Guess who everybody calls when they need to move there large machinery or 31' Airstream? I have the 1500HD Crew Cab 4x4, and this thing tows like a monster, and is awesome in Colorado winters. It has a 4L80, reinforced suspension, type 5 hitch, etc etc etc. I think it's rated to tow 10,000!!! Don't let the 1500 fool you, it's more like a 2500, in fact I was told the 1500HD, is a 2500 right down to the 10 lug wheels, and class E 10 layer tires. I towed some pretty heavy stuff in the mile high city, and this sucker doesn't blink an eye. It has 65K miles, and I only had to replace a couple of things. The instrument cluster (warrantee) and the oil pressure sender ($30 bucks). Oh and a couple of fuses, but that was caused by a rental trainer. I always keep spares in my center console now. The only thing I added was a K&N air cleaner kit. Been meaning to add anchors on the bed floor, and maybe a front hitch. I save a lot of people in the winter time, and end up pulling 4 or 5 cars a year out of ditches and what not. Anywho It's a great truck, and I'm so glad I bought it... Wasn't cheap when I bought it (28,000), but worth every penny.

i,m the 2nd owner of my silverado. I like this truck very much. I have owned it for almost 7 years and only 1 issue aside from routine maintenance. That issue was replacing a steering shaft in the steering column. It cost me $140.00. My truck only has 63000 miles on it but it has been rock solid. No leaks of any kind. My only complaint is the fuel mileage, 13-14 in the winter, 15-16 in the summer. Other than that, very satisfied.

So, let's face it. Every car needs a name.mine is Brutus! Lol bought used from my. I'm the second owner. I love the comfort, the style, and how sturdy my truck is. When you get on the gas sometimes it lags instead of taking off, but that's no biggie. I love my truck!

I bought a used 2003 chevy Silverado 4x4 z71 with bose package. I am tech the 3rd owner. It came from Texas and then the second owner was a dealer whom I bought it off of. It had 220k miles on it but runs/drives like new. I recently took it on a 2700 mile road trip and it ran great. The 5.3L motor is very responsive. The interior spoils me. Especially the dual climate controls. I am very pleased. I used to own a 2005 ford f150 4x4 with the 5.4L engine and I feel I traded up.

the right truck at the right price

by from murphysboro, il on March 19, 2013

I had a great experience at Vogler. My salesman was Bill Manis. He went above and beyond to satisfy our needs! We love Vogler!
