Great Truck, Comfortable, Goes Through A Lot of Gas

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

The truck is comfortable, but it does go through a lot of gas. The truck hauls cargo and trailers very easily. I have high mileage: 280,000+ miles, and I haven't had too many problems, just buying a new battery, power steering pump, hoses, things like that. No big problems. It's a good truck with good ac and rides smooth. My only concern is the gas mileage.

- Tara M

Everything is great and I can rely on the truck and everything is perfect.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Well my vehicle is a great pick up truck and it takes me where I need to go but there is some problem s but not alot and has great miles and don't waste a lot of gas for a pick up truck. And glad that all my light works and great help with loading stuff like if your moving or even just for work with the heavy things.
