ReviewBought this used with 49K miles 5 months ago, now has 55k miles. The guy that traded it in thought the truck had electrical issues because blower speeds 1-3 would cut out and the CD player wouldnt eject. I bought the truck with little fear being that Im a technician. Tracked the blower issue down to a loose connection at the connector on the blower resistor. The CD drive was jammed with crumbs/dust, and just needed to be cleaned and lubed. Fixed both at a cost of $0 (probably $500 otherwise) and the truck has been great since. No leaks anywhere and still feels solid. I average 21 in the city, and 25-26 on the highway with the 4 cylinder/M5 combo.
Best FeaturesExterior design. Fuel economy. Smooth shifting 5 speed. Crew cab design
Worst FeaturesImprove interior. 4 cyl power only comes into concern when trying to pass on freeway. But GM is offering the 5.3 V8 in '09. Wish they would offer it with a manual though!
