2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab LT 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Like the truck overall, however, the passenger seat belt apparatus on the side of the door rattles every time one goes over a bump. The 4 speed transmission did not perform well when hauling a toy hauler trailer (shifted in and out of higher gears and reved up to around 4500 rpm). Got very poor gas mileage while towing trailer (6mpg) and once when stopped engine compartment smelled like burnt oil. ON-Star didn't indicate any problems with engine or transmission and later Chevy technicians could find nothing wrong. Worried about pulling trailer in actual mountains instead of the Black Hills of SD. Don't like the cloth seats, shows to much lint and is hard to clean.


Best Features

Looks, engine performance of the 5.3, wide opening of the rear doors.


Worst Features

Back seats should recline a little bit more. All should come standard with 6 spd transmission. Replace material on cloth seats so as not to collect lint as bad.

Review

this truck is awful. or should i say "was". it seems like the electrical system was built by infants, because I've gone through hundreds of 10 Amp fuses in the underhood fuse box, as well as 2 computer modules and 3 gauge clusters, and 1 electrical fire. finally i sold the stupid thing. i would never endorse or recommend this truck to anyone looking for a reliable vehicle. this truck let me down almost every morning with a dead battery or a fried relay. with the radio off, you hear many annoying faint rattles that make you wonder why you wasted almost 40 grand for it.


Best Features

looks pretty mean, but getting dated. black interior, 5.3 L v8 is nice on fuel.


Worst Features

face lift, better reliability, and the sloshing gas tank, ride comfort, and some sort of insulation from the engine noise.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab Work Truck 4dr Extended Cab 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

As others here stated, driveline noise, sloshing fuel tank noise and bangs, bumps, thumps, clunks, clangs, uncomfortable squishy, sinking seats, roof line is too low,


Best Features

Looks, deep bed, ground clearance, mirrors, new and improved brake lights.


Worst Features

Learn how to make a truck again and quit cheapening these things and trying to turn them into sports cars, they are trucks they are supposed be big with lots of room and firm seats that keep their comfort from day one, not squishing sinking crap

2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab LTZ 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

DItto, on the complaints, The american car manufactures, just lost me permanently, first i would not chrysler crap, ford screwed me badly in the 80's haven't owned since. All I drove till now was GM, Guess what dummies, no more. Objects and vehicles disappear behind the review mirror, the windshield view area is too shallow (dash to roofline) break squeaks below 5 mph, sloshing fuel tank, drive line clunks, bumps thumps, and the hollow core feeling mush seats lousy.


Best Features

Nothing now, when I sell this piece of garbage I will be.


Worst Features

Fire all the of short term thinkers and go out and hire back the people that retired 20 yrs ago that had some pride in what they made

Review

I bought my Silverado in 10/09 new from the dealer with 36 miles. Currently I have 8,550 and have not had any problems AT ALL. Not even a rattle. I have blue granite Texas Edition extended cab with the 5.3 engine. My mpg has been 16-18 city driving. I have the LT and wish I would have got the LTZ. Sorry you other guys are having so many problems. Are you sure you're not driving an F150?


Best Features

20 inch wheels, chrome, tow package, solid feel, reliable.


Worst Features

Back up camera.
