I bought my Silverado new a little over a year ago and have accumulated 38,000 trouble free miles. It is a black 4x4 LT standard cab/ bed with factory installed drop in bed liner, chrome step rails, power seat, and 20" wheels (I had the dealer swap out for alloy ones from a Tahoe instead of the heavier chrome ones).
The minor flaws mainly consist of interior fit and finish. The front panel of the dash over the stereo doesn't fit well into the dash and the power window control pod on the driver's door is already loose. And the biggest issue I have is that the rear part of the roof has a low bulkhead to it, which at 6'05" is a major inconvenience considering how tall the rest of the roof is.
One of the coolest things about this truck is the "Auto" mode on the four wheel drive selector. It allows the truck to operate in two wheel drive until slip is detected, it then automatically switches to four wheel drive.
I find the gas mileage to be on par with the Nissan Titan this truck replaced. The weird part is that the Nissan was a larger and heavier crew cab with a larger engine without the cylinder disabling that Chevy claims. There is no reason why I should be getting 18mpg on the highway in a small full size truck.
I have done some towing, which this truck performed well in. I pulled a loaded moving trailer roundtrip from MD to SC without issues, but averaged 13mpg in the process.
I paid $6k below sticker and at that price its a great little truck. It would be better if they spent just a little more time fixing the little things.
