Overall very good truck for average person.
My 2008 Silverado pickup is a comfortable ride, it does not ride like a work truck but more like an SUV. I have had several issues over the last few years where the air condition did not work properly and several switches quit working. For example, the window controls on the driver's side will only work for 2 of the 4 windows and the cruise control can be finicky. Overall, the truck performs pretty well, it takes off good and stops as expected. It is also pretty reliable, I have not had a situation where the truck left me stranded, ice only had 'comfort' related issues with the truck. The motor and engine and functional aspects work just fine. I like the features that are included, there are separate controls for the driver and passenger heat & ac. It only has the basic heat, ac, and radio controls on the dash and they are simple enough that I feel comfortable using them while driving.
