Nice Truck - Poor Reliability
By envelopo on


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


After returning to the dealer 7 times for issues ranging from a door rattle they did not fix, various squeaks, engine oil usage, a bad torque converter and electrical issues, I traded the truck in on a 2010 Tundra. A pity really, since the silverado is overall a nice truck with great features and really the best looks of any out there. Wish it would have worked out for me but I need my truck for work and cannot afford to be hanging around a the dealership waiting for repairs to a brand new truck.

Best Features

Styling, power, handling, seats, features

Worst Features

Improve build quality, loose or adjust the variable displacement, upcontent the truck with better components like the 9.5" rear end, better transmission, better quality upholstery, etc. everything seems value engineered.
