    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.

    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.)

    Pros: Modification friendly!

    Cons: High mileage

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable

    Cons: Not a good choice for a family vehicle

    Pros: Comfortable, big, rubber flooring, tows well

    Cons: City MPG 16-17
    Hwy MPG 20-22

    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.

    Pros: Big enough for the family and all our stuff, has decent power, On Star, sunroof.

    Cons: Factory torque management, cheap GM interior.

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great truck with room for 6 passengers. Has 4 wheel drive for when you get the urge to take a backroad.

    Cons: Your friends will want you to help them move.
