Good truck if you do the right things

The best thing about this truck is the fuel economy. Bought brand new in 2012 and when the truck hit 35000KM the fuel economy improved. I had heard about that before but didn't believe it. Beware, these trucks are known for transmission shutter and shifting problems like every GM product ever. Do not flush the transmission ever. Pull the pan and replace the oil three times every 40 of 50 KM. It costs a bit but the tranny will shift much better and last. The door handles are garbage. They cost 25 bucks on Amazon. Changed two now. Changed washer fluid sensor. Front breaks and rotors are cheap. Replace with high end aftermarket when they go...and they will. Over 200 Km on this vehicle now. Motor is strong and the truck is still holding up well. I would give it a 5 if GM would get their transmission issues fixed one day. A little higher quality front end parts would put them over the top. Good ride, roomy and comfortable.

Perfect pickup for my needs.

It's a great truck period. It has a short enough wheelbase to turn in a short radius, plenty of power, very comfortable. Been looking for this truck for a long time.

4.6

absolutely love this truck

This is the most reliable vehicle I’ve ever owned. The only issue I’ve ever had with it is the gas mileage. There are so many aftermarket options for these to make them better and better.
