don't know if i can disspell anyone elses experiances with newer chevys.
like i said above, we have a all chevy light duty fleet. that is because we must keep our trucks for 10 to 12 years or 150K. we have had fords and dodges. they did not last and cost more per mile to repair.
i know of one chevy that had a engine failure, it was because a lineman ran a fence post through the oil pan patrolling power line in the right of way. (it wasn't me b.t.w.)
do our trucks use more oil? some yes, but they are run hard and have many more hours than a regular truck. by that i mean they may use 2 quarts a month.
to they have piston slap? none that i have heard, and i get to drive quite a number of different trucks. that is my experiance, not something off a web site. good or bad.
i think john was reffering to your comment about his truck. lighten up a little, you seem awfully negative most of the time.
