Chevy; reliable, dependable, built like a rock..

I bought my truck upon graduating college. I've always been a 'truck guy' and loyal to Chevy trucks. I drove it off the lot with 5 miles and was extremely happy. To this day I am very happy how my truck has treated me.. My truck has 240K miles and has never had a 'major' issue.. I have been pretty good with maintaining maintenance schedule. Till this day, I have my trucks battery changed 7 times, water pump 3 times, brakes serviced as needed,.. I've recently had its AC unit not work so I have to get that fixed before summer. Performance wise, my truck has done everything I've asked it. I've towed 'small weight' items. As far as reliability, I've never have it fail on me. Comfort wise, my truck is very comfortable and 'roomie'. The only downside is that since it's an older model truck, I currently have to connect my phone via an Auxiliary cable.

Buy dealerships I whether you buy Silverado they all have 3 cup holders or more.

Chevrolet Silverado extended cab moves really good over bumps in the road potholes and is good off-roading and we can tow other cars or a trailer we've had our truck for over 10 years now and it still runs great I kind of wish we got it a different color but other than that everything works great camping with the truck is fun all you really need to do is bring a mattress and just put it in the back and some blankets and you just sit up at night and stare at the stars me and my family we've all had a great time in the truck and now it is going down to the second generation it is built strong it is reliable we've always but for me Chevrolet they're great.

Rusting problem 05 Silverado

I bought the truck brand new and from day one the truck is gutless it will not spin a tire not that I want to but when you pull out and didn't see a car and have to step on it can't get itself out of its own way.The biggest problem I baby this truck always wash it had 5000 dollars of extras stuff I did to the truck including undercoating custom paint running boards spray in bedliner and as well as I took care of it it is rusted out so bad right now there are no rocker panel left the frame is rotted almost in half even the bumpers are rusting through and that should not be that bad on that year truck that has been cared for so well.
