 t-100 Toyota’s and they were very dependable but one had the frame rot- kind of a big problem and the other was just plain rusty and I soon tired of showing up to work with a wet crotch and the old man jokes that went along with it. I decided to buy my brothers plow truck- the Chevy. Ok Toyota has a great reputation but the old Chevy always starts on -30 below weather, never needs to get plugged in and does the 12 plow contracts that I have to supplement my social security. It doesn’t get great mileage but considering it’s driving around with a plow on it I can’t [non-permissible content removed] about it. It’s been a dependable friend and has asked for very little. The interior is a bit plastic but surprisingly has held up well and the body has only a bit of surface rust. The odometer has passed 340,000 miles and I wouldn’t hesitate to drive it across the country tomorrow. I have been convinced that the domestic trucks -Chevy, Ford and dodge have gotten a bad reputation when compared to Toyota. The Toyota’s are a good truck but there’s no way my Toyota’s could have done what my old Chevy has. I recommend them highly.
