My Chevrolet is very reliable vehicle. While I do love it is durability and extended back the size of the pickup is a little awkward but after driving it for a bit it can becomes easier. I haven't had any trouble with the engine or any other parts but have heard many others complain. Some other things that make the truck simple but easy is its manual rollup windows and door locking. The seats are fairly simple as well and the only shortcoming is its limited seating of 3 and if you fill it up get ready to be comfortable with your passenger because they'll be right up against you. The gas mileage is another thing to keep in mind, in my home state of washington it costs around $80 dollars to fill the tank but can run on the tank for almost 3 weeks on a busy schedule. Color can be another factor in your choice, my Chevy is white and while it looks nice it does take a lot of effort to maintain its shine and glory as using it for its intended purpose of moving loads of debris and other waste leaves marks. The airflow and conditioning is also excellent, compared to my friend's and family's cars my pickup truck is praised for it is fast working and effective air conditioning giving me the edge when it comes to summer time travel. I cannot give any recommendations on it is long distance travel as I personally stay close to home but it does get me around and makes me proud to be a owner of such a beautiful truck. Trucks are not for everyone and this one takes a while to get comfortable with so if you like a good simple and reliable truck a Chevy would fit your needs.
My reliable Chevy Silverado truck.
Our 2006 light gray Silverado is a four wheel drive pickup truck. It has a back seat but not four doors. There is a door for the back but it folds up with the front door if you know what I mean. We bought the truck when it was one year old. It has been a great truck for us. We drove it 90 miles daily to work several years. Now we use it daily still since we are retired. It has 150, 000+ miles on it. We have never had to do anything major to it. We just had brakes, tires, and the usual wear and tear repairs. I am not certain of the gas mileage but I would say we get around 16-17 which is good for an older, high mileage truck. If I were looking to buy a new truck, this is exactly what I would buy again. The truck is great for hauling.
Great utility truck year-round.
I love this vehicle. It has a lot of power. Great in long trips. It is true a vehicle whose primary purpose is for individuals who work outside. I haven't had major problems with the vehicle. It has been dependable and awesome to use in heavy duty jobs. My husband and I have a fertilization and snow removal company. For the job that we are required to do, this vehicle are been helpful in transporting materials that we need in the job all year round. The only downside to this vehicle is the fuel type and the cost of fuel used in it.
But overall it performs beautifully.

What Is The Rating System
We’re rating cars based on Style, Performance, Comfort, Quality, Safety, Features, and
categories start at 5 (average) and go up or down from there.
Style: Points can be earned or lost based on above- or below-average
interior and exterior style;
excellent or poor interior or exterior style; and exceptional (or very poor) style.
Performance: Points can be earned or lost based on powertrain
braking and handling
performance; ride quality; and transmission. An additional point can be awarded (or
exceptional circumstances, i.e. off-road prowess, or supercar credentials.
Comfort: Points can be earned or lost based on comfort in the front
back seats, or third-row
seats (where applicable); good or bad interior storage; and good cargo capacity. Cars,
trucks with significant cargo capacity can earn an additional point.
Safety: Cars with official crash data gain points for a five-star
rating by the NHTSA, or Top
Safety Pick status by the IIHS. Cars with Top Safety Pick+ status are awarded an
those advanced safety features. An additional point is awarded for cars with exceptional
features such as parking assistance, surround-view camera systems, or autonomous-driving
Cars with official crash data lose points for a four-star overall rating by NHTSA,
ratings by the
IIHS, any three-star NHTSA ratings, no standard rearview camera, poor outward vision, or
notes by the IIHS or federal testers. Cars without crash data aren’t given a rating at
Features: Cars with excellent base equipment earn a point above
Extra points can be
added for exceptional available features, good customization options, good infotainment
with screens larger than 5.0 inches, and good warranty or service programs. Cars may
sub-standard or expensive features; bad feature packages; poor relative value; or bad
Green: Cars are assigned a rating based on their EPA-estimated highway
ratings. Plug-in and battery-electric vehicles start at 8. Electric-only cars with a
of more than
250 miles; plug-in electric cars with an EV range of more than 50 miles; or cars with a
equivalent MPGe rating of more than 100 mpg earn a perfect score.

It’s not like grade school. Our ratings go from 1-10 with 5 being an average score. In

How Do We Get There?
For most ratings, we start at 5 and work our way up—or down. Cars gain and lose points

Some of our ratings are based on specific criteria. Safety ratings, for example, are
crash data from both of the major U.S. safety organizations. Green scores are calculated
estimates from the EPA.
All of our ratings are open to the public. Wherever possible, we’ll tell you how we’ve

why we arrived at the score we did.
We’ve added an “N/A” rating. For cars without official crash safety ratings or other
authorities, we’ve removed those numbers from the overall score to give readers a better
