2002 Silverado — Had to get a bigger truck to tow a skid loader around in the winter time. Even though it only has the 4.8 litre engine, it still had plenty to tow. It gets around 16-17 miles to the gallon. Working on the appearance. Has chrome flames in the grille, and chrome flames behind the 1500 on the passenger doors. Has a soft tonno cover and a tent that I purchased for the bed. Soon it will have a chrome brushguard up front. Replaced front and rear pads and rotors, but it still has a slight vibration when braking somewhat hard. I've replaced both front hubs, 1 at around 90,000 miles and the other at around 130,000. Everyone that rides in it is impressed with how it rides. I don't really notice it because I've always had trucks.

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.
