OK so far

ReviewI searched for consumer reviews of this vehicle but they are few and far between, so...here is mine. So far (1300 miles) the truck has been just about perfect. Overall fuel economy, which includes towing a small boat, is 18.6. Biggest thing to get used to is the "Uh-oh" feeling at stoplights when you think the motor has stalled. There are some small stutters switching back and forth between electric and gas propulsion, but nothing too noticeable. Comfort is great, cornering is quite good, all controls are user friendly. Acceleration is great. One small problem, common among Silverados, I hear, is that the tire monitoring system was flashing a warning due to some computer glitch--fixed.
Best FeaturesMileage, cool hybrid features, ride, seat comfort(except for useless lumbar support in the 6-way seat) space, fit and finish.
Worst FeaturesGrips/handles above windows for driver and front passenger; better, less "muddy" radio; flashier hybrid instrument/gauges, like Prius.
