Well from the recalls to the garbage performance, all the way to quality, this truck is a piece of junk (to put it nicely). I bought this truck brand new for the fact that it was rated (V6) to haul about 7,000 lbs. This truck is completely gutless even without

Had transmission problems from the first month of ownership. GM can't solve the problem. They put band-aids on until the warranty runs out then pretend like they don't know what you're talking about. GM has no morals or core values, they know this is an issue and will not even

King Of The (middle of the) Road

Manufacturer:

Chevrolet

Model:

Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

Middle of the road about everything. Except resale value. A used toothbrush has a higher value retention. The longer I have this truck, the more I find features missing that were in the Tahoe I traded. Its not fast, but not slow. Not great fuel economy, but not bad. No

Pros:Nice colors available.

Cons:Wouldve been nicely equipped 10 years ago.

I bought a 2016 $42000 silverado regular cab LT 4WD Pick up and was very disappointed. The truck has a constant vibration that the service department said that could do nothing about? The fit and finish is very poor. I sold the truck back at a $5500 loss I hated
