Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD Reviews
The speaker have fallen apart on the passenger side in the door and the sound quality was poor from the start. The lights for the heater switch fail right after the warranty ran out. The first problem was the front wheel bearings they went bad within the first 20,000 thousand miles, shortly after the O2 sensors failed twice and were replaced under warranty.
I bought my Silverado brand new in 2005. Love the truck and will have it for many years.
