RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN. I have a 2021 Chevrolet Silverado RST 4x4 with only 16,000 miles brand new off the lot in 2021. The solenoid control valve in the transmission went out 02/19/2024. I had to have it towed to the dealership. General Motors Warranty has yet to reimburse me for my tow bill. The vehicle has been setting at the dealership ever since. They claim they can't get the parts to fix my vehicle. My family has owned Chevrolet's for the last 50 years but this will be the last. I contacted GM for a buy back or swap and that was denied. I am basically paying payments and full coverage insurance on a vehicle I can't even drive. I am so disgusted with Chevrolet and GM. Trade not an option due to vehicle is inoperable they don't want to give anything for it.


Beauty Truck

I drove a '99 Silverado Standard Cab 6 cyl for 24 years & decided it was time. I flirted with Ram & Tundra but when it came down to it, I've got Chevy in my blood & found what I think is a special vehicle. I'm still learning, lots of buttons, bells & whistles but think I'm gonna love this truck. It's big, real big, you have to plan for some driving/parking experiences ahead of time because it can't do what a single cab did. Would have preferred the 5.3 but ended up with a 6.2 but wow, power on demand, this baby moves. No need to worry about passing granny anymore.


1st truck in 20 years.

My Silverado runs and drives perfectly. My only complaint is the paint job. Every week when I clean the truck I find new nicks in the paint. Almost like there's no primer. I'm concerned about resale value because no matter how careful I am and I'm an older driver, paint is getting worse every day.


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)

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.
