Pros

Love the power when running correctly. Like the off road package and ability to carry or pull toys. plenty of room for my small family of 4. Comfortable to drive long distances.

Cons

Bought it used and already requiring quite a bit of maintenance but understandable.

Freedom Of Exploration — Bought it from auto nation poor dealing on my part. Just replaced brakes and now having other issues but when running correctly love this truck and have plans to keep up grading it. Its roomy and great on fuel compared to my old Ford Explorer. <3

Great Work Truck. Dependable. — Nothing. Just exactly what I bought it for. Good mileage on the road, 20-21. Great running with good acceleration. Light in the rear end for winter driving, but just added weight to the truck bed to get better traction in bad conditions.

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

Great Ride! — I love this truck. Comfortable Ride, very roomy, love the comfortable seats, good stereo, back doors make it easy for passengers. The only thing negative I can say is gas mileage for a daily commuter with 30 mile one way commute.

Worth The Money You Pay For — I owned this car for roughly 4 years. I never had any major issues with it or breakdowns. It ran pretty smoothly and was reliable. The battery lasted over 10 years which was great! It was great for hauling items. Over all I really like this truck!

Solid, Dependable, Comfortable, Low Maintenance — The Chevy Silverado has a rock solid reputation with the 5.3L motor for being a dependable workhorse and that's exactly what I have experienced with this truck. The quadrasteer option on my truck makes it nice to maneuver and park in tight spaces such as your local Target

This Has Been A Great Truck! — Overall this truck has treated me great. Besides lowing a fuel pump a year after i bought it and 170,000 miles in it has been really reliable and almost no maintenance costs. Just pretty happy with the quality and feel of the truck as a whole.

Overall Very Reliable. Love It — Very reliable. I have made sure to keep the maintenance up on it and have never had any major issues. It has about 130,000 miles on it and runs like the day we got it. Great value for what we paid.

Pros

If your looking for a reliable good truck, mostly highway miles -which is why it has 219,100- but there have been some vehicle updates that was called for at dealer..

Cons

Gas mileage is ok but if you dont mind putting around$100 or so in it to fill it up

Excellent Vehicle — I liked that it was basically maintenance free for now, as the saying goes "dont fix it til its broken" very true, and the power is awesome, no aftermarket exhaust but sounds good w/o one and maybe better with it..
