      Silverado's to buy or not to buy.

      2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      It is a lifted Silverado. It drives well but it struggles some when pulling trailers and the gas mileage decreases significantly. I have owned several different Silverado's over the years and never have run into any major issues but I do make sure to have the oil changed as directed and regular maintenance done. I believe that is important to ensure the longevity of a vehicle.

      Ok Truck but can buy better

      2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      Tires that were purchased with truck wore out after 30000 miles and had to be replaced. No floor mats were installed with the car. Dealership said they would be included, but they were not. The vehicle also did not come with cameras. Other than the issues, the truck was ok.

      - Bill T

      Very cool color and is a head turner.

      2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      My truck has great storage and versatility when off road. It has helped make work projects easy with its bed size. I have used the 4x4 ' lot and it has proven to be reliable even over rough terrain. I would like to see more options for replacement parts though

      - Dustin C

      2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS
