Pros

Looks great.  Drives great.  Feels great.  Lasts forever.
I have a silver '99 Z71 with 255k on it and it rides like a cadillac :)

Cons

My dogs hair is way too visible on the black cloth seats.  The inside rarely looks clean.

Very Impressed — I have never driven anything other than a chevy. My first truck was a 93 Chevy Z71. My second truck was a 99 Z71, my third truck a 2010 4x4 LS and this truck is a 2009 LT1 4x4 Crew Cab. Nothings going to change in this family.

Good American Made Truck — I love this truck. With the exception of the gas mileage I like everything about this truck. You can haul pretty much anything the average person would need to. Good off road capabilities if your willing to chance scratching up this 4x4 Cadillac lol.

Pros

Drives really easy and feels safe. Lots of interior space and plenty of room for backseat passengers to be comortable. Can even fit a carseat in the back! Leather interior easy to keep clean and wipe off dirt from. It's been an easy car to maintain and hasn't been in the shop for anything major. No major bling spots. Gas mileage is improved with the bed cap I have on mine.

Cons

Gas mileage is that of a truck...doesn't compare to car! No complaints at all about this truck!

Love It! — I have been extremely pleased with this vehicle. Have not had any major maintenance issue. Drives great and hauls great. Looks awesome with oversized tires and running boards. Gas mileage has improved with the additional bed cap. Great quality leather in interior. Lots of room and can fit several passengers comfortably!

Outstanding — I like everything about this truck! Unfortunately for me, I need to downsize my transportation for the comuting I will be doing. This truck has been perfect for my family of four and will be perfect for someone elses family.

Happy With It — over all happy with the truck. I though with the 6 spd trans and 3:42 rear gears the mileage would be better then the 2004 GMC crew cab I had with 5.3L and only the 4 spd trans...it's not

Sexy Yet Tough Gas Guzzler — Great truck. Very reliable, mean looking, tough. I love chevy's design in their new trucks. And the things I don't like are easy to replace. You can beat Chevy's 5.3 either. Yeah, Ford owners are going to talk high and mighty about how fast their car or truck might be. But I can guarantee you I can make my truck faster, cheaper.

Get Yourself One1 — Awesome farm truck, a little rough on the road on long trips due to heavy duty shocks, but mostly used to haul mulch, dirt, etc. os trade off is worth it. Uses gas. But it looks good on me, so cost is worth it!
