Comfortable, roomy Chevy Silverado.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

My 2012 Chevy Silverado has not had any manufacturer problems. It has been a great, dependable vehicle, with comfortable seating and plenty of legroom, cup holders and storage space. It is easy to see out of without any blind spots to cause trouble. The only downfall is the gas mileage which is about 16 mpg, but considering it is a truck I suppose it's normal. I particularly love the storage space in the doors and the extra space in the console. I feel safe in it, but sometimes feel that it is too big for my short stature getting in and out of. It does have cloth seats that are not the best feeling in our opinion, so we have always had seat covers on the seats. Overall it's a great vehicle, drives well and has some great features. It is a truck you can use for work or family travels and has always stood up to its Chevrolet name!

Chevy truck was an awesome buy!

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

A comfort that would have made getting in a bit easier would be a handle to haul yourself up into the truck on the driver's side. There's one on every other door except the driver's, and crawling up into it can be a chore. The gas mileage is great, can go for a week or a week and a half without having to fill up.

It has really good steering.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

It's a good truck. It just needs to be updated because it's 7 years old. I have problems with the wheels losing air pressure and my seats are cloth so they stain real easy. The sealant around my window is old and needs to be replaced. I can hear the wind through it really bad when I'm driving.

Nice, older, white Chevrolet.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

For starters, I really enjoy driving bigger vehicles, but I do not want something that is too big. My current vehicle is perfect. It is a slightly older vehicle, so it does not have all the amenities that some of the vehicles do, but I do not need all of that extra stuff.

My Chevy and where it takes me.

2012 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck

It is a reliable sturdy truck that provides us the chance to go hunting in beautiful Colorado's forests. We have no worries about car trouble ever since we got our new Chevy truck. On long drives the speaker system really sticks out. All around a great truck.
