Comfortable but Unreliable
The vehicle is very comfortable; it drives like a Cadillac quite honestly. But that’s where the good ends.
At just over 60,000 miles (coincidentally right after the power train warranty expired) a lifter on my truck went causing a push rod to be bent. Luckily the issue did not cause any major engine damage, but still set me back over $2,000 the have the issue fixed. I brought the issue up to both a local Chevy dealership and GM customer care, both of which explained that because I was just past the warranty that I was on my own and had to fix the vehicle out of my own pocket. Quite a large expense so early in the truck’s life.
In addition to this, from the very beginning of my ownership of this truck at ~30,000 miles, there were issues with the infotainment system not allowing me to adjust the volume, the only fix being resetting the system.
It cannot haul ANYTHING without putting massive strain on the vehicle. Towing an empty trailer, and a very small one at that, you can clearly notice the load. To compare, my late 90s Dodge had a few thousand pounds in the bed and another few thousand in the trailer and I couldn’t even feel the weight being pulled.
Not surprisingly, due to the truck’s inability to haul, the transmission is quite lackluster; clanking and forcefully banging into gear as you increase RPM, for example going up a hill from a stop or slow roll.
I would not purchase another Chevy other than a work truck to buy used for very little money and have a short life expectancy.
