Owned Chevrolet for my whole life but never again

Have owned this vehicle since new and it has been nothing but an absolute nightmare. Endless emission issues electrical issues exhaust issues and interior problems. It has been the definition of a money pit. Just had to finally get used to the check engine light because it's constantly on. I have a hundred and forty thousand miles on it now and I adventure to say I've got more in repairs than I paid for the truck off the lot. That is not even considering the warranty work. I've taken the emissions off and it's still unreliable and still gets terrible fuel mileage. If you're looking at a used one run away!


LTZ rides with style

This is the truck I was looking for. Well taken care of previous owners, highly regarded as a trade-in and locally available. For a work truck with power, this is definitely the truck for the boss.


great truck but chevys rust

Great truck mechanically, lots of power but the wheel wells rust quickly even with proper maintenance. Has a better turning radius than my dodge. Would recommend this truck.
