Love our Chevy Silverado!

Overall a great truck! There was a recall on a cable for the tailgate. After being fixed we have had no problems with it. Very reliable truck! Haven't had any major issues. The plastic handles on the back doors have cracked and needed to be replaced. Blaming that on age of truck and cold MN winters. The kids would like more leg room in the back seat. I believe there is in the newer models. Tows our boat and snowmobiles with ease. Love that we can haul our 4-wheeler in the box with the tailgate closed. Love our Chevy!

My brakes started to squeak. I had original pads. It has almost 180, 000 miles.

I love my truck. The only thing I do not like about it is the amount of gas it uses. The ride is very comfortable, has lots of power, and is my trustworthy vehicle. My truck just has the basic features, but I am not one for all of the luxuries. I have a bed liner that is a must as it keeps the bed of your truck nice, if you ever want to take it out. I just had my brake pads changed, and I had the original pads and I was told I took very good care of my truck. I have almost 180, 000 miles, so this was amazing to me.

The 2004 Chevy Silverado 8 years down the road.

I purchase my vehicle about 8 years ago preowned. It has been a pretty reliable truck. I am currently at 165k miles and am starting to see a few of the normal problems that I have been told by mechanics are typical for my Silverado. I have recently developed an exhaust leak and a rear main seal leak and an oil pan leak from a worn gasket. My paint just started to peel off this year. I am at the point where I am trying to decide if I want to look into a newer vehicle or invest into a new transmission and engine.
