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.
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.
First I want everyone to know I was a loyal GM truck person. This is the 6th new truck I have purchased since 1990. All GMC or Chevy. This 2015 Silverado has really bad vibration issues and Chevy does not seem to care and has not resolved the issue. It has been in the shop 5 times and all they want to do is balance the tires and replace wheels and tires. My 2007 Sierra with 145,000 miles has a better ride and no vibration on the same roads but the service people want to blame the road. I will be going through BBB lemon law paperwork this week. The latest loaner they gave me had 100 miles on it and it is a shaker also, lists of vibration. Warning everyone, be careful because GM won't work with you if you have one of these. At 9,000 miles transmission went out and was replaced by GM. Still did not fix the vibration issues at highway speeds. I was finally so frustrated, I sold the truck.
I started bringing my truck in for service on vibration/ shaking and Radio issues at 370 miles, I now have 12,442 and have just completed my 6th and Final Repair Attempt with little to no change. There are other issues with the Transmission, Engine and Active Fuel Management System, again none have been fixed. I will be filing lemon law this week. Did I mention that GM commits fraud with their tires? Check your window sticker, if you paid for "upgraded All Terrain Tires" you likely got Goodyear Wrangler SR-A's, which is a Highway All-Season Tire per multiple tire shops, and even the mechanics at the dealers I've gone to. I contacted GM by phone multiple times regarding this, and got the following response "That is the tire that comes on the vehicle, there is nothing we are going to do".
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
