This truck sold me on Chevy and the 5.3L Vortec engine
At about 90,000 miles the passenger window regulator went out.
Every so often the transmission slips when taking off from a stop. But this has not happened enough to warrant a visit to the shop, since it only happens for a second.
Overall this truck has seriously exceeded my expectations! I never cared one way or the other between Chevy and Ford, but this truck with the 5.3L Vortec engines has made me a Chevy truck guy.
I pulled my wife's Mini Cooper on a Uhaul trailer moving from FL to MT with 125,000 miles on the dial without a hitch. The only issue I had was when we side tracked into the Black Hills of SD. I had to take the Mini off the trailer coming out of the steep hills. I don't think the computer had enough time to acclimate to the thinner air in the mountains.
Other than routine items; tires, brakes, belts, etc., I have done nothing to the engine or tranny. There currently is an oil leak, but I have not investigated it much. I think the oil drain plug needs a new crush washer. I had the truck looked over to get it ready for winter, and no oil link was found.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
