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


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 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 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.

2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

I've had my LTZ for 13 months and have been generally pleased. Mine is loaded with every option but the NAV. I have been pleased with the overall quality thus far with no issues to note. I'm averaging 15.5 mpg which is great for this vehicle. I love the dash lay out with wood inserts. I do wish the Bose system was a center point system but as it is I'm enjoying it. The 5.3 has good power. I've added so much aftermarket to the truck to enhance my ride. 6 in running boards, mud guards,bug deflector, lift kit for the front (I hated the lower front end) now it looks level across the entire truck,rear wheel well liners, recon light bar for under tailgate, db exhaust system(cool)under seat storage etc.


Best Features

Looks inside and out, heated seats great for Buffalo, NY winter. 4 wheel drive, blue tooth (makes me forget about on star) space of crew cab, turn signals built in mirrors, rear view camera built rear view mirror


Worst Features

improve Bose to center point system, level front end with rear (I hated the dip in the front) I wish it would have come with rear wheel well liners standard as it give the appearance of a finished product,
