It is very dependable for our needs.

Drives good in all weather, no matter if it is raining or snowing or even hot or real cold. A good farm truck to hook up horse trailer or put plenty of feed in the back. Does what we need done. Haul hay, horse feed, chicken feed, groceries, or even all our grandkids.

- Donna T

Truck - horse hauling vehicles.

So far no problems. Front right tire seems to wear down quicker than the others. Other than that the truck is a great vehicle that does it is job well hauling our horses.

- Ashley S

That the truck is dependable. I've had very few issues with it in the 8 years I've owned it.

The Duramax diesel is reliable, powerful and durable. Great towing rig for all my trailers. Only negative is some of the cheap plastic interior pieces that broke quickly.
