"HAD TRUCK FOR 2 YRS DRIVE TO WORK DAILY NO PROBLEMS. BETTER RIDE THAN MY OLD 99 BUT PROBABLY DUE TO EXT CAB. HAD A SPRAY IN LINER BEFORE PICKED UP ITS GREAT NO SLIDING BAGGAGE. TAKE BACK TO DEALER FOR OIL CHANGES, GREAT DEALER SERVICE. 1 MINOR RECALL SO FAR
"I'm very happy with my 08 Silverado.. I got the 4.3L V-6 to save a little money, but I was worried that it wouldn't have enought power and I'd be right back at the dealer to trade it in. To my surprise it has plenty for someone who dosen't do alot of hauling, or light stuff such as a jet ski, motorcycle, lawnmower, ect... I wont be trading it in anytime soon!!"
"I just bought my '09 silverado Z71 w/ LT1 package and it is everything I read about it. I bought it for 29,999 a week ago and kbb values it at 35k. The power is awesome, can't wait to pull a trailer. I am a contractor and the multi-tude of storage areas makes my job a breeze. thanx GM"
"I own a 2009 Ext Cab 4x4. This truck is amazing and you will love it. The only negative is the material used on the cloth seats, everything will stick to it and very hard to clean. I would have got leather seats if had to do it all over again. Still a awesome truck, love it!"
"I feel chevy did a good job with the new body style. It looks good inside and out and is much more comfortable than previous generations however, my truck now has 40k miles & has developed rattles and squeaks. At 34k the transmission had to be replaced due to a manufacturing defect "according to the local transmission shop replacing the unit for the dealership" The 4.8 V-8 is strong & smooth. Handles a 3500 lb trailer like a pro. ON STAR NAVIGATION IS WORTHLESS IN RURAL AREAS.... other than that, I'm happy with it."
"Best truck ive ever owned. Just got back from a 4000 mile trip and couldnt be more pleased. Averaged 20mpg at reasonable speeds. The truck rides beautifully. No GM jitter to speak of. Handles well in off-road situations (light but still has the power)."
