"I got lucky as I found a fully loaded Z71 which had stayed on the dealer's lot for 7 months and was discounted nicely with only 22 miles. I've only had the truck for a coupla weeks, but I've put 1.5k miles on it. I removed the 3rd row seats as they're pretty useless and can now really load up the rear end. The vehicle rides well and comfortably with its Billstein shocks and seems more planted than the stock shocks. The gas mileage is a little disappointing as I average 16.8 mpg, mostly on country roads and highways. Given the heft of this truck, though, it could be worse. My former vehicle was a BMW X5 which I had put 200k on. While I loved that car, the Z71 was half the price of a new Bimmer but hauls twice as much. All in all, the Z71 is pretty cheap luxury."
"I've had the vehicle for 18 months and put 35,000. Handles great on the road and comfort is great. However, transmission went out at 28,000 miles. Dealer promptly fixed it. power lift gate is great. Cup-holders in 2nd row no good. Needed new tires at 30,000 miles. I'd buy another one."
