2009 Chevrolet Silverado LT 5.3L V8 from North America
Well-made, solid truck with few flaws
Driver seat (power) no longer articulates completely; happened at approx. 120,000 miles.
Rear window controls in driver door don't roll down windows, but roll them up.
Center console handle (plastic) has broken off and won't latch.
Water pump made a ton of noise beginning at approx. 135,000 miles - replaced it myself.
Transmission hesitates from stop to first gear and shifts hard sometimes - began at approx. 140,000 miles.
One wheel has a flaw that causes the tire to lose pressure slowly - since day one.
Engine has plenty of power, always starts, runs more like a car with 60-70,000 miles than one with 150,000 miles.
Regular maintenance has been performed, though not always perfectly on schedule.
Changed out tires twice, brake pads once, and drained / refilled transmission fluid once.
I installed a K&N air filter almost day one.
The truck has been in 2 accidents; one at the front right fender and one at the driver's door.
Have pulled trailers less than 5 times, but has a towing package.
The truck has a chrome package and 20" wheels.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
