This is a well equipped vehicle with lots of extra amenities.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

My vehicle is dependable, reliable. I have been very satisfied with its performance. I keep it up and it has never given me any trouble. I have been driving it for almost 10 years. It has been probably the best overall vehicle that I have owned. It has held up well in every way. Cosmetically it still looks almost as good as it did when it was brand new. Consequently, I have to say it has held its resale value quite well. It's relatively comfortable riding especially for a pickup. Behind the wheel it is very easy handling. I would be comfortable recommending a Chevy Silverado 4-door pickup to anyone. It's roomy enough for a family with 2 or 3 young children, and space in the bed for a couple of dogs. It's a versatile vehicle. It also can hold up well as a work truck for any kind of work.

Great reliable runaround vehicle if you need to haul light cargo.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

Fuel mileage has been good, I drive a lot of miles. It has a small v-8. And 2wd. I have had a few problems, but nothing terrible. Had a spring pop off of one of my lifters in the engine and that caused the engine to run rough. There is always an engine light on and also the traction control light is constantly on. I am having paint issues. The clear coat has bubbled up in a few spots around windows and doors. The cab is a single cab and is cramped for a 5'9' man but it is functional. I can not complain. It is reliable.i'll buy another one in the future. Hopefully with a larger cab.

Dependable economically good gas mileage.

2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

I like the truck in the winter because we live in a rural area. There is a lot of room and an extended cab. There is plenty of room in the bed of the truck and it a reliable vehicle. It would be good for a long trip and gets good gas mileage. It will last for many more miles.

- Mary R

dependable equipment. It is dependable and durable

2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

In 210000 miles I have pulled trailers as I have the towing package I had the transmission rebuilt wouldn't trade it off as I use it everyday for work and pleasure. It is a durable and dependable pickup. With all the miles it is still a nice looking truck.
