I am the original owner of this vehicle. I purchased it as a commuter and have never had any mechanical problems. It has been serviced at Chevy dealers in both Calgary and Airdrie. It is a fun truck to drive and I have never been stuck in the snow or lost traction on ice. Even though it has a V6 it still has quite a bit of power. The only downside it that there is road noise from the beefy tires.
