An exceptional truck!
The Chevy Silverado 1500 LS, Extended Cab, 4x4 with the Z71 package is an excellent pickup.
I've only had the truck for about 6 months and I've already got 16,965 mile on it with no major problems. The only problem I've noticed was that the driver console displayed that the 4 wheel drive needed to be checked, but this went away after the next start. I've used the 4 wheel drive since then several times with no further problems.
I currently get about 16.8 MPG on the highway and average 15.5 overall. I've not tracked the city MPG, but I'm sure that it is probably around 10-11 MPG.
The sound produced by the Bose speakers were a pleasant surprise and I would recommend them to everyone.
The six way adjustable seating is very comfortable and eliminated my back problems while driving long distances. I typically drive an average of 2800 miles per month with about 2000 of the miles being highway mileage.
The coin holder located under the tilt lid in the center console is a little inconvenient, especially if you keep item on top of the lid. You have to remove the items first or they will fall between the passenger seat and the console.
If I were to purchase another pickup right now, I would definitely purchase another Siverado pickup, but.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
