2014 Silverado/Sierra

Nice update. Everything looks good except the too-squarish/Terrain fenders.

Just read a little about them also. I would appreciate something other than a brick for a front end. You would think they could get a couple highway mpg just with a little more aerodynamic design.

Do not want. F-150 is a better looking truck.

As is the Ram.

I told my wife just this morning that my next truck will be a Ford or Ram...this confirms it.

My truck has 48K miles on it and I just spent $1200 getting all 4 ball joints replaced.

Oh, and the shop gave me a loaner...a Toyota Matrix with 150K miles on it. What a complete pile of crap.

Not anymore. I drove it about 3 miles to work and 3 miles back. Wow, was that thing a pile of crap! Engine was noisy and gutless, wind noise was horrible and it felt like I was driving a tin can on wheels. How people can drive little shitboxes like these every day is beyond my comprehension.

They couldn't give you a comparable rental?

It is a small shop. I am surprised they even offer a loaner. They have a total of 2 loaner cars. This Matrix and a VW Jetta. There was not even any paperwork...they just gave me the key and sent me on my way.

What year Matrix? If it is the first Gen, 2003-2008, what do you expect from a 1.8 with 126 or 130 HP (unless it was the XRS)?

..maybe those "little shitboxes" are all that they want and/or can afford. Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to afford a sports car, boat and a truck

With the amount of miles on it, I'm guessing it was the base model. XRS is more expensive, and would not be used as a rental.
