The gas mileage is terrible. Average mpg is 13. 8.

The 2004 Chevy 1500 has a lot of problems when you get around 100, 000 miles. The transmission had to be rebuilt and I have replaced almost everything to do with the drivetrain and suspension. Interior is nice and It's a very ergonomic design however there is limited movement on the seat adjustments. The rear seats are comfortable and I have taken passengers on long rides without complaints. The steering is nice and smooth but the turn radius is not the best and I find myself pulling more "w-turns" than "y-turns". Also make sure you have some weight in the bed when Its raining otherwise you will find yourself spinning around every turn just like snow covered roads.

Most dependable vehicle I ever owned and most interior room.

A very reliable truck with enough power to haul or pull its weight no matter the motor. Has built in tow capability controls. The dual air controls are really nice. Very roomy inside with plenty of room in cab. I can have the seat all the way back and passengers in back have plenty of room. I like the ability to be able to put it in 4WD while I am driving. I like working on it myself because there's plenty of room to get to everything and you do not need a wide range of tools to do it. Most parts are 100, 000 mile parts so they last for years. Most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. Has no problem going off-road or in bad weather even pulling a trailer in ice.

It�s a Chevy everyone who has owned one knows they can take a lick.

My Chevy has been a very dependable vehicle I drive it from Maryland to Georgia almost every other week. I have leather seats which are very comfy. It rides very well for a older truck. Problems I've had are knock sensors going out causing reduced power. Throttle body sensors and throttle body itself going out causing random codes to shut my engine down into reduced power mode. Other than that just simple wear and tear things that are needed to be replaced and fixed. Been a very reliable vehicle for the year. It's also a fun truck to play in haha.
