1997 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 305 V8 from North America
The car is not bad, except for a coolant leak
Leaking coolant for 7 years. Can't find the source. Assume it is related to the intake gasket. Leak is found in other GM models as well and in prior model years. It is ridiculous that GM will not fix this under warranty.
Besides the coolant leak, I have been satisfied with the performance of the vehicle. I will not purchase another GM vehicle based on the lack of responsiveness from the manufacturer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have also had a mystery coolant leak in my GMC CK1500 5.0. I just put it in the shop for an intake gasket that just let loose last week. Coolant was gushing all over the top of the engine. I did put some Prestone radiator sealer in it about 3 years ago to band-aid the problem, but last week my band-aid got ripped off.
Good luck with your coolant leak, I would start shopping around for a good intake gasket, and a good price to put it on.
