2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


My previous 4.3L managed almost 24 mpg on the highway, however my 2008 gets 14 to 15 mpg. I can't roll the window down with a container in the drink holder, this appears typical as I am finding more and more ergonomic issues e.g. try getting the jack out of a standard cab. I installed mud flaps over the weekend an noticed how easily the rear fenders flexed. I crawled under the truck and took a closer look at build quality; and it appears that I am the victim of excessive cost cutting. When compared with my previous GM pickups my 2008 is really a disappointment.

Best Features

Seats are comfortable and the styling is nice.

Worst Features

The fuel economy of this truck is ridiculous and I am confused as to what GM is thinking. Body build quality is poor in some areas.
