    Buy Chevy — This truck is sick. Most comfortable truck manufactured, and still can do everything its competitors can. Very good gas mileage, averages about 22 miles per gallon. Doesn't handle like any old truck, and you roll in style. Truck is legit

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Not 4x4

    Well Rounded Full-size — The 2008 Silverado is a hard all-around truck to beat. Exterior and Interior build qualities are second to none. Combine that with the solid frame and you will not hear any squeaks or rattles. The suspension is smooth on road but perhaps not tough enough for the trails. The 5.3 engine offers better fuel economy than most. However, the compromise is a lack in power compared to most full-size pickups. In conclusion, this vehicle does everything it was built to do and has the build quality to keep it that way for years to come.

    Pros: Very solid construction.  Better Fuel economy than competitors.  User friendly controls. Auto 4x4

    Cons: Rear Drum Brakes.  Uncomfortable seats.  Lack of Power.

    Good Overall Truck — Overall Excellent truck. Looking for a 4 wheel drive. Only reason I'm considering selling. Pulls my boat with no problem. Large enough for a big family, or moving large items. Black exterior with black and silver cloth interior. XM Stereo. On Star ready.

    Pros: Good Power, Black, New Tires

    Cons: A couple cosmetic scratches. Airbag Deployed. No structual damage. All cosmetic, been repaired. Reciepts for work.

    Buy One — the v6 feels more like a smaller v8 and i get about 17 to 20 mpg depending on how i drive. For a half ton you'd be surprised, I've had 2400 lbs in it and pulled a trailer weighing 4700lbs.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: good gas mileage for a full size truck

    Cons: N/A

    Overall...its A Nice Truck — This truck is the ideal truck for anybody who is into a mean truck. I know this truck is small but it has never dissapointed me. the engine has done everything i have thrown at it and has done more. there are many many different models but again i recommend this truck, engine, and everything it stands for.

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

    Pros: How small it is but also how feirce it is.

    Cons: Sometimes i wish it was an extended cab.

    Excellent For Work And Pleasure — Excellent towing, reliable, decent fuel economy, lots of power, comfortable ride and lots of room, bed could be a little bigger and the transmission could use one more gear as it shifts up and down a lot goin up hills

My family has been diehard G.M and i will be buying a Honda next!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles better than older body style, Brakes are better than older body style,Gas mileage is better than older body style 18 to 20 on the highway

    Cons: Remote Start has a mind of its own, Fuel pump issues,overheating issues,instrument cluster issues,battery issues,factory tire issues,Catalityic converter issues.

    Silverado 1500 4wd — Performance-Acceleration is good..packs a punch off the line..5.3 l vortec has plenty of power...but the fun really starts when you take this bad boy off roading..ground clearance is good but i would add the leveling kit to add a little bit more clearance on the front.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great Power, Good Towing Capacity, Sucking Gas and Hauling Mass lol

    Cons: None

    08 Silverado Wt — Do yourself a favor and get the 4.8 V8. The 4.3 is archaic and uncompetitive . However it did return 18 mpg city and 22 highway. Very solid truck. I use it to haul random household items and tow antique cars.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Bullet proof engine, class leading build quality.

    Cons: 4.3 is underpowered, needs a 5 or 6 speed trans.
