2008 Chevy Silverado 1500.

I have had no problems with the vehicle. No problems under the hood with the engine or transmission. Regular maintenance on the vehicle has allowed me to see no problems up to this point. The vehicle is has always been reliable. Performance is good. Comfort level is good. Seats are comfortable and do not get tough to sit in even while traveling long distances. Headrests do not cause any neck stiffness after a long distance. Vehicle has good features. Automatic windows, AUX port, on-star, Sirius XM radio, power door locks, and cruise control.

- Tim W

It is a long-lasting vehicle and for the most part is very dependable.

It is very tough on gas is not very reliable when it comes to towing anything and tires for my truck are very expensive. The four wheel drive works good and is very reliable when it comes to slick roads it is load capacity is not the best butt for what it is it works would like to add another spring to it may be with bigger shocks and struts worried is able to haul a little more the motor has been reliable no big issues with that or the transmission all in all it is a good truck.

- David C

Good truck that holds it is value when taken care of properly.

Our 2008 Silverado looks as good as it did in 2018. It has held up well. The only real complaint we have is that it is hard on gas and does not get good mileage. We've had no trouble with it considering that we've only put 46000 miles on it in 10 years. We did drive it to South Carolina and back and it was a very comfortable ride. It is a big truck and sometimes it is very difficult to park. Need to put a pillow on the seat to be able to see over the front fenders.
