Long lasting, dependaple, never had a major repair in 168K miles.  Does not leak a drop of oil. Every item is working.  

Cons

No 4th door on drivers side.

Like A Rock — Great truck! Has never caused me a moments problem. I am religious about Preventive Maintenance. I still enjoy driving it. The only thing I had to replace in twelve years was the front door speakers Replacing a headlight takes less than two minutes. I am a Chevy Truck fan for life because of this rig.

Pros

I've had my Silverado since late 2004. Never had any problems and she's always came thru for me thru thick and thin. I love it. Started out with 45K, now has 108K as of 4/30/2013.

Cons

Gas mileage, mainly, but still not horrible for a full size truck.

She's Been Awesome, But Looking For More "muscle" — Mainly, she has more sentimental value than anything. I lost my mother early 2004 and was left with a small inheritance. In need of a vehicle, I used the inheritance for the truck so its like the last thing my mother bought for me.

Great Truck. — Performance: Great truck. Nice engine in it. Has great acceleration. Brakes are good. Good handling. Could have a better turn radius but it works! This truck is soooo much fun to drive. It has a good appearance, both interior and exterior.

Nice Weekend Truck — My truck is a good weekend work horse. It gets about 16 mpg but has enough power to pull all my toys. I want to upgrade the engine so get better gas millage and more power. Its great for carrying everything from wood, to furniture. Its a great truck for sure.

Great Truck — I love this truck works well. I enjoy driving it has a great stance only down side is that it has more power then the weight that it can handle. I lifted mine with a 2'' leveling which was a tremendous help with clearance

Keeper — I bought with 10,000 miles and now have 135,000, 1 set of brakes and 1 tune up,1fanbelt,2 batteries, 3rd set of tires and 14 years.... cheap operation during those years.... I would love to have a new vehicle(truck) but just can't justify cost vs operations delivered. In other words I'm not done wearing this one out and a new one won't do anything the old won't do!

Awesome Truck — In majority only the size, I`m a small person, and is a bit large for my taste, other then that nothing to say about it. No major issues whatsoever I had it regularly maintained, Is a truck if you take care of it he will take care of you. A++++++

Nice Truck! — It's my farm truck, it takes a licking and keeps on trucking... I use it to haul a 16' trailer with a 7,000 Bobcat and it works great for that. Wish it had a long box, didn't realize that until after I bought it...oops! But hey, I paid $4k for it, whaddya expect?
