Great Truck. I drive a good number of miles a year and I’m very pleased with this truck. I believe that the 2WD has a much smoother ride that the Z71 (4WD), and since I have little use of the 4WD, that was an easy choice. The 5.3 L V8 has more than enough power to jump up and pass a truck on a two lane road. The heated, leather, power everything seats also are nice. I put a K&N air filter in it the first week I bought it and run Castrol Syntec 20W-50 year round. I have had no problems.
5.3 L V8, the smooth ride and the heated leather seats
My only problem is that the seatbelt seems to rub the lower left side of the truck when I get it. It's almost rubbed a hole in the leather.

The 2WD Silverado is a great choice for
someone who needs a truck, but also
does not want the gas mileage of a 4WD
truck. I opted for the locking
differential. With a little weight in
the bed at winter time, my truck has
yet to get stuck. I love the
comfortable and smooth ride and the
power from the 5.3 liter engine. I
have been able to achieve just over 20
MPG on long distance trips which I feel
is outstanding for a truck of this
size. Go buy one - you won't regret

This is one of the best trucks I have
ever owned. My wife and I also own a
Toyota Tacoma Pre-runner that wears me
out on long trips. My Z71 Silverado is
so comfortable, I believe that I could
drive it across the country and not
even be sore at the end of the trip.
The power and the 4WD has never let me
down when called upon.
This is the best truck I ever owned.
No major problems except for air
conditioning belt, and replaced
brakes at 7,000 miles now have 52,000
miles and no problems. Captian chairs
excellent heated seat's are great in
winter time. Only problem with
interior, is the back seat does not
give enough leg room for my growing
kids.I pull a 5,000lb horse trailer in
the MT, and I cant tell it's there. I
look forward to up grading to the
2500HD crew cab on day..
If you want a good family truck get
heated seats, temp in rear view
