Summary of a 2008 heavy duty truck.

Cracked dash is the major problem, it cracked for no reason and I see a lot of other people with the same problem. Performance and reliability seems to be good for the most part. But when something does go wrong and it gets fixed it seems like something else goes wrong. So it's a never ending battle. It could be a lot of comfortable, seats are a little stiff. Features are good tho.

It is not just a truck, it is family!

Totally reliable, never had a problem. Chevy's have the best comfort of all vehicles. The instruments are easy to read and understand. I drive my vehicle everyday and love it. I would recommend a Chevy to all. My truck always gets comments on how beautiful it looks. Its quality from start to finish. It performs and never lets me down.

Great truck, but very expensive.

Hard to get to glow plugs and if they go out it is very expensive to replace. For 4 glow plugs it will cost me in excess of $700 after taxes. The truck's diesel regen feature is excessively frustrating due to it wasting precious fuel. Overall, I really like the truck, but the features are easy to break and are insanely costly.

This is a superb vehicle for anyone who needs a truck.

A 4 wheel drive dependable diesel with turbo is an excellent safe and reliable daily driver. Leather seats and a crew cab provides spacious comfortable riding. A fold down DVD player in the back with Bose stereo provides entertainment. This truck is made for performance and durability.

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.

Truck has great exterior and interior features.

Hauls anything and great gas mileage for a truck. It has so many great features that my family and I enjoy. Like to haul anything I can when I can and has great horsepower.Awesome interior and has enough room for six people to fit comfortably and our dog.

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.

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.

My truck is very loud. And that it rusts very easily

I have always been a Chevy fan. The only real thing I don't like about it is how it has rusted so quickly. Other than that I have no complaints about it

Towing capacity and bed storage capacity.

I like the towing capacity and bed storage. The problems are it is not very fuel efficient and is too big to fit inside of parking garages.

No you can't drive it. No I won't come get you out of a muddy field you don't belong in any way.

I love it other than only being an extended cab. I miss the room of the crew cab we had before. The grand babies car seat is a tight fit.
