My Chevy Silverado is a 2008 z71 4x4 LT cab and a half with 102,000 miles on it

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

The vehicle is very comfortable to drive. The issues I have with it are mostly cosmetic. The switches to roll down the back windows on the rear doors have come loose and pop out regularly but they still work. Also the dashboard has a large crack in it probably from sitting out in the sun so I had to buy a fitted mat to go over the dashboard so nothing falls into the crack. The only other complaint I have about the vehicle is when you give it gas in order to maneuver quickly there is a pretty significant delay before the engines rpm increases and it shifts gear to speed up.

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

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

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.

Pure unleaded gasoline. . Problem I am having is my sensor, indicating my left tire pressure is low and I check all tires before I go anywhere. . Great for long trips and 2 people. . Thank you.

Reliable, comfortable, and roomy

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

We love this car! It is really comfortable for long drives, and rides very nicely. It provides a comfortable ride, with plenty of legroom in both the front and back seats. We have never had a problem with the reliability of the car, we know when we go outside that it's going to start, and have no worries when we go on long road trips in it. Highly recommend this vehicle!

- Madison R

I met my future finance when I just bought the truck.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Most reliable driving equipment except when it comes to replacing vacuum hose, spark plugs, and identifying any oil leaks. Sometimes you may have to shop around for replacement parts that do not cost an arm or leg. But please be sure that you never substitute quality over quantity, a little extra spending goes a long way. If, you can spare to do so.

The Pro's and Con's of owning my vehicle

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

The transmission runs very smooth, along with it being very well on gas but the only problem I've had with the vehicle is being the tires. In addition to the tires I have found that during the years of owning my car the tires is the only problem that has shown with this brand or type of vehicle.

Get around family mobile!!

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

I love my little family get around work truck!it's the right size for me. It gets my kids to school great, it's perfect for my husband when he needs to load something big or haul something. I do not recommend taking it on long trips there is no cruise control A/C and heater work amazing

- Randy B

I love how spacious the truck is in the back.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Not too many problems so far, smooth ride, durable, plenty of space in the backseat, there's actually an extra seat in the front middle that I love. It does use up a lot of gas but other than that I love the truck. I would most definitely purchase another vehicle that is made by Chevy.

2008 Chevy Silverado Work Truck

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Truck has been great over the years, very little mechanical problems. Slight problem with rust on the doors. Have hit two deer with no effects and excellent for hauling bikes and kayaks. Not very much room in the cab, but plenty of room in the truck bed for a toolbox for extra storage.

- Jon O

The transmission goes out.

2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

Transmission went fast in my truck. Within two weeks off the lot the my transmission busted. I did buy it used but still expected it to run longer off the lot. Once I got it fixed it acted up again, leading me to have to buy a 3rd tranny. So if you get this truck, keep it maintained.
