Pros

Seats are quite comfortable (leather heated). Bose sound system is Awesome! Drives smooth and easy. Looks great. Has tow package and tows easy also.

Cons

Exterior plastic:  molding around door handles are cracking(garage kept). Tail gate plastic handle falls off(stuck on with sticky tape from factory). Both front hub bearings went out before 50K miles.

Looks And Comfort — Love the way it looks and the comfort when driving(sitting in it). Was disappointed when I installed aftermarket wheels and tires 20's and the power steering was unable to handle it. I am a mechanic of over 20 years and knew it would break more often than a ford but picked the Chevy for the comfort and looks.

Great Smooth Ride Even When Modified — I like that a truck with this many modifications runs great without issues with high mileage. Can be driven hard and not be a problem. The design is beautiful and practical with spacious room for family and great gas mileage. Hard to beat a good Chevy.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Trouble Free! — Can't beat the reliability of a chevy. The 5.3 motor will not let you down. It has a mix of power and economy. Push button four wheel drive is a must have. Fog lights help out a lot with seeing the deer on the road.

I Love It! — This truck has been extremely reliable and I have never had any serious issues with it. The most expensive non-routine work I have had done was replacing the rear axle seals and those were cheaper than new brakes. LOVE it

Good Truck, Dependable Transportation — We've owned this truck for just over 3 years and it has just over 100 k miles. It runs great and has decent power. I like the interior design just wish GM had spent a few bucks more on some better feeling leather/ plastics. Our kids love the sunroof one nice days and there are plenty of aftermarket support to customize it just how I want it.

Great Truck! — If you're looking for a great deal for a used truck, this is it. You can't beat the quality of a Chevy truck and their ability to handle so much. This truck will get you where you need to go and haul what you need to haul.

Great Truck And Awesome Price — This a great truck at a great price. Plenty of luxury and plenty of room. Will pull good size trailer and haul just about anything. If this is the truck you've been looking for, look no more. This is your lucky day.
