"Bought this truck at the 5 year old mark, it had 89,000 miles on it, 7 years ago. It now has 261,000 miles, and runs like a sewing machine. Every day that I drive it, I am continuously surprised at how much power it truly has (5.3 v8), and how smooth it accelerates, shifts, and drives. Original engine and transmission. Replaced the following items only: battery, alternator, water pump (finally at 225,000 miles), finally replaced spark plugs and wires at 225,000 miles, replaced fuel pump at 165,000 miles (I run it very very low on gas constantly, so that may have lasted longer if not for that), replaced shocks once (installed Bilsteins - highly recommend these), replaced tires twice, and replaced front and rear brake pads ONCE. None of this is an exaggeration or fictitious, and I don't take it easy on the truck either. I use synthetic oil and change it every 10,000 miles. This truck has sold me on Chevrolet trucks period. Many others I have talked to have had similar experiences - they run forever. They drive very nicely too, I am very impressed and very happy. The truck does not burn or use any oil at 261,000 miles and runs flawlessly, has never left me stranded, and I love it, not because I'm a "fan", but because it has treated me very well."

"I had this truck for about 10 years and its been a pleasure to own. Ive worked it hard hauling heavy loads in the box and on a trailer. It has cost me next to nothing to own with very minor repairs. fuel pump,starter,front rihgt hub,and knock sensors, that is it besides regular wear and tear parts."
