This truck has been perfectly reliable from day one. I have not yet had a need to return to the dealer for service.
The transmission is perfect. Super smooth shifts, and it always is in the proper gear.
Fuel economy is pretty good. I've gotten as high as 18.5 mpg. In the winter, I was getting around 14.5, mostly due to the fact that I let it warm up in the driveway for 10 minutes.
This thing on the freeway is silent. There is hardly any wind or road noise. I don't even need to turn the radio up.
Seats and driving position are fantastic. Plenty of room and a great view out the windshield.
Factory dual exhaust, bucket seats with console, and 20 inch chrome wheels make this thing like a modern muscle truck.
With a MSRP of just over 36k, this thing is expensive. I did manage to get quite a bit taken off of that, but that is a lot of money for a regular cab truck.
*Just a side note, I am the original poster of the 2007 Silverado survey with "mistake" in the title, so I am relatively picky about my vehicles.
I'm happy to say that after a nasty Northern Ohio winter, there is zero rust or paint flakes on this vehicle. I did however get a set of steel wheels with all terrain tires in order to get through the snow.
