Have been back and forth to the dealer many times, problem is the transmission jerks and it's so intermittent (once a week) they cannot pinpoint the problem. Something is not right.

I'll never buy the first model year again. Was in the shop on a regular basis for maintenance (under Warranty). Water Pump, Computer, Electrical short, etc. Looks Great, Rides Great, 4Cyl for what we use it for is enough, but I was not impressed with the reliability.

Would not buy again for those 2 reason, also the doors are not a great fit. Right rear door has a larger crack than the left rear and it sticks out from the truck body. The fit and finish is just not there.

Truck lags excessively when slowing down and wanting to take off again such as at a turning lane. Truck only averages 16.7 miles / gallon on street. MY previous big 8 cylinder Silverado did that. If Id known that I wouldve bought a full size truck.
