Being an owner of a Chevy Silverado is probably one of my greatest investments.
2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I love Chevy. I grew up with Chevy vehicles, all trucks since I lived in a farm. I currently own a 2011 Silverado 1500. It runs great. It is roomy, the back seats are fairly comfortable. I have a newborn and her car seat fits great. And our two other younger children gave plenty of room in the back. We love having a pick up because it is easy to move big items such as furniture, household appliances, home gardening supplies, really big items that cannot fit in the vehicle. My truck is very dependable. However I do make sure it is maintained well. If you take care of your vehicle and it is maintenance it runs and works better and longer. Some problems I find with my truck is with the turn radius. It is not very easy to turn the wheel to park in parking spots. So I find I have to find spots where no one else is parked just to make it easier on me to park. Another problem, my husband changes the breaks and pads himself and he has trouble taking the wheel parts off. He had to take the truck to pepe boys to have them loosen up some parts on the wheels. There is something squeaking in the truck I think it is the back seat. I really can't pinpoint it. I have googled it and others who own the same vehicle have the same problem. Also the front dash has cracked and keeps getting bigger and bigger. I do live in Florida so the sun inside has had an effect not this. I did find another dash and it is inexpensive and fairly easy to install. I spend a lot on gas each week. But I do not have to use the most expensive fuel so that helps. Gas is expensive so if you are not looking to spend a lot on gas I would suggest not buying a truck or have an alternate vehicle to drive. We owned a Chevy Camaro and it was a great car too. Our younger girls fit comfortably in the back but with the new baby it wasn't easy fitting her in the back. I really love my Chevy Silverado. I have owned a Ford lariat and that was a good truck too but I wouldn't trade my Silverado for another truck unless it were for a brand new Silverado.
