Great Truck — It has wonderful power, and good handling. It has wonderful build quality, american built. It has a sleek exterior. The gas mileage is horrible, but on the other hand it is an older truck. And I find it fun to drive because it sounds like a train.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

I Primarily Use This Vehicle For Everything — This truck has been my constant daily driver for 6 years now. It, for the most part, gives me no problems. it just goes where I want it to. Right now, 12/12/2010, The odometer has 416,167 miles on it. I drove it 140 miles last night. No problems what so ever. WHAT MORE DOES A PERSON NEED?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Great Riding, Great Handling, Pretty Good Power, Good On Gas, Very Good Truck

Brakes could be a lot better, needs disc brakes in the back

I Love This Thing — Has decent power stock, but definately needs a cam and vortec heads to open it up, handles quite well for a full size truck, build quality is good, normal mantienance is all it needs, gets good gas mileage as well even with a 350.

Hard To Kill But I Did It — i beat the crap out of it and died after i abused it for 200,000miles in 2 1/2 years, it regularly go 20 mpg out of a 350 auto and it would follow a jeep anywhere in the woods and it was all stock!

Chevrolet C1500 — this was a great truck. It pretty much towed a trailer of one kind or another for its whole life.Got rid of it with 300000 on the clock cause ontario winters were getting the best of it.This truck averaged 17 mpg rarely broke down.(one fuel pump,one transmission(probably due to all the towing),one ignition module).The rest just regular maintenance. If it wasnt for the ontario road salt causing it to rot away I would have kept it forever.It still rode and drove good when I got rid of it.

This truck has been great. I have had it nearly 20 years now and only use it in the summer. It is becoming a bit of a collectors item as the rest on this generation of trucks is wearing out. Read More
