Overall very good truck for average person.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

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.

Let's go to the back 40, do some fishing and mudding.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

The door lock actuators are losing power. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. But other than that it's still operating fine. I love the power when I turn off limp mode. And even though its a 2 wheel drive, with some good off road tires it CSN trek into some pretty soggy terrains. And depending on what you're used to the mpg can be a little hard to swallow at 15 -16 miles per gallon. I've had trucks that only got 10-12 mpg so 15-16 ain't that bad

Silverado is the perfect work truck or casual truck it will never fail you.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

This truck has over 200k miles on it and I've had very minimal problems with it, the only problems I've had was the door actuators going out, the locks breaking, and a lifter in the engine going out, but that was mainly because of a poor decision to try a new type of oil in it which broke my lifter and caused the problem, I've since fixed the problem and have had no issues whatsoever from it.

Extended cab Chevy Silverado 1500 with lt trim.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

Really good vehicle never had a problem. It is comfortable and very roomy. It has enough towing power to haul smaller things such as small trailers or boats. And it gets decent gas mileage 16-18 miles per gallon. I would highly recommend this vehicle for people who are taller and may need something to haul medium sized items, but still want to have an economical choice for travel.

Fun to drive. Easy to take care of all of the maintenance.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

This truck is a really dependable vehicle. It has not had any major problems. The only things I have replaced were the ball joints. It does well driving on the highway. Driven it all over Texas and Oklahoma. The seats are very comfortable. The only thing I wish it had was a sunroof. It pulls trailers without any problem. It is like nothing is even on the trailer.

Reliable Vehicle - One Minor Complaint

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

Very reliable vehicle. I bought my truck used, it is currently 11 years old with 127000 miles on it, and I haven't had any major problems. My only complaint is the headlights go out frequently, and it isn't easy to change the lights, you have to take the entire grill off which is a pain. They go out at least once (each) per year.

Loving life in my 2008 Chevy Silverado.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 170k miles. Other than basic upkeep it has been a dream. Still waiting on airbag recall... No luck and it's been 4 years. I wish I would have gotten 4 doors instead of 3 at times but I don't have that much need that it is a big deal. Lots of power & room... No complaints.

Charcoal grey stock lift with 22 inch rims & a squarish body

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

I love my Silverado! It drives smoothly. It's good on gas 14 mpg as a matter of fact but seems to go lots longer. The AC is super cold. I'm beyond comfortable driving it. All my tire pressure sensors work & my lights have never turned on. It's a pretty old truck but runs like it's brand new

2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 - Running Strong

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

I have had very few problems with my truck, the most notable being the slip-yoke. I purchased the truck used with 40k miles on the odometer, and am over 150k miles. Leather seats, and power windows, locks, and seats are still functioning like they did on day one.

- Alexis C

Very trustworthy and versatile vehicle

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT w/1LT

From my experience I would highly recommend a Chevy pick up truck. Mechanically they have been very reliable for me both currently and in the past. That are both comfortable to ride in and have always been held up and been a very reliable vehicle for me.
