Love This Truck

I read many of the negative reviews regarding the 2014 model so I waited for the 2015 to come out. I really like this truck. It is very quiet and rides great. The interior fit and finish is excellent. I have 1200 miles on it now with no problems. I drove several 2014 models and they all had a bit of a vibration to them. I believe it was due to flat spots on the Good Year Wrangler tires. I went ATV riding with my sons over the weekend and there was no internet or phone service, so the hotspot in the truck really came in handy. The truck gets great mileage when it utilizes the 4 cyl mode (I think it could stay in 4 cyl mode longer) but seems just OK in 8 cyl mode.

2015 Z71 6.2L PILE OF GARBAGE

Do not buy a Chevy truck period!!!!!!! After spending thousands on the fully loaded Z71 with the 6.2L engine, I had test drove many, so when I saw a certain dealership had one available, I went and bought it. I have had it for a year now and after taking the hunk of junk back to the dealership 5 different times the transmission was still slipping. The truck is back at the dealership and now they tell me it needs a new transmission. Funny how they waited until the time to enact the lemon law passed by one month to admit there is something wrong with the truck. Back to Toyota, after 30 years of Toyota trucks and Honda cars for the wife. We are both going back to Toyota ASAP

2015 Chevy Silverado crewcab

So I purchased my silverado in april of '15 and have had nothing but issues with it since. Around June '15 the high pressure AC line ruptured and caused an AC failure, ok its hot in Texas. Both factory Goodyear tires ruptured in August after only 10k miles and nearly destroyed both factory 20's on the passenger side, GM would not replace, again its Goodyear. Now in January my rear main seal "failed", my service guy's words, caused an large oil puddle in my driveway. This caused the dealership to have to remove the engine and replace the seal and cover, cover? yes the cover had to be replaced as well, because the tech mentioned that he had to perform a seal replacement on another same year truck and the cover was warped. And lastly we are in March of '16 and now my transmission is slipping....bad, I hate this truck and will never buy another Chevy as long as I live.

Best new truck I have owned

This is still a very new truck but what a winner. I traded my 07 Silverado on this one and could not be happier. Decided this time to look at Fords as well as Chevy and GMC. Drove the F-150 and it took the entire test drive for the trucks a/c to cool it down. Big no no for me being from south Florida. First impression of the Silverado was love at first drive. Extremely quiet for what is an "offroad" set up with the Z71 package. Nice tight ride and handling. The biggest change for me is the mileage. Real world driving city and highway on the very first tank 17.5 mpg. Best so far was 21.8! I will never look at another truck again, Chevy for life.

2015 Chevy Silverado Crew Cab LT - 4 year Owner

I purchased this pickup new toward the end of 2015, at a great price. I had the 6ft bed on the Crew Cab LT 4x4 with the 5.3L V8. I've since traded it in. The pros: it was exceptionally comfortable, especially for a tall driver like my (I'm 6'4"), with tons of headroom, legroom and adjustments in the driver's side seat; it was very quiet; it was generally smooth and well behaved on the road, especially for a full sized pickup; it was convenient with the bed for hauling whatever we needed, and had a great deal of storage in the cabin; and it was good in the snow even with the stock tires. It also got surprisingly good gas mileage on the highway thanks to the cylinder deactivation - at times I'd get 26+ mpg on flat trips, with three people in the cab and a bunch of stuff in the bed. I loved the hillstart feature, so I'd never worry about rolling backward down a hill (and there are some bad ones around me)..And the rearview camera (when it worked right - see below) was absolutely essential maneuvering in an urban environment. Cons: I had a leak from day 1 that turned out to be the shark's fin antenna - that was replaced under warranty, and the dealer told me it was a common issue and they were replacing them left and right, leaving me to wonder...why not just fix it from the start? I had several recalls on the truck, e.g. the seat belt tensioner. Right after the warranty ended the pickup started having electrical gremlins. The rearview camera would fail to turn off after shifting back into drive sometimes, leaving me unable to use the head unit for anything (e.g. radio, phone). A few times the head unit was just unresponsive to any input, regardless of the rearview camera, until I shut the truck off. The driver's side window would fail to roll up all the way about 90% of the time by the time I traded in the pickup (it would go all the way up, then back down about 2 cm); I usually could *not* get it to stay up until I shut the engine off completely and restarted, meaning (if I was driving and couldn't stop) I'd get rain coming in. I also found water on the steering wheel toward the end of the time with the pickup and could not locate where the drips were coming from - perhaps the shark's fin again (no moon/sun roof in this pickup)...Finally, the resale value was terrible. GM has put out so many incentives to drive sales that I could not get nearly as much for the truck as I figured, even after quoting Kelly Blue Book and trying multiple dealers. I've driven GM trucks for years. I had a 1992 GMC Sierra 2500, a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 Crew Cab, and a 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab. I love the comfort - like I said, for a tall driver, GM truck's can be hard to beat. The reliability is what gets me hung up now. I just don't have the same faith in the GM trucks anymore. That '92 GMC went 10 years hauling horse trailers and campers and the biggest issue we had with it was a dead alternator and a thermostat that went out about years 7 and 8, respectively. The 2015 Silverado was a more advanced truck in nearly every way, far quieter with a smoother ride (although the 92 Sierra's captain's chairs were better) but those electrical issues, leaks and recalls caused me to lose the GM faith. I miss this pickup in many ways, but I don't miss the nagging little problems that seemed poised to turn into big, expensive repairs. I'm writing this because I use reviews on Edmunds and other places when looking at cars for myself and my family. You may have a very different experience with your pickup, but definitely be aware of the risks when you buy. Have a mechanic you trust go over any used pickup you're thinking of buying. YMMV.
