2011 Chevrolet Silverado K1500 WT 4.8 V8 from North America
Best vehicle so far in my lifetime
Absolutely nothing. It just runs.
After driving my bought-new 1990 Ford F-150 for 21 years, it was time to buy a new truck.
The new 2011 Chevy really won me over when I test drove it.
Looking under the hood, I noticed that there's more room to work on it, do maintenance, etc. than the other brands I looked at. But the only thing I have done is change oil and fluids.
I do my own maintenance and don't modify my vehicles. The dealer never saw it again after I paid cash and drove away in it.
This truck is the Silverado K1500 "Work Truck" basic model and is my primary personal vehicle since July, 2011. My friends kid me, tell me I look like I'm on company time with this white, fleet looking vehicle. :-)
It has manual roll down windows, manual locks which I prefer.
I have no complaints about this truck, I'm not self-important, overly sophisticated, or hard to please.
I like the much cheaper price of the basic model and there is less to go wrong.
I can operate any of the controls (HVAC especially) by feel, without taking my eyes off the road.
The fuel economy is pretty decent for this type of vehicle. Have reached 21 MPG on a highway trip, keeping my speed down to 65MPH.
Will likely drive this truck for over 20 years like my last truck.
I have no affiliation with the auto industry - just offering an honest review.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
