2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


This is a nice truck but there are some major design flaws. The heat/AC instrument panel is very difficult to use. It takes your eyes off the road too long. Why did they design the fog lights to only work with the lights on? Don't they know that when it's foggy, or blowing snow that the lower the lights are, the better? Also, the low beam lights should be the lower set of lights for the same above reason. Why is the rear floor not flat under the seats? I owned a 2002 Silverado that had more storage room. The 2009 took away alot of storage in the dash and console area. Also the storage in the doors is smaller. I really do think that a "non" truck user designed this new truck.

Best Features

Nice smooth quite ride.

Worst Features

More storage area in console and dash area. Re-design the use of fog lights. Lower lights should be the low beams. Make the heat/AC more user friendly. Make the cruise control "hold" the speed better.
