Great Truck

Ive driven 43,000 miles. Runs and drives great. Love the 10 spd transmission for towing. Only issue was a faulty clock spring for heated steer wheel. Under warranty. Has the 6.2 ltr motor


2021 TB LT 5.3L L84

5.3L, 18,000 miles, 2021 TB LT and have had no real issues. Ebrake triggered a warning message which was reset 1,000 miles ago no warning light since. MPG is decent but if you like to drive a vehicle it will be 13-14mpg. Wish the exhaust made real noise and GM loves thier 33's, come on 35s look fantastic. I had a 2017 LT Z71 5.3L L82 and had no issues at 65,000 miles when I traded her in.


DEF found in diesel fuel tank in my new truck

I love my new 2021 Chevrolet high country truck except for the location of Def and Diesel that they are located in the same compartment without any lids to identify the 2, for some strange reason l got Def in my diesel, the insurance company will not pay for this so it’s costing me over $13,0000 out of my own pocket to get fixed and keep the warranty good still. Chevrolet needs to be responsible for this. If this is such a problem that can happen to anyone at anytime. They need to separate the def and the diesel from the same location so that it can not accidentally put DEF into the diesel spout or if someone comes along and puts DEF into your diesel and your insurance will not cover the repairs as they blame you. To fix this huge mistake, Chevrolet will have to correct this by installing locking cover over the spout like most vehicles have and put a fuel cap back on, move the DEF back under the hood in a accessible area. I am saddened by all of this and the cast of all this has set me back as l am only surviving day by day due to all the rising costs today. Hope Chevrolet reads this and others that could potential have this happen to them. My new truck will never be the same again. One more thing to add, the mechanic mentioned that this was the 7 th Chevrolet truck that this happened to this year alone.


Pls read nasa

Only had the 2021 z71 chevy Silverado trail boss 4x4 but so far so good. I've had a few older Silverados and this space ship could take you to the moon NASA!


silverado rating (C)

owned a 2006 2016 2018 all crew cab 1500 series 5.3L my 2021 is the same series it does not come close to the past would not purchase another my 2020 traverse rides responds and has better comfort last time for silverados


Paint flakes and peels

Overall I am very satisfied with my truck however the paint is starting to flake and peel and GMC Canada and the dealer won’t offer any warranty or remedy. Their position is it’s normal wear and tear and happened because of the speed I drive. So if yoi drive the speed limit on highways and short sections of dirt road, this is not the truck for you. Great for city folks who never take it outside of city limits!!!


My chevy truck with 5.3

I was one of the lucky people that purchased my truck with out DFM. Over 10,000 miles on my truck and it has not given me any trouble.


2021 Silverado, 10 speed trans, 3.0 Duramax

My LTZ is a good looking truck and with the 10 speed trans, 3.0 Duramax it makes for a excellent vehicle. We use it to pull our Lance TT which is about 6k pounds full, it gets about 14-15 mpg doing so. In town mpg is around 25. Cons would be I don't like the gear sifter, it's very stiff. The radio display is old school but better then others.


First time ever owning a Chevy and already it.

So I'm a Ford guy and after 25yrs I finally decide to try a Chevy. I really liked the looks of the new body style Silversdo and the price was pretty good ( actually better) compared to the F150 with the same options. So I get a new 2021 Silverado 5.3l 4x4 RST . Three months and 5500 miles later the engine goes belly up. Collapse lifters, bent pushrods and bent rocker arms. Then taking it to the dealership was the worst experience ever but that's a different story. Should have done some homework on any issues with these new trucks. Come to find out the "DFM" Chevy put on these trucks has a horrible design flaw. Look online before you buy because there is quite a bit of people complaining about the same issue. The DFM basically "turns off" lifters so the engine will use less cylinders to save on gas.. so like it's running on only 6 cylinders instead of the 8.. only problem is the lifters aren't really designed for that so they eventually fail. I plan to get a DFM disabled so that the engine will constantly run on all 8 cylinders. And if you already have one of these trucks or know someone that has one.. look into a DFM disabler. I'll see how this works out for the next few years and may be going back to Ford. Now all that being said I do know every manufacturer has problems but this is a pretty serious issue and should be dealt with, eliminate the DFM on future trucks and have a recall to eliminate it from trucks that already have it.


I expected more from CHEVY

I love my truck!! let me say that 1st but, as of this week I have only had my truck sents March 22nd just made the 2nd payment , the day after that my TRANSMISSION went with out WARNING!!! seriously GM still hasn’t fixed the 8 speed issue at all! I’m currently stuck in a loaner car! Upset over 59 thousand spent on a truck with 6,680 miles on it to leave me stranded at a Sams club!?! Again NO WARNING!! Parked went in came out started my truck put it in drive RPMS went up I went no where ! Put it in reverse RPMS went up I went no where ! Had to call a tow truck!!!! Again I expected more from Chevy !! This is my 1st brand new vehicle and I’m Chevy loyal !! But this makes me wonder WTH!!! The infotainment system is buggy as well black screen issues on the 10 inch screen but that’s minor again compared to the current issue I have , so they are tearing down my transmission as we speak ! Maybe I got unlucky but I am now worried how many times this will happen and what if I’m way out if town !!!!
