By Dan on


2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Bought 10/09.

On 10/30 had it in for brakes and belts squealing,

1/12/2010 had it in for the lights dimming while driving (was told the alternator was charging),

2/8 Chevy bow tie decal was replaced because paint peeled off, 4/7 had bow tie replaced again due to peeling,

4/20 right rear shock blew out and had it replaced,

4/26 the fuel tank pressure sensor went out and had to be replaced,

4/27 took to body shop at 8am to get body rubbed out due to the "orange peel" finish all over the truck,

5/5 had to take back again for "orange peel" they missed several spots on the first attempt and left the tailgate covered in swirl marks from the buffer.

Had it in twice for On Star misreading.

Piece of crap so I have no favorite things.
