2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Bought this PU new at end of March 2008. I love the truck. 2 problems I have had are the placement of rear exhaust pipe under the chrome rear bumper, it causes spot rusting on the bumper. You have to stay on it or it will eventually rust away. Also, my powertrain control module went out after about 11 months. Truck would not run period. No one I have talked to has heard of this part going out. No problems the last 13 months. This truck is a joy to drive. In the summer I can get 20-22 mpg on the highway on long trips. Around town I get 16-18 on the DIC. Subtract 1 mpg when hand calib. Winter mileage runs about 14-15 in town. Also, damaged black spoiler in frnt hitting snow drift, its 2 low.

Best Features

Heated seats & windshield washer fluid. Bose stereo, auto folding mirrors. XM for life.

Worst Features

Raise the front end, fix the tailpipe design issue with the rusting.
