Alarm system works great of something goes wrong.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

I haven't had any problems so far. It is comfortable. Ride better than most cars. Back seats folds up for more room if hauling things you do not want to get wet if it is raining. Controls are easy to see. Dual heat and air controls. Will run on flex fuel, but I have never tried because there is now where around here to buy flex fuel.

The power of pewter in a standard truck

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

This is the base level standard duty truck. It has enough power to perform light to standard duty functions such as towing and hauling. It's very reliable, great gas mileage and is easy on the eyes. It's easy to keep clean, inside and out. The trim on it blends in well and doesn't clash with the main color of the truck whatsoever

My Silverado 4x4. Love this truck.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

My truck is comfortable and roomy. It handled well and has many extra features It rides well for a 4 wheel drive truck. It is quiet, has an excellent sound system. The gas Mileage is as you would expect in a full size 4 wheel drive truck. It has 4 doors and seat six comfortably

Stuff I use truck for and issues

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

The only issue I have had was transmission related but was covered under vehicle warranty. Other than that love the vehicle. Trim and truck fit my needs, big enough to haul kids and able to take it to woods where I go hunting. Able to haul stuff from house to landfill and from store.

Great truck! Love it so much!!

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

Not really any problems I can think of. It's really a great truck I use it for everything. It tows really good and has a lot of power. Enough space to fit 6 people comes in handy for road trips and stuff like that. You can also do a lot of upgrades to it if you want.

- Joshua T

Awesome all around truck! Always get comments about how beautiful she is.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

We love our truck, driven it across country twice with no issues whatsoever. The extended cab makes it very comfortable to travel in - most of our things (no matter how long the trip) will fit in the cab with us. Drives awesome, smooth steering and ride!

- Kelly G
