2008 Chevrolet Silverado LS 5.3 from North America
It's a work truck and gets the job done
I notice 3 things wrong with this vehicle.
1. Will be sitting at a stop sign / light, and the vehicle thumps. The first time it happened, I thought someone hit my rear end.
2. The stock audio system mid speakers (in the doors) both cut out randomly for no reason, not due to any adjustments.
3. The female (receiver) part of the driver's side seat belt has failed once; it would not lock to the male part. I replaced that with a dealer OEM part, and now this one is starting to do the same thing; that's several attempts to latch the belt in.
A final word are the tire sensors; they don't last over 5 years and are expensive to replace.
I have been happy with it for the most part, but for a full size truck the cab is a little cramped with not much room to lean the seat back (standard cab) without hitting the back wall, or losing leg room by moving the seat forward to give more room to lean the seat back. The engine and drive train have been solid. Would like to have been able to disable the tire sensor warning light when the sensors started failing, but it is mixed in with other computer stuff; over $65 dollars per wheel to replace.
The huge plastic head lights seem overkill, and are starting to get that plastic fog look. Early and later models had much smaller head lights. And light colored cloth seats in a truck should be a no no.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
