2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4dr Extended Cab 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
With 3200 miles on this truck, the doors rattle so bad I need ear plugs. Dealership has no fix for this problem. Fuel gauge sensor broke, two chrome door handles had to be replaced. and the fuel management system is a joke, noise in the drive train after normal braking. No more GM products for me, very disappointed with the quality of this vehicle.
Good ride but have your ear plugs.
Improve your quality, maybe GM should consider assembling these trucks in the US.

I got this truck at the very end of the model year; and I must say the price was right! I traded a 99 Dodge Dakota, which served me extremely well, but was getting long in the tooth. I've put 3K miles on my Silverado so far and am completely satisfied with the handling, power and quality. I must say, I don't care for the weird lint problem on the seat! Otherwise very satisfied. The size and body style does take a little getting used to in getting around town, backing up and parking in tight spaces. My wife's 03 Sequioa is easier to park!
Power is good, build quality seems to be good--especially when you consider how little it cost. No complaints so far.
Tough to maneuver in and out of tight parking spaces, hard to back. I wish GM would stop calling about renewing the Onstar--don't need it and don't want it. What is up with the cloth on the seats (lint)? It did take a little getting used to the awkward interior door handle placement.
2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)
This is my third Chevy truck after an '82 and an '89. Very competent trucks, and I hope this one proves as reliable as my '89 and my brother's '01.
Functionality, Physics - big mass = big safety, 4x4 capabilities, towing capabilities, crew cab has plenty of room for family, lift up seats in rear.
Diesel for 1500. Comparing the Chevy Silverado to my BMW is a stretch, but it brings out some things still lacking in US cars, namely build quality. With less than 1000 miles on the truck, I am disappointed by the number of squeaks, low quality cloth, poor fit and finish, low quality speakers.

The truck is okay but when it comes to giving it gas to fast there is a 7/10 second delay. Chevy knows about it but doing nothing about it. Do not buy a chevy right now due to this problem wait for the fix.
