Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado?
Exterior looks good.
Road handling is pretty good for a truck.
Has decent leg room in the front.
Got it from dealership with parrot bluetooth car kit, weatherguard toolbox, and bed coating.
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Chevrolet Silverado?
The engine sucks!(v6) Never get better than 17 mpg freeway driving, usually around 15-16 mpg, and that's babying the damn thing. And don't even look like you wanna pull out into traffic unless there's a 1/4 mile gap between you and the oncoming traffic. And passing someone forget about it. The motor is very weak. Which leads into the transmission, it doesn't like to downshift when you need it too, and by the time you let off the accelerator, it decides it's time to down shift. Had the same prob with my 2006 Silverado (which eventually blow the tranny due to a faulty speed sensor). Door seals leak, and have since it was bought brand new, road noise is atrocious. Cab vibration is out of control. Front end is too low in comparison to the rear. These trucks don't have a cabin filter(s), and working in dust and dirt all day, it pointless to clean the interior, because the dust just blows everywhere. The engine is also designed so the plug wires (yes plug wires!) run through the middle of the exhaust manifold piping, and get melted and need replacing. The CEL is constantly on and off for reasons unknown (on-star is a joke for diagnosis by the way, because if the light is off when they send the monthly diagnosis, it doesn't report it.) Front tires wear on the inside for some reason. Constant rotation is a must. Due to the lack of a cabin filter, the cd player wont eject discs due to the dust. I could go on but those are the main problems with this thing.
2008 Chevrolet Silverado Review:
If you're gonna buy one, get the v8 models. V6 1500 is a joke. It's a full size truck with a SUV motor.
