I can only think of one problem with the truck, the fuel pump is about to go, and GM's piston slap problem. It doesn't affect performance.
This truck serves us well. We use it in the city, at the deer lease, and everywhere in between.
Unlike most people, we have had no problems with this truck until now at 145000 miles. The fuel pump is getting ready to go, but we'll put the money and work into it, and it'll be going strong again.
As for GM's piston slap problem, it has it, but since it developed it, we have noticed no decline in the performance of the truck. We also get 21 mpg on the highway.
These trucks, and I suspect most trucks (even the foreign ones if you want to take that route) will last more than their lifespan as long as you keep them maintained and lubed properly.
A/C blows cold as the day we got it, and it tows our 21ft boat perfectly.
We like everything about this truck, and will probably continue to buy from GM if this truck ever quits on us.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
