2009 Chevy 1500 — Great truck for every day driving and has lots of power to have fun with. Has great trailering ability. Lots of room in the cab. Too much plastic on the body for my liking but thats just me. Overall a great truck

My Review — Driving around town to driving off road, this truck performs very well. When stomping on the throttle on the highway, it takes a few seconds to get the revs up, but when the 238 horses kick in, look out! The look of the truck is classy and can go from the off road scene to the night out on the town scene with ease.

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!

Great Truck For The Money — Everything about the truck is great, but it would be even greater if GM would consider putting cabin filters back in them. Also, my 2001 Silverado LT came with leather seats, but you have to really ante up to get leather now.

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.

My Awesome Truck — the truck is good, it has four tires on the ground and one just above the ground. It has two doors and a tailgate.The windows can go up and down if they are not frozen. it has whippers to take the snow and rain off the wind shield . I think its a good truck.

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

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!
