Summary:

Reliable gas guzzler

Faults:

Replaced alternator at 61,000 miles.

Replaced positive battery terminal and lug at 60,000 miles.

General Comments:

5.7L gas engine is powerful, but a gas guzzler (15 MPG city/18 Highway).

Cab is roomy and controls are well placed, but rear seating leg room is limited.

Rear leaf suspension on Z-71 too firm even with Blistein shocks.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
